Indian Motorcycle operated rather moderately in India during the BS6 era. At the end of last year, the company revealed a price list of bikes from the Scout, Vintage, Springfield, Chieftain and Roadmaster families. More recently, the brand announced the opening of bookings for the Chief 2022 line-up and also gave us a starting price for this upcoming model line-up. We can now confirm that these Chief models are already on their way to India and will arrive in August. They will also be joined by the returning FTR range.
List of Indian chiefs 2022
Three of the six models in the 2022 Indian Chief global lineup are slated for India, and it’s no coincidence that all three models are powered by the larger ThunderStroke 116 engine. the Vintage, Springfield, Chieftain and Roadmaster models, which are already on sale in India.
The three models are the Chief Dark Horse, Chief Bobber Dark Horse and Super Chief Limited, and Indian has announced that prices will start from Rs 20.75 lakh. This will help close the massive price gap between the Scout Bobber Twenty Rs 16.20 lakh and the Vintage lakh Rs 25.80 in India’s current range for India.
The Indian FTR range is making a comeback
The Indian FTR range represents a whole different flavor of motorcycle – the most dynamic models in the Indian range. Brembo brakes, Metzeler Sportec M9 RR tires and fully adjustable Sachs suspension aren’t specs you would usually associate with an Indian, but that’s exactly what the FTR packs. Metzeler tires are possible because for 2021 the FTR has dropped its 19in / 18in wheel combo for a more conventional 17in pair (except the Rally variant which continues with the older wheel sizes).
Power comes from a bored version of the Scout’s V-twin, which now displaces 1203cc and produces 123bhp and 120Nm. When it was here, in the BS4 era, we had the ‘S’ variant. of the FTR, which features a 4.3-inch TFT touchscreen, three drive modes, IMU-based electronic aids, and an Akrapovic exhaust system as standard. This is the model we expect to receive in August, priced at around Rs 17 lakh. It may also be accompanied by the standard FTR which could get a more affordable price of around Rs 15 lakh.
