2022 Chief Black Metallic is rated out of 5 by 41.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Debatinggoing2harley from Great bike, terrible support Nine months to get bike, still fighting a year later to get the right parts. Over all happy with the ride of the bike, but that's it. It showed up in the winter with chrome pipes with the promise of being made right with black incoming. I've been fighting ever since to get them, now after a year still no luck. I can't seem to even get a phone call back from customer service. The bike no has 5000 km on it, sitting at the dealer waiting to fix an oil leak between the motor casing, as well as a recall on fuel pump. Wouldn't recommend indian to anyone at this point, its a shame because I really like the bike overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bro Shovel from 2022 chief standard ABS I really like this bike. I have two other Chief's (Springfield Vintage and Dark Horse Vintage) and now the 2022 Chief. All are excellent bikes but each one is a little different from the other. The 2022 is a great bike and is a great foundation for customization and performance upgrades

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steady Freddie from Great Test Ride Test rode a Chief yesterday and was impressed. Handles great, comfortable suspension and seat, plenty of power for a lighter bike, and it just feels good! The only complaint I might have is the 4 gallon fuel tank. I would love to see a 5 gallon tank instead, but that's just me. With its existing tank, it would be more challenging to tour out west where gas stations can be over 170 miles apart on certain 2-lane roads! Choice of accessories is adequate but pricy. But overall, a very fine, well-engineered motorcycle that should many years of enjoyment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JohnT336 from Well engineered Fantastic bike, been riding it everyday and just clocked 2k miles today and it has been amazing. It is incredibly stable and smooth at highway speeds and maneuverable at low speeds with plenty of power on tap The fit, finish and paint are okay, about what you would expect from a production bike but not bad. Only flaw I’ve had is the fuel pump doesn’t charge completely every once in a while and won’t start, but after priming a second time it starts. Hoping to get another 98,000 miles on mine before my next bike and given the quality of my Indian I’m sure that’s not a difficult goal to achieve. All in all very satisfied

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike4463 from Smooth I picked up my new bike last Friday and put 300 miles on it between Friday and Saturday. I traded in my 2015 Vintage, which I liked, but this is a whole different experience. The Chieftain is so much smoother and more powerful. No engine mechanical noises, just wind in front of you and exhaust behind.
