Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall great bike I bought this bike in May. I couldnt be happier im glad i made the purchase. With that said i have some bones to pick. How do you offer tpsm reading on the ride command but dont have the actual sensors on all your 2020s come on indian you can do better. And 2nd the ride command needs work how can you offer to move or change widgets but without the GPS module you cannot save them? They reset every time you shut the bike off! Again come on indian you have SOMETHING good but drop the Ball! Oh and offer the sage brush green for the chieftain!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2020 Chieftain 3 month review, I love my ride. I would submit there are too many positives to list only negative is the Ride Command, the software is restricted and features like GPS and MPG are absent. I recommend all Indian crusers come with full Ride Command.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love riding this bike I bought this a little over a month ago and have loved riding it from day one. It handles excellently and accelerate smoothly. Shifting was a little choppy at first but has smoothed out since. Very happy and I get lots of compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent handling and ride quality Had my 2019 Indian Chieftain for 2 months after having a Suzuki Boulevard C109R for 9 years. I’m glad I made a excellent choice and not follow the typical crowd of buying a Harley Davidson. I’ve received so many compliments.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good motor! Second chieftain I have owned. Much prefer the 2017. The new style doesn’t block wind and has more buffer even with the windshield up. Love the power train and brakes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful bike I've had this bike for a few months now, just rolled 1250 miles and have enjoyed each mile. I sold my 2015 chief vintage for this chieftan. The ride and maneuverability is a lot better than the vintage. All the toys make the ride that much more fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Came from Harley After Riding Harleys for years I wanted a change, and Indian has really stepped up their game. Took my chieftain for a long ride across 3 states and was comfortable the entire time. Minus a small software issue with the radio not keeping presets still waiting for that update.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serious riding machine I purchased this bike in March of 2020, I have put 300 miles on it since (5/15/20). I have enjoyed every single mile immensely. This is a machine built to ride. Comfort, handling, power, speed, and it turns heads where ever it rolls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressed After 2 decades on Harleys, Im very impressed. This bike is so smooth and powerful. The only complaint is the EPA restricted stock tune. But thats not Indians fault

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best! I've only ridden about 600 miles due this hole pandemic thing, but they have been great. This is an excellent machine, I love the handling, the look, the sound system, I like it all. I have the Chieftain basic, so I'm missing the remote locking bags and TPMS (I added GPS). But still love love love this bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exceptionally smooth and powerful ride This is my first bike. I did the Basic riders course on a 250 and then jumped to thos beast. It rides and handles great even for a novice like me. It has enough power that I haven't even pushed ot yet but will get up and go as fast as you want. It sounds good, but wish the sound had a little more attitude to it.
