Indian Celebrates The Chief’s 100th Birthday With A New 3-Bike Moto Lineup

Feb 10, 2021

Category: Rides

Indian first introduced the Chief in 1921 as a more powerful alternative to the sporty, quick-handling Scout. With its comfortable ride quality and strikingly good looks, it took no time before it became a mainstay in the American motorcycle manufacturer’s lineup.

In celebration of the Chief’s 100th birthday, Indian has announced a trio of new bikes that pair the timeless tradition of their namesake with some good ole’ 21st-century innovation. For instance, the base Chief was designed to be a modern reinterpretation of the original, with low-slung drag bars, minimal accessories, and some analog instrumentation. And when it comes to the Bobber, Indian has looked back to the blue-collar bikes of the post-war era, giving it wire wheels wrapped and a chopped solo seat. Rounded out by the Super Chief — a bagged tourer complete with cruiser bars and front windscreen — the range makes for a fitting anniversary homage. Each model is available in two different trim levels — standard or Dark Horse/Limited — with the former being powered by a Thunderstroke 111 engine and the latter using a Thunderstroke 116. What’s more, each Dark Horse/Limited bike comes with ABS and Indian’s RIDE COMMAND system, an industry-first Bluetooth-enabled infotainment display. You can buy the Chief now, starting at $14,499.
