Indian Super Chief

New for 2021, the Super Chief is a celebration of the 100-year-old Chief platform. It rolls with an all-new frame, is powered by the proven Thunder Stroke 111, and displays old-school bagger DNA in its large windshield and stock saddlebags. The classic look of the frame and sheet metal gets a boost by the faux flathead engine, though performance and electronics are decidedly up-to-date.

Effortless cruising and, even though it’s built for straight-line stability, the ride is surprisingly nimble

Indian rolls out its MY22 Super Chief Limited in the 2021 season to add a nostalgic note to the new Super Chief platform. Powered by a Thunderstroke 116 plant, the “SCL” bundles modern performance and electronics with old school custom looks that hail all the way back to the years immediately after the end of WWII.

America’s oldest motorcycle manufacturer rolls into model-year 2022 with a new platform that pulls double duty as a celebration of the Chief’s 100th anniversary; the Indian Super Chief.

More on the Indian Super Chief

The new Super Chief is, without a doubt, an image-driven machine. Fat, skirted forks float the front end with widespread blackout treatment that extends to include the bottom of the glass. The sheet metal is heavily bobbed at both the front and back fenders. This gives it a connection to the classic custom world that is impossible to ignore. As for the technology, it’s far ahead of the looks with a trio of Ride Modes that lets you dial in your preferred power-delivery profile, LED lighting ensures two-way visibility with the rest of the world, and an optional ABS feature that you can take or leave as you please. Besides the bags and glass, this is a fairly essential machine that wastes not an ounce on superfluous vanity items. That said, it makes a dandy blank canvas for custom projects for show, or just to show off.
