What’s The Buzz?
Indian has long been a major competitor of Harley-Davidson, known industry-wide as the King of Paint for the large selection and beautiful colors and colorways on its motorcycles. Indian steps up its game by adding four paint options to the Chieftain Limited.
According to the news out of Indian’s head office, “With Chieftain Limited, our aim was to deliver a more modern version of the Chieftain with a bit more attitude than its predecessors, and the response from the market has shown that the new design has resonated extremely well with our customers and dealers,” said Reid Wilson, Director of Marketing for Indian Motorcycle. “Considering the significant demand we’ve experienced, the expanded new colorways couldn’t be coming at a better time.”
The new colors, of course, come with a price. The new paint bumps the base price of $24,499 up to $24,999 for Silver Smoke and White Smoke, and $25,699 for the two-tones Star Silver over Thunder Black and Wildfire Red over Thunder Black.
