Indian Motorcycle (Full Size)

On August 3, 2013, Polaris introduced three all-new Indian-branded bikes based on the Indian marque’s historic appearance, as well as the Thunder Stroke 111 V-twin engine. The engine is a triple-cam design with a chain-driven central cam that turns the front and rear cams through gears, allowing for parallel arrangement of the pushrods to resemble older Indian designs. It’s air-cooled, with massive conventional fins and an airbox built into the cast aluminum frame. This aluminum frame design is shared by all Indians powered by the Thunder Stroke 111 engine, albeit the wheelbase and front end rake vary depending on model. The integrated gearbox is gear-driven as well.

Since 2013, Indian has increased their model lineup to five models, which are now available in 23 trim levels. Twelve of them are powered by the Thunderstroke 111 engine. The Scout engines, which have a smaller engine displacement and are liquid-cooled, are used in five of the offerings. The Scout offers four trim levels with the 69.14 cu in (1,133.0 cm3) engine, while the Scout 60 has a 61 cu in (1,000 cm3) variation. Indian offers three variations of their FTR 1200, a sportier cycle that was introduced in 2019. And, beginning in 2020, the Challenger Bagger with the all-new Indian PowerPlus liquid-cooled 60-degree V-twin will be available in three variants.

Chief Classic (2014–2018 )

The valanced fenders and the LED “war bonnet” on the front fender are standard on the Chief Classic. This and all other versions come standard with cruise control, antilock braking, keyless entry, and electronic fuel injection. It includes a six-speed gearbox and a single-shock swingarm that can be adjusted manually.

Chief Vintage (2014– )

The Indian Chief Vintage has the Chief Classic’s chassis, drivetrain, and design, but adds tan leather quick-release saddlebags, a matching tan leather two-up seat, more chrome trim, a quick-release windscreen, and a six-speed transmission.

Springfield (2016– )

The Springfield debuted on March 2016 during Daytona Bike Week. It is named after Springfield, Massachusetts, the birthplace of Indian Motorcycles. The Springfield is a hybrid cycle in that it shares steering geometry and hardbags with the Chieftain and RoadMaster models, but it also has a fast remove windscreen like the Vintage. Like the other touring versions, it has an adjustable rear air shock.

Chieftain (2014– )

The Indian Chieftain touring motorbike is the company’s first model to have a front fairing and hard saddlebags. It boasts a sound system with speakers built into the fairing, Bluetooth media players, tire pressure sensors, an air-adjustable rear shock, and a motorized windscreen adjustment. Initial press reports were positive in terms of aesthetics, performance, and handling. RoadRunner Motorcycle Touring & Travel magazine awarded the Chieftain the 2013 Motorcycle of the Year.

Roadmaster (2015– )

The Indian Roadmaster debuted soon before the Scout during the 2014 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. The Roadmaster is essentially a Chieftain with a trunk, front fairing lowers, heated seats, heated grips, LED headlights, passenger floorboards, and a rear crash bar. The Roadmaster was created before the Chieftain. At the rear tire, Cycle World measured 72.4 horsepower (54.0 kW) at 4,440 rpm and 102.7 lbft (139.2 Nm) at 2,480 rpm. They also reported a tested 1/4 mile time of 13.91 seconds at 94.44 mph (151.99 km/h), a 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) acceleration time of 5.2 seconds, a 125 ft (38 m) braking distance, and a fuel economy of 35.9 mpgUS (6.55 L/100 km; 43.1 mpg-imp).

Chief Dark Horse (2016– )

On Valentine’s Day 2015, the 2016 Indian Dark Horse was unveiled. It’s built on a flat-black Chief Classic that’s been stripped of its driving lights, oil cooler, analog fuel gauge, passenger pillion seat, and passenger pegs.

Chieftain Dark Horse (2016– )

In May of 2016, the 2016 Indian Chieftain Dark Horse was released. It features a complete fairing and sturdy saddlebags, but the Chieftain range lacks additional accoutrements. It claims 119.2 lbft (161.6 Nm) of torque at 3000 rpm and a dry weight of 803 lb (364 kg).

Indian Chief Vintage

The Indian Chief is a motorbike produced by the Hendee Manufacturing Company and its successor, the Indian Motocycle Company, from 1922 until the company’s demise in 1953. The Indian Chief was the company’s “big twin,” a bigger, more powerful motorcycle than the Scout, which was intended for competition and sport riding.

When Indian restarted civilian manufacture after WWII, they only resurrected the Chief line.

Production of Indian motorcycles stopped with the final Chief built in 1953.

Origin

The Chief was released in 1922 to replace the Powerplus, however the Powerplus was nevertheless sold under the name “Standard” until 1923. The Chief, designed by Charles B. Franklin, shared design elements with Franklin’s previous Scout, such as a gearbox connected to the engine casings and main drive by gear train. The Chief, like the Powerplus/Standard, had a bore of 3+18 inches (79 mm) and a stroke of 3+3132 inches (101 mm), with a displacement of 61 cubic inches. The Chief, unlike the Powerplus/Standard, did not have rear suspension.

The Big Chief was first presented in 1923. The Big Chief’s engine was bored to 34 inches (83 mm) and stroked to 4+716 inches (113 mm), resulting in a displacement of 74 cubic inches. The Big Chief was designed primarily for sidecar use, although it was also popular with solo riders. The smaller-engined Chief was phased out in 1928, owing in part to increasing manufacturing of the Model 101 Scout.

Development

The Chief frame was redesigned for 1940 to feature plunger rear suspension. All Indian models were restyled with broad, ornamental fenders the same year.

The Indian 340-B, based on the Chief, was a military motorcycle. The 340-B featured open fenders and was typically delivered with a sidecar. Customers included the United States military, which got around 3,000 units, and France, which received 5,000 units before surrendering to Germany in 1940.

Post-war

The Chief was the only pre-war Indian model produced after World War II. Before the war, the leaf-sprung trailing-link fork was replaced by girder forks identical to those used by the military 841 and the Sport Scout.

In 1949, no Chiefs were produced. The Chief was reintroduced in 1950, with telescopic forks replacing the girder forks and an engine stroked to 80 cu in (1,300 cc). The Chief’s manufacture terminated in 1953, marking the end of Indian motorcycle production.

Later Chiefs

Brockhouse

Brockhouse Engineering, the owner of the Indian trademarks and distribution network, offered a rebadged Royal Enfield Meteor as the Indian Chief in 1959.

1920-2013

From 1999 to 2003, the Indian Motorcycle Company of America (IMCA) produced Indian Chief bikes in Gilroy, California. Initially, they employed clones of Harley-Davidson Evolution engines made from S&S components. Later versions made use of the “Powerplus” engine developed in-house.

In 2006, a new firm in King’s Mountain, North Carolina, began manufacturing Indian Chiefs. The IMCA Chief was upgraded in these versions. After Polaris Industries purchased the firm, production of the Chief was relocated to Spirit Lake, Iowa.

2014-present

Indian introduced a new Indian Chief motorbike with a new engine in 2014. Nothing on the 2014 Chief is based on the previous Chief purchased from King’s Mountain.
