Indian unveils Chieftain Elite

Indian is bringing the Chieftain Elite back.

As the name suggests, this machine is built on the Chieftain platform, but it’s even more expensive than the base model, adding about $12k for a $37,999 MSRP in Canada.

For that money, you get a LED headlight and driving lights, 200-watt sound system, leather seats, billet driver and passenger floorboards, updated hand controls, Indian’s Ride Command infotainment system (with 7-inch screen), keyless ignition, cruise control, and so on. The bike is powered by the Thunderstroke 111 V-twin, and comes with a hand-painted finish, which is the highlight of this model. That flashy paint means the bike is carefully assembled by hand, as well.
