Indian Motorcycle Introduces Indian Chief Dark Horse

Indian Motorcycle announced the newest and edgiest member of the Indian Chief line-up and the first 2016 model - the Indian Chief Dark Horse. The Indian Chief Dark Horse is a cruiser built upon the successful and award-winning Indian Chief platform. Unlike other bikes in the Indian Motorcycle line-up, it is understated with only a flash of chrome and adds a healthy dose of matte black paint to create one of the most confident silhouettes on the market. By all but eliminating chrome from the motorcycle and swapping to cast wheels, the Dark Horse conveys an aggressive pose, and being the lightest in the series, is the quickest model in the Chief family. Striking an ideal balance of attitude and features, the 2016 Indian Chief Dark Horse delivers the style, quality and power expected from an Indian Motorcycle, and starts at just $16,999. The Dark Horse conveys a bold attitude that demands attention for all the right reasons. Blacked-out from end to end, the Dark Horse does not lack features. Powered by the highly rated Thunder Stroke® 111 engine and wrapped in the same chassis and suspension of the Indian Chief Classic, the Dark Horse also maintains ABS, a remote key fob for keyless ignition, electronic cruise control, and features a two-year unlimited mileage factory warranty. Built to be an aggressive solo ride, the Dark Horse loses the oil cooler, analogue fuel gauge and driving lights of Chief Classic. A passenger seat plus either passenger foot-pegs or floor boards are available as part of the Genuine Indian Motorcycle Accessory line-up for those who want to ride two-up. The Indian Chief Dark Horse is an ideal motorcycle for those seeking to customize their rides. With 40 available accessories rolling out during the spring and early summer, riders can add components to black-out their ride even more. Items such as ape hanger handlebars, accessory air cleaners, fender struts, slip-on exhaust with black heat shields and exhaust tips, and black fender trim help create the fully blacked-out look. The 2016 Indian Chief Dark Horse will be available in dealers starting mid-February and will be a featured demo bike at the annual Daytona Bike Week from March 7th - 14th.

Weighing in at a wet weight of 558 pounds -- lightest in its class - the 2015 Indian Scout was derived from a clean sheet design, creating a potent and precise middle-weight cruiser that carries forward the spirit of innovation that made it one of the most storied bikes of all time.

A Reimagined Engine for Power and Precision: The 2015 Indian Scout is powered by an all-new, 69 cubic inch V-twin engine that combines all the design, performance and reliability elements that made the original Scouts unbeatable and mates it with components and modern technologies. Smooth, flawless power throughout the power band featuring: Liquid-cooled design for 100 HP of pure power, along with enhanced durability and reliability; Out of respect for the legendary Scouts of the 1920s, 30s and 40s, the 2015 Scout carries forward classic engine design cues with purposeful styling that honors both form and function; and Closed loop fuel injection and drive-by-wire throttle actuation mated to a 6-speed overdrive transmission for peak torque of 72 ft./lbs. of torque at 5900 RPM. The 2015 Indian Scout is available for immediate ordering at a starting MSRP of $10,999 with expected delivery in dealerships across North American in late 2014.
