2019 Indian Chieftain Limited Thunder Black Pearl is rated out of 5 by 172.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rick1959 from Live to Ride Bought my 2017 Chieftain Limited in June of the same year. Gotta say, I have been riding most of my life and have never slung my leg over a finer machine. We took it through the challenge of the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Tail of the Dragon and the bike performed like a real athlete. GPS, power windshield, AM/FM/Weather/Bluetooth, cruise control, power to spare, this bike has it ALL. Love it so much we are praying to be picking up my wife's Chief Vintage this afternoon. Indian Motorcycle, I want to thank you for coming a back with vengeance. My only regret was not getting the Stage 2 installed at purchase. Planning on getting that done in the spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GT Steele from At Long Last It took many years and 19 motorcycles to finally get the bike I have dreamed of (but didn't know I wanted). I purchased my Chieftain Limited from Hernley's Polaris in Elizabethtown, PA a little more than a month ago and I have to say that I finally have found a bike that fits all my needs. It's beautiful to look at, it sounds great stock, it's insanely comfortable, has plenty of power, handles and rides like a dream, and it's a home-run with my wife in terms of comfort. My only regret is that I didn't discover cruiser/bagger bikes until now. Initially, I thought I wanted a Street Glide and a good friend said I should try this before I decided. I owe him a lot because I never looked back. Here's to great decisions!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mikefowler55 from This is a fantastic bike! Bought my 2018 Indian Chieftain Limited back in April from Indian of Savannah GA. Amazing dealer by the way! I love this bike- traded a HD Road King Classic in on it and couldn't be happier. The rear shock is absolutely got to be my favorite feature- the ride is amazing for sure. The Ride Command system is amazing- speakers rock! I've personalized mine a little as we all do and love this machine more and more every time I ride it. The adjustable windshield is an amazing feature as well but the 111 motor is smooth and will absolutely fly! Go get one- you'll be glad you did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spudman from Great bike I love the ride before you buy event that Indian put on today. Help me solidify what I really want. This particular Chieftain had many upgrades stage one and two kit billet floorboards lowered an inch and a half custom windshield 14 inch ape hanger handlebars. And many other upgrades beautiful brilliant blue paint job. This bike has so much power you really had to be on your toes when giving it throttle. Indian definitely puts out an amazing bike. This is the particular model I had my heart set on, but I also test road the road master that bike blew me away. That is the direction I am going is buying a roadmaster. Thanks again Indian !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Couldn't be happier! I live overseas and have been renting Street Glides about 8 days a year for the past five years. I rented the Chieftain two weeks ago and then bought my own three days later. This bike is amazing! Handles like a smaller, more nimble bike. The torque is fantastic. My only grips are the brake peg and kickstand. I upgraded both. This is Indian all the way. For anyone thinking this is a Street Glide "knock off", go ride one. The sound, the feel, the ride. Pure pleasure. And oh yeah...finding neutral is a total breeze! This is an incredible piece of design and workmanship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jlaval from 2018 Limited with a 116 Big Bore Original was going to purchase a HD Street Glide Special before I took a ride on a Limited during an Indian DEMO day. After the ride it was a know brainier on which one I was buying. Planned on the Chieftain Dark Horse, but after seeing the Thunder Black Pearl Limited with a dealer installed 116 Big Bore sitting on the showroom floor. It was all she wrote. Love the sound and power of this beast!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ron Wray from Best motorcycle I have ever owned I live by the Kern River it has a lot of curves in yet this bike is made for them curves it handles very very well I've also road it from New Mexico to Bakersfield California and one day it was 900 miles this bike is so comfortable when I got home I took a shower and went bowling it was about 5:30 I would sell this to anybody if it were a piece of ice I would sell it to an Eskimos thanks Indian for spending time with this bike and making it quality and not quantity Ron. I had bought this little 1941 Panhead at a garage sale it was black and did not work at home I took it apart restored it repainted it for my granddaughter she is 4 years old, she told me she wanted one just like grandpa thanks Lord for bringing the bike in the my path
