Chief Classic

Pure Uncompromising Style

Stripped down until all that's left is an irresistible urge to ride. Take it all in, and you'll see a front end that drips with chrome, laced wheels wearing whitewall tires, and a light-up headress on the deeply valanced front fender leading the way. There's always somebody who wants to get a better look at the Classic's beautiful curves.

Chief Classic

Thunder Stroke Stage 1 Exhaust

A Thunder Stroke Stage 1 Exhaust gives an Indian Chief Classic a rich, deep, and powerful exhaust note. It is road music for a rider’s soul, and it properly represents the Thunder Stroke V-Twin’s outstanding performance.
