As its name promises, the Chief Vintage looks, well, vintage. While featuring the same fully valanced fenders, large headlight nacelle, and fat, twin-cap 5.5-gallon fuel tank of certain other Indians, the Chief Vintage is decked out in either black or a two-tone paint scheme (your choice of green and ivory, blue and white, or silver and black), 16-inch whitewall tires, a studded leather dual seat, and detachable soft-sided saddlebags (in tan or black). A tall windshield adds protection during extended highway stints.
Indian says the Chief Vintage “is a nod to simpler times” and high customer approval for its styling validates the point. Thankfully though, computer-aided design and manufacturing, electronic fuel injection for the Thunder Stroke 111 V-twin, a six-speed gearbox, a modern cartridge-style fork, and triple disc brakes with ABS ensure a more contemporary ride. Adding comfort are available heated grips, an available backrest for the pilot, and available heated front and rear seats.
