2022 Indian Challenger

The 2022 Indian Challenger Is a Hardcore Power Cruiser

Shortly after its introduction in 2020, the Indian Challenger became one of the most popular options in the power cruiser niche. It’s one of the most capable motorcycles in the 2022 Indian Motorcycle line-up, and the American manufacturer has equipped it with the best it has to offer.

With its sights set on rivals like the Harley-Davidson Road Glide, the 2022 Indian Challenger features a powerful engine, saddlebags, and an aggressive front fairing.

Powering the Challenger is Indian Motorcycle’s new PowerPlus 108 engine — a 1,770 cc liquid-cooled V-twin that produces an impressive 122 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. The engine comes paired to a six-speed transmission that works alongside an assist clutch to reduce clutch effort.

The Indian Challenger features a comprehensive list of rider aids and features, including a 7-inch touchscreen powered by the company’s Ride Command system, three selectable ride modes, hard saddlebags with over 18 gallons of storage, adjustable fairing airflow vents, and a power windshield.

It also has excellent hardware, like radially mounted Brembo calipers and grippy Metzeler Cruisetec tires.

For 2022, the Challenger is available in two color schemes — Black Metallic and Titanium Smoke.

The 2022 Indian Challenger starts at $24,499 USD / $29,849 CAD
