Indian Motorcycle, America’s First Motorcycle Company, has launched the all-new 2023 Sport Chief, its most aggressive version of the iconic Indian Chief. This new 2023 model raises the bar for American V-Twin performance cruisers with high-quality, performance-oriented components and classic American style. The Sport Chief offers riders premium componentry from top brands, such as KYB inverted front forks, dual-disc, four-piston, semi-floating caliper, radial-mounted Brembo brakes, and piggyback rear FOX shocks. These elements allow for superior handling, ride performance, and increased lean angle, making the Sport Chief perfect for more aggressive and confident riding.
“In 2021, we celebrated the 100-year anniversary of Indian Chief with a lineup that pays homage to the glory days of American motorcycling,” said Ola Stenegärd, Director, Industrial Design for Indian Motorcycle. “With Sport Chief, we wanted to maintain the same care-free attitude and American muscle but elevate it even further with componentry that not only delivers a style and attitude that exudes performance but raises the bar entirely for performance cruisers.”
The 2023 Sport Chief will be available in Black Smoke, Ruby Smoke, Stealth Gray, and Spirit Blue Smoke, starting at $18,999. The bike will ship to Indian Motorcycle dealers throughout the U.S. and Canada in March 2023.
