Since its initial release, the Indian Chieftain has been one of our favorite touring motorcycles on the market. Epitomizing what we love about an American tourer, the 111ci V-twin has a great sound and feel while putting out solid power throughout the entire rev range. The chassis holds stable through fast turns and while blasting down the highway, just like it does while maneuvering at low speeds. The suspension does a great job at eating the small bumps, while also holding you to the road and keeping you steady through the twisties. The steep rake drops into turns easily, making it surprisingly nimble in urban environments and fun to ride through some canyons.

Starting at $21,999 and jumping up to $25,999 for the Dark Horse and Limited models, there really isn’t a lot to complain about when it comes to Indian’s flagship touring model.
