2016 Indian Chieftain Preview

2016 Indian Chieftain in Silver and Black with accessories

The 2016 Indian Chieftain is as classy and timeless as it is functional and comfortable. This touring bike seems to check all of the boxes on our list, and the new options excite us that much more.Followers need not apply. Built to go your own way, this hard-bagger rides a lane apart. A Thunder Stroke 111 engine and a hard fairing packed with powerwindshield, Bluetooth stereo and cruise control. That’s the intersection of capability and versatility. Throw in remote locking saddlebags and the Chieftain becomes not-so-subtle proof that your way or the highway can be the same thing. Featuring a quality stereo that includes AM / FM / weather band, and includes media player and Pandora compatibility, the Chieftain is as entertaining to ride as it is to listen to.

The Chieftain has proven to be an inspiring custom platform for builders as well. With factory accessories such as the saddlebag lid speakers, passenger floorboards, low windscreens and a removable passenger pad, the Chieftain is the most flexible and bold motorcycle in the line-up. After-market companies have seen the potential in this model and customs continue to appear and further shatter industry expectations.
