2020 Indian Challenger Dark Horse
The 2020 Indian Challenger Dark Horse is the bad boy muscle bagger on the block. Sharing the same 1,770 cc, liquid-cooled 60-degree v-twin PowerPlus engine, the Dark Horse has 122 HP and 128 lbs-ft of torque.
Where the bad boy attitude comes from is the completely blacked out engine and profile of the motorcycle in matte paint. The front headlight gets a darker surround and flared front fairing to give it a menacing look. ABS, cruise control, and Indian Ride Command 7 inch infotainment system with navigation all come standard.
New for driver aids is the Bosch powered Smart Lean Technology system, which provides a 6 axis traction and stability control package that makes it incredibly hard to lose the bike in a corner by using dynamic ABS, vectored torque, and dynamic traction to help you bring the bike back into line.
The 2020 Indian Challenger Dark Horse starts at $27,499 US/$33,999 CDN.
