2023 Chief Dark Horse Black Smoke is rated out of 5 by 378.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveBob from Checks a lot of boxes Have put 800 miles on my CDH. I traded in a 2019 Scout. I liked the fact that it was just as easy to handle even though a little heavier than the Scout. My intent was to upgrade so I could go on slightly longer rides with my friends who had bigger baggers without having stop more often for gas and wanted a beefier engine. The 116 does everything I need and more. Cruise control was huge and works well. The 4 gallon tank was a plus. I'm getting about 47 mpg at the moment. It handles just as well as the Scout but because of its increased weight wouldn't necessarily call it nimble. Acceleration, even in standard, is very responsive but in sport is almost too much given its stock smaller seat. I personally like the stock exhaust and liken the sound to being in a small ships engine room with the cylinders loud clacking. A very mechanical sound as opposed to a loud slip on muffler sound. Brakes seem adequate enough for my riding and I love that it comes stock with abs. I will probably upgrade the seat and add a small windscreen but not much else. The touchscreen display is a game changer in my opinion but it's my first digital display. Easy to navigate with several options like touchscreen and button activation. A great bike as it comes but also a great platform for making it your own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chief dark horse from Beautiful motorcycle I bought this motorcycle four months ago and I am glad I did. From the style of the bike to the technology that is housed within it, the bike is fantastic. I love the navigation system as well as the cruise control. The look and style easily beats the competition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by firemen_343 from Amazing motorcycle Coming from sport bikes and racing on tracks, I never thought I’d buy a bike like this. One demo day later, I was hooked. The tech, the style, the power.. all add up to nothing but smiles when riding the Chief Dark Horse Even my wife loves to take rides with me. It’s an amazing motorcycle with timeless design. My only complaint would be the gas cap and levers! It needs to be black to complete the “dark” look.
