This is the second limited edition motorcycle from the Indian brand after the Roadmaster Elite. The Indian Roadmaster Elite was launched earlier this year at Rs 48 lakh, ex-showroom (India).
The new Indian Chieftain Elite comes with a number of special features over the standard version. This includes a bespoke Black Hills Silver paint job with marble accents. The marbling accents take 25 hours to complete and ensure no two motorcycles look the same.

The new Indian Chieftain Elite motorcycle is powered by a 1811cc, Thunderstroke 111 V-twin engine. The engine churns out 161.6Nm of torque at 3000rpm, which is 11.6Nm more than the standard model.
The suspension on the motorcycle is handled by 119mm telescopic front forks, with a 114mm monoshock at the rear with air adjust. While braking on the motorcycle is through dual 300mm disc at the front and a single 300mm disc at the rear.
With a kerb weight of 388kg, the Indian Chieftain Elite rides on 19-inch and 16-inch front and rear Dunlop tyres, respectively.
