Polaris Industries acquired the Indian brand just five years after the marques 2006 reincarnation in Kings Mountain, NC. In 2011 Polaris moved the Indian line to its Spirit Lake, IA production facility. Since then, the writing’s been on the wall for Indian’s current model lineup. At the International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, CA over the weekend, Indian announced that 2013 will be the swan song for their King’s Mountain era Indian Chief. To commemorate this latest milestone in the history of America’s oldest motorcycle brand, a limited number of Indian Chief Vintage Final Editions will be produced.

The paint scheme for these generation ending editions is based on the Indian Chief that appeared at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York and features a combination of Indian Red, Thunder Black, and Gold Pinstripe. The seat and saddlebags are in black leather. The Final Edition also includes driving lamps, windshield, chrome grab rail, engine guards, and chrome fender tips. Mechanically, the model remains unchanged with its 105 ci PowerPlus engine and six-speed gearbox. The 2013 Indian Chief Vintage Final Edition will see an extremely limited production run, and each example will feature a numbered emblem on the frame. MSRP is $37,599.
