Indian Chieftain Dark Horse®

Back

New Look Same Soul

The 2017 Indian® Chieftain is in touch with its past, but far ahead of its time. It’s the first Indian Motorcycle® ever with a hard fairing, hard saddlebags and unprecedented new comfort and convenience features. It’s like no Indian Motorcycle® ever seen before, yet its style makes clear it has the DNA of a legendary Indian Motorcycle®.

Thunder Stroke 111
The Thunder Stroke 111 engine delivers an incredible 138.9 Nm (102.4 ft-lbs) of torque and features styling that pays tribute to legendary Indian Motorcycle® engines of the past.

Hard Saddlebags
Spacious hard saddlebags are mounted on quick-release anchors and feature remote electronic locks you control with a console mounted button - or a convenient key fob.

Windshield
Raise and lower the power-adjustable windscreen with the push of a button to customise airflow and protection.

High-Output Audio
The fairing houses an audio system that delivers clean, quality sound from dual high-output speakers. The aerodynamic fairing blocks wind to allow you to enjoy your highway playlist without interference.

Driving Lights
LED driving lights provide both style and protection down any road you choose to take.
 
Audio Bluetooth
The integrated Bluetooth® smart phone connection makes it easy to run music stored in the phone through the Indian® Chieftain audio system. Playlist info is displayed on the multi-function display screen, and switches near the handgrip make it easy to control the audio. Bluetooth® is a registered trademark of Bluetooth Sig, Inc.
 
Keyless Ignition
Enjoy convenient and secure keyless starting. With the Indian® Chieftain key fob in your pocket, climb on the bike, push a button and ride. If you misplace the fob, use the individual security code that you pre-programmed into the ignition.
 
True Dual Exhaust
The engine produces a rich exhaust note from the true dual exhaust. The exhaust was acoustically engineered to eliminate high-pitched sounds, so what you really hear is Indian Motorcycle® thunder.
