FTR S
Starting at $14,999 US MSRP
2022 FTR S White Smoke is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 102.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome motorcyle! I bought this motorcycle a few months ago. I have been looking for something to replace my older motorcycle for about 4 years. When I first seen the FTR 1200S online, I knew it was the motorcycle for me. Indian has done a great job on this motorcycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bike! Absolutely love my FTR! My only complaint (and not a big enough complaint to reduce from 5 stats) is the range per tank of gas on this bike. Wish the tank was a little bigger. Would be tough to take it some places in fear of running out of gas. Other than that this thing is amazing! Handles great, looks good, and so much power!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from INDIAN FTR 1200 S RACE CARBON My god! What a bike! The FTR wasn't listed so I chose the next best option but this is a review of the FTR. Lemme start by saying, frankly, there was never a single product in the Indian portfolio that would get me into one of their showrooms. That all change when I first saw glimpses of this magical beast. Upon going to the demo, I must say I am quite smitten. The balance, the power, the ergos... Just WOW! You boys did WORK! Phenomenal! The gobs of torque on the low end was guttural and the bike just pulled like a locomotive! I haven't smiled so much at a demo in years! Indian is officially on my radar and I look forward to what comes next!

2022 Scout Sixty Black Metallic is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 489.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bike! I purchased this bike after briefly riding a Yamaha V Star as a learner. My new Scout 60 is better balanced, smoother acceleration, and much safer than my previous. I love taking it out and cruising the back roads and throwing it through the curves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great basic bike to start on or for seasoned rider I have had the bike a couple of months now and just over 1,000 miles. So far it has met all of my expectations. I do wish it came factory with passing lights/blinker in LED. The aftermarkets from Custom Dynamics are $189/set (front and back) to be more visible to other drivers. Overall great bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete Fun Bought in April 2020. I am new to motorcycling. After taking a basic rider course, I was on this the same day. It is so fun to ride. On it nearly every day now. Very well balanced and perfect for a beginner. The power is more than enough for a ride through town or country.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Midlife crisis People always say it's never too late for anything and I'm proof. At the age of 46 I decided to take up riding and this bike is fulfilling that dream

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great handling bike!!! I have a Indian Chief Vintage and now I also have a Scout Sixty ABS. I use the Chief when my wife and I go on trips. When I want to zip around the mountain roads with my buddies, I take the Scout Sixty. It’s FUN FUN FUN!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Bike Sharp looking super fun to ride and a great handling bike. I did my first oil change and it was very easy to do.
Date published: 2020-06-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is a little machine with a lot of heart. I wanted an Indian, but also a lightweight bike that sat low enough I could be comfortable on, I'm not disappointed in my choice. The only thing that disappoints me is the lack of accessories available to the 60 as compared to the other bikes. The Indian Scout 60 is a sleeper, don't be fooled by its' size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soooooo smooth! I have loved Indians since is was young. After many years of not riding I found myself finally having the time and I wandered into the dealer (Headingley Sport Shop in Headingley, Manitoba, Canada. Sales guy Mitch was very knowledgeable, patient and helpful. I settled on a Scout Sixty - the smallest and most basic model but I liked the look and the simplicity. Option seat to push me back 2”, option controls to move my feet 2” forward and option 2 into 1 chrome exhaust. Burgundy metallic (my daughter calls it “midlife crisis red”)! Easiest riding bike I have ever been on. Maybe not the right machine for long highway runs but it is perfect for the casual rider in and outside the city.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and Smooth Ride Have had my Scout Sixty for 2 months. Tried several bikes before going with the Scout, overall better finish work, balance, and options for the price of the others. Best of all, love the style of this bike. Lots of compliments on this sexy bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Indian I love, love, love this bike, quick acceleration, turns on a dime, no two inch heels required. Some reviews indicate this is a great beginner bike and because of the quick throttle I would have to disagree, but, if you have some experience riding or know to be careful off the line I say go for it. I love the simplicity and the look of the bike. no fussy features, idiot light for gas a bike without too much instrumentation which I love. The only two negatives are, the seat is not comfortable for long distance riding and the kick stand does not swing out far enough to make me feel confident on any downhill grade. Both these issues are easily fixed. I would recommend this bike for any height challenged people who want a retro looking bike which gets lots of compliments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun to ride Bought my Scout 60 a couple months ago, Its got plenty of power and looks amazing, rides great. The buying experience was good too). My only negatives were that there wasn't a heal shifter available for it and the windscreen doesn't do as much for reducing noise as others i have had on other bikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bike with ABS without breaking the bank... I was looking to get back into riding after a nearly five year break due to an auto-auto accident. I had always wanted an Indian, ever since I was a kid, and I was surprised to find that they were quite affordable. I picked up the Scout Sixty to be my daily driver, though with the lockdown I haven’t put a ton of miles on it yet. It’s a great bike for getting around. I’m a big guy, read heavy, and this bike not only fits me well it hauls me around with nary an effort. Most importantly when I’m on the highway it still has more to give should I need to overtake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing motorcycle! I am beyond happy with this motorcycle. The handling, cornering and gear shifting is incredibly smooth. Comfortable seat position and the handlebar reach is natural. The fender rounds out the sharp look and natural lines of the bike. This is a powerful bike without being intimidating with responsive breaking system and easy throttling. Note: I ended up ordering the reduced reach kit for the break and gear shifter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First bike ever, awesome I bought this motorcycle in mid February of this year, 2020. So far, it's been an amazing experience. Certain things I would change is add a windscreen, like the Dart Marlin to keep the wind from blasting your stomach and chest. Another would be the seat, switch it out to something more comfortable if you plan on riding for any extended period. The clutch is very forgiving for new riders. It's fairly lightweight, low to the ground and quite balanced. It doesn't take much for a new rider to become confident in their ability to keep it upright at stops. I'm 5' 10" and I not only flat foot, but my knees have quite a bend when my feet are on the ground. The bike seems to be well made. Keep in mind that the Scout Sixty will NOT come with a USB charger, but the speedometer DOES have a place to place it.

