A 2021 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide®vs 2022 Indian Chieftain comparison must begin with the pulse of each design. A 2021 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® is less grandiose than a 2022 Chieftain, something that is going to set much better with those who appreciate refinement and picking and choosing your design battles. Save for more paint options, you'll find that Indian goes long on the design of the Chieftain, something that really affects its handling. It's the longer of the two bikes, something that won't sit well with those who prefer a more refined look. The Chieftain is a 98.7 inch bike, compared to a 96.5 inch look for the Street Glide®. It actually makes more of a difference than you think. The two fairings on the bike also differ, with a huge field of view obscured by the Chieftain's look. Meanwhile, the tidy Batwing fairing on the Street Glide® settles in on a delicate look that doesn't really attempt to consume the entire bike of the design. A Street Glide® is cleaner and comes with colors like River Rock Gray and Billiard Red.
The 2021 Street Glide® is serving New Port Richey of New Port Richey customers with one of the most complete safety systems ever rigged up on a bike. The design is simple and unobtrusive. Brembo brakes are linked up to REFLEX Defensive Rider Systems and given a standard ABS configuration to prevent wheel lock in tricky situations. Your braking on the Street Glide® is much smoother than the Chieftain's braking. Speaking of Defensive Rider systems, you'll find that the Street Glide®'s Reflex systems are superior to anything offered by the Chieftain. If you want to really unleash the raw power of your motorcycle, you need the confidence that Harley-Davidson®'s safety mechanics bring to your bike's structure.
The 2021 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide®vs 2022 Indian Chieftain might compete most fiercely in this area, as both bike makers have realized just how connected the world is these days. You can easily keep in touch on your Street Glide® thanks to the expertly positioned BOOM!™ Box GTS infotainment system. RIDE COMMAND handles Indian's new infotainment system on this bike. It does actually have some nice features, and we'd never claim otherwise. Despite this, Harley-Davidson®'s more responsive screen is placed so that it doesn't detract from your other important gauges. Positioning is key here, as it's a part of the design just like any other area of the bike. People who want a clean look to their touchscreen and a non-consuming position will prefer to grab the 2021 Street Glide® from Harley-Davidson® of New Port Richey.
