Images of the Indian Chief Dark Horse are leaked online, just days before its official unveiling in Chicago. This motorcycle is based on the Indian Chief, a motorcycle currently on sale in India. The Indian Chief Dark Horse has a single saddle and blacked out panels and wheels. The disc brake up front, strips on the engine, long silencer and a stripe curving off the rear fender are the only chromed parts standing out from the completely blacked out bike. The Dark Horse is expected to be powered by the same engine that powers majority of the Indian motorcycles, a 1,811cc, four-stroke, V-twin and air-cooled engine, developing 14.16kgm of torque at 2,600rpm. Suspension duties are carried out by telescopic front forks, and an adjustable, pneumatic single shock does duty at rear. Braking is carried out by ABS-equipped disc brakes up front and a single disc brake at rear.
There is no word yet whether Indian will bring this motorcycle here in India, but now with the recent Roadmaster being launched, we expect Indian to introduce this model here too soon.
