Naturally, there’s a Dark Horse version of the new Chief Bobber as part of the 2021 Indian line-up. The Dark Horse variant from Indian Motorcycle takes the already impressive Chief Bobber and gives it a blacked-out aesthetic, a larger engine, and a number of top-quality components to transform it into a more premium ride. As far as American motorcycles go, the Chief Bobber Dark Horse is one of the best.
It draws power from Indian’s larger Thunderstroke 116 engine. This is a 1,890 cc V-twin engine that produces 120 lb-ft of torque and approximately 79 horsepower. It’s a big unit but it delivers power in a nice even spread across the range, making it a surprisingly smooth ride. That power is governed by selectable ride modes that can be controlled by Indian’s new sophisticated 4-inch round Ride Command unit.
Aside from the classic bobber styling and blacked-out aesthetic, the 2022 Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse also boasts a nice low seat, front sets, mini ape hanger bars, full LED lighting, keyless ignition, USB charging, cruise control, and Pirelli Night Dragon rubber.
The Chief Bobber Dark Horse is available in more than just a blacked-out aesthetic. Buyers can choose from Black Smoke, Titanium Smoke, or Sagebrush Smoke color options.
The 2022 Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse starts from $18,999 USD / $19,999 CAD.

2022 Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse Features
The air-cooled Thunderstroke 116 produces 120 ft-lbs of raw torque for passing power in all 6 gears. It’ll catch eyes on the street and grab your soul from the saddle.
BLACKED-OUT BOBBER DESIGN
Loaded with attitude and blacked-out finishes from fender to bobbed fender. A welded steel tube frame, large headlight bucket with nallece, and covered forks and rear shocks give a nod to traditional bobber style.
TOUCHSCREEN WITH RIDE COMMAND
The 4 in touchscreen maintains a classic aesthetic by disguising itself as an analog gauge. Use it as a speedo and a tach, but it also provides turn-by-turn navigation (with live weather and traffic), controls ride modes, lets you answer and decline calls, and manages your music from any Bluetooth-connected device.
BLACK, AND MORE BLACK
Dark by design with premium gloss-black finishes from fender to fender.
OWN THE ROAD
A low solo seat gives you a commanding feel, while the forward pegs and mini ape bars put your feet forward and your fists in the wind.
Rooted in history, designed for the present. The iconic Indian Motorcycle headdress logo is a celebration of the original Chief.
