Indian Motorcycles has continued to include the Chief Bobber Dark Horse in their 2023 bike lineup. One of the key features of the Chief Bobber Dark Horse is its Thunderstroke 116 engine. This air-cooled engine is capable of producing 120 ft-lbs of torque, which means it has plenty of power for passing other vehicles on the road. The overall look of the blacked-out bobber design is a standout feature of the Chief Bobber Dark Horse.
This motorcycle has a welded steel tube frame and is loaded with blacked-out finishes from the fender to the bobbed fender. The large headlight bucket and covered forks and rear shocks give a nod to its traditional American bobber style.
The Chief Bobber Dark Horse also has a 4-inch touchscreen that is powered by Ride Command. This touchscreen looks like an analog gauge but provides turn-by-turn navigation, live weather and traffic updates, and the ability to answer and decline calls and manage music from a Bluetooth-connected device.
For comfort and ease of controlling this big bike, the Chief Bobber Dark Horse has a low solo seat that gives the rider a commanding feel, while the forward pegs and mini ape bars put the feet forward. The motorcycle also comes with keyless ignition, a USB charging port, cruise control, ABS, LED lighting, and Pirelli Night Dragon tires. Indian Motorcycles has something for most everyone and if this style doesn’t suit you, there’s something to be found in one of the many Indian models.

Loaded with attitude and blacked-out finishes from fender to bobbed fender. A welded steel tube frame, large headlight bucket with nallece, and covered forks and rear shocks give a nod to traditional bobber style.
The 4 in touchscreen maintains a classic aesthetic by disguising itself as an analog gauge. Use it as a speedo and a tach, but it also provides turn-by-turn navigation (with live weather and traffic), controls ride modes, lets you answer and decline calls, and manages your music from any Bluetooth-connected device.
