Indian Motorcycle has launched the new Chieftain Elite priced at Rs. 38 lakh (Ex-showroom). The new Indian Chieftain Elite features special upgrades over the standard version including a bespoke paint job, additional equipment, custom leather seats and lots more. The Indian Chieftain Elite was announced last year and only 350 units of the luxury cruiser will be produced globally. This is Indian's second limited edition motorcycle making its way to India after the Roadmaster Elite.


The 2018 Indian Chieftain Elite gets a new paint scheme called Black Hills Silver and features marble accenting. The marbling process in the paint ensures that no two Chieftain Elite look the same. The bespoke paintwork takes 25 hours to complete, according to the manufacturer. In addition, the cruiser also comes with Indian's Ride Command Infotainment system that is equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, and a 200-watt premium audio system. The bike also gets custom stitched leather seats and Aluminium floorboards, completing the look on the motorcycle.


Power on the 2018 Indian Chieftain Elite comes from the same 1811 cc Thunderstroke 111 V-twin engine that is also seen on the standard Chieftain range. The motor has been tuned to offer 161.6 Nm of peak torque at 3000 rpm on the Chieftain Elite, which is 11.6 Nm more than the standard model. The bike carries over all other components from the standard range including the 119 mm telescopic front forks, and a 114 mm monoshock suspension setup at the rear.
