Indian Motorcycle’s 2019 Chieftain has a redesigned fairing and saddlebags, as well as three all-new ride modes. The chassis and engine have remained essentially the same, but new throttle mapping changes up the character of the ride a bit. While many riders will recognize some styling cues that are familiar from Harley-Davidson’s Street Glide, the new design is already working to win over fans who have not previously considered purchasing an Indian.
Key components that differentiate this model from the base model are its front crash bar, installed navigation system, remote locking hard bags, and tire pressure monitoring. The Chieftain Limited hits the market at $25,999 for Thunder Black Pearl and $26,749 for the Ruby Metallic or Dark Walnut options.
