Features

Features

  • REMOTE-LOCKABLE HARD SADDLEBAGS: Your cargo is protected inside convenient, spacious hard saddlebags with weatherproof seals. You can even lock them remotely using a console-mounted button or via the bike’s key fob.
  • HERITAGE INSPIRED POWERPLANT: Designed from the ground up, the Thunder Stroke 111 is a powerful engine offering premium performance, as well as legendary features inspired by the Power Plus motor of the 1940s. Multi-directional finned valve covers. Downward firing exhaust. Large, parallel push-rod tubes. Organic, asymmetric fin styling. Right-hand drive. Right-hand cam cover. Classic 2/3 head-to-cylinder neck down.
  • OUTSTANDING STEERING GEOMETRY: The steering geometry of the Indian Chieftain was engineered to deliver light, responsive handling, whether ridden solo with no cargo or two-up with full saddlebags.
  • OPEN FRONT FENDER: The new open front fender exposes the new 19 in. contrast cut wheel and dual front brakes, giving the bike a more custom feel. The flared fender design also offers a subtle nod to Indian's "open" fender of the 1920s and 1930s.
  • 19 IN. CONTRAST CUT WHEEL: The new front wheel features a 10-spoke contrast-cut design that makes the wheel look even bigger than it already is. Paired with a matching 16 in. rear wheel, these new head-turners bring this bike more attention than ever.
  • ABS BRAKING: With ABS braking, you’ll ride with confidence, knowing you can brake under control in any situation.
  • POWER ADJUSTABLE WINSHIELD: With a push of a handlebar-mounted button, this windshield can quickly raise or lower electronically. Lower it to enjoy the cooling airflow. Or raise it to block out wind and rain.
  • 119 FT-LBS OF TORQUE: The Thunder Stroke 111 produces 119 ft.-lb. of torque with extraordinary power at low RPM, so you can accelerate hard with power to spare in every gear.
  • PREMIUM GENUINE LEATHER SEAT: This cushioned, two-up seat features premium grade genuine leather designed to withstand the elements and retain its natural beauty. The contrast stitching creates a sleeker, streamlined look.
  • 100 WATT PREMIUM AUDIO SYSTEM: The Chieftain Limited features an integrated audio system delivering premium-quality sound from the high-output fairing speakers. Smartphones and other audio sources can be connected via cable or Bluetooth.
  • CHROME HIGHWAY BAR: These chrome highway bars provide premium-quality shine. You can also accessorize them with stylish wraps or comfortable footrests.
  • THE INDIAN MOTORCYCLE RIDE COMMAND SYSTEM: Pinch. Swipe. Tap. All without removing your gloves. Through this industry-leading seven-inch display, you can get turn-by-turn directions. Quickly find points of interest. Play Bluetooth audio. Check vehicle information and status, plus a whole lot more. And thanks to split-screen technology, you can easily customize the display to focus on the details that matter to you most.
  • KEYLESS IGNITION: Never fumble for your key again. With the proximity fob in your pocket, just climb on, press the start button and ride away. Misplace your fob? Simply enter your personal security code and go.
  • CRUISE CONTROL: Automotive-quality cruise control is easy to set and adjust for smooth, relaxed cruising when the open road beckons.
  • INTERNALLY WIRED HANDLEBARS: This high-profile area features all-chrome hand controls. Plus, all of the wiring is routed inside the handlebars for a clean, premium-quality look.
  • CAST ALUMINUM FRAME: The Chieftain Limited’s cast aluminum frame is lightweight yet exceptionally strong, providing excellent low-speed handling. There’s no frame flex at speed in the corners, and you’ll experience confidence-inspiring stability on the highway, where it matters most.
