Chieftain in the Netherlands for the first time

Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, is proud to be displaying its full line-up during the Bigtwin Bikeshow held at Expo Houten. And for the very first time in the Netherlands, show goers will be able to see the all-new FTR 1200, FTR 1200 S and the redesigned Chieftain as they join the rest of the range on display.

“We are very happy to be returning to the Bigtwin Bikeshow and look forward to welcoming visitors at our new display booth,” says Melanie Dubois, Marketing Specialist for Indian Motorcycle EMEA. “It is also very exciting for us to give them their first up-close look at the new FTR 1200 and redesigned Chieftain.”

Inspired by the championship-winning FTR750 race bike, the all-new FTR 1200 sets a new standard in American motorcycling and has been widely praised since its unveiling earlier this month. The flat tracker for the street is powered by a 1203 cc V-twin engine with plenty of low-end torque. Combined with the sporty riding position, and agile handling the FTR 1200 gives the rider command of any road. The FTR 1200 S offers even more technology, agility, and precision including a 4.3″ Ride Command Touchscreen and fully adjustable front and rear suspension with preload, compression, and rebound inputs. The FTR 1200S also features lean-angle sensitive stability control, ABS, traction control, and wheelie mitigation control for improved confidence and control. In addition, three selectable Ride Modes provide unique throttle responses and traction control intervention levels.

The 2019 Indian Chieftain combines sharper lines and harder edges with the award-winning Thunder Stroke 111 V-Twin powerplant for an aggressive look and superior ride. The new body style, indicative of the bike’s impressive performance capabilities, is joined by a 19″ front wheel plus amenities like the industry-leading Ride Command touchscreen display and a premium 100-watt audio system. In addition to the styling and design enhancements, the 2019 Chieftain lineup features new ride-enhancing technology with three selectable Ride Modes and Rear Cylinder Deactivation for customisable performance and enhanced comfort.

The Bigtwin Bikeshow runs from Friday 2nd November until Sunday 4th November. For more information about the show please visit
