Indian Chieftain Dark Horse 2022

When you think of touring motorcycles…’baggers’…you may be forgiven for thinking that Harley-Davidson, BMW or even a Honda would be the only ways to go. However Indian motorcycles are seeing quite the resurgence in the last couple of years as many motorcycle enthusiasts are looking for more perceived value, modern tech but with that classic styling too. Enter the Indian Chieftain Dark Horse for 2022.

Classic styling, fork mounted fairing with power windscreen, hard saddlebags and propelled with a Thunderstroke 116 cubic inch engine (1890cc) at 171Nm Torque

The Indian Chieftain moody Dark Horse variant will suit riders wishing a similar riding experience to the other American alternative but perhaps with a higher revving performance, improved stock suspension and generally more included in the purchase price than any of its closest rivals.