Date published: 2020-02-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE the bike, BUT So I purchased my bike on the last day of 2019. It was actually my very first bike purchase and I had done my homework. I was wanting to go Harley at first but realized it was going to be out of the budget, so when I came across the Indian I realized that this was going to be the route to go, especially since I heard they had a good reputation. Most of the deal was done over the phone and texts with my sales rep. He serviced me well and answered all my questions. Once they told me I was approved I went to the store to pick it up and I fell in love instantly. The bike rides great, even beyond my expectations. I do know that I was paying more then I should and I felt like they could have given me a better deal, but I was so happy with the bike that I was alright with paying more. I did have a pleasant surprise when they gave me a $500 dollar credit when they found out that I was a veteran. So with that credit I ended up getting a passenger seat, helmet and gloves. However, when I was shopping for these accessories, I started noticing that their gear was incredibly overpriced, almost ridiculously over priced, but again, I didn’t complain because they gave me the credit. The one thing that annoyed me though was that the rep had told me that my first tune up and oil change at 500 miles was FREE. When I hit those miles, I called service to set it up and they wanted to charge me almost $400 bucks. Needless to say I wasn’t happy about it at all, in fact I made it a point to explain to them that the sales rep had told me this. They then proceeded to tell me that they couldn’t honor that. So, I ended up taking it to a very reputable bike shop in San Bernardino where they charged me only $150. It kind of left a bad taste in my mouth because I do business with people on how they treat me. I am a man of my word and expect the same in return when they tell me something. It also made me wonder how the dealership can charge $400 bucks for service but then get the same service some place else for way cheaper. I know dealerships are all about making as much money as possible, but they should also not try to gouge people when servicing or selling parts. People will notice and go elsewhere for those kind of things. I have actually been ordering after market parts on line due to the fact that the dealership is overpriced. With that being said, I am not unhappy with the purchase. The bike is my new love and I am truly happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of powers and comfortable ride! I bought my Indian scout sixty over a month ago and I couldn’t be happier. I can’t wait to get all the accessories that I want to make it my own personal style!

Scout
Starting at $13,249 US MSRP
2022 Scout Black Metallic is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1090.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good buy for my needs I’m a senior rider with bad knees and a bad case of “shifter toe”. The bike is light and powerful, two of my three requirements. The forward controls plus after market heel toe shifter took the strain from my knees and pain from my toe. The lower seat height helps to steady the bike at stops. The torque curve comes on at higher rpms which makes the bikes power manageable in town and traffic. The brakes are very linear, but I wish the front had a more progressive feel. I love vintage look and the bike overall is miles ahead of the plasticy Metric cruisers. I’m 70 years old and had to put away my sport tourers but this bike has the weight and power I’m used too and should keep me on two wheels into my eighties.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where has the scout been all my life Purchased in September. This bike is perfect for me. Weighted low and seated low so my feet are flat, knees bent. Been riding almost 40 years and this is my 6th bike. Good things come to those who wait. She is beautiful, comfortable, easily controlled and gets compliments galore. Thank you, Indian, for the Scout.

