2014 Indian Chief Classic: First Ride

Indian Motorcycle made their debut in our country with the Chief range and we spend a day aboard the Chief Classic

The seats are just 26 inches from the ground, which makes the riding position lower towards the ground, while the tank and handle bars feel as if they are inclining towards you and your legs are stretched forward and relaxed on the floorboards. The Indian Chief range comes equipped with keyless-start, which means you have to keep the key fob in your pocket, press the power button on the tank and then thumb the starter to bring the V-twin engine to life with a mild and bassy exhaust note which is vastly different from that of Harley-Davidson’s.

The clutch pull is reasonable but a little on the heavier side, while gear shifts are little hard. The throttle is ride-by-wire but when you twist open it there is hardly any difference in terms of throttle feel as the bike surges ahead with a gentle push. The engine is one of the highlights of the Classic and is impressively smooth and refined for an American V-twin.

Polaris designed and engineered the new Chief range from the ground up in just 27 months!

The 1,811cc, fuel-injected, V-twin engine pushes out 139Nm of peak torque at just 2,500rpm and is mated to a six-speed transmission

The torque is the star of the show in the Classic and the bike just pulls seamlessly at any gear or any speed one is riding on

The bike comes equipped with cruise control to make the highways rides even more comfortable

The ride quality is supple and this can be credited to the telescopic front shock and preload adjustable ones at the rear also bike has ample ground clearance and we never scrapped the bike while going over speed bumps or potholes

The most striking feature of the Chief is its skirted and curvy fenders, which add so much character to the bikes overall silhouette and makes the bike feel more bulky than it really is

The charm of the Classic lies in its retro-detailing like white-walled tyres, leather strip on the fuel tank with embossed Indian badge, 40-spoke chrome wheels, straight-twin chrome pipes, sculpted leather seats and the trademark Red Indian logo on the front fender

The overall design of the bike is visually arresting and the designers have to be lauded for retaining the design ethos of the original Indian Chief but with a dash of modernity.
