I have own a lot of bikes including Victory CCT, Harley Ultra Limiteds, and Harley Road Glide and can say that for my money it out performed all of them all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 80% HAPPY THE follows....handling, wind protection, audio quality, looks, brakes (especially after I flushed and bled the front brakes), storage capacity, engine power, exhaust tone, lighting,especially the headlite BUT ONLY after a massive re-adjustment of the headlite, THE NOT SO GOOD...front brakes b4 I flushed and bled were disappointing, windshield mechanism rattle (just like on my previous Chieftain Dark Horse, come on Indian fix this so we dn't have to), the seat too soft and causes quite a bit of pain and discomfort, poor headlite aiming from the factory (waaaaay too low) THE BAD....engine dropping a cylinder, running on one cylinder A MULTITUDE OF TIMES, requiring a NINE HOUR total travel time plus 4 hours shop time to have Mike at Holeshot Powersports, who seems to be the only tech in the USA that has the cure, requiring throttle body synchronization....tremendous and unacceptable noise and vibration from the clutch, and probably the worst of all is paint quality is HORRIBLE. My skoot has about 80% ORANGE PEEL, absolutely embarrassing and ridiculous for a $28,000+ motorcycle. The finish doesn't even compare to the Japanese! I have been a motorcycle technician for 44 1/2 years,also have owned my own motorcycle performance shop for over 30 years, so I come with experience and knowledge most do not have. I am highly respected on, 2 different Kawasaki forums (b4 my Chieftain Dark Horse I owned a Kawasaki Vaquero) and various Facebook pages of these brands. Overall I am in love with this skoot and plan on keeping it a long time. I had my Vaquero for 5 years and 100,000 miles and the Chieftain for 4 1/2 and 88,000 miles, so this skoot will surely be put thru it's paces. RACNRAY

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I am very happy I purchased this challenger limited was bike shopping and for the money it was definitely worth it. It would have been nice to offer a gift card for accessories for purchasing a new bike for the money I spent

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 20 Challenger Limited Bought this bike early February 2021. Bike Bike runs well but have had a few issues with the bike -battery not quite strong enough, replaced 3 so far. Ride command not working like it should-escalated to Polaris. Other than those issues happy with the bike so far. Hope they resolve the issues !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value Overall this is a very comfortable and powerful bike. I can ride it for hours. I'm a shorter guy and will most likely put on the longer handle bars as its a little tough for me in full lock turning but thats about the only issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2021 challenger limited Love bike has great get and go. Suspension is awesome. Major issue is have to have Bluetooth speaker to get car play to work and a very big issue is can’t separate the Gps voice commands and the music. Harley allows you to separate music from bike to head speakers ( Gps in head speakers and music from bike or other way around and both in head speakers or both from bike. That is a major over sight on electronics. Would only hope for a download software update on that. Handling is fantastic and the traction control is great along with the separate modes. Paint seems a little thin , allowing minor scratches in tank paint from clothing tub and side bags rom debris. Adding a paint hardener I think would benefit this. Having a limiter on speed wasn’t a nice surprise. And to pay Loydz $700 to fix that and remove throttle lag wasnt to nice either. or just leave alone and ride nice you won’t notice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice ride My Indian Challenger Limited is a fine motorcycle. It feels planted on the road, stops well, the tires grip and the 108 ci Powerplus engine is a beast. The factory seat is not good for long rides. The non-locking faring compartments are questionable. The exhaust note is lacking. Ride Command is good and needs to get better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not happy with warranty procedures My check engine light came on while I was out riding I immediately took it in to Sky Power Sports of Longwood There was an ERROR CODE that needed to be reset by the Dealership, not something any one could do, which cost me $155.00 out of pocket because they said diagnostics are not covered by warranty They said if parts would of be needed they could of rolled it in to that cost Make no sense that diagnostics is not covered in a situation like mine

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bike I decided it was time to buy my first bagger, the only regret I have is that I didn’t do it sooner. Growing up I only owned small, light bikes. For the past 15 years I was riding my 2002 HD vrsca V ROD. I was very skeptical about buying a bagger since I was used to the power and speed of my last bike and thought there was no way a bagger could feel as powerful, or anywhere close to it. This challenger has plenty of power and I guessing they will have lots of performance upgrades available in the future. I test rode the HD street glide and road glide then the Indian chieftain and challenger. Being a HD guy I was disappointed in HD in the lack of features that came standard on my challenger also being 6’2” the challenger fit me better without spending $2k to do so. Bottom line is I felt more comfortable on the challenger and got more bang for my buck than I would’ve gotten with the HD. I put a bunch of accessories on my bike but to get the same same features and power with a HD it would’ve cost me $10k+ extra. The nail in the coffin for HD was the dealerships in town. My Indian dealership treats me way better than the HD dealership ever has! Only reason for 4 stars is factory exhaust is way too quiet but with the stage 1 upgrade I did it’s a solid 5 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Handling and Overall Performance! My wife saw this bike a month ago at the dealer and liked the color (red). She insisted I test ride it and offered to buy it for me! I started riding just before my 60th birthday and this is my 23rd motorcycle. None before were bought with my wife's blessing! It replaces a Indian Chieftain Ltd. which was great! The more I ride the Challenger the more impressed I am and it could become the only bike in my garage! Ride and handling are superior and acceleration far exceeds that of previous bikes. Very stable and comfortable at all speeds even in strong wind and inclement weather! Acceleration is extremely strong even up to top speed! Awesome! Every bikers' dream!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade ride After riding a scout for 16,000+ miles, I upgraded to the challenger limited. Best purchase ever! Attention to detail, power, comfort, and accessories are top of the line. Can't wait to ride it everywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Landlocked Rocket Ship For months I was not a fan and could never see parting with my Roadmaster Classic but one test ride sold me and I started looking at the Challenger differently. Now a few months in I love this bike. The ride, power, "no engine heat", and electronics are all first rate. Glad I made the change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Looking and Performing Machine! I like the new Indian 2020 Challenger Limited as it is an American brand with a unique engine that provides tremendous performance. The bike is very easy to ride, has lots of torque and horse power. Great looking and handles very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bike I have had the bike for a month. Love it the best bike I have owned. The only thing is the motor is very noisy taking it back to have them look at it! Over all would definitely recommend this bike has a lot of power and very comfortable to ride!
