Indian unveils Dark Horse

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

Indian Motorcycle has unveiled its first 2016 model, the Indian Chief Dark Horse.

Compared to its stablemates, the Dark Horse has only a hint of chrome. It retains the Thunder Stroke 111 engine, but gets the blacked out treatment. It also gets cast rims instead of spoked rollers. 

“The Indian Chief Dark Horse is unlike anything else currently available from Indian Motorcycle,” said Ben Lindaman, senior product manager at Indian. “While it shares the best traits with other models in the Chief platform, its signature matte black paint and minimalist profile give it an attitude unlike any other Indian motorcycle.”

The Dark Horse should reach dealerships this spring.
