2016 Indian Chief Vintage

A truly classic bagger with fringed leather saddlebags and protective windshield (both of which are quickly removed without tools), the 2016 Indian Chief Vintage captures the classic Indian look.

A big part of its visual appeal is the air-cooled Thunder Stroke 111 motor with downdraft exhausts and finned valve covers. With 29 degrees of rake, it has relaxed handling for long-distance touring, and a six-speed transmission to allow the motor to purr along. Standard features include cruise control, ABS, leather seats and bags, keyless ignition, and multi-function instrumentation on the 5.5-gallon fuel tank.
