The Chief platform consists of a low-slung steel welded tube frame with a wheelbase of 1626mm and seat height of 662, weighing in at 304 kilograms (wet) for the base Chief Dark Horse.

Speaking of, the entry-level Chief Dark Horse is distinguished by its ‘drag’ handlebars, 19-inch cast wheels, mid-mounted controls and solo bucket seat.

Meanwhile, the Chief Bobber Dark Horse instead features mini-ape handlebars and forward controls, 16-inch wire-spoked wheels, fork and shock covers, and a larger headlight setup.

Stepping up to the Super Chief Limited provides customers with a quick-release windscreen, black leather saddlebags, a touring seat and passenger pad, floorboards and ‘traditional’ cruiser handlebars.

The Super Chief Limited is also distinguished by a chrome exhaust system.

Powering the Indian Chief range is the American brand’s Thunderstroke 116 motor, an 1890cc V-twin that delivers 162Nm from 3200rpm.
