Indian Motorcycle Takes Wrap Off The 2016 Indian Chief Dark Horse

The Indian Chief Dark Horse is a cruiser built upon the company’s popular Indian Chief platform. Unlike other bikes in the Indian Motorcycle line-up, it is understated with only a flash of chrome and adds a healthy dose of matte black paint to create one of the most “confident silhouettes” on the market.

Unlike other bikes in the Indian Motorcycle line-up, it is understated with only a flash of chrome and adds a healthy dose of matte black paint to create one of the most “confident silhouettes” on the market. By all but eliminating chrome from the motorcycle and swapping to cast wheels, the Dark Horse projects an aggressive look, and is also the lightest and quickest model in the Chief family.

Blacked-out from end to end, the Indian Chief Dark Horse does not lack features. Powered by the highly rated Thunder Stroke 111 engine and wrapped in the same chassis and suspension of the Indian Chief Classic, the Dark Horse also maintains ABS, a remote key fob for keyless ignition, electronic cruise control, and features a two-year unlimited mileage factory warranty.

Built to be an aggressive solo ride, the Dark Horse loses the oil cooler, analogue fuel gauge and driving lights of Chief Classic. A passenger seat plus either passenger foot-pegs or floorboards are available as part of the Genuine Indian Motorcycle Accessory line-up for those who want to ride two-up.

Dark-Horse-IndianThe Indian Chief Dark Horse is an ideal candidate for those seeking to customize their rides. With 40 available accessories rolling out during the spring and early summer, riders can add components to black-out their ride even more. Items such as ape hanger handlebars, accessory air cleaners, fender struts, slip-on exhaust with black heat shields and exhaust tips, and black fender trim help create the fully blacked-out look.

“The Indian Chief Dark Horse is unlike anything else currently available from Indian Motorcycle,” said Indian Motorcycle Sr. Product Manager, Ben Lindaman. “While it shares the best traits with other models in the Chief platform, its signature matte black paint and minimalist profile give it an attitude unlike any other Indian motorcycle. We’re excited to unveil this new bike at an aggressive price point for a full-size cruiser.”
