Indian Motorcycle seems aggressive with its product and service expansion plans for the Indian two wheeler market. The company has recently introduced the powerful and expensive Roadmaster and has now introduced the Chief Dark Horse in the market. It is the sixth motorcycle since it re-entered into our market after Polaris acquired the company in 2011.
The Indian Chief Dark Horse gets all blacked out theme, which distinguishes it from other Chief’s. The new all-black exterior theme with chrome inserts further enhances the overall appeal of this retro motorcycle. The bike is completely covered in black shade, which is complemented by chrome strops on the rear and front fenders, and chrome treatment to exhausts and levers. The V-twin engine also gets the blacked-out theme. The alloy wheels, tyres, front forks, headlamp area and other places are covered in black.
The Indian Chief Dark Horse misses out on few features like oil cooler, analogue fuel gauges and additional twin lights positioned on the either side of main headlamps. It is propelled by the same 1811cc, Thunderstroke motor that is good for 139Nm of torque. The power is transferred to the belt driven rear wheels by a six-speed gearbox.
It is a single seater retro motorcycle, which is built on the Chief Classic chassis. Feature list include ABS, electronic cruise control, keyless ignition, etc. The Dark Horse will be imported to India as Completely Built Unit (CBU) and is priced at Rs. 22.99 lakh.
