Indian Challenger Limited

Starting at $27,999 US MSRP
2020 Indian Challenger Limited Thunder Black Pearl is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I have been riding bikes since I was a kid. Started on dirt bikes and moved to street bikes as an adult. I have ridden Yamaha, Kawasaki's and most recently Harley's. I can say that the Challenger is my favorite bike I have ever ridden. I just love this bike. It is well-balanced, has awesome acceleration and the overall riding experience is second to none. I can't say enough good things, the infotainment system is great as well. I would like a little better sound but most everyone wants their own preference there so that is easily handled in aftermarket accessories. Bottom line, run, do not walk, to buy this bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the bike I love the bike. The power and handling make this bike the best bagger in the class. You do not need to spend a bunch of money on it to make it an awesome performer. I have a few minor electrical glitches that need taken care of, but overall the bike is fantastic. My list of issues are.. Brake lights come on after hitting a bump ( my friends challenger does this also). Chassis light comes on intermittently but does not set codes.(friends does this also) Intermittently it will not power up from the start button and I will have to use the fairing switch. Fuel gauge is slow to read full( also intermittently). Even with these issues I have no regrets buying this bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bike, needs a few updates I love this bike. I have owned several motorcycles and this is one I just cannot get off of. Indian knocked it out of the park with this one . All that said I am bummed that within the first 500 miles I have had 3 check engine lights leaving me on the side of the road and then limping home. My dealership had determined the issue to be the throttle body so hopefully this fixes the issue. The other issue is the throttle lag, the software needs an update, there is a disconnect from the time you turn the throttle and when the bike reacts. Overall I think this bike is amazing and I am confident Indian will fix these issues. I honestly believe the Challenger has reset the bar as to what an American bagger should be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indian Challenger Limited I just came home from a 2500 mile trip through Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada and back home to California ridding 2 up and our gear! The Challenger was awesome and handled very well on the trip. The seat could use some improvement or I'm just getting old! Lol I also noticed that aerodynamics when hit with wind from the side there is no where for the wind to go as its all motor so hang on. I'm not disappointed at all with my purchase and I'm sure Polaris will make improvements on future Challengers. Great motorcycle and my wife loves the shock and is a extremely smooth ridding bike

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great step forward Coming off a Victory Vision for the last 5 years. Also have had multiple Gold Wings plus lots of bikes outside touring category. Indian has a very strong motor. Pulls hard from bottom and doesn't die out at 4.5 thousand RPM's like most large v-twins. I ride 2 up and this Challenger is a bit more compact then the Vision and the seat isn't as comfortable. Both bikes have 6 gallon tanks but Vision got an extra 50 miles out of the tank. Sacrifices we make for the power I suppose. Outside of those areas the Challenger is a better bike everywhere else and a blast to ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performer!!! Love the power and comfort, suspension and brakes so far beyond other baggers I have rented on longer trips to test before purchase. Rear suspension in particular saves my back where other brands are ridiculously lacking travel and control, sealed the deal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ultimate American made performance bagger! Just finished 5,000 miles after trip to Montana and Glacier. Performance and handling were outstanding, This bike is a dream to maneuver and is very responsive in all twist and turns, Brakes and tires help in making this bike so easy to ride in virtually all conditions. Ride command was outstanding and unlike past GPS I used this one extensively. I do wish they had a touring seat option. However, the bike was very comfortable.
