Now, CycleWorld’s just confirmed the Challenger’s identical sets of pipes, along with the same state of tune and intake – and possibly even the same chassis, with the bike sporting the same tire sizes.
“The Pursuit’s overall dimensions…show it’s taller, longer, and heavier than the Challenger – a combination that can only point to it being a full-dress tourer,” explains Ben in his report.
“The length increase puts the Pursuit at 102.7 inches overall, up from 98.5 inches for the Challenger. With no change in wheelbase, that additional 4.2 inches can only mean a longer tail, no doubt the result of the addition of a top case, probably incorporating an armchair-style passenger backrest.”
As for weight, what better way to prove the new Pursuit will be fully-dressed than the fact that we’re told the chonker will slap the curbside at a gravitationally amicable 197lbs., beating even Indian’s RoadMaster by a full 9?
Suffice it to say that something this big will definitely have advanced electronics, if the ‘Premium Package’ add-on is any indicator…
