The 2021 Indian Challenger Dark Horse Brings a Futuristic Aesthetic
The Challenger Dark Horse returns to the Indian line-up for 2021, adding a touch of darkness to the celebrated Challenger range. Featuring a lightweight cast-aluminum frame, a large front fairing, hard luggage, and a giant engine, this model has all the makings of a legendary muscle cruiser. It could even be one of the best models from Indian Motorcycles this year.
The 2021 Indian Challenger Dark Horse uses Indian’s American-made Powerplus 108 V-twin engine. It’s a 1768 cc liquid-cooled unit that’s capable of producing 122 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of peak torque. That power is delivered to the rear wheel via a six-speed transmission, and controlled using Smart Lean Technology in the form of dynamic traction control, drag torque control, and ABS as standard.
The only real difference to the stock Challenger model is the blacked-out color options—but black and dark isn’t the only color option for this year.
For 2021, the Challenger Dark Horse is available in Thunder Black Smoke, Bronze Smoke, or White Smoke trims. Each option comes with ABS as standard.
The 2021 Indian Challenger Dark Horse starts at $27,999 USD / $34,499 CAD.
