Introducing the 2023 Indian Pursuit Dark Horse…

The next generation of American touring performance, with an aggressive blacked-out finish to match.

 

 

 

2023 Indian Pursuit Dark Horse Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Rock Solid Stability

With a chassis-mounted fairing, with optional electronically adjustable Fox® rear suspension, inverted front forks, and a cast-aluminum frame, you have the ultimate control.

A Big Motor With Big Torque

You’ll crush miles with unimaginable low end torque right off the line and exhilarating top end passing power from the liquid-cooled V-twin PowerPlus motor.

Unsurpassed Comfort

The frame-mounted fairing provides exceptional wind protection on its own. For even more, adjust the vents in the lowers or simply push a button to move the windshield. While it’s considerate to check in on a passenger when you have one, you don’t really need to: in this two-up configuration with available heated seats, they’ll be just as comfortable as you.

Cutting Edge Technology

Cruise control, built in audio, keyless ignition and even more ride enhancing tech are combined with a 7-inch touchscreen. The touchscreen is powered by RIDE COMMAND and features Apple CarPlay® integration, Bluetooth connectivity and RIDE COMMAND+ connected features like live weather and traffic overlay.

Long Haul Storage

More than 35 gallons of weatherproof, remote-locking storage can handle all the gear you’ve got. Or take off the quick-release trunk to drop weight and give yourself a whole new profile.

Personalized Style

Whether you choose all chrome or black out the finishes, you’ll never be lost in the crowd.

 

 

2023 LINEUP: A Diverse Range for Any Rider

Touting a wider range of models and options than ever before, the 2023 Indian Motorcycle line offers a model suited for any rider and a host of new upgrades, including:

  • All Thunderstroke and PowerPlus models receive a new clutch – improving the overall feel and forgiveness. This new slipper clutch reduces engine drag which provides a smoother down shifting experience and comfortable ride while improving your ability to maintain traction when facing poor road conditions. Lastly, the larger friction zone and decreased lever effort reduces your clutch fatigue, which can be beneficial in urban areas or when riding in traffic.
  • Indian Springfield, Chieftain, Indian Challenger, Roadmaster and Indian Pursuit models feature a redesigned LED headlight, which improves reach and spread of light — helping the rider see what lies ahead, while also improving their visibility to other motorists on the road.
  • Integrated buttons on the Heated Seats and Heated and Cooled Seats for PowerPlus and heavyweight Thunderstroke models now feature haptics, which allow riders to feel the button’s responsive when wearing gloves.

Indian Pursuit with Premium Package models now offer Lower Fairing Storage compartments as standard.

  • Models with the four-inch round touchscreen display can now tie their RIDE COMMAND account from the Indian Motorcycle app or website to their bike, allowing app and web-accessible features like vehicle health, vehicle locator and ride tracking.

Across the line, Indian Motorcycle has introduced an array of new paint colors, including Sagebrush Smoke on Chief Dark Horse and Stryker Red Metallic on Scout Bobber Sixty, Chief Bobber and Roadmaster Limited models. Spirit Blue Metallic is a new color option on Chieftain Limited and Indian Pursuit models, while Titanium Smoke is introduced to Indian Challenger Dark Horse models.
