Motorcycle enthusiasts have been showering praise on the revived Indian brand, and the 2014 Indian Chief Classic is no exception.
The Wall Street Journal called it “fantastic” and “a great overland bike.” Motorcycle USA said, “With the 2014 Indian Chief Vintage, Polaris has done an admirable job of combining the classic and contemporary.”
The stunning new cruiser is a big bruiser with a 68.1-inch wheelbase underlying a 103.5-inch bike — a full 9 inches longer than a comparable Harley Softail.
The larger size is matched with a two-cylinder, 18-liter engine that brings home an estimated 35 miles per gallon (combined) for about 190 miles in between fill-ups for long trips and ground shaking torque.
America’s oldest motorcycle brand will turn heads in iconic Indian style with an innovative aluminum frame with integrated intake a leather seat, mirror-chromed steel headlamp and tech upgrades such as anti-lock brakes, cruise control, LED lighting and keyless ignition.
All that for about 28 percent less than the 2013 Indian Chief sold for.
