Making the Indian Dark Horse Even Darker

Indian Motorcycle reveals a list that comprises no less than 16 parts and accessories that have been specially developed to add more darkness to the attire of your Dark Horse. Definitely not the ultimate treat for those who only dream of shiny chrome accents, this "darker than black" collection will, however, add extra aggressiveness to the bike.

Launched earlier this year, the Dark Horse is the newest bike Indian adds to the line-up, and a worthy successor of the previous editions. Building on the same platform as the rest of the big-bore Indians, the Dark Horse is a more spartan ride that ditches everything but the bare necessities.

Simple, lighter and benefiting from all the technologies its siblings enjoy, the Dark Horse is equipped with the fuel-injected Thunder Stroke 111 engine, ABS, cruise control and hybrid instrumentation.A special Remus all-black exhaust for Europe
With Europe being very strict as far as motorcycle exhausts go, Indian asked silencer masters Remus to craft a special exhaust system for the Dark Horse.
