2015 Indian® Chief® Classic (starting MSRP: $18,999)
The new Indian® Chief® Classic is a pure, powerful cruiser forged from key heritage design elements yet wrapped in advanced design, engineering and technology. It features iconic styling like valanced fenders, rich genuine leather saddle, classic tank-mounted instrumentation, tear-drop fuel tank design, and sculpted and lighted front fender war bonnet. The Indian® Chief® Classic comes standard with a host of premium features including endless chrome, keyless ignition, ABS, cruise control, throttle-by-wire, true dual exhaust, high quality chrome laced spoke wheels, brake caliper covers, cast aluminum frame with integrated air intake, and much more.

2015 Indian® Chief® Vintage (starting MSRP: $20,999)
The new Indian® Chief® Vintage is a soft bagger that takes iconic Indian Motorcycle® styling to a whole new level with handcrafted detail and a signature heritage aesthetic. The Indian® Chief® Vintage offers top-quality quick-release soft-sided leather bags, leather fringe, chrome fender tips, vintage chrome badging on the front fender and a quick-release windshield for easy installation or removal. It includes the same premium standard features as the Indian® Chief® Classic, and sports the same iconic design elements like valanced fenders, laced wheels, whitewall tires, tank-mounted instrument cluster and extensive chrome finishes throughout. It is also powered by the new Thunder Stroke® 111 engine.

2015 Indian® Chieftain™ (starting MSRP: $22,999)
The first Indian Motorcycle® of its kind, the all new Indian® Chieftain™ maintains the legendary Indian® Chief® styling, while taking this progressive machine to new heights with advanced features and premium comfort. Unlike any Indian Motorcycle® ever made, the Chieftain™ features a fairing with integrated driving lights, and its power windshield is an industry-first for a fork-mounted fairing. Standard features include hard saddlebags featuring remote locks and quick-release anchors, a high-output audio system featuring integrated Bluetooth® smartphone connectivity, and a tire pressure monitoring system.

2016 Indian® Chief® Dark Horse® (starting MSRP $16,999)
The Indian® Chief® Dark Horse® is the gritty brother of the Indian® Chief® Classic. Painted entirely in Thunder Black Smoke Paint, these bold and iconic cruisers share the same frame and suspension, same great ride and handling, same rider ergonomics – and, like all Indian® Chief® cruisers, both have the powerful Thunder Stroke® 111 engine. Attributing to the classic Indian Motorcycle® bodywork, the Dark Horse® has standard Indian Motorcycle® features like ABS braking, cruise control, and keyless ignition, not to mention outstanding performance. The Dark Horse® weighs slightly less than the Chief® Classic, meaning the Dark Horse® has the best power-to-weight ratio of any model with the Thunder Stroke® 111 engine.
