2015 Indian Chief Classic Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Standard Features

THUNDER STROKE® 111
The Thunder Stroke® 111 engine delivers an incredible 119 ft-lbs of torque and features styling that pays tribute to legendary Indian Motorcycle® engines of the past.

KEYLESS IGNITION
Enjoy keyless starting that’s secure and convenient. With the Indian® Chief® Classic key fob in your pocket, climb on the bike, push a button and ride. If you misplace the fob, use the individual security code that you pre-programmed into the ignition.

ABS & CRUISE CONTROL
This advanced, automotive-quality braking lets you ride with confidence and helps you stop under control. Easy to set and adjust, the cruise control enhances your enjoyment during highway cruising.

EXTENSIVE CHROME
Virtually every surface that could be chromed has been chromed. From end to end, the beautiful, bright chrome finish elevates the iconic style of the Indian® Chief® Classic.

TRUE DUAL EXHAUST
The engine produces a rich exhaust note from the true dual exhaust. The exhaust was acoustically engineered to eliminate high-pitched sounds, so what you really hear is Indian Motorcycle® thunder.

 

Classic Iconic Features

INDIAN MOTORCYCLE® BADGING
One of the classic elements of an Indian Motorcycle® is the vintage badging. Ever since the Indian® script logo was first created in 1910, this feature has made the Indian Motorcycle® badging a hallmark of this historic brand.

WAR BONNET
Lighting the way as it has done since 1947 is the iconic War Bonnet. Mounted proudly atop the front fender in a chrome frame, this light makes it clear, “This is a genuine Indian Motorcycle

VALENCED FENDERS
Stylish, elegant and functional, the iconic valenced fenders, standard since 1940, enhance the flowing styling lines of every Indian Motorcycle®. They also provide protection, effectively blocking road spray and gravel kicked up by the tires.

LACED WHEELS
The Indian® Chief® Classic rolls on bright, high quality laced wheels. Forty stainless steel spokes make up the wheels, which evoke iconic, timeless Indian Motorcycle® style.

CENTER CONSOLE
Chief® Classic instrumentation combines modern technology and traditional style. The tank-mounted console has a large, easy-to-read analog speedometer as well as a digital display screen that provides a wealth of valuable ride and fuel data.

BRAKE CALIPER COVERS
Every Indian® Chief® Classic is equipped with outstanding brakes, and in keeping with our traditional styling, we choose to cover the calipers. The result is a clean, stylish, beautifully finished sheet metal – iconic Indian Motorcycle® valanced fenders.

 

Comfort with Style

Performance
Boost the performance of your Indian® Motorcycle®, create more legroom on the left side of the engine, and enhance the style of the Thunder Stroke® 111 V-Twin. The “Big Sucker” intake lets the engine “inhale” more freely for a slight performance gain, and it enhances throttle response.

Exhaust
Add the Stage 1 Slip-On Exhaust and enjoy a rich, throaty exhaust note that provides the perfect soundtrack for the open road. This exhaust system allows the Thunder Stroke™ 111 motorcycle engine to breath more freely and unleash additional power and crisp throttle response. Add extra style to your exhaust with a set of Fishtail Exhaust Tips

QUICK RELEASE WINDSHIELD
Quick Release Technology makes it easy for an Indian Motorcycle® rider to add the comfort and protection of this Low Windshield to an Indian® Chief® Cruiser motorcycle in seconds – without tools.

PINNACLE COVER COLLECTION
Enhance the custom treatment of your Indian Motorcycle® by adding the Pinnacle Cover Collection to your bike. Each Horn Cover, cam cover and primary cover features branding and graphic and gives the motorcycle a clean, finished custom look.

Pinnacle Heel Shifter
The adjustable Chrome Heel Shifter adds extra style to your Indian® Motorcycle®, and it accommodates riders who prefer heel shifting.
