2016 Indian Chief Dark Horse Preview

The name states it all, the 2016 Indian Chief Dark Horse comes in what Indian Motorcycle calls Thunder Black Smoke and has an MSRP of $16,999 US.

Darker. Bolder. Badass. There’s no mistaking the Chief Dark Horse. Every square inch of this unpolished, blacked-out machine is designed to make an uncompromising statement. It’s the quickest Chief ever built, forged with one thing in mind—brooding performance and a slightly sinister attitude. Coming with a blacked-out version of the Thunder Stroke 111 V-Twin engine, the bold visuals are backed up with high-resolution Anti-Lock Brakes and standard electronic cruise control.

Accessories include even more black, such as exhaust systems, highway bars, and a passenger seat and pegs, as well as more touring friendly items such as leather saddlebags and a backrest/cargo rack.
