New electronic wizardry includes Ride Modes, LED lighting, and Rear Cylinder Deactivation for the 2019 Chieftains.

Inside we find new tech in the form of full LED lighting and new riding-enhancing technology including Ride Modes that introduce three distinct throttle maps for three distinct ride personalities. For increased rider comfort at a stop or slow-moving in traffic, all Thunder Stroke 111 models now have Rear Cylinder Deactivation that, under specific conditions, deactivates the rear engine cylinder to reduce the amount of heat that washes up over the rider. If you’ve ever been stuck in a situation where you can’t filter, you’ll appreciate this.

As we continue to evolve the Indian Motorcycle brand, we want to expand our lineup with more aggressive style options, while still maintaining the availability of our more classic style options,” said Reid Wilson, Senior Director for Indian Motorcycle. “What’s most important to us is developing motorcycles that meet a wide variety of customer style preferences, and Chieftain’s new look does just that.”
