The Indian Motorcycle Chieftain Dark Horse stands as a testament to premium craftsmanship and showcases American excellence. Built for riders who want class-leading technology with superior styling, its standard features include the Ride Command system with Apple CarPlay integration, selectable ride modes, rear cylinder deactivation, Metzeler Cruisetec tires, ABS, cruise control, highway bars, remote-locking saddlebags, tire pressure monitoring, and full LED lighting.

At its heart, the Chieftain Dark Horse packs the formidable Thunderstroke engine with a substantial 171 Nm of torque, engineered to assert its dominance on the road. Saddlebags offer ample storage space for riding gear and cargo, while wind protection, comfortable ergonomics, floorboards, two-up seat, and an LED headlight with enhanced reach and spread of light ensure these models excel as ultimate long-distance touring machines.

As with all Thunderstroke and PowerPlus models, the Chieftain lineup benefits from a clutch that provides an improved feel and enhanced forgiveness. This innovative slipper clutch minimizes engine drag, resulting in smoother downshifts and a more comfortable ride, while also enhancing traction control when navigating challenging road conditions. Additionally, the expanded friction zone and reduced lever effort help alleviate clutch fatigue, proving especially advantageous in urban settings and during congested traffic.
