Indian 1811 CHIEFTAIN Classic 2019

The Chieftain Classic is the only one in the family to keep the design of the first version, with its American train facies. A style that suits him particularly well, a true expression of his prerogatives.
2019 is a real technological boost for the big Indian engine. He knew he was superb carure, he now shows several faces. Three driving modes allow this neo-vintage bagger to compose the road in tones of ‘Tour’, ‘Standard’ or ‘Sport’. A rear cylinder deactivation function is part of the pack, limiting the heating of this part of the engine when the bike is stationary.
The on-board sound system also receives optimization with redistributed speakers, more sophisticated sound management and a process adaptive to external conditions. Thus, even if it visually presents a generation of delay at the design level, its level of performance is equal to the rest of the band. Above all, it offers something important, priority, absolute: choice. Between one style and the other.

Evolution has become a component of Indian; this one benefits from it today, as yesterday. It was technologically affirmed in 2017 with the arrival of a high-tech on-board console. To control navigation, audio, telephone functions and many options (see description here), ‘Ride Command’ is emerging and allows Indian to offer one of the best on-board systems in motorcycle production. Its large 7-inch touch screen offers a host of functions and several display modes. What to consider even more serenely the road with this beautiful American vessel.

Crossing the United States is a mixture of dream and legend, an initiation rite for some, an ultimate adventure for others. You still have to do it with the appropriate machine, one that perspires the road from one end of the chassis to the other. For its rebirth under the bosom of Polaris, Indian has equipped itself with a machine capable of shading the tenors of the genre. A majestic machine, where personality and mechanics inspire respect, curiosity and paroxysmal presence: the Chieftain.

The first tourer in Indian history, the 1800 Chieftain catches the eye like the miles. Its large and muffled fork crown is not yet another copy of the "harley pig nose" but has its own identity. Another nod to the past with a marked reference to the Streamliner style of trains from the end of the 1930s. Extensive protection, a large illuminated porthole accompanied by a pair of acolytes, large LED indicators; what a headdress! In addition, the windshield is electrically adjustable, with a travel of 12 centimeters. A lot of chrome on top and here you are seduced.
Not yet ? However, the Indian 111 ci Chieftain has something to coax you. Its rigid suitcases are electrically closed and mounted on quick release anchors. The saddle is in leather, the start is done without a key, the shock absorber benefits from a pneumatic adjustment, and the equipment continues with attention worthy of the best road: ABS, cruise control, quality audio system coupled with a Bluetooth connection, tire pressure indicator, 12V socket, etc….
The Chieftain has completely changed its dashboard. Less elegant but much more high-tech, the ‘Ride Command’ may surprise regulars; and satisfy technology lovers.

New and passionately Indian, the Chieftain is based on the same chassis-engine combination as the Chief Classic and Vintage. Either a die-cast aluminum frame with integrated air box, braking with 300 mm discs and 4-piston front calipers (2 at the rear), a 46 mm fork and a pneumatic mono-shock absorber.
True heart of beef, the Chief’s engine is called "modestly" Thunder Stroke 111. Superb, metallic ode mixing modernism and nostalgia, this 1811 cc twin grows with 15.3 mkg of muscle and rind. More than an engine, this is one of the elements that makes you fall for an Indian. Like, more anecdotally, the Native American headdress on the mudguard, the ample skirts on the wheels, or this large Indian head logo running on each side of the tank.

An exceptional bagger or a Tourer with prestigious accents, the Indian Chieftain almost hesitates between the two and its price confirms its premium orientation. At almost 30,000 euros, it is significantly more expensive than a competing Harley, much more than the neighbor Victory, and much more than some Japanese productions. But the Indian gives off something, a thrill that is hers alone. An even more accomplished version, with a majestic top-case-armchair set and additional equipment, is available to bring borders closer: the Roadmaster.
