With the introduction of the 2022 Indian Pursuit Dark Horse Premium Touring Bike, Indian Motorcycles, America’s first motorcycle brand, today unveiled the next generation of American V-Twin touring performance. The 2022 Indian Pursuit is the most capable and beautiful American touring car on the road, thanks to its liquid-cooled Power Plus engine, smooth ride-enhancing technologies, chassis-fit fairing, and outstanding touring comfort.
The 2022 Indian Pursuit Dark Horse Premium Touring Bike has been carefully crafted for the pros who love the journey more than the destination. It is packed with unmatched comfort and performance. Riders can easily choose from 4 options to suit their riding style and personal taste, with each bike coming in two trim levels and is available in two body styles. The 2022 Indian Pursuit Dark Horse and Dark Horse Limited are two unique models with a premium package that contains advanced ride-enhancing technology and other comfort features.
According to Mike Dougherty, President of Indian Motorcycle, “Touring bikes are one of the greatest expressions of freedom – offering exhilarating experiences through extended routes and epic adventures on the open road.” With the Pursuit, we have delivered a class-leading, fully loaded touring machine based on the unparalleled sophistication of the Power Plus motor that combines elite performance with exceptional comfort and advanced technology features unmatched by any other. Unlike the American V-Twin, it offers a touring experience.
The Indian Motorcycle Power Plus engine, a liquid-cooled V-twin, 108 cubic-inch that delivers a class-leading 122 hp and 128 ft-lbs of torque, is at the heart of every model. Every 2022 Pursuit model has an upgraded Power Plus calibration that enhances low-speed drivability and the overall riding experience.
Indian 2022 Pursuit Dark Horse with Premium Package and 2022 Indian Pursuit Dark Horse Premium Touring Bike with Premium Package is available for riders who want to take their experience further. Each model is equipped with the all-new Fox® electronically adjustable rear suspension preload that riders can change for optimal comfort and handling in different conditions. The bike’s infotainment system makes it extremely easy to control the electrically adjustable rear suspension preload, whether you’re riding alone, with a passenger, or with extra luggage. All-new electronic preload is an optional upgrade that can be added to the 2022 Indian Pursuit Dark Horse Premium Touring Bike and is standard on Premium Package vehicles.
Both premium versions also feature user-friendly Smart Lane technology, which uses a Bosch® IMU to add efficient cornering control to Dynamic Traction Control and ABS to keep riders safely anchored. The two options include premium-designed heated seats for greater comfort in cold weather and integrated driving lights within the lower fairing.
Indian Motorcycle offers some performance accessories that add more power and customized design to the Indian Pursuit models. Power Plus Stage 2 performance cams deliver 10% more horsepower and 3% more torque, while the Power Plus air cleaner gives the bike a more intake sound.
With a choice of two kits for their hard lower fairings, a pair of Mitered Mid-Rise Handlebars, LED lighting options, and several soft goods items, Indian Pursuit riders looking to customize their rides further can do so. Are Riders can integrate an Indian Motorcycle Powerband audio kit or add more storage compartments to better the space inside the hard lower fairing of the Pursuit. With Powerband Audio fully updated, riders will hear surround sound from four places, including the front fairing, lower fairing, saddlebags, and cargo trunk. Indian Motorcycle Mitered Mid-Rise Handlebars raise the upper controls to a comfortable level while also giving the bike a stunning custom design. For a better visibility, riders can also install LED illumination. One such option is the adaptive LED headlight, which automatically adjusts to where the light shines based on the bike’s lean angle. And finally, for organized, secure luggage that’s easy to attach and detach from the bike, riders can choose from four customizable items in the Spirit Lake luggage collection.
