2014 Indian Chief Classic Review

2014 Indian Chief Classic

All you need. All you want. The 2014 Indian® Chief® Classic is everything an Indian Motorcycle® was and ever should be. It’s a sculpted, powerful cruiser, built with the purest necessities of Indian style, wrapped around the innovation of tomorrow...

The new Indian Chief Classic is a pure, powerful cruiser forged from key heritage design elements yet wrapped in advanced design, engineering and technology. It features iconic styling like valanced fenders, rich genuine leather saddle, classic tank-mounted instrumentation, tear-drop fuel tank design, and sculpted and lighted front fender war bonnet. The 2014 Indian Chief Classic comes standard with a host of premium features including endless chrome, keyless ignition, ABS, cruise control, throttle-by-wire, true dual exhaust, high quality chrome laced spoke wheels, brake caliper covers, cast aluminum frame with integrated air intake, and much more.

The Indian Chief Classic, like all 2014 Indian Chief models, is powered by the all-new, clean sheet design Thunder Stroke™ 111 engine. Offering 111 cubic inches of pavement pounding power and 119 ft-lbs of torque, this class-leading power plant draws powerful design cues from heritage Indian Motorcycle engines merged with brilliant engineering and advanced technologies. The Thunder Stroke 111 is a 49-degree, air-cooled V-twin with 6-speed overdrive transmission, and features unmatched premium exterior finishes and touches. It offers owners the peace-of-mind that comes from over two million miles of on-road and test-lab verification and Polaris Industries’ 60 years of engineering prowess.

The Indian Chief Classic features iconic Indian Motorcycle elements: Valanced fenders, rich genuine leather, instrumentation atop the tear-drop fuel tank, and the lit War Bonnet guiding the way from the front fender. It also has value-added features usually found only on big-ticket customs. Standard – yet special – features on the Indian Chief Classic include extensive chrome, keyless ignition, ABS, cruise control, throttle by wire, and an innovative cast aluminum frame with integrated air intake.

Powering this new generation of Indian Motorcycles is the all-new Thunder Stroke™ 111. This smooth, powerful and efficient new engine combines both style and power, displaying the same finning, and parallel pushrod tubes as seen on earlier Chiefs of the 1940s.

Personalize your Indian Chief Classic with Genuine Indian Motorcycle Parts & Accessories and head out.

This is the bike for riders who know exactly what they want, and will settle for nothing less.
