In 1921 Indian unveiled the Indian Chief and its only appropriate to celebrate the 100th anniversary of its release. Indian has unveiled three reimagined variations of the iconic Indian Chief for the 2022 Indian lineup.

It’s been eight years since a redesign of the iconic Chief model. The Chief Classic, Vintage, and Chieftain launched in 2013, and there’s no better time for a refresher than its 100th birthday.

The 2022 lineup includes the Chief, Chief Bobber, and Super Chief. All three of the remastered icons will have a “dark” side which will include a variety of options for a total of six brand new bikes.

Though Polaris acquired Indian Motorcycles some years ago, the history of America’s first motorcycle company can never be forgotten. Indian has captured the mechanical simplicity of classic American V-twins but included modern features and sophistication.

Official press release below:

Smoke, the Chief starts at $14,499.

111 engine with a mix of chrome and black details for a timeless
