The 2020 Challenger is Indian’s entry into the muscle bagger arena. A 1,770 cc, liquid cooled 60 degree v-twin named the PowerPlus provides 122 HP and 128 lbs-ft of torque, making this the most powerful motorcycle in Indian’s bagger lineup.
With so much power, stopping power is important. That is why Indian worked with Brembo to create bespoke brakes for the model, with 4 piston dual calipers and discs up front, and 2 piston single caliper and disc out back. Suspension is also reworked, with an inverted fork up front and a hydraulically assisted monoshock at the rear to give the Challenger a sporting but comfortable ride.
The Challenger features standard ABS, cruise control, traction control, and Indian Ride Command 7 inch infotainment system with 100 Watts of power for the front fairing-mounted speakers.
The 2020 Indian Challenger starts at $21,999 US/$26,999 CDN.
