Features

Features

  • A STEP UP IN POWER. AND MENACE: Timeless design, legendary past, and unobtrusive modern technology.
  • THUNDERSTROKE 116: The air-cooled Thunderstroke 116 produces 120 ft-lbs of raw torque for passing power in all 6 gears, giving you the power to leave everything - and everyone - in your exhaust.
  • HEAD-TURNING DESIGN: Turn heads on every corner with simple, purposeful design showcasing bobbed fenders, exposed rear shocks and a steel welded tube frame. It's an invitation to make it your own.
  • TOUCHSCREEN WITH RIDE COMMAND: 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 manage your music from any Bluetooth®-connected device.
  • THE BEAUTY IS IN THE DETAILS: The result of fine American craftsmanship: no detail overlooked.
  • BLACK, AND MORE BLACK: Dark by design with premium gloss-black finishes from fender to fender.
  • 19 IN. MACHINED CAST WHEEL: The 19 in. machined cast front wheel with ABS adds to the menacing stance and will beg you to roll the throttle.
  • RIDE WITH CONFIDENCE: With a low seat height, a solo saddle, and mid-mount foot pegs that keep your feet underneath you, the Chief gives every rider complete control.
  • MODERN TECHNOLOGY HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT: More of what you need, less of what you don't.
  • FEATURES FOR THE WIN: Off the line, every Chief Dark Horse comes with keyless ignition, USB charging port, cruise control, and super-sticky Pirelli® Night Dragon tires.
  • LIGHT YOUR WAY: Full LED lighting provides great visibility to the road ahead.
  • CHOOSE YOUR RIDE: Choose between three ride modes - Tour, Standard, and Sport - for an experience that’s tailored to your riding style.
