If the Indian Chief Vintage is a Chariot of Gods, the Chief Dark Horse is definitely something that the devil would ride. The Indian Chief Dark Horse is scheduled to make a come back as the American manufacturer will unveil the 2016 model on February 13 at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in downtown Chicago. But you don’t have to wait anymore as the official images of this upcoming offering from Indian Motorcycle have already been leaked all over the internet. The company had released the teaser images of the Indian Chief Dark Horse earlier last week but these leaked official images reveal the entire product from the manufacturer.
As seen in the images, the Indian Chief Dark Horse will receive an all matte black colour scheme with a several chrome highlights over the front and rear valanced fenders, the exhaust pipe and few other places. The headlight will be a single piece unit instead of the three piece setup found on the Indian Chief series of motorcycles. The wheels on the Indian Chief Dark Horse would be alloys, painted in black, instead of the conventional spoke rims. Even the War Bonnet has been wrapped in matte-black frame.
The Indian Chief Dark Horse will receive the same Thunder Stroke 111 engine that is found on the Chief Classic, Chief Vintage, Chieftain and Roadmaster. The 1811cc V-twin Thunder Stroke 111 motor is capable of delivering 102.4lbft of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed transmission that transmits power to the rear-wheel via belt drive.
Indian Motorcycles recently made its debut in Sub Continent and currently retails the Chieftain, Chief Vintage and Chief Classic in the country. The motorcycle line up for the Indian market will be extended in 2015 with the introduction of the Scout and the Roadmaster. We expect the manufacturer to introduce the Chief Dark Horse in India as well.
