2016 Indian Chief Vintage Preview

The 2016 Indian Chief Vintage brings you the full-performance Thunder Stroke 111 and the comfort of a modern Indian Motorcycle in a timeless, classic cruiser.

Ride far enough and you’ll go back in time. The Chief Vintage combines the timeless sense of yesteryear with the modern capabilities today’s riders demand. The Chief Vintage harkens back to a simpler time and is ready for a pure touring experience, though with stylish and modern touches such as authentic leather fringe, quickly removable Desert Tan saddlebags and passenger seat, keyless ignition and a quick-release windshield— providing nostalgic riders with the traditional Indian style they won’t find anywhere else. Fire up the Thunder Stroke 111 engine, and the Chief Vintage is ready for a run around town or across the country.

Additional touring accessories such as luggage racks incorporating a passenger backrest, tip-over bar covers, heated grips, tool roll and tank pouch all help the rider come up with great excuses to go riding.