Now my bike is running great they also threw in a bunch of free stuff for me, which made me feel really good. This Indian Scout handles like a dream, and you got a lot of real mayonnaise will power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! As an owner of 14 motorcycles and 3 Indians (Chief Vintage ‘14, Darkhorse ‘11, and now Scout 40th) I LOVE this bike. The looks, the ride, the styling, the refinement, the attention to detail, the cold fusion power below 3800 rpms, and the nuclear power above 3800 rpms, and just general feel of this bike is OUTSTANDING. Nice work Indian. Added hand warmers and the fish tail pipes which give an extra roar to this beauty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st Indian, great bike! Originally looked at this as an investment, but after riding it the first 1K miles I realized I'd invested in smiles. Good solid handling bike, very responsive to controls. Tweaked it for the way I ride (who doesn't?)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needs a better belt guard Has a plastic belt guard and the stick on reflectors have already fallen off. However, the mechanics of the bike are sound. Balance, handling and power to weight ratio are almost perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing first motorcycle I bought this Scout just over a month ago as my first motorcycle, and have already put in 900 miles. I am six feet tall, and actually love how low it is. It feels very stable and I am never worried that it will tip over. I am also glad I went with the regular Scout and not the Scout Sixty or anything less powerful. At first, it sounded like this engine would be too powerful for a first motorcycle, but I grew into it responsibly. "Responsibly," as in I already took it up to 100 mph. This this purrs, then she growls ... she's like a panther! I am so excited to grow older with this motorcycle. I only put on highway bars, and do not any other accessory at this time. She takes corners really well, and have yet to scrap a peg (knock on wood). Indian, you all hit this out the park! Please never stop producing the Scout!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect One month and over 1k miles, and I couldn't be much happier with my purchase. I am 6ft tall and will be changing over to the factory mini ape bars. I'm keeping the seat for now cause its comfy enough and looks great. I swapped the 30 pound mufflers for 2 pound shorty's that sound great. The 1 problem that keeps this from being perfect... before my break in was done (around 300 miles), the crank position sensor nailed and I had to tow twice to get it home and then to the shop. Awesome service and warranty coverage aside, this should not happen at all. BUT... running perfectly and looks, sounds, feels amazing. Beautiful piece of Americana.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First motorcycle I’m completely happy with the bike, only problem I have is with the seat. Maybe it’s me being a new rider and all, but I’ve had this bike for about two months now and ride it nonstop. But when I take excessive trips, I would say over three hours, the seat becomes highly uncomfortable. Understanding that I can get a new seat but just putting it out there. Other then that, I get nothing but compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best choice I made I bought this 10 months ago and am so happy I did! This rides smoothly and even though I chose a smaller bike cause I'm very short, the power is still there. I commute an hour on this and it's still comfortable for the long rides. Also still agile enough for the winding roads I live in. I got this in the Thunder black and man do I turn heads on this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome ride I cannot get over just how great this bike looks, even sitting still. It's an absolute joy to ride and a wonderful commuter. It's not flawless by any means, the stock seat is one of the most uncomfortable things I've sat on and the stock exhaust leaves much to be desired, but these issues were fixed with aftermarket solutions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome handling and looks amazing I bought this bike a little over a month ago, and I'm so happy with it. It looks amazing and I get compliments everywhere I go. It handles amazing on corners, has lots of power, and is light enough I can push it around with no issues. For reference I'm 5'4" tall and I had to order handlebars for it because the stock ones I find are to far forwards for my height, but otherwise the bike is very comfortable for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my bike so much! I absolutely am in love with my motorcycle. I am a 5’3” woman so it is hard to find a bike that is short enough for me, but this is perfect. The colors are gorgeous and it is so fun to ride, I never want to stop. My only complaint is that there is no gas gauge but I have gotten in the habit of using my trip to keep track of when I need to fill up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bike. Hard to find accessories. Awesome bike. It’s my first motorcycle and I do love it. Reason for my 4 star is it’s been very hard to find simple upgrades and accessories for it. I ordered handlebars and can’t find extensions cable kits. I tried upgrading seat but apparently this new year doesn’t fit a lot of seats for previous years. Indian website is pretty much sold out of everything all the time. I was looking forward to tricking out my bike and hoping it be a lot easier then this but it’s not. My buddy has an iron 883 and he has zero problems finding accessories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s a super bike to MOD It’s a super bike to MOD. So let’s start with the cons. The seat the stock seat .I refer to it as A one cheek seat. 20 miles and it is not comfortable to sit on anymore The stock exhaust well it did not stay stocked very long. I drilled out the first plug in the baffle. And then the second plug . Was not happy with that . And cut it in half . For a modded look . In the stock form the pipes hang out past the rear wheel . I was still not happy with the look I felt they were too big around. So I put some GP shorties on it for the look I like. The seat was replaced I have a spring rod tractor seat now. And you only get about 100 miles out of a tank before the light starts blinking and it’s going to hold about 3 gallons. That’s not very good fuel mileage. Now for the pro’s this is a fantastic bike to mod a lot of things Bolt on which makes it easy to remove things that you don’t want like the rear fender that will soon be gone . The bike has a fair amount of power and runs respectively stock form . He handles very well for a bike with a fat tire on the front . It’s quite number but not swirly like riding a moped

