A STEP UP IN POWER. AND MENACE.
Timeless design, legendary past, and unobtrusive modern technology.
The air-cooled Thunderstroke 116 produces 162Nm of raw torque for passing power in all 6 gears, giving you the power to leave everything—and everyone—in your exhaust.
BLACKED-OUT BOBBER DESIGN
Loaded with attitude and blacked-out finishes from fender to bobbed fender. A welded steel tube frame, large headlight bucket with nallece, and covered forks and rear shocks give a nod to traditional bobber style.
4" RIDE COMMAND TOUCHSCREEN
The 4″ touchscreen maintains a classic aesthetic by disguising itself as an analog gauge. Use it as a speedo and a tach, but it also provides turn-by-turn navigation, controls ride modes, lets you answer and decline calls, and manage your music from any Bluetooth-connected device.
STYLE FOR MILES
Iconic Indian Motorcycle style ensure heads turn wherever the Chief roams.
BLACK, AND MORE BLACK
Dark by design with premium gloss-black finishes from fender to fender.
OWN THE ROAD
A low solo seat gives you a commanding feel, while the forward pegs and mini ape bars put your feet forward and your fists in the wind.
Rooted in history, designed for the present. The iconic Indian Motorcycle headdress logo is a celebration of the original Chief.
MODERN TECHNOLOGY HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT.
More of what you need, less of what you don’t.
