It’s all in the details, as the Chieftain Elite’s eye-catching Heavy Metal Smoke paint is complemented by premium bronze finishes, including the tank’s Indian Motorcycle headdress, saddlebag latches, centre console, primary cover and airbox. Oil-rubbed bronze finishes across the engine’s push rod tubes, horn cover, and cam cover take the Chieftain Elite’s style to an entirely new level straight from the factory.
The Chieftain Elite’s streamlined fairing, slammed saddlebags with sharp lines and hard edges contribute to the bike’s aggressive demeanour. In addition, LED saddlebag lights, a two-up comfort seat, low suspension, precision machined wheels, and premium blacked-out finishes complete the Chieftain Elite’s head-turning style.
Unmatched, Air-Cooled Performance
Packing the most powerful Indian Motorcycle air-cooled engine, the Thunderstroke 116, the Chieftain Elite delivers class-leading performance with 171 Nm of torque. Rear cylinder deactivation improves rider comfort when riding through slower traffic, while three selectable ride modes, including Tour, Standard and Sport, allow riders to adjust the bike’s throttle response to match their riding style.

As standard equipment, the 2022 Chieftain Elite packs premium amenities, including an Adaptive Pathfinder LED headlight, an adjustable and tinted flare windscreen, spacious aluminium select floorboards, rear saddlebag LED lights, backlit switch cubes, and an integrated 400-watt PowerBand audio system. Like the Indian Challenger Elite, the Chieftain Elite features the seven-inch touchscreen display powered by RIDE COMMAND with Apple CarPlay® and GPS with navigation*. Standard features include, ABS, keyless ignition, tire pressure monitoring, as well as weatherproof and remote-locking saddlebags with more than 68 litres of storage.
