Features

Standard Features

  • THUNDER STROKE® 111: The Thunder Stroke® 111 V-Twin is the powerful heart & soul, delivering 119 ft-lbs of torque, tremendous acceleration & an exhaust note that is music to a real rider’s ears.
  • ABS & CRUISE CONTROL: The Indian Chief Classic has advanced features to optimize the ride experience. With automotive-quality ABS braking, you ride with confidence that you’ll brake under control in all situations. The cruise control is easy to set & adjust so you enjoy smooth, relaxed cruising.
  • PUSH-BUTTON ADJUSTABLE WINDSHIELD: The windshield atop the stylish, protective fairing can be raised or lowered electronically with the push of a handlebar-mounted button. A rider can lower the windshield to enjoy cooling airflow or raise it to block wind & rain.
  • KEYLESS IGNITION: Never fumble with a key again. With the key fob in your pocket, just climb on, start it up & ride. Walk away with confidence, too. The engine will only start & run when the fob is in close proximity to the bike. Misplace the fob? Just enter your personal security code and ride on.
  • UNIQUE STEERING GEOMETRY: The Indian® Chieftain® steering geometry is engineered to deliver light, responsive handing whether this faired bike is being ridden solo with no cargo, or 2-up with full saddlebags. It delivers handling more like a sport bike than a heavyweight bagger.
  • HIGH-OUTPUT AUDIO: The fairing features an integrated audio system that delivers premium-quality sound from dual high-output speakers. An audio source such as a smart phone can be connected by cable or through Bluetooth® connectivity.
  • HARD SADDLEBAGS: Riders’ cargo is protected in the convenient, spacious hard saddlebags that have lockable lids with weatherproof seals. The lids can be locked electronically using a console-mounted button – or the bike’s key fob.
