The new cruisers were unveiled in August this year.

In August this year, Indian unveiled their new range of 2014 cruisers, which are the models that would come to India. The three cruisers, Indian Chief Classic, Indian Chief Vintage and Indian Chieftain are all powered by an all-new Thunder Stroke 111 engine and come with a 6-speed transmission. The engine is aptly named as it displaces 111 cubic inches (1,819 cc) and produces 161.6 Nm of peak torque at 3,000 rpm.

Indian will most likely import their motorcycles into India via the CBU (Completely Built up Unit) route in the launch stage. Ever since Polaris took over the company in 2011, production of these motorcycles take place at Spirit Lake, Iowa.
