The new Classic is the entry level Chief and is the only Chief model available with short fenders. It features the Indian script tank logo and is available in standard Indian Red or Thunder Black. Optional colors are also available in Dark Water Blue or Starlight Silver. The price starts at $25,999.

All Chiefs feature a 105 cubic inch PowerPlus V-Twin powertrain with electronic closed loop sequential port fuel injection. Engine cylinders are Nikasil plated and the stainless stell exhaust system is an integrated 3-way catalytic converter with heated oxygen sensors.

A six-speed Baker transmission delivers power through the belt drive. Stopping is achieved via Brembo 4-piston calipers, with 11.5" dual rotors up front. Standard 5.5-gallon tank helps extend cruising range. Seats are all-leather and built to exacting specifications.
