1- Chieftain Limited.
Indian’s new Chieftain Limited represents a bold evolution of the Chieftain line and paves the way for even more legendary rides. Indian Motorcycle’s designers have added just the right amount of style to give the Chieftain a sleeker look than ever before.
“Our goal was to evolve the award-winning Chieftain platform with new models that significantly elevate the bike’s style, while still staying true to the signature design qualities that Indian Motorcycle is known for,” said Reid Wilson, Director of Marketing for Indian Motorcycle. “There’s no doubt the Chieftain Limited has a commanding presence and signature details that make it 100 per cent Indian.”
The main visual changes of the Chieftain Limited compared to a Chieftain include a sawn-off front fender and a new ten-spoke 19″ front wheel and 16″ rear wheel, which quickens up the handling. The front wheel has dual 300mm floating rotors with four piston calipers and an Indian logo embossed on it. There’s also a color-matched headlight bezel and a more streamlined leather saddle to complete the sleeker look.
Along with the Ride Command seven-inch infotainment system and the powerful Thunder Stroke 111 engine, the Chieftain Limited has a keyless ignition, anti-lock brakes (ABS), a 100-watt audio system, chrome front highway bar, a power adjustable windshield, remote locking hard saddlebags and just enough chrome to highlight all that this bike has to offer.
Indian Motorcycle’s Thunder Stroke 111 V-Twin engine serves up a tasty 135Nm of torque so you can accelerate hard in every gear and have power to spare.
Pinch. Swipe. Tap. All without removing your gloves. Offering the industry’s largest, fastest, and most customizable infotainment system, the seven-inch Ride Command system allows you to get turn-by-turn directions, quickly navigate top points of interest, play Bluetooth audio, check vehicle information and status, plus a whole lot more via its easy to use interface. And thanks to split- screen technology, you can easily customize three rider screens to display the information that matters to you most.
Premium Audio. Two speakers located in the fairing deliver 100-watts of power at crystal clear quality. Use Ride Command to switch between the AM/FM stereo, Bluetooth or USB input, giving three different ways to listen to music as your ride.
Keyless Ignition. Put the Chieftain Limited key fob in your pocket then just climb on the bike, push the ignition button and ride. If you misplace or lose your fob, use can enter an individual security code pre-programmed into the ignition to start it up.
Stopping Power With Style. The front wheel is adorned with powerful, dual 300mm front rotors with 4-piston calipers. For a custom touch, the caliper housings feature the Indian Motorcycle script logo. The rear wheel features a single 300mm floating rotor with 2-piston caliper to ensure that you can come to a halt quickly. An advanced anti-lock brake system (ABS) lets you ride with confidence and helps you stop with greater control.
Touring Amenities. With a commanding power-windscreen and remote lockable hard saddlebags you’re ready to rack up the miles in style and comfort. A tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and cruise control enhances your ride during highway cruising.
Exhaust. The Thunder Stroke 111 engine produces a rich, deep exhaust rumble from the exhaust. Which was acoustically engineered to eliminate high-pitched sounds, so what you really hear is Indian Motorcycle thunder.
2- Chieftain Elite.
As well as the Chieftain Limited, there is also a Chieftain Elite (a even more exclusive version with a special paint finish) Indian Motorcycle’s designers have reimagined what a top-of-the-line Chieftain should look like and have added custom paint and other design features to create a more premium look than ever before.
Only 350 of these will be sold globally. “With Chieftain Elite we wanted to design the most-premium, feature-packed Chieftain that we could possibly imagine,” said Reid Wilson, Director of Marketing for Indian Motorcycle. “In the end, I think the bike exceeded even our own high expectations. It’s an absolute show stopper.”
For those who demand the best of the best, the Chieftain Elite steps up to the plate as a bike that’s as close to custom as possible. The Chieftain Elite features a custom Fireglow Red Candy with Marble Accents paint scheme completed entirely by hand by Indian Motorcycle’s paint facility located in Spearfish, South Dakota. It takes a small, specialized team over 25 hours to hand paint each bike and no two Chieftain Elites look exactly the same.
The Chieftain Elite has a cutback front fender that shows off the new ten-spoke 19″ front wheel beautifully. The headlight bezel has been color matched to the fairing and the leather saddle is more streamline than the standard model and has contrast stitching.
The Chieftain Elite also comes with a wealth of premium amenities:
• Instead of a standard headlight, it has a Pathfinder LED headlight and driving lights.
• There’s a flared power windshield
• Rider and passenger floorboards are made from billet aluminium
• It has 200-watt sound system (two speakers in the fairing and two in the saddlebags)
It also has the industry leading Ride Command seven-inch infotainment system and anti-lock brakes (ABS), a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), keyless ignition, a power adjustable windshield and just enough chrome to tastefully highlight all the attitude this ultra-exclusive bike has to offer.
