The Chief is powered by the 116-cubic-inch Thunderstroke V-twin, which eschews top-end power for low-end torque.

The bike looks and feels like a slice of 1940s and '50s motorcycling, but offers plenty of modern conveniences.

These include antilock brakes and user-selectable ride modes.

The bike packs the bobbed fenders and chunky tires of its forebears, as its name would suggest, and these heavily influence its style.

Like the majority of Indian's products, the Chief Bobber feels like a high-quality machine.

It uses minimal plastic in its construction, instead opting for steel and aluminum.

The materials choice increases the feel of quality, but it also dramatically increases its weight.

The Chief Bobber Dark Horse gets a single, round 4-inch TFT display that looks old-school and analog from a distance.
