Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ultimate bobber An excellent motorcycle, I am very glad I bought it. I can highlight the defects and the virtues. Defects: 1. The cooling system is deficient, with an engine of that size in traffic it becomes a real boiler, I do not understand why the smallest and cheapest Indian engines have liquid cooling and the largest ones do not. 2. To hear the true sound of the engine you need to buy the stage one of the indian brand, they should sell it from the factory together with the motorcycle even if it costs a little more expensive, literally all the indian owners complain about the same thing and we all end up buying exhausts from another brand. Virtues: 1. The technology is vastly superior to any other cruiser 2. The suspension is the best currently, there is no smoother cruiser. 3. The design is absolutely beautiful, it will draw attention wherever you go. 4. The overall driving experience is amazing. In conclusion, excellent work INDIAN MOTORCYCLES and POLARIS please continue to amaze us with your excellent vehicles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excelente absolutely love this bike. i immediately upgraded to the stage two kit so some points on my review could be a slightly different experience from others. however, i honestly feel like everyone just NEEDS to bite the bullet and make that upgrade but i won't linger on that. the sound was good preupgrade but after the upgrade it's 100% on point (it crackles and pops so good). been riding it for about seven months now and it runs like a dream every time. p.s. got some great saddle bags from an italian company i found on line called ends cuoio, received them relatively fast. they are very well constructed and look amazing. i mention this for anyone looking for the same. cheers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2023 Chief Bobber Darkhorse in Black Smoke I'm two months in. I rode a lot as a teenager, took the classes and got my license. I finally pulled the trigger. I ride early on Saturday and Sunday to avoid traffic. This bike is amazing. Fast, fun, solid, old school looking but with the latest tech. I can't take it anywhere without people asking about it, even the Harley guys like it. Thank you to Russle at Indian of Denver in Lakewood for taking such great care of me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A superior bike for the everyday rider… My Indian Dark horse bobber is the new love of my life, great features such as Ride Command, ABS and Cruise control. This bike won’t let you down like a failed marriage with alimony. Every ride fells new and fresh…. Not dull and stale like having to crawl in bed with the same ole whale with no tricks. The Indian Chief is an absolute life partner and never going to let you down….

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chief awesome This is the second Indian motorcycle I owned. I upgraded from the scout bobber and I’m so happy I did. My chief is so comfortable and fun to ride. I definitely recommend. The stock sound isn’t great though I upgraded the pipes.
