The 2021 Indian Challenger
The Indian Challenger first debuted in 2020 and it has already cemented itself as one of the best bikes in the 2021 Indian line-up, and one of the best American motorcycles on the market. Designed to take on the Harley-Davidson Road Glide, the Challenger features a huge engine, touring luggage, and an aggressive front fairing.
The Challenger uses Indian Motorcycle’s new PowerPlus engine, a 1,770cc liquid-cooled V-twin with impressive output stats. The max power is rated at 122 horsepower, with an impressive 128 lb-ft of torque. The all-new engine is mated to an all-new six-speed transmission with a true overdrive. Other powertrain enhancers include three ride modes (Rain, Standard, Sport) and an assist clutch for smoother riding. Traction control and custom engine maps are also included.
A comprehensive instrument cluster nestles in the front fairing, along with a 7” touchscreen infotainment. The infotainment system includes a clock, heading, temperature display, Bluetooth, USB, Smartphone integration, and an awesome 100-watt audio system. Other cool extras include LED lighting, ABS, cruise control, and a range of 15 LED indicators.
If that wasn’t enough, 18+ gallons of storage space, keyless ignition, Brembo brakes, and locking hard luggage all come as standard.
For 2021, the Challenger is available in Thunder Black or Titanium Smoke trims.
The 2021 Indian Challenger starts at $22,999 USD / $27,999 CAD.
