2017 Indian ChieftainIndian Motorcycle

Your way or the highway can be the same thing. Cruise around town. Roar down the freeway with music blasting. Take a long trip across state lines. Then put down the side stand, take a step back and look at one of the most striking motorcycles ever built.

With its broad, sculpted shoulders, muscular lines and booming sound, the 2017 Indian Chieftain always rolls at the front of the crowd. Up front, there’s a fairing packed with driving lights, a power windshield, the new Indian Motorcycle Touchscreen Infotainment System, 100- watt premium audio system with Bluetooth connectivity and smartphone compatible input, and cruise control. Out back, you’ll find remote locking saddlebags. Add in the Thunder Stroke 111 engine, standard highway bars, tire pressure monitoring, ABS and a host of other rider-friendly amenities, and it’s easy to see why the Chieftain always leads the charge. To further stand out from the crowd, the 2017 Chieftain features a new Havasu Red Pearl over Thunder Black paint option.

A machine that already stands apart is amplified with factory accessories such as the saddlebag lid speakers, passenger floorboards, low windscreens and a removable passenger pad, plus a growing number of aftermarket options, the Chieftain has proven to be an inspiring custom platform for builders as well.
