  • 2016 Chieftain Dark Horse

    Indian Motorcycle Unveils The 2016 Indian Chieftain Dark Horse. Starting at $21,999
    Published by Cyril Huze May 11th, 2016 in Builders, Editorial and Events.

    A new level of darkness has arrived. Indian Motorcycle introduced the Chieftain Dark Horse, a blacked-out hard bagger that allows riders to easily customize their ride and hit the highway in head-turning style. The 2016 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.
    Chieftain Dark Horse comes with a two-year unlimited mileage factory warranty and is available in dealerships now starting at just $21,999.
    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 100-watt saddlebag lid speakers.

    Standard Features.
    Blacked Out Styling. It’s black from top to bottom, including the wheels, forks, handlebars, engine, bodywork – even the iconic headdress up front.
    Thunder Stroke 111. The proven, powerful Thunder Stroke® 111 engine serves up 119 ft-lbs of torque, and is finished primarily in black.
    Touring Amenities. With a commanding power-windscreen equipped fairing and lockable hard bags out back, you’re ready to rack up miles in style and comfort.
    Keyless Ignition. Keyless starting is secure and convenient. With the Indian® Chieftain Dark Horse® key fob in your pocket, climb on the bike, push a button and ride. If you misplace the fob, use the individual security code you pre-program into the ignition.
    ABS & Cruise Control. Advanced, automotive-quality braking lets you ride with confidence and helps you stop with great control. Easy to set and adjust, the electronic cruise control enhances your enjoyment during highway cruising.

    Custom Accessories
    Performance. Rev up enhanced performance with these blacked-out performance accessories that unleash more power, improved throttle response, and add a rich and throaty exhaust note with Stage 1 Exhaust, a Thunder Stroke® High Flow Air Cleaner, and Stage 2 Performance Cams. Install this performance package and you’ll feel like you’re riding a new bike. For ultimate style, add Fish Tail or Six Shooter exhaust tips.
    Ape Hanger Handlebars. Add custom style, a comfortable reach to the controls, and a load of attitude with the black Ape Hanger Handlebar Kit. You’ll enjoy the riding position, and on every ride you’ll cop an attitude like you own the road.
    Premium Audio With Color.
    Matched Saddlebag Lids. Treat yourself to powerful audio by installing Premium Saddlebag Audio. Combined with the Matte Black Saddlebag Audio Lids (required & sold separately), the audio in the color-matched saddlebag lids ensures you’ll hear your road trip playlists loud and clear.
    Extra Blacked Out Style. Switch to all-black Floorboards, and install black Fender Trim and Saddlebag Trim that replace stock chrome pieces. The black Front Highway Bar adds black custom style, tip-over protection, and a comfortable perch for your feet when cruising.

      Very nice, and I would not turn it down if given to me, but just not my style.