Was not excited about most bikes and then I rode the iIndian Chief Dark Horse. I never rode an Indian before and this bike made me a fan. It was also the professionalism and informativeness of the Indian staff that made this a great experience. My next bike will be an Indian.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ride! I'm really thinking about purchasing this motorcycle. I get a lot more motorcycle for the money with Indian than with Harley. Great power, smooth ride on the highway and on the back Hill Country roads. I've been shopping for a motorcycle for the past 3 months. Most dealers are very aggressive. I loved the laid back..."let the bike do the talking" approach from the staff at Mission City Indian Motorcycle. Lots of options to meet my style and performance needs! What else is left to say?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great powerplant I really liked the bikes handling and power plant. Thunderstroke is a great engine. The only thing I wish Indian would do is make a more stripped down version similar to main competitor models. Also with more modern styling as an option. That would bring weight down and definitely make me upgrade from mu Victory Octane. I am looking for a bigger model to upgrade in near future and hope Indian will bring such a motorcycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Test Ride of the Chief Dark Horse® I was stopping by to pick up some parts for my bike and noticed that the had a Demo event going on. So on my way out I walked by to see what they had brought. I've always been a fan of the Dark Horse bikes. The old school look with some nice high tech features. I took the test drive and was not disappointed. It throttled up nicely and felt solid. It takes the curves rather well. I like this particular model mostly because of the no frills, basic look. Even though they have plenty of accessories that you can put on. For me, I like it just the way it is. When I wear out my current bike I plan on getting one of these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Motorcycle I really enjoyed demoing this bike. I was especially impressed with its slow speed handling. Most other big bikes feel awkward turning around in a parking lot, but the Indian was confidence inspiring. Out on the road it was very smooth and developed power right from idle. No need to rev this bike even to 5000 rpm. If I had any complaint it was the heat from the motor sitting at traffic lights. But, hey! this bike was built for the open road.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bike I've Ever Owned I bought this bike back in November. I've always been a Harley rider. I was in the market for a new bike and just couldn't pass up the deal Youngblood PS offered me. I ordered the stage 1 setup with some of the money I saved compared to what I was expecting. Man, it sure has a lot of torque in those lower gears, but there's so much power throughout the range. I can't believe how well it handles...just point and go. It doesn't feel like a 750 lb bike. Everybody at the dealership, especially George and Dakota worked with me on the deal making sure I got just what I wanted. As long as bikes like this are being made I'll never go back to Harley.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bike and Better Staff! During a quick family trip to New Mexico my twin brother and I noticed the local Indian dealership had a demo day. Being avid bike enthusests from upstate NY we couldn’t pass on the opportunity to experience New Mexico on our favorite means of transportation! The sign up was quick and easy and they even let our wife’s ride with us! We were able to sample several bikes with the amazing staff of Albuquerque, Indian dealership! They even took us on a personal tour ride to ensue we were able to experience an additional bike without our limited amount of time! We can’t thank the guys of Albuquerque Indian dealership for being so welcoming to a couple guys looking to get the most out of and opportunistic moment with our wife’s! We will absolutely be looking at the Indian line for our next bikes!

