Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent handling I hadn’t planned on purchasing a new ride this season, rather my plan was for next spring. I needed my 15,000 mile service on my Chieftain,so I dropped it off for my appointment. While I was waiting, I sat on the Challenger I was hoping to get next year. Cory the salesman came by and after a short conversation I asked him to give me a trade in quote. It was to good to pass up, so I came home with a Challenger Dark Horse in Titanium smoke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st Bagger at age 59 Having only been riding since turning 50 yo., having ridden Bavarian Bikes, and British Distinguished Gentlemen’s Bikes mostly during the last 9 years (5 bikes). This year I started with an idea to get a Bagger, tried the usual and found that the pound for pound the value that the Challenger represented was head and shoulders above the competition. Inverted front forks, available electronic suspension, 3 ride modes, good HP and Torque, adjustable windscreen, build quality all made it obvious that the Indian Challenger would be an addition to the stable. Purchased 28th of March 2023 and have had a lot of fun with the “Grey Ghost” so far, getting used to the riding position. Looking forward to some trips on the Ghost to visit the Dragon and Snake, and visit the Blue Ridge in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ride! Lots of standard equipment. '22 Bronze Smoke Dark Horse. Love this bike. The torque is incredible. Has the color combo I wanted (no chrome, matte paint). Upgraded the exhaust (stock always sounds weak), added saddlebag speakers and lower fairings. Love this bike so much. Has many features that would have to be added to other brands. The adjustable windscreen is awesome! Only two complaints about this bike. 1. The trigger buttons and cool joystick on the clutch side does not interact with the all ride command features. Little things like being able to adjust the EQ or heated grips cannot be done. Have to use the touchscreen or manual control. I feel this could be fixed with the write coding and update to the system (hint hint Indian). 2. CarPlay requires a Bluetooth connection to a headset. I am told this is an Apple safety thing. There is a work around, but it limits features. I love this ride and would recommend taking one for a test before jumping on another brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought my bike a month ago. I’ve been a diehard HD guy. When my Roadglide was totaled (not by me) Rey at Hollister Indian asked me to test ride it. I was sold right off the bat. Handles better and faster than HD. The interactive features are pretty good too. I’m not fond of the bars but that is changing very soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun bike The bike is nice but is plauged with misfires issues and doesn't run well. The dealer is working in solving the issue but other then that the bike is good. Good brakes and power when it doesn't misfire.
