Indian Chieftain

Indian Chieftain
The 2014 Indian Chieftain is in touch with its past, but far ahead of its time. It's the first Indian Motorcycle ever with a hard fairing, hard saddlebags and unprecedented new comfort and convenience features. The large, wide seats ensure a comfortable ride at any distance for rider and passenger / pillion. The wide, reclined handlebars and lower saddle position, along with adjustable windscreen and standard cruise control, make this any extremely easy bike to handle around the city or on a cross country ride.

A Street Glide with Class - My New Favorite Bike!

Friend: "Is that a Harley?"
Me: "No, it's the new Indian Chieftain!"
Friend: "Oh wow, even better!"

This bike was absolutely stunning, looks great in pictures and even better in person! Everyone who saw it was completely blown away. I definitely converted a few Harley lovers over to the Indian side.

Great comfort. Bluetooth integration allowed me to play music off of my phone. Power adjustable windshield. Lots of torque, lots of power no matter what gear. Very nimble, easy to toss around side to side.

Can't ignore this bike

When I picked up the 2015 Indian Chieftain in LA it had 202 miles on it. After putting 1500 miles on it myself on just about every type of road any bike would see in its normal lifetime, from the city traffic in LA and SanFrancisco to the tightly wound Canyon roads in Santa Barbara to sandy beach roads in Big Sur and all the highway miles in between, the Indian and rider fared well.

The first thing you notice about the Indian walking up to it is its style. It's a beautifully put together machine, fit and finish are second to none. The black paint looked deep and the chrome finishes are craftsman-like. And that 111 cubic inch power plant is a work of art.

The bike is very comfortable when you first mount it, the seat is low and the bar position puts you in a comfort zone, but it begins to feel small after an hour in the saddle. I began to look for ways to reposition my feet and stretch my legs but the large floor boards offer only a few inches of movement forward or back for your feet. The controls on the grips are smartly placed and easily accessible. On the left side you have the turn signal switch, horn, stereo controls and the adjustable windscreen control and not once did I press the wrong switch. The right thumb controls the starter button and the cruise control which worked amazingly well. The information center in the fairing dash gives you information like miles to empty, tire pressure monitor, speed and direction, stereo and Bluetooth functions. The LED screen was easy to see at night or in direct sunlight, but most of the time I found it difficult to read.

Forward controls and highway pegs are the second thing I would add if I owned this bike, but before I did that I would replace the seat if there is a replacement for it, and add a backrest. The seat is too narrow, too shallow, too short and too hard for the long haul, and offers no back support. I had to strap my back pack to the pillion and lean back against it to get some relief in
