The limited-edition, top-spec Chieftain Elite is now on sale in India at Rs 38 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Only 350 units will be made worldwide and features a bespoke colour scheme. The bike also gets a premium audio system, custom seats and more. Its unique Black Hills Silver colour scheme features marble accenting in the paint, and no Chieftain Elites look identical.
The big cruiser also gets Indian’s Ride Command infotainment system, which comes with Bluetooth, navigation and a 200W audio system (compared to the standard Chieftain’s 100W system). The bike is also fitted with leather seats with custom stitching and shiny aluminium floorboards.
The bike uses the company’s Thunder Stroke 111 V-twin engine that makes 151Nm here. The 2018 Chieftain Elite weighs a colossal 388kg. Pankaj Dubey, managing director and country head, Polaris India, said “The Indian Chieftain Elite is a limited-edition product for the riders who demand the best of the best. This bike was born to turn heads and provide an unmatched riding experience with all of the premium amenities with an outstanding hand-paint job using high-flake Black Hills Silver.”
