2020 Indian Chieftain Dark Horse
The 2020 Indian Chieftain Dark Horse is the evil brother of the base Chieftain. It’s mean, lean, and ready to rip up some highway pavement. The only engine option is a Thunder Stroke 116 with 126 lbs-ft of torque.
The Chieftain Dark Horse shares almost all the features of the base Chieftain, namely cruise control, ABS, TPMS, and Indian’s Ride Command 7 inch glove compatible infotainment system, which can link to a smartphone via bluetooth and play your music through a 100 Watt fairing-mounted speaker system. For the Dark Horse, the infotainment system also features a dynamic equalizer to balance out against wind and road noise intelligently. You also get LED lighting head to tail, and a GPS system built into Ride Command.
Unlike almost any other Dark Horse model, the Chieftain Dark Horse features three color options: Thunder Black Smoke, Ruby Red Smoke, and Titanium Grey Smoke.
