Indian Motorcycle Chief Dark Horse Motorbike

When it comes to classy motorbikes, there are few workshops that spring more instantly to mind than that of Indian Motorcycle. The reason they are so highly regarded is because of extraordinary releases like this Chief Dark Horse Motorbike which is one of the best-looking and top-performing steeds we’ve seen in a while here at Coolector HQ. This beautiful machine is a step up in both power and menace and will deliver a performance on the open road which is beyond compare.

With prices starting at a thoroughly reasonable $16,999, the Indian Motorcycle Chief Dark Horse Motorbike is billed as the ideal blend of old and new. It boasts a timeless design supplemented with contemporary technology and performance, with no compromises. It keeps its classic compact stance, understated steel frame, and 64-inch wheelbase. With the Chief’s unerring design, dedication to Indian Motorcycle’s legendary past, and unobtrusive modern technology, the only people it will disappoint are the ones who hoped to keep it in their rearview.


Ride In Style


Timeless design, legendary past, and unobtrusive modern technology – what’s not to like about the new Chief Dark Horse from Indian Motorcycle? The air-cooled Thunderstroke 116 delivers a mighty impressive 120 ft-lbs of raw torque for passing power in all 6 gears, something which will give you the power to leave everything – and everyone – in your wake.

The Chief Dark Horse Motorbike from Indian Motorcycle (from $16,999) has such a stealthy and cool aesthetic that it will turn heads on every corner with simple, impactful design which showcases its bobbed fenders, exposed rear shocks and a steel welded tube frame. It’s an invitation to make it your own and one of the coolest bikes to have emerged from the Indian Motorcycle production line in our opinion here at The Coolector.

One of the stand out features of the new Chief Dark Horse Motorbike is the 4″ touchscreen which manages to keep a classic aesthetic by disguising itself as an analogue gauge. Use it as a speedo and a tach, but it also delivers turn-by-turn navigation (with live weather and traffic to boot), controls ride modes, lets you answer and decline calls, and manage your music from any Bluetooth®-connected device. A tech lover’s dream.


Back to Black


As the name suggests, the colour black features heavily in the design aesthetic of the Chief Dark Horse Motorbike. It is dark by design with premium gloss-black finishes from fender to fender and courtesy of the low seat height, a solo saddle, and mid-mount footpegs that keep your feet underneath you, the Chief gives every rider complete control.

With prices starting at $16,999, the Indian Motorcycle Chief Dark Horse Motorbike is a great investment for anyone looking to head out on the open road in search of adventure in the next 12 months and beyond. It boasts the classic, old-school look and feel that Indian are synonymous with but introduces flourishes of technology which really help to set it apart from the competition.