Indian Springfield
Starting at $22,499 US MSRP
2022 Indian Springfield Maroon Metallic / Crimson Metallic is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 369.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Motorcycle This is a beautiful bike with Indian like contours. I like the burgundy/titanium colors and the aesthetics get you noticed on the road. It has some touring features, yet considered a bagger, which I do like the large size hard bags with FOB locking mechanism. Nice tip over bars to protect the bike and the passenger side has its own floor boards. It is comfortable and very easy to ride/maneuver on the open road and on mountain curves such as Colorado. Quite practical, and the handlebars and floor board allows you to be seated in a very relaxed position. Nice size leather seat for good comfort and support. Suspension is also great. It has nice tires with TPS and it also has an anti-lock brake system. The Thunder Stroke 111 engine is outstanding, it has a significant amount of torque and is quite impressive. The display, both analog and digital are nice included features. With the three optional riding modes, you have choices for when in the city and on the highway and varying on the riding mode, you get to feel the difference. This is my fourth bike, yet first Indian and must say I am impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size for a female my size! I owned a Vintage Chief for a few years. I loved the bike so much for touring and long distance, however my lifestyle changed a bit, and this bike proved a bit too big and heavy for me. After a few demo rides on the Scout and Bobber, I jumped on the Springfield. This was the perfect size for me. I'm 5'6", med to heavy build. Some of the other bikes had a long reach for my legs or arms, so I did not ride these. I realize they can be adjusted, this is just what was available at the time. These Indian bikes have the perfect balance, and are extremely comfortable to ride. The Springfield, to me, was a bit more compact and very manageable to ride.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent bike...but I bought this 2017 Springfield new in February 2018. After riding it 7500 miles I feel I can make a honest evaluation of the bike. The looks of the bike are spot on and draws attention and thumbs up everywhere I go. Handling is really good and takes curves like a smaller bike weighing much less. It has lots of power especially in mid range. Sound is great once you install some slip on pipes. Excessive heat from the catalytic converter was unbearable for me. There are aftermarket options to overcome this. Wind buffeting behind the windshield is a problem but fork wind deflectors help. I sometimes remove the windshield and ride with a full face helmet. This is like having another bike to choose from. Warranty has covered a cracked windshield and a bad voltage regulator. This bike has a lot of good things going for it and over all I like and enjoy the bike. But... the one thing I really don't like about the Thunderstroke engine is the excessive valve train noise from 1800 to 2500 rpm. This is where the engineers let something pass that they should have eliminated in the beginning. Using the windshield holds this noise around your head and is irritating to me. I guess between loud pipes and earplugs I will live with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I enjoyed the guided ride. I enjoyed the guided ride, but I did find it not being able to see the front wheel or fender at all distracting. Also the distance from the ground to the footboards I find higher than on my heritage Softail. I like the speedometer and all the information available on that face. Being honest with you I do not think that I will be purchasing an Indian. I am sort of disappointed about that because I have a friend that has five or six old Indians and he swears by them .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Exhilaration I've had my 2017 Springfield for 29 months now and have 23,500 miles on her. And all that in Utah with our limited riding seasons. Great bike. I'd like to have five different bikes in the garage for whatever mood I might be in on a particular day, but that's not possible; so, versatility was the key for me. With the removable windshield and hard bags, in a moment I can head out on a sleek muscle cruiser; yet with everything thing on, I have a worthy cruiser. I think it's extremely important to really ask yourself why you ride or are wanting to ride in the first place. For me, it's the freedom, if I needed to use just one word. It's the sensation of floating or flying and just forgetting all of the demands of this world that seem to be pressing in every day. This bike is worth every penny. And my wife has learned to love the fresh perspective that I come home with after a ride. One final thought: you hear some express concerns over the weight. If all you do is sit on this bike at a dealership, it will seem a bit heavy; but I seem to remember women feeling the same way about big SUVs in the 90s before actually driving and learning that you could practically steer them with one finger. It's not heavy, and you need to actually ride this awesome bike. Lastly, you hear some talk about the heat, especially off of the rear cylinder. I ride in Utah where summer temperatures routinely push over 100 degrees. I've been on this bike in stop-and-go traffic in those temps. Do I feel the heat? Yes. It's a classic American v-twin. But is it painful, or unbearable? No. I can only say that if you use either one of these as a sole criterion for not buying this bike, that would be a real shame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built, very smooth ride, good power The Springfield is very nice. It rides very well on rougher roads. Has plenty of power and the electronics tell the rider everything they need to know. I don't sit as low in the bike as my current bike, so I was a little less comfortable. I think a driver backrest would help with the comfort, although overall I was comfortable during the test ride. Overall, I great bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good power and handling. I was surprised by the power and ease of riding this bigger cruiser. I am not used to forward controls but quickly learned to manage.

