Powered by the recently revealed Indian PowerPlus engine, Indian’s first liquid-cooled large displacement motor (1769 cc/108 cubic-inch, 60-degree, four-valve, overhead-cam V-twin) packs a best-in-class 122 horsepower and 178 Nm of torque at 3800 rpm.

The new powertrain also features a six-speed transmission with true overdrive and an assist clutch to reduce clutch effort. Hydraulic valve lash adjusters and camshaft chain tensioners lower maintenance costs.

Reid Wilson – Vice President of Indian Motorcycle

“The Indian Challenger delivers a new level of performance for riders who understand that the seemingly small details make a huge difference. Our mindset was to leave no stone unturned and deliver a bagger that exceeds the standards in categories like power, handling, comfort, and technology.”

Riders can customise the bike’s throttle mapping by selecting one of three ride modes, including Rain, Standard and Sport – resulting in one motorcycle with three distinct performance personalities.

For its inaugural year, the Challenger lineup is accompanied by a variety of Indian Motorcycle Authentic Accessories that allow riders to upgrade their ride based on their preferences. With the Indian Challenger Rogue Collection, riders can and add premium blacked-out styling with a gloss black mid-rise handlebar, a tinted curved windshield and gloss black front highway bars.

For an added measure of comfort over longer hauls there’s the Indian Challenger Tour Collection, including a 406 mm (16-inch) windshield, quick release passenger sissy bar, passenger backrest and passenger floorboards, an extended reach seat, rider backrest pad, infinite highway pegs and pinnacle heel shifter. Riders can also upgrade the Indian Challenger’s audio experience with the PowerBand Audio Plus system, which delivers exceptional sound and clarity from high-output fairing and saddlebag speakers that are 50 per cent louder than the Challenger’s stock audio system.
