The 2021 Indian Roadmaster Dark Horse Brings Some Attitude to the Touring Scene
The Roadmaster Dark Horse returns for 2021 to injects some blacked-out attitude to the 2021 Indian line-up. While it shares almost all of its DNA with the stock Roadmaster model, the Roadmaster Dark Horse has a bolder aesthetic for riders who want to turn heads as well as munch-miles. It’s an eye-catching touring cruiser that performs as good as it looks.
Along with the rest of the Roadmaster range, the 2021 Dark Horse variant uses Indian’s powerful, American-made Thunderstroke 116 power plant. This 1,890 cc liquid-cooled V-twin engine produces an impressive 92 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque. Since this model has the Dark Horse designation, the engine is one of many components that get the full blacked-out treatment.
The Roadmaster Dark Horse is undoubtedly a statement bike, but it also comes equipped with bucketloads of premium features and extras from Indian Motorcycles. Top-shelf riding aids such as selectable ride modes, cruise control, ABS, and rear cylinder deactivation come as standard. Remote-locking luggage, keyless ignition, heated grips, and a full instrumentation suite are also included.
As an Indian touring motorcycle, the Roadmaster Dark Horse also gets the RideCommand infotainment system, complete with navigation, Apple CarPlay integration, and more.
For 2021, the Roadmaster Dark Horse is available in three distinct color options: Thunder Black Smoke, White Smoke, and Bronze Smoke.
The 2021 Indian Roadmaster Dark Horse starts at $29,999 USD / $36,499 CAD.