Indian Springfield Dark Horse
Starting at $23,499 US MSRP
2022 Indian Springfield Dark Horse Black Smoke is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 172.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is truly a great machine~! I've had this bike (2018) for a year now, and at just over 12,500 miles, I think I can finally give an honest and accurate review. In brief, I'm still thrilled with it. Very comfortable (max. miles per day so far is 841) and so easy to handle for a cruiser; I rented a road king while in Denver, and I was so happy to get back to my SDH I just cannot express! I rode from Minnesota to Louisiana last month and truly enjoyed the trip. I typically ride to work and back as well. In fact, in the last 5 months I've been on the bike all but 12 days. Just a couple observations though - it is burning a little oil, which distresses me because I took such OCD-like pains to follow the break-in procedure accurately. Really - I did. However, it's only about a pint every 1,000 miles and oil is cheap. Also, a quicker throttle response would be nice; the power is definitely there, but one really has to roll the throttle to tap it. I tested a new Roadmaster, and the "sport mode" response is exactly what this bike needs. I prefer the '18 styling to the '19-20...who thought that all of the gloss black paint belonged on a flat black dark horse??? As in so many other Indian reviews, I'll mention how many comments I field on a routine basis - people love this bike.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to like this bike... I test rode a Springfield and the ergonomics did not work at all for me (I'm 5'10"). My knees felt like they were pushing into my chest when I had my feet resting on the floorboards and it also sorely needed a heel shifter (did I just not see it?). The top of the windshield was directly in my line of sight and I experienced intense buffeting above 35mph to the point that it was very uncomfortable. The speedometer is way too low on the tank so I had to look down to check the display which takes my eyes off of the road. I'll stick with my Scout. It may not have the size and weight that would be ideal for long slab rides but I can stretch out, see my speedo without lowering my head and ride buffeting-free until above 70mph.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2019 Springfield Darkhorse I took one of these out today on a demo ride. It was outfitted with probably the tallest ape hangers Indian offers (unlikely aftermarket on a demo bike) as they were definitely more than shoulder height on me. I had it in sport mode which definitely provided plenty of pep in its step partnered with at least the Stage 1 exhaust and high flow air cleaner (unsure if had Stage 2 cams). No complaints, smooth ride, plenty of power, and no faring blocking the road ahead of me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Demo days test ride I was very curious about this bike. I have a Victory Cross Roads Classic and this is basically what my bike became after the production stop of Victory. The bike was the most comfortable of the 3 that I demoed; Roadmaster, Chieftain LTD, and Springfield. The seat was a bit further back than the other 2 giving me more leg room so I didn't feel as cramped, although still not as much room as my Victory. I would have to go with an extended reach seat to be more comfortable. I also wasn't happy with the position of the instrument cluster. It was positioned to far down on the fuel tank so in order to see it I had to look down and take my eyes off the road to see it. Having it mounted higher on the tank, or as a gauge between the handle bars would be a better spot for it. That way just a quick glance will give you everything you need to see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This bike has tons of power and torque Took part in the demo ride and this beast was one of the first I got to ride, it is in my top three with the other being the classic and the roadmaster.

