Both, the Indian Chieftain Elite and Chieftain Limited get power from the same 1,811cc, Thunderstroke engine mated to a six-speed transmission system. The motor is good for churning out 161.6 Nm of torque. The motorcycle tips the scales at 364 kg. The new Indian Chieftain Elite will be available for sale in a single colour option only namely Black Hills Silver. The said colour for the Indian Chieftain Elite is its biggest visual highlight as it is hand painted on the motorcycle.
