Chieftain Dark Horse

The latest addition to the Dark Horse family, this badass bagger is powered by the legendary Thunder Stroke 111 V-Twin. But what really sets this bike apart are its exclusive features, like a blacked-out fairing, front forks and, of course, that unmistakable Dark Horse fuel tank. It all adds up to a presence that refuses to be ignored. Be legendary.
