The 2023 Roadmaster Dark Horse is one of Indian Motorcycles’ premium touring models that confidently makes a statement with its mean American style and blacked-out finishes. This beast includes the air-cooled Thunderstroke 116 V-twin engine, which delivers an impressive 126 ft-lbs of torque. The motorcycle’s infotainment system is shared with others in the 2023 Indian motorcycle lineup and is centered around a stunning 7-inch touchscreen powered by RIDE COMMAND, which offers Apple CarPlay integration, turn-by-turn navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, live traffic and weather updates, and more.
The Dark Horse boasts over 36 gallons of weatherproof cargo space, with remote-locking saddlebags, a trunk, and easy access storage in the lowers. In addition to its ample storage capacity, the motorcycle features a ClimaCommand heated/cooled seat as standard, providing enhanced rider and passenger comfort in any weather condition. The seat can be adjusted via controls on the seat or through the infotainment screen. Premium audio is delivered through high-output speakers in the fairing and trunk, offering a total of 200 watts and a dynamic equalizer that adjusts automatically for noise. Thanks to a push-button power windshield, height adjustment is just a button press away and lower fairing vents manage airflow for optimal comfort.
As expected in this big American cruiser, ride customization is available through three selectable ride modes—Tour, Standard, and Sport—tailoring the experience to each rider’s style. The motorcycle also features Rear Cylinder Deactivation, which automatically shuts off the rear cylinder when the bike is stopped, enhancing comfort in slow-moving traffic. The Roadmaster Dark Horse comes with top-of-the-line riding amenities such as LED lighting, keyless ignition, cruise control, ABS, tire pressure monitoring, and heated grips.
The 2023 Indian Roadmaster Dark Horse starts at $31,999USD/$38,899 CAD
