‘as we continue to evolve the indian motorcycle brand, we want to expand our lineup with more aggressive style options, while still maintaining the availability of our more classic style options,’ says reid wilson, senior director for indian motorcycle. ‘what’s most important to us is developing motorcycles that meet a wide variety of customer style preferences, and chieftain’s new look does just that.’

at first sight, the new chieftain showcases a restyled fairing and saddlebags with shaper lines and harder edges that give the bike a commanding presence and aerodynamic look. a trimmed and slimmed fairing, paired with new fork guards, delivers a streamlined front-end package that’s indicative of the bike’s performance capabilities. its new saddlebags with color-matched fender closeouts provide the custom-inspired look whilst the rouge gunfighter seat gives the bike a sleek profile to match the chieftain’s superior handling and comfort.

  • Need a styled bike with the ape hangers and a chopper look

    Carl Saunders says:
  • The rear end of the bike is surely starting to look like a harley. Im sure the front will get there as well

    Fernando says:
  • Stylized and anachronistic Hard to believe the emphasis is still on gasoline engines and heavy bikes. Unfortunate picture in front of what appears to be a bar strip.
