Chief Dark Horse

With its matte-black finish and blacked-out details, there’s no ignoring the Chief Dark Horse. Every square inch was designed to not just make a statement—but leave a permanent mark. And thanks to the distinctive Thunder Stroke 111 V-Twin, all it takes to announce your arrival is an authoritative twist of the throttle. Be legendary.
