Features

Classic Iconic Features

  • INDIAN MOTORCYCLE® BADGING The fuel tank features distinctive monochrome Warbonnet graphics seen only on the Indian® Chief Dark Horse®.
  • WARBONNET Lighting the way as it has done since 1947 is the iconic Warbonnet. Mounted proudly atop the front fender in a blacked-out frame, this light makes it clear, “This is a genuine Indian® motorcycle.”
  • VALENCED FENDERS Stylish, elegant and functional, the iconic valenced fenders, standard since 1940, enhance the flowing styling lines of every Indian® motorcycle. They also provide protection, effectively blocking road spray and gravel kicked up by the tires.
  • BRAKE CALIPER COVERS Every Indian® motorcycle is equipped with outstanding brakes, and in keeping with our traditional styling, we choose to cover the calipers. The result is a clean, stylish, beautifully finished sheet metal - iconic Indian® motorcycle valenced fenders.
  • UNPOLISHED STYLE The 2016 Indian Chief Dark Horse maintains the legendary Indian Chief styling, while taking an unpolished and raw approach to its finish with blacked-out styling.

Comfort With Style

  • PERFORMANCE Boost the performance of your Indian® motorcycle, create more legroom on the left side of the engine, and enhance the style of the Thunder Stroke® 111 V-Twin. The “Big Sucker” intake lets the engine “inhale” more freely for a slight performance gain, and it enhances throttle response.
  • APE HANGER HANDLEBAR Elevate your style with 16" Ape Hanger Handlebars. These comfortably raise your riding position without stressing your arms. They also add style and a customized look to your bike.
  • PINNACLE ONE-UP LUGGAGE RACK Add convenient cargo carrying space quickly and easily by installing this One-Up Luggage Rack. The Luggage Rack bolts directly onto the Indian® motorcycle in place of the passenger seat and provides a convenient place to securely attach cargo.
  • STYLE Transform the appearance of your motorcycle with blacked out fender trim. The easy-to-install gloss black parts add a darker style to your ride.
  • EXHAUST Add the Stage 1 Slip-On Exhaust and enjoy a rich, throaty exhaust note that provides the perfect soundtrack for the open road. This exhaust system allows the Thunder Stroke™ 111 motorcycle engine to breath more freely and unleash additional power and crisp throttle response. Add extra style to your exhaust with a set of Fishtail Exhaust Tips

Standard Features

  • BLACKED-OUT STYLING It’s black from end to end, including the wheels, forks, handlebars, engine, bodywork – even the Warbonnet up front.
  • THUNDER STROKE® 111 The proven, powerful Thunder Stroke® 111 engine serves up 119 ft-lbs of torque, and is finished primarily in black.
  • KEYLESS IGNITION Enjoy keyless starting that’s secure and convenient. With the Indian® Chief Dark Horse® key fob in your pocket, climb on the bike, push a button and ride. If you misplace the fob, use the individual security code that you pre-programmed into the ignition.
  • ABS & CRUISE CONTROL This advanced, automotive-quality braking lets you ride with confidence and helps you stop under control. Easy to set and adjust, the cruise control enhances your enjoyment during highway cruising.
  • TRUE DUAL EXHAUST The engine produces a rich exhaust note from the true dual exhaust. The exhaust was acoustically engineered to eliminate high-pitched sounds, so what you really hear is Indian Motorcycle® thunder.
