Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Chieftain Darkhorse Bought my bike November of 2022 and I couldn’t be happier! I love the way it looks and rides like a dream. Already added Tab Performance slip ones and next will be the factory stage 1 Indian air cleaner. Hoping more companies will provide some after market parts for Indian as the brand grows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome ride I have ridden smaller bikes for many years. I traded my beautiful Scout for the Chieftain Dark Horse. So happy I did. This bike rides like a dream. Smooth and comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the bike.. I've been wanting this bike for quite some time. The wait time was a bit long from the time of order to delivery. I've only had the bike for 2 weeks, but so far, I'm really enjoying it. I do have a few minor gripes tho. 1. The stock seat is garbage. Had to buy a new seat after my first 100 mile ride. 2. The engine heat is far more than my last bike (which was water cooled). I'm hoping the Stage 1 air intake and slip ons will help lower the heat off the engine tho. 3. The headlight is garbage.. and the upgraded pathfinder headlight is FAR too expensive. I'll probably change it out with an aftermarket light. 4. The grips aren't comfortable and I'll definitely be changing them out asap. 5. Many of the blacked out parts are on back order with no time-frame for when they'll be back in stock. I'm waiting on the passenger floorboards. Aside from the above.. the bike is pretty sweet. Love the Blue Slate Metallic paint. Its beautiful to look at. The suspension is pretty good. The bike feels nimble and its easy to ride. The technology is amazing. Unless something goes wrong.. I can see myself riding this bike for many years to come.
