The Indian Chief Vintage offers top-quality quick-release soft-sided leather bags, leather fringe, chrome fender tips, vintage chrome badging on the front fender and a quick-release windshield for easy installation or removal. It includes the same premium standard features as the Indian Chief Classic, and sports the same iconic design elements like valanced fenders, laced wheels, whitewall tires, tank-mounted instrument cluster and extensive chrome finishes throughout. It is also powered by the new Thunder Stroke 111 engine.

Special features unique to the Chief Vintage include the quick release windshield and stunningly detailed leather saddlebags, which you can install or remove without tools in minutes to convert your bike between cruiser and soft bagger. Also easy to install or remove is the distressed tan leather fringe for the leather seat. Chrome fender tips add style and protection, and there’s a chrome script vintage badge on the front fender.


The Indian Chief Vintage has iconic Indian Motorcycle® features such as valanced fenders, multi-function instrumentation atop the tear-drop fuel tank, and the lit War Bonnet guiding the way up front.

It also has several features that are special yet standard, including: Cruise control, keyless start, ABS, throttle by wire, an innovative cast aluminum frame with integrated air intake – and extensive chrome from end to end.

Powering the new generation of Indian Motorcycle riders down the open road is the Thunder Stroke™ 111. This smooth, powerful and efficient new engine combines both style and power, inspired by earlier Chiefs of the 1940s.

Classic Iconic Features

Indian Motorcycle® Badging One of the classic elements of an Indian Motorcycle® is the vintage badging. Ever since the Indian® script logo was first created in 1910, and Indian Motorcycle® Red became the standard Indian Motorcycle® color in 1912, these features have made the Indian Motorcycle® badging a hallmark of this historic brand.

War Bonnet Lighting the way as it has done since 1947 is the iconic War Bonnet. Mounted proudly atop the front fender in a chrome frame, this light makes it clear, “This is a genuine Indian Motorcycle®.”

Valenced Fenders Valenced Fenders Stylish, elegant and functional, the iconic valenced fenders, standard since 1940, enhance the flowing styling lines of every Indian Motorcycle®. They also provide protection, effectively blocking road spray and gravel kicked up by the tires.

Brake Caliper Covers Every Indian® Chief® Vintage is equipped with outstanding brakes, and in keeping with our traditional styling, we choose to cover the calipers. The result is a clean, stylish, beautifully finished sheet metal - iconic Indian Motorcycle® valanced fenders.
