Indian Motorcycle reveals the NEW 2016 Chief Dark Horse.


Indian made no secret that the new Dark Horse would be built on the same platform as the rest of the air-cooled big-bore beasts. Still, the silhouette of the new machine introduces indeed a different vibe. The 2016 Chief Dark Horse drops almost all the shiny chrome and bling, and bringing forth black engine and engine case paint, black rims and a lighter build.

The 2016 Dark Horse was designed primarily as a solo machine, but you can add room for a passenger by installing a rear seat and pegs. The engine is the same Thunder Stroke 111 unit, the 1,811cc v-twin cylinders produce just over 73 hp at 4,500 rpm.
The new Indian sports true dual exhaust, ABS, cruise control, top-notch fuel injection, a comprehensive single-gauge dash loaded with telltale light indicators, an analog speedo and a LCD screen.
Dark Horse will reach the dealerships in spring 2015, and in Europe it will be sold with a neat 5-year warranty. If you’re eyeing a demo ride, start making plans for the annual Daytona Bike Week from March 7th – 14th, 2015, as the Dark Horse will be there.
