Indian Motorcycle Introduces the Indian Chieftain Dark Horse

Raw and powerful, Indian’s newest bagger beckons riders to ‘Be
Legendary’ on the darker side of the street

®, America’s first motorcycle company, today introduced
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 touring bikes on the
market. By all but eliminating chrome from the motorcycle, the Dark
Horse conveys an aggressive attitude that demands attention for all the
right reasons.

Powered by the celebrated Thunder Stroke® 111 engine and built upon the
same highly lauded chassis and suspension as the Indian Chieftain, the
edgy new Chieftain Dark Horse comes from the factory outfitted with a
solo seat and short, tinted power windscreen, yet maintains its spacious
hard bags, ABS, electronic cruise control, integrated premium audio
system 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.

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 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,” said Reid Wilson, Marketing Director for Indian Motorcycle.
“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
