Indian Motorcycles has made a comeback, America's first motorcycle company which built bikes from 1901 to 1953 - when it went bankrupt, is now in South Africa.

Three models are available to order in the form of the Indian Chief Classic cruiser, Indian Chief Vintage and Indian Chieftain.

The new Indian Chief Vintage is a soft bagger that takes iconic Indian Motorcycle styling to a whole new level with handcrafted detail and a signature heritage aesthetic, says the bikemaker.

Indian Motorcycles said: "It offers top-quality quick release soft-sided leather bags, leather fringe, chrome fender tips, vintage chrome badging on the front fender and a quick-release windshield for easy installation or removal."

It includes the same premium standard features as the Indian Chief Classic, and sports the same iconic design elements like valanced fenders, laced wheels, whitewall tyres, tank-mounted instrument cluster and lots of chrome bits.

It is also powered by the new Thunder Stroke 111 engine.
