A new model from the Chief range that will be part of the 2023 Indian lineup will be The Chief Bobber. As with the other models of the Chief line-up, this one is built on top of the base Chief model. And, like many other models from the Indian Motorcycles lineup it comes with the classic Bobber version. As it follows an obvious pattern it’s easy to think it’s a Chief just with the handlebars and seat changed however there’s much more to it than that.
