2015 Indian Chief Models

During 2014 Vintage Motorcycle Days, the presenting sponsor Indian Motorcycle announced some changes for the 2015 Chief lineup.

Indian says that two-tone paint schemes will be offered across the 2015 Chief lineup, which includes the Chief Classic, the Chief Vintage and the Chieftain – Indian’s first motorcycle to feature a hard fairing. These two-tone schemes have a starting price of $19,799 (Chief Classic).

“Two-tone paint schemes are among the most iconic elements of vintage Indian motorcycles dating back about 80 years, giving the bikes a look and feel that is instantly recognizable and beloved by motorcycle fans,” said Steve Menneto, VP of Indian Motorcycle.

“It is exciting to reintroduce two-tone paint for our 2015 Indian Chief models. These paint schemes pay tribute to Indian bikes of the past but come coupled with the exceptional technology and power that the 2015 Chief lineup offers. They are simply stunning, and the quality and craftsmanship of the paint jobs is exceptional. We’re excited to share these beautiful bikes now, and will share more news with our fans on August 2nd.”

The Polaris-owned Indian unveiled the machines at Vintage Motorcycle Days this past weekend, and will release additional details, including features and MSRPs, on August 2 at the 74th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally*.

All three 2015 Chief models will also be available for demo rides during Sturgis (August 2-9), and will hit showroom floors in the fall.
