Chieftain Dark Horse

Editorials Press Release

Indian Motorcycle®, America’s first motorcycle company, has launched the Indian® Chieftain Dark Horse®, a blacked-out hard bagger that allows riders to easily customize their ride and hit the highway in head-turning style.

A bagger with undeniable presence, the Chieftain Dark Horse® offers a ton of matte black, a flicker of chrome, and a wealth of features to roll as one of the most bad-ass American-made V-Twin bikes on the market. The Chieftain Dark Horse® conveys an aggressive attitude that demands attention for all the right reasons.

Powered by a blacked-out version of the celebrated Thunder Stroke® 111 engine and built upon the same highly lauded 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 just $ 21,999. For more information, visit
