Indian Motorcycle has launched its flagship motorcycle in the India. The Chieftain Dark Horse, as it is called, has been priced at Rs 31,99,175 (Ex-showroom, New Delhi) and is a visually enhanced version of the Chieftain, along with a few more features. The iconic American brand, which is owned by Polaris Industries, seems quite committed to expanding in the country.



As the name suggests, the Dark Horse carries a matt black paint job, which lends it a sinister appeal. As opposed to the standard Chieftain, the swoopy bodywork of the Dark Horse is donned by fewer chrome parts. The exterior appeal is dominated by the fat fender, a tall fairing (1388mm, to be precise) on the front, and the carriers at the back end on either side of a flowing rear fender. The massive 21-litre teardrop fuel tank, which finishes into a plump leather seat, tops off the bike’s bagger layout. Powering the bike is the Thunder Stroke 111 V-Twin engine (1811cc) with a rather modest 74PS of power and a peak torque of 139 Nm @2600 rpm.
