2022 Indian Chief Lineup: In Pictures
There are three new models in the 2022 Indian Chief lineup
Indian Motorcycles has unveiled its 2022 Chief lineup. The range gets three new models: Chief Dark Horse, Chief Bobber Dark Horse, and the Super Chief Limited, all part of the Indian Chief’s centenary celebrations. The three models have been revamped for 2022. So we thought it’d be nice to dedicate a photo gallery to these beautiful motorcycles:
Indian Chief Dark Horse
The new Indian Chief Dark Horse does away with its old, bulky appeal. It takes on a stealthier styling approach with blacked out mechanicals and less of chrome.
The sleek look is thanks to a new slim headlight and exposed shockers.
It sits on 19/16-inch tyres with black alloy wheels, mid-set foot controls for better comfort, and a single-piece seat.
The Chief Dark Horse comes in three colours: Black Smoke, Alumina Jade Smoke, and Stealth Gray.
Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse
If the Chief Dark Horse isn’t dark enough for you, Indian has you covered with its Bobber Dark Horse.
Unlike the Chief, the Bobber gets front and rear shock sleeves and a slightly larger LED headlight. Obviously, everything is blacked out.
Moreover, the Bobber gets a mini-ape handlebar, spoke wheels, and slightly forward foot controls.
It comes in three shades: Black Smoke, Titanium Smoke, and Sagebrush Smoke.
Indian Super Chief Limited
The Indian Super Chief Limited personifies comfort. Thanks to its chrome elements, the Super Chief looks more classy compared to the other two.
This one gets a mid-rise handlebar and front-set footboards, ensuring comfortable riding posture.
The Super Chief Limited also gets a pillion seat, unlike the standard Chief and the Bobber.
Other features include a quick-release windscreen, spoke wheels, and leather saddle bags.
Indian is offering the Super Chief Limited in Black Metallic, Blue Slate Metallic, and Maroon Metallic colour options, making it the most vibrant of the three Chiefs.
All the three use Indian’s Euro5-compliant, Thunder 116, 1890cc V-Twin motor that makes 160Nm of torque. They also feature Indian’s new rear-cylinder deactivation system.
While the Indian Chief lineup is considered old school, the three new models are replete with features. They get a round 4-inch touchscreen instrument cluster with ride modes, cruise control, Indian’s Ride Command system, turn-by-turn navigation, multiple interfaces, and two gauge configurations.
Rounding off the list are LED lighting, keyless ignition, ABS, cruise control, and a USB port, all offered as standard.
All three models come with a new steel-tube frame with a cast-aluminium rear subframe and Pirelli Night Dragon tyres. Stopping power is courtesy of single disc brakes at both ends.
