2014 Indian Chief Classic Bringing Sexy Back as It Battles HD

The 2014 Indian Chief Classic is a great bike. About the ride, Motorcycle USA says, “With the 2014 Indian Chief Vintage, Polaris has done an admirable job of combining the classic and contemporary.” Motor Trend calls it “a true Harley-Davidson fighter,” while Cycle World says riding one “feels like a miracle.”

Yes, the 2014 Indian Chief Classic is indeed a great bike.  

It is actually a great large bike. Measuring in at close to nine inches longer than a HD Softail, it is a bike made for cruising long and far. In fact, with its single-tank range of 190 miles, a biker has little reason not to take the new Indian Chief Classic long, long, long. 

The new motorcycle is not just a sight for the eyes, it also pleases the backside and the ears. Its roar is superb, according to the Wall Street Journal automotive reporter Dan Neil. Neil also dropped “fantastic” and “a great overland bike,” when writing about the bike.

What is especially interesting about this two-cylindered, 1.8-liter-engined bike is its price. At $18,999, its MSRP is 28 percent less than what a 2013 model-year Indian goes for and more than comparable to the cost of a Heritage Softail.
