Yesterday evening at the LA International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, executives of Polaris/Indian unveiled to the press the very limited edition 2013 Indian Chief Vintage FE (for Final Edition.) It is the last version of the Kings Mountain era Indian Chiefs before the release of the brand new Polaris/Indian model in 2013 during Sturgis Bike Week. A stunning and powerful bike (105″ PowerPlus engine), it features the 1939 World’s Fair paint scheme of Thunder Black and Indian Red with gold pinstripes. To make it even more distinctive, each Final Edition features a numbered frame badge. So you know your exact place in the Indian legacy.
The 2013 Indian Chief FE marks the end of an era and is a tribute to all that was and all that will be. Steve Menneto, Polaris Industries Vice President of Motorcycles said: “We are working hard designing and building the new Indian Motorcycle, but we knew it was important to honor and celebrate the long and proud heritage of Indian Motorcycle. The Kings Mountain era played a key role in that continuing history. The Final Edition is an acknowledgement of our gratitude to the team at Kings Mountain for sustaining the Indian Motorcycle story and its heritage as America’s original motorcycle brand.” MSRP of the 2013 Indian Chief Vintage Final Edition starts at $37,599 in the US and $39,599 in Canada. Due to a very limited number of units available, you are encouraged to contact immediately an Indian Motorcycle Dealer. All model specifications after the jump.
