Indian Chieftain Dark Horse Launched At Rs 31,99,175

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.

No doubt, at 2571mm, the Dark Horse is a massive bike and a size like this, when coupled to all the goodness of those fenders and panels, contributes to a hefty 362kg! And, to propel the bulk there’s a Thunder Stroke 111 V-Twin engine (1811cc) with a rather modest 74PS of power under its belt. However, as is the case with most cruiser motorcycles engines, this one too makes use of a meaty low-end torque band to haul itself around comfortably. The engine is capable of delivering its full 139Nm of torque at a mere 2600rpm.

The front end features 43mm telescopic fork with 119mm of travel, whereas the rear features single shock absorber with air adjust and 114mm of travel. Stopping duties are taken care of by dual rotors of 300mm diameter with 4 piston callipers up front and a single disc with 2 piston callipers out back with an identical diameter.
