New Range-topping Indian Chieftain Elite First Rideing



Factory custom specials have long been the preserve of Harley-Davidson’s Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) department, however this is often new territory for Indian. Yes, there are specials (the 2 Jack Daniels models spring to mind), however this meretricious Elite heralds a replacement chapter in resurgent Indian’s fashionable history. Identical in nearly each relevancy the Chieftain restricted, the new Elite doesn’t boast a awfully long list of changes to satisfy the BDT. 519000/= increase on the value tag, however the standard and price of the things on the list is, at least, on the far side reproach.

The lion’s share of the hike is due to the paintjob. No 2 are identical, as a result of each single Elite are hand-painted by Indian’s Spearfish paintshop in Coyote State – and therefore the quality is jaw-dropping. If you purchased a paintjob of this commonplace severally it might simply swallow the value distinction all on its own. the sole draw back is that you simply have Henry Ford story levels of color alternative. You either take the Elite during this ‘Fireglow Red Candy with Marble Accents’ – otherwise you don’t have associate Elite. And that’s a shame for everybody with associate hypersensitivity reaction to candy red bikes. The particularisation is great, and continues through the distinctive tank console, horn, airbox, primary and cam covers with color matched pinstripes.

The other variations over a stock restricted embrace a try of pannier-mounted speakers to bolster the blast from the binnacle-mounted ones that tie in to the superb Ride Command system; what Indian decision their ‘Flare’ screen – that isn’t abundant taller than stock, however is flaring wider; billet footboards for each rider and seat, and light-emitting diode ‘Pathfinder’ lighting. This smattering of specialty adds 6kg to the Elite’s mass, that feels like plenty, however it’s inconsequential on what was already a 371kg bike.

On the road you definitely feel that bit a lot of special, and conspicuous, and whereas the ride is a dead ringer for the restricted, I did notice the footboards somewhat annoying. The exposed billet centres on the boards provide no grip, and once wet they’re glassy within the extreme. however that’s the sole obvious distinction in terms of feel. That Flare screen, though a shade wider, truly created no tangible distinction to flowing for my wide 5’11” frame, whereas the light-emitting diode guide lighting is definitely brighter, whiter, and cleaner trying.
