STURGIS, SD— August 3, 2013 — Indian Motorcycle unveiled the all-new 2014 Indian Chief family of motorcycles in front of thousands at the site of the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame in downtown Sturgis on Saturday, August 3. The three models comprise the Chief family: The Chief Classic, Chief Vintage and the Indian Chieftan.
2014 Indian Chief Classic (starting MSRP: $18,999)
The new Indian Chief Classic features valanced fenders, rich genuine leather saddle, tank-mounted instrumentation, teardrop fuel tank design, and sculpted and lighted front fender war bonnet.

The Indian Chief Classic, like all 2014 Indian Chief models, is powered by the all-new, clean-sheet design Thunder Stroke 111 engine. Offering 111 c.i. and 119 ft/lbs of torque, this powerplant draws powerful design cues from heritage Indian Motorcycle engines.

The new Indian Chief Vintage is a soft bagger that offers quick-release soft-sided leather bags, leather fringe, chrome

It is also powered by the new Thunder Stroke 111 engine.
2014 Indian Chieftain (starting MSRP: $22,999)
The 2014 Indian Chieftain features a fairing with integrated driving lights, and its power windshield is an industry-first for a fork-mounted fairing.
