Indian Motorcycle has once again delivered a powerful and stylish beast with the perfect combination of power, style, and comfort in the form of the 2023 Indian Challenger. The heart of the Challenger is the PowerPlus liquid-cooled V-twin engine, a modern marvel that redefines V-twin performance while retaining the heritage of American motorcycles. Though it boasts a class-leading 128 ft-lbs of torque and 122 horsepower, it’s suspension is up to the task with an inverted front fork and hydraulically adjustable Fox® rear shock that work together to deliver precise, curve-hugging handling that will have you craving every twist and turn on the road. The Challenger also features race-spec, radially-mounted Brembo® brakes for superior stopping power and Metzeler tires for exceptional traction.
Aesthetically, the Indian Challenger boasts an aggressive fairing design, complete with full LED lighting and menacingly styled running lights, creating a signature face that commands attention.
Customization and comfort are key when it comes to long rides and something the Indian Motorcycle brand is known to do well. The Indian Challenger offers three ride modes – Rain, Standard, and Sport – allowing you to tailor your experience to your riding style. The innovative Rear Cylinder Deactivation system automatically shuts off the rear cylinder when the bike is stopped, ensuring enhanced comfort in slow-moving traffic.
Just like other models in the 2023 Indian paddock, the Challenger has a comprehensive electronics package with features that include keyless ignition, locking hard saddlebags, cruise control, and a USB charging port – everything you need for long, comfortable rides. The Challenger also offers 18 gallons of weatherproof cargo space in its locking slammed saddlebags, ensuring your gear stays protected from the elements.
The 2023 Indian Challenger starts at $24,999 USD/$30,449 CAD
