About Chief Dark Horse

Indian Chief Dark Horse is a cruiser bike available in 1 variant in india. Its price starts from ₹20,37,523 (ex-showroom). With both rear and front disk brakes, Indian Chief Dark Horse also has an anti-locking braking system. This 357 kg bike is available in 1 colour.

The Chief Dark Horse is the latest addition to the Indian Motorcycles line-up in the country. Based on the Chief platform, the Dark Horse is the blacked-out version of the Chief Classic. Unlike the rest of the Chief family, the Dark Horse loses out on the chrome and that makes this bike look beautiful.

The tank design of the Dark Horse is quite unique and the distinctive monochrome Warbonnet graphics is seen only on the Indian Chief Dark Horse. Just like the rest of the Chief range, the Dark Horse features the iconic warbonnet on the front fender in the blacked-out frame. While the Dark Horse looks like a perfect example of classic era, it also features some of  the latest gadgets like keyless ignition, anti-lock braking system) and cruise control. The dual exhaust system looks good and cancels out high-pitched sounds to give out a thundering rumble.

The Chief Dark Horse is built around the same Indian Chief platform and is powered by the traditional 111cc or 1811cc ‘Thunder-Stroke’ engine. The air-cooled 49-degree V-twin engine is rated at 139Nm of torque and comes mated to a six-speed transmission.

The Indian Dark Horse is sold in India as a completely built-up (CBU) unit and is available at the Gurgaon and the Bengaluru showroom.

BikeWale's Take

The Chief Dark Horse has all the qualities one would expect from an Indian motorcycle. This includes an engine with a jaw-dropping amount of torque, comfortable ergonomics for long distance and thumping exhaust note.
