Indian Motorcycle’s designers have reimagined what a top-of-the-line Chieftain should look like and have added custom paint and other design features to create a more premium look than ever before.

The new 2017 Chieftain Elite is a masterpiece for those that want an ultra-exclusive Indian Motorcycle that will turn heads.

Only 350 of these will be sold globally.

“With Chieftain Elite we wanted to design the most-premium, feature-packed Chieftain that we could possibly imagine,” said Reid Wilson, Director of Marketing for Indian Motorcycle. “In the end, I think the bike exceeded even our own high expectations. It’s an absolute show stopper.”

For those who demand the best of the best, the Chieftain Elite steps up to the plate as a bike that’s as close to custom as possible.

The Chieftain Elite features a custom Fireglow Red Candy with Marble Accents paint scheme completed entirely by hand by Indian Motorcycle’s paint facility located in Spearfish, South Dakota. It takes a small, specialised team over 25 hours to hand paint each bike and no two Chieftain Elites look exactly the same.

The Chieftain Elite has a cutback front fender that shows off the new ten-spoke 19″ front wheel beautifully.

Chieftain Elite Headlight Bagger

The headlight bezel has been colour matched to the fairing and the leather saddle is more streamline than the standard model and has contrast stitching.

The Chieftain Elite also comes with a wealth of premium amenities:

  • Instead of a standard headlight, it has a Pathfinder LED headlight and driving lights.
  • There’s a flared power windshield
  • Rider and passenger floorboards are made from billet aluminium
  • It has 200-watt sound system (two speakers in the fairing and two in the saddlebags)
Chieftain Elite Infotainment System

It also has the industry leading Ride Command seven-inch infotainment system and anti-lock brakes (ABS), a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), keyless ignition, a power adjustable windshield and just enough chrome to tastefully highlight all the attitude this ultra-exclusive bike has to offer.
