The 2021 Indian Vintage Dark Horse
The Indian Vintage Dark Horse is arguably the darkest American motorcycle on the market. It’s one of the most exciting models in the 2021 Indian line-up, featuring bucket loads of classic Indian heritage but with a contemporary blacked-out look that would make Batman proud.
The 2021 model features Indian’s flagship Thunderstroke 111 engine, a 1,811cc V-twin engine with enormous power. With 92 horsepower and 119 lb-ft of torque on tap, this cruiser is a versatile machine that’s just as home in stop-go city traffic as it is out on the open road.
Indian has equipped the Vintage Dark Horse with plenty of ride-enhancing goodies, such as a Rear Cylinder Deactivation system, selectable ride modes, cruise control, a keyless ignition, a tire pressure monitor, driving lights, and ABS as standard.
Of course, if you want to add more, Indian Motorcycles has a full catalog of extras and accessories for you to choose from, allowing you to customize your ride to your heart’s content.
For 2021, the Vintage Dark Horse is available only in Thunder Black Smoke.
The 2021 Indian Vintage Dark Horse starts at $19,499 USD / $23,499 CAD.
