2016 Indian Chief Dark Horse

For those midnight runs through the roughest urban areas, the 2016 Indian Chief Dark Horse arrives dressed for the task at hand. With the exception of chrome exhausts and some other detailing, the Dark Horse is about matte black.

The aerodynamic headlight cowling gives the Dark Horse an even more menacing look. Powering the big cruiser is the monstrously torquey Thunder Stroke 111 motor, which has air-cooling for enhanced authenticity. A solo seat means you bond with your motorcycle and nothing else.
