2020 Indian Challenger Dark Horse Thunder Black Smoke is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 100.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it but still needs work. This bike is an awesome performer. However, the speed limiter is ridiculous, the navigation is horrible and the fit and finish is light years behind the other American made bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing machine! When I first started shopping for a bike I cam across the challenger dark horse sandstone smoke! And my shopping was done it’s a rare occasion to see something and instantly know that is the bike for you. Iv always wanted and Indian because my great grandfather fought in WW1 it was his job to deliver new orders to the frontlines. He rode on a Indian Powerplus! So for me it’s an amazing machine and a way to get l in touch with my great grandfather who I never got to meet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bike I've owned! Indian really raised the bar with this one! The liquid cooled 108 is smooth and extremely powerful. Clutch pull is easy, though it takes a bit to get used to the engage point. The bike weighs 840 pounds, yet feels much lighter. The ride quality is on par with the BMW 1600, and I consider the seat perfect for long rides. (It is much more comfortable than the roadmaster seat, but not heated) I love the styling of the fixed fairing, though it might not be for everyone....this is not a nostalgic bike like the chieftain or roadmaster (although I love the classic style too, this is my 4th Indian)....this is a fully modern, high performing, technologically advanced ride for the 21st century.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING MOTORCYCLE I bought this bike in November 2020 I traded my 17 Chieftain I was very nervous about the trade as I loved the Chieftain. I Must say after putting miles on the Challenger I couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in class hands down. Traded in my 2020 Road Glide Limited which had Stage IV 131. Looking forward to adding some motor mods. I don’t like having cruise control on the right side awkward setting the cruise. Not crazy about having the turn signals on one side either but I can with that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bagger I am a long time sport bike guy, road racer and avid track day guy. I love my Yamaha R1. I bought one of the other brands bikes and the suspension sucked. Didn’t handle well. Had little power and made more noise than anything else. My Challenger is everything I wanted in a bagger. Great motor that revs quick has great power right off the line. Suspension, Brembo brakes, traction control. This thing is awesome. For a big bike I can relax enjoy the music or roll the throttle and have a ton of laughs scraping the floor boards. I’ll never sell my R1 and now this bagger will remain right beside it.
