American classic motorcycle brand Indian Motorcycle is all set to bring an entire new line-up of Chief in India. The Chief line-up is slated to debut in India in the second quarter of CY2021, which means between April to June this year.

The new Indian Chief, Indian Chief Bobber and Indian Super Chief will offer three unique takes on the classic American V-twin, each appealing to a slightly different rider.

Speaking about the new line-up, Lalit Sharma, Country Manager, Polaris India said, “What could be the best way to celebrate the 100 iconic years of the Indian Chief than to introduce our iconic new line-up of Chief in India? We are looking forward to bringing in the new line-up of motorcycle for Indian bike lovers. We are very positive that the new line-up will be a huge success for our Indian range of motorcycles.”

The new Indian Chief models are based on a classic steel welded tube frame and powered by Indian Motorcycle’s powerful Thunderstroke motor. The line-up features a four-gallon fuel tank, bobbed rear fender, dual outboard preload-adjustable rear shocks, dual exhaust, LED lighting, keyless ignition, and Pirelli Night Dragon tyres. Along with cruise control, Chief riders can adjust throttle response by selecting one of three ride modes: sport, standard or tour.

The bikes feature a short wheelbase of 64-inches, a low seat height of 26-inches and a wet weight as low as 670 pounds. The company says, “the Chief’s conventional 46mm front forks with 5.2-inches of travel, 28.5-degree lean angle, and comfortable ergonomics, create a capable machine for even the most technical of ride routes.

 

Chief riders will have access to over 80 accessories, including parts specifically designed for Chief models, as well as several existing pieces available for Scout and Thunderstroke models. Indian Motorcycle’s accessory line has been designed to enhance performance, personalize style and add rider comfort.
