But the new 2019 models – the Indian Chieftain, Chieftain Dark Horse, and Chieftain Limited – all feature more streamlined, aggressive styling. If you’re a diehard Indian rider – don’t worry, the Indian Chieftain Classic will continue to feature its traditional fairing and iconic balanced front fender. The new models feature a trimmed and slimmed design, full LED lighting, and new fork guards. The feature we are most excited about is how the bike will let riders choose between three rider modes (Tour, Standard, or Sport) for an enhanced and customizable riding experience.
