2020 Indian Challenger Dark Horse Thunder Black Smoke is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liquid Cooled Perfection I traded my Springfield for the Challenger Dark Horse and though I loved my Springfield, I am not turning back or interested in any other models or manufactures! Epic power and handling. Love the Apple CarPlay and technology suite. Could not be happier. All the compliments from others doesn’t hurt either :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best. Bike. Ever. Title says it all. I've had many bikes over the years, but when I sat on this and melted into the seat, I knew it was for me. The ride is smooth and fun and the looks will turn heads. My only regret is not purchasing the saddlebag speakers! (That'll change in due time)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing motorcycle I purchased my 2020 Indian Challenger Dark Horse Thunder Black Smoke in March of 2020. I can't stop riding it. The only complaint I have is the limited accessories to make it yours, but what are you going to do with a first year motorcycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safety First Bought this bike a month and a half ago. Already rode it 4200 miles. Was riding to work about 60mph in the dark and a deer jumped in front of me. The bike is totaled but I believe the smart lean technology kept me from getting seriously injured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an incredible ride! Purchased this bike towards the end of July and am so glad I did. Loved my Chieftain, but love the power and agility of my Challenger even more. Lots of compliments and looks when I’m heading down the road.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great bike but Polaris needs to address stalling This is a great bike. I have owned over 80 motorcycles my life time. I started riding at 5 and I’m now 57. My only two grips are 1. The stalling, seems to be huge among those who purchased this bike. 2. The noise coming from the engine. I wouldn’t recommend this bike (love my chieftain) until Indian finds a solution to the above problems. I am in a National LEMC and most are awaiting for the problems of the challenger to be corrected.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some problems After only 300 miles bike wouldn't start, dead battery. Put it on a charger for a day and got it started then bike just shut off as I was riding. Got it started again and has been running ok.
