Indian Launches Chieftain Limited And Chieftain Elite

2017 Indian Chieftain Elite
The new 2017 Chieftain Elite is a masterpiece for those that want an ultra-exclusive Indian motorcycle.

The simultaneous release of the two Chieftain models offers Indian aficionados a choice of the finest materials and design with two of their best bikes yet.

The Indian Chieftain Limited boasts its sleekest look yet with a sawn-off front fender, colour matched headlight bezel and a streamlined leather saddle.

The 19” front wheel features ten spokes, dual 300mm floating rotors, four piston callipers and a nice finer touch with an embossed logo.

Together with the 16” rear wheel this provides improved handling.

Other highlights include a 100W audio system, chrome front highway bar and hard saddlebags with remote locking.

The 2017 Indian Chieftain Limited has a sleeker look than ever before.

But for the more discerning rider there is a more premium option in the top of the line Indian Chieftain Elite.

Each bike is hand painted by a special team over 25 hours in custom red paint with marble accents for a individual look.

Like the Limited, the Elite features a colour matched headlight bezel, chrome highlights, a ten spoke 19” front wheel and a streamlined leather saddle but this time with contrast stitching.

Also in common is a 7” infotainment system, keyless ignition, ABS, power adjustable windshield and the Thunder Stroke 111 V-Twin engine (135Nm).

Preserving it’s unique status the Elite is limited to only 350 units worldwide and Australian numbers are yet to be determined.

Indian Motorcycle National Manager Peter Harvey says, the Indian Chieftain Elite will be a show stopper.

“We wanted to design the most premium, feature-packed Chieftain one could possibly imagine and we’ve even exceeded our own expectations.”
