Everything about Sport Chief was purpose built from the factory to perform. With premium performance components known across the two-wheeled industry, Sport Chief proves high standards never go out of style. When it comes to performance capability and aggressive style, Sport Chief pushes American V-Twin performance cruisers to the next level.
Sport Chief is the ultimate performance cruiser in the Indian Motorcycle lineup thanks to proven name brand components: longer Fox® piggyback rear shocks, 46mm KYB® inverted front forks, and dual Brembo® 4 piston calipers with semi-floating 320mm rotors. Confidence comes easy, and head turning style that gets recognised is even easier.
Building the best doesn't stop at premium suspension and braking components. Putting the rider in the proper position to maximise performance matters too. Thanks to a gunfighter style solo seat with taller bolster, increased 29.5 degree lean angle and mid controls, riders can ride harder and longer with more confidence and comfort.
Sport Chief has a performance style to match all of its ride enhancing components. The new Quarter Fairing sports a 6.5” windscreen for wind protection and an aggressive look. Contrast cut lightweight cast alloy 19-inch Front Wheel and stout 16-inch Rear Wheel set the stance and wear sticky Pirelli® Night Dragon tyres, providing both style and control.
Raising the bar on performance style means no detail is overlooked. Stylish gloss black 6-inch Moto style risers with machine highlights come standard and mean business. Machined Triples and moto style handlebars tie it all together, both in custom looks and dialed ergonomics that fit its aggressive style.
The 4-inch touchscreen maintains a classic aesthetic by disguising itself as an analog gauge. It provides turn-by-turn navigation, lets you control ride modes, answer and decline calls, and manage your music from any Bluetooth-connected device.
The ultimate performance cruiser needs proven American muscle at its core. The legendary air-cooled Thunderstroke 116 V-twin produces 162 Nm of raw torque that dominates in all 6 gears, giving you the power to leave everything, and everyone, in your exhaust and a haze of tyre smoke.
We did the hard stuff so riders can make it their own. Sport Chief boasts a classic mechanical design with a simple steel tubed frame, air-cooled V-twin engine, and iconic cruiser styling, making it an invitation to customise. Chopping and bobbing isn't required thanks to a host of factory Indian Motorcycle accessories that install easily for an even more stylish look and increased performance capability.
There’s nothing standard about the game-changing ride amenities every Sport Chief comes with; 3 ride modes (Sport, Standard, Tour), cruise control, keyless ignition, ABS, LED Lighting, and a USB charging port.
