Chief Vintage

 

The Chief Vintage is a nod to simpler times. Just you and the road. But there's more to it than that. Its timeless style, expressed through genuine leather saddlebags and whitewall tyres, is is backed by modern amenities including keyless ignition, cruise control and a quick release windshield for around-town cruising. And it's all powered by a chromed-out Thunder Stroke 111 V-Twin engine. What are you waiting for?
