Indian Motorcycles has launched its BS6 compliant Chief line-up in the domestic market. Priced from Rs 20.75 lakh (ex-showroom), the 2022 Indian Chief lineup consists of the updated Chief Dark Horse, Chief Bobber Dark Horse, and Indian Super Chief Limited. The revamped range has been launched on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the American motorcycle brand. The manufacturer has started accepting bookings for these motorcycles.
2022 Indian Chief range is underpinned by the same Steel-Tube frame from the old model. These, however, get slight changes to the bobbed rear fenders, shocks, exhausts, LED lighting, and the large spoke wheels shod with Pirelli Night Dragon tires. The new bikes offer a host of equipment and features like cruise control, ride modes- Sport, Standard, and Tour, keyless ignition, and a new 101mm round RIDE COMMAND system with a touchscreen interface and multiple connectivity options. Besides these, the Chief Bobber Dark Horse gets signature design elements of the post-war era bobbers and the Super Chief Limited gets a prominent windshield and saddling as well.
Even while staying loyal to classic American motorcycles in terms of core design, the new Chief range packs multiple modern-day equipment, features, and technologies.
