Walk Around Video of the New 2016 Indian Chieftain Dark Horse

Black Will Always be Cool

Indian Motorcycle released the new Indian Chieftain Dark Horse, an aggressively cool version of the company’s first-ever faired bagger, the Indian Chieftain.

The Chieftain gained a lot of praise when it was released a few years back, and we’re pretty much going to guarantee Indian’s blacked-out bagger will be a hot ticket item for consumers this summer and beyond.

The Chieftain Dark Horse offers a ton of matte black with just a smidge of chrome in the right places, and a wealth of features to roll as one of the most badass American-made V-Twin bikes on the market. The Chieftain Dark Horse conveys an aggressive attitude that demands attention for all the right reasons. It doesn’t care how dirty it gets. It was made for one purpose: riding.

Powered by a blacked-out Thunder Stroke 111 engine and built upon the same chassis and suspension as the Indian Chieftain, the new Chieftain Dark Horse comes from the factory outfitted with a solo seat and short, tinted power windscreen, yet maintains its spacious power-locking hard bags, ABS, electronic cruise control, tire pressure monitoring system, premium stereo with AM/FM Bluetooth and smartphone compatible input, and remote key fob with keyless ignition.

To amplify the Dark Horse family attributes, not only are the fenders, fairing, fuel tank and bags blacked out, the iconic Indian Motorcycle headdress, forks, mirrors, handlebars and switch cubes, turn signals, tank console, engine and airbox cover, lower controls, floorboards and taillight housing are also blacked out.

Of course, Indian Motorcycle also offers a large selection of authentic factory accessories to further individualize your already stealthy ride, including new Blackout series accessory air cleaners, performance cams and slip-on exhausts, as well as pumping up the stereo with 100-watt saddlebag lid speakers.

“The Indian Chieftain Dark Horse’s blacked-out styling and powerful Thunder Stroke 111 engine will elevate our rider to the top of the pack,” says Indian Motorcycle Marketing Director Reid Wilson. “Starting with the award-winning Chieftain platform, the Dark Horse series signature matte black paint and raw attitude is an open canvas for customization that makes it the perfect bike for riders who are ready to ‘Be Legendary.’”

The Indian Chieftain Dark Horse comes with a two-year unlimited mileage factory warranty and is available in dealerships now starting at $21,999.
