2012 Indian Chief Dark Horse
Of the three, you could make a case that the sexiest of the lot is the Chief Dark Horse, which comes with a matte black finish, a classic painted Indian headdress logo on the tank, a two-into-one stainless steel exhaust, a color-matched, die-cast console, a matte black teardrop headlight, smoke black (matte) rims, and a tank-mounted speedometer with controls.
As far as performance goes, the Chief Dark Horse carries the same engine as its brethren: a Powerplus 105 cubic-inch air-cooled V-twin engine with closed loop sequential port fuel injection, six-speed transmission, and belt final drive. In addition, all of those also have Brembo triple-disc brakes, 5.5-gallon fuel tanks, dual 12V accessory outlets, and claimed dry weights around 750 pounds.
The Chief Dark Horse retails for $27,999 and comes with a two-year warranty. Needless to say, it’s the kind of bike that owners will have no regrets buying.
