2022 Chief Dark Horse Black Smoke

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.

Full LED lighting provides great visibility to the road ahead.
