About Chief Vintage

The Chief Vintage is an iconic soft bagger type of motorcycle from Indian Motorcycles. It gets stylish, elegant fenders which have been seen since 1940 on all Indian Motorcycles along with the traditional big ‘Indian’ badging on the fuel tank. It gets keyless entry as a safety feature. The bike has chrome all across its body even around the headlamp unit.

The front fender gets the iconic ‘War Bonnet’ and the same covers its brake callipers. The Chief Classic instrumentation combines modern technology and traditional style. The tank-mounted console has a large, easy-to-read analog speedometer as well as a digital display screen that provides a wealth of valuable ride and fuel data. It gets genuine leather saddlebags for long distance runs and a windshield that can be removed using the quick release function, just in case you like to feel the breeze.

The Indian Chief Vintage is powered by a new Thunder Stroke 111 engine that churns out 161Nm of peak torque. The bike has six-speed transmissions fed by electronic fuel injection and has ABS and hidden rear suspension. This iconic motorcycle is priced at USD20,999 (Rs 12.96 lakh) in US .This bike will be launched in India on January 22, 2014 and is expected to be priced between Rs 23 lakh – Rs 25 lakh (ex-showroom). It will come to India through completely-built-up (CBU) route.

    • Gets top-quality components 
    • Massive road presence

BikeWale's Take

The Chief Vintage is part of Indian Motorcycle’s line-up of luxury touring motorcycles. It offers plush features, top-quality components and a comfortable riding position to match. On the downside, its massive size could make it difficult to ride in the city. The Chief Vintage could also do with a wider service network.
