Instantly recognizable...

The best of all worlds: Timeless, authentic style, versatile features and modern technology for a smooth-handling, high-performance ride.

2016 Indian® Chief® Classic, Indian® Chief® Vintage and Indian® Chieftain®

For 2016, Indian Motorcycle returns with its award-winning lineup of Indian Chief models delivering the power, handling, unmatched engineering and stunning beauty of the industry's hottest heavyweight cruisers. Powered by the proven Thunder Stroke 111 engine and covered in premium chrome, the Indian Chief family delivers the impeccable styling and sophisticated performance of the Chief Classic; the classic looks, beautiful fringed leather saddle bags and paint schemes of the Chief Vintage, and the cruising comfort and exceptional handling of the Indian Chieftain hard bagger. Continuing its tradition of stunning colors and head-turning two-tone paint palettes, the 2016 Indian Chief lineup, starting at $17,699, offers gorgeous new color options that include:

- Indian Chief Classic: Pearl White
- Indian Chief Vintage: Star Silver & Thunder Black
- Indian Chieftain: Silver Smoke, Indian Motorcycle Red & Ivory Cream, Star Silver & Thunder Black

2016 Chief Dark Horse | Chief Classic | Chief Vintage | Chieftain

For 2016, Indian Motorcycle continues to sell its award-winning Indian Chief models, delivering the power, handling, unmatched engineering and stunning beauty of the industry's hottest heavyweight cruisers and baggers.

The Indian Chief family has impeccable styling and sophisticated performance. The proven Thunder Stroke 111 engine powers them all (an air-cooled version is on the Chief Dark Horse, Classic and Vintage), but each model has its own character and style.

Riders can opt for the Chief Classic (cruiser) with its classic looks, much cleaner now following some re-work carried out for 2016: solo vinyl seat, black switches, single headlight and cast aluminium wheels. It now also only comes in one colour; Pearl White.

Next there's the Chief Vintage (bagger) with its beautiful fringed leather saddlebags and seats, and quick-release windshield (all as standard) making this the option for those who plan to ride on extended road trips. Four colours are available with one of these being new for 2016.

The Chieftain (bagger) has a large fairing with a power-adjustable windscreen (to offer superb cruising comfort), genuine leather seats and hard saddlebags with remote central-locking. It's available in four colours in 2016 with two of these new.

Finally there's the Chief Dark Horse. This is the most striking cruiser on the market. It is matte black from end-to-end with only a few flashes of chrome (accessories are available to fully blacken it out). This bike makes a statement even before you fire it up. It looks intimidating, but its low seat height and balance makes it very easy to swing a leg over and ride, plus it's the best entry point to ride a Thunder Stroke 111 powered Indian Motorcycle. Propelled by 139Nm of torque and the same chassis and suspension from the award-winning Chief Classic, the Chief Dark Horse rolls with ABS, a remote key fob for keyless ignition and electronic cruise control.

The colour options for all of the Chief models this year are:

Chief Classic
Pearl White - NEW
Chief Vintage
Star Silver and Thunder Black - NEW
Thunder Black
Indian Motorcycle Red
Willow Green and Ivory Cream
Chieftain
Silver Smoke - NEW
Star Silver and Thunder Black - NEW

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.

INDIAN MOTORCYCLE® BADGING
The logos & badging are powerful, stylish & iconic. For 115 years, Indian Motorcycle branding has stood for the ultimate in power, performance & style. Complementing the branding is the legendary Warbonnet, showing the way from its perch on the front fender.
