Apple CarPlay and More: All New Features from Indian Motorcycles

Classic motorcycle brands like Harley Davidson and Indian Motorcycles have continued to invest in modern technologies without sacrificing the classic looks and sounds that riders love. The 2021 Indian Chieftain Motorcycle is no exception. Part of their bagger line of motorcycles which also includes the Indian Challenger, it offers more storage space than their smaller scout lineup. Nevertheless, the Chieftain is leaner and lighter than the full-size touring motorcycle like the Indian Roadmaster or Roadmaster Limited. With blacked-out styling and a classic design, you’ll be impressed when you see someone riding the 2021 Indian Chieftain motorcycle in Niles. 

If you’re looking for a new motorcycle that will impress people across Ohio, consider a 2021 Indian Motorcycle. Today, we want to focus on some of the technological features that make the 2021 Indian Chieftain so special.

Ride Command comes standard on the Chieftain Dark Horse, Chieftain Elite, Chieftain Limited, which feature larger Thunderstroke 116 engines than the base model.

Plus, the windshield is push-button powered, making it easy to adjust the height for comfort and different weather conditions. Cruise control and locking saddlebags also come standard, as does a Thermoelectric heating and cooling system for your seat. Together, these features create a versatile, all-weather motorcycle.

When it comes to the rest of the motorcycle, this bike has some of the best engineering available. Indian uses air cooling to unleash the classic American sound of the Thunderstroke 111 V-Twin engine. On this bike, you’ll be both seen and heard!
