The curvy, valanced front fenders with the illuminated mascot and the subtle chrome trimmings on it endow the motorcycle with an unique personality.

It also gets satellite navigation, a 100 watt stereo system with Bluetooth connectivity, USB compatibilty and an AM/FM radio. The digital display on the console reads out details like average fuel consumption, gear position indicator, range, tyre pressure, engine oil temperature, odometer, trip meter, audio settings, ambient temperature, etc. At 2571mm, the Indian Chieftain Dark Horse is a massive bike and the bike weighs 377kg! And, to propel the bulk there’s a 1811cc, Thunder Stroke V-Twin engine delivering 74PS of power and a massive 139Nm of peak torque at a mere 2600rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Talking about mileage, the Chieftain Dark Horse returned 15.30kmpl on the highway and 13.54kmpl in the city. With its 20.8 litre tank, the bike has a range of close to 300km on a full tank.

Braking is done by dual rotors of 300mm diameter with 4 piston caliper up front and a single disc with 2 piston calipers out back while ABS is standard. The Indian Chieftain Dark Horse is the most customisable motorcycle in the portfolio of the American bikemaker and it rivals the Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special and the Moto-Guzzi MGX-21.
