The 2022 Indian Motorcycle lineup comprises four Challender models — the standard Challenger, the Challenger Dark Horse, Challenger Limited, and the Challenger Elite. The Challenger Dark Horse shares much of its specifications and hardware with the regular Challenger model. And, as its name suggests, the American manufacturer has equipped it with several blacked-out components to set it apart from its siblings.
At the heart of the Challenger Dark Horse is Indian Motorcycle’s PowerPlus 108 engine. This 1,770 cc liquid-cooled V-twin can produce 122 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque, making it one of the most powerful engines in the manufacturer’s portfolio. It’s paired with a six-speed transmission with an assist clutch to reduce clutch effort.
Like the base model, the Indian Challenger Dark Horse features a 7-inch touchscreen powered by the company’s Ride Command system, three selectable ride modes, hard saddlebags with over 18 gallons of storage, and adjustable fairing airflow vents, and a power windshield. It also adds Apple CarPlay to the infotainment system and Indian’s Smart Lean Technology.
For 2022, buyers will also get a complimentary year-long trial of Ride Command+, which includes features like live weather/traffic, intuitive destination search, vehicle health, and vehicle locator.
The 2022 Indian Challenger Dark Horse starts at $28,999 USD / $35,699 CAD
