With its classic design language, low slung stature, massive windscreen and the special seat design the Indian Chief Vintage LE is certainly a looker. This interesting motorcycle combines perfectly the Indian style with traditional elements and modern accents offering a fairly unique visual experience.

The most striking style details include the classic two-tone paint scheme, chrome highway pegs and the arrow-style shift rods.

The motorcycle is propelled by a Power Plus, air-cooled unit with a displacement of 105 cubic inches which sends its power to the ground through a six speed transmission.

The ride quality is kept in check by a 41 mm front fork (travel 4.25") paired with a rear single shock absorber (Travel 2.90").

The Indian Chief Vintage LE sits on 16 inch rims wrapped in 130/90-16 front and 150/80-16 rear white wall tyres.

All three words in the name of this bike exemplify the kind of machine this is. The Indian Chief Classic is as iconic a line to ever come out of the Indian Motorcycle brand.

Its design is simple in order to take advantage of its no-frills characteristics. Air-brushed pinstripes, a tear drop head lamp, a glass front fender light, a black and polished engine with chrome covers, a solo seat available in black leather, chrome-spoked wheels, traditional black wall tires, and the signature Indian script complete the custom quality paint on each and every Indian Motorcycle, including the Chief Classic.

The classic looks are a sight to behold and although the design is relatively light on details, the Indian Chief Classic more than makes up for in its performance. Thanks to a modern 105 cc Power Plus engine that comes with a full chrome package and a 2-into-1 stainless steel exhaust system, the Chef Classic is the kind of classic cruiser that holds more purpose and function than people think.

Together with the Indian Chief Classic and the Chief Vintage, the Chief Dark Horse is one of three Indian Motorcycle models that will be offered for 2012.

Of the three, you could make a case that the sexiest of the lot is the Chief Dark Horse, which comes with a matte black finish, a classic painted Indian headdress logo on the tank, a two-into-one stainless steel exhaust, a color-matched, die-cast console, a matte black teardrop headlight, smoke black (matte) rims, and a tank-mounted speedometer with controls.

In addition, all of those also have Brembo triple-disc brakes, 5.5-gallon fuel tanks, dual 12V accessory outlets, and claimed dry weights around 750 pounds.

The 2012 Indian Chief Vintage carries the same elements of the 1840 Chief, the bike it is based on. From the the two-tone paint schemes based on the 1948 Chief, to the chrome Indian tank badge, and the fender light that will bring you back to the era where the Indian Chief ruled the highway, the new Chief Vintage is the perfect antidote to your nostalgia.

The design of the bike is straight out of a time machine. Great tan leather with fringe wraps the solo seat and saddlebags to create a distinctive nostalgic look in the Chief Vintage. It’s then complemented by b60-spoke chrome wheels with classic whitewall tires, resulting in a more complete vintage appearance. Suffice to say, the Indian Chief Vintage is a minimalist’s retro bagger.

Other styling touches done on the new Chief Vintage include fully fringed bags and deeply valanced fenders. This is the Indian bagger for the rugged individualist. Braving the elements, which are protected only by a windshield, will bring you a Power Plus 105 cubic inch powerplant that stretches its legs through a six-speed transmission.

With the motorcycle industry’s never ending progress as a result of new, more advanced technologies it is sometimes nice to just lay back and enjoy an awesome idea for a picture such as this one right here. It shows a 1908 Indian motorcycle and a 2008 Honda CBR1000RR Repsol racing bike. Obviously, the progress the world has witnessed in the past 100 years has been amazing, so the question just pops: what we’ll be riding when this Honda will occupy the Indian’s place in this picture?
