The wind blows, the thunder rumbles with more room in the pistons for 2020. A few mm more for the bore of the pistons allow the twin to inflate to 1890 cm3. Capped by new cylinder heads, motivated by a stronger compression ratio, the Tunderstroke 116 gains almost 2 mkg of torque, posting a maximum of 17.1 mkg. Enough to tackle Milwaukee’s best enemy while preparing for standards on approach.
The Chieftain likes to evolve. 2019 had already done a lot of work: revised fairing, improved sound system, multi-character engine. These optimizations having been widely seen with the standard Chieftain, let’s see what this Dark Horse has in store for us..
Since its introduction, the dark Indian tendency of the Dark Horse has given a gripping depth to the machines of Springfield. A glaze between mystery and threat. This nocturnal ode crosses the shadows of other spotlights, leaving more essences on its clothing. Only at night until recently, the Dark Horse is now available in several colors.
With its redesigned fork crown, its suitcases having lost their curves and its extended saddle, the Chieftain may lose its solemnity but gain in visual dynamism. A few details changes prove that the Indian is trying to gain seduction. The spokes of the rims are machined, the Sioux head returns to the front fender, the exhaust line is covered with a ceramic coating, and enjoying it as a duo is now standard. This in the same spirit that has animated it since its beginnings.
The Dark Horse spirit is not for laughing, fooling around or taking rebellions lightly Brute. Powerful. Authentic. Dark. Here is the Indian Chieftain Dark Horse, a pure Bagger "blackout" which offers riders the ease of customizing it and all the driving fun and performance of Indian. A bagger with inherent charisma, powered by a black version of its engine and built on the same chassis and suspension as the Chieftain. The Dark Horse is fitted as standard with a tinted electric windshield, lockable hard saddlebags, ABS, electronic cruise control, tire pressure monitoring system, high-end audio system with AM / FM, Bluetooth and smartphone connection; not to mention the keyless start. The year 2017 saw the introduction at Indian of the multimedia package ‘Ride Command’, improved in 2020 by a more powerful processor and new functions; In 2018, the Dark Horse received it in series. She took the opportunity to also appropriate the 19-inch wheel and the lightened front fender..
The essential attributes of the Dark Horse family come together. You will find the fork, mirrors, handles, switches, indicators, console, engine, airbox cover, pedals, footrests and taillight surround blackened. Of course, Indian Motorcycle offers a variety of accessories to further customize future rides, including "Blackout" : air filter, high performance camshaft, as well as an audio system to be integrated into the saddlebag covers.