Chieftain
Starting at $22,499 US MSRP
2022 Chieftain Black Metallic is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 671.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2020 Chieftain 116 Nice riding bike. easy to maneuver. Light feeling for it's size. Stereo was a bonus as it's something I have never had on a bike. Features were many and would take some time to get to know how to use them all but that is a plus. You would really not need much except for the speakers in the tops of the side bags. Definitely makes the system sound better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing power I currently ride a Kawasaki Vulcan 900, the added power of the Chieftain was nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great power, easy to ride Took several test rides and found the Chieftain to be the bike for me. Even at almost 900 pounds it didn't feel as heavy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Snappy Test ride the 116 in Ignacio, great throttle response in sport mode. Not setup for a 6'3" guy. But fun none the less. Bike seems to run hot, the seat on the chieftain got hot, the Roadmaster was better. Not so hot. And slot more room on the Roadmaster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ride with cool features Great ride. For its size, it definitely seemed a little on the heavy size, but it was a great, stable ride. The sound was quite good on the stereo system. Navigation was very nice. This may be my next bike ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really does the job. Road other V-Twin for 33 years and metric bikes before that, when looking for a new bike I road the different models numerous times, then road the other brand, kept coming back to the Chieftain. Very satisfied with the ride, handling, and ease of operation. Nit-pics

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of great features, smooth power. This was a test ride only. I have a dual sport and an adventure bike now. This was my first cruiser style ride. Low center of gravity, easy handling, good power. Short test ride so I did not get to work all the accessories. This ride has me seriously considering a new Chieftain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised! I test rode this bike while at Sturgis and was immediately in love. I currently rode a H-D Heritage Softail, so I was expecting to feel quite different on this bike. I was immediately comfortable and was surprised that I was almost immediately more comfortable on it than my own bike! My only regret is that I’m not able to buy one right now, but will be in the near future for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice ride Great riding bike overall. Rear suspension was a little stiff and still a lot of heat under the seat from the motor, should be vented better. Controls were easily accessible and bike had plenty of power

Loved the ability to select between Tour, Standard, & Sport modes... Loved the touch screen... The only drawback was that I felt a little cramped... i currently ride a Victory Cross Country w/ plenty room to streach out...But, as I understand a change out of the seat should fix that...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful but less than expected I took a new dark horse with the 116 big bore kit for a test ride and it was nice. It had a noticeable difference in power from my 111 Roadmaster Classic but I kinda expected a little more. Nevertheless it was still a nice ride.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice ride First time on a Indian. Been looking to purchase one in the near future. Overall ride was good. Great power and handling. I'm 6'2, so it was a bit cramped for me. The glass didn't go high enough to keep my head from getting hammered around. I think a taller glass, lowers and the longer seat would fit perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice ride Nice ride, but not having a water cooled engine seems archaic to me. And for the price point you can get a water cooled touring bike. With even more features

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Honest review The chieftain I was offered to demo,had a stage two kit installed. The throttle was to sensitive. and the exhaust was to loud. However I kept those things at bay as I rode. Vibrations were very minimal. Transmission shifting I would say very close to a goldwing. Steering with the fairing was very light and effortless. Wind deflection very good. Reaching for the kickstand was almost impossible while seated on bike it was to far forward.That break pedal is two small for the reach a car type would be better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Ride already own a 2017 springfield , really like this bike and thought i would like to try a chieftain classic . Surprisingly a very different ride and refined fuel delivery on the new bike .Throttle and transmission seem much smoother on the 2019 chieftain
Date published: 2019-07-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chieftain This bike was a great ride, sound system was awesome and the driving modes made this bike great to ride. The switch between touring and sport mode was amazing. One dislike is the seating position. Feet are too far forward and no heel shifter standard. During test ride had to stretch my foot to reach the shifter. Unfortunatly this bike is not for me but was a nice ride plenty of power and the sound system was amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 116 I own a 17 chieftain, I wanted to try out with the 116, and mid rise bars. For me I didn't care for the mid rise, the 116 is nice but for the type of riding I do, I don't think I'd spend the money. I like my bikes design better than the 2019, The 19s look to much like a Harley(not ditching Harleys, just like the differences).

Chieftain Dark Horse

2022 Chieftain Dark Horse Black Smoke is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 412.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our new Ruby! We bought Ruby in October. Jay and his team were excellent to deal with. Thank goodness the weather improved enough that we got to put a few kilometres on before the snow hit. The bike is absolutely perfect! I can’t wait until we can ride again in the spring.

The monoshock, 116 cubic inches and features are phenomenal. Can't say enough about how much fun this bike is to ride. Ease of use and handling make it just as fun on the strait aways as it is in the curves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Near perfection! I had a brand new Street Glide ordered, and thankfully, there was a delay with the delivery which gave me time to check out some reviews on line. They kept comparing it to the Street Glide, and the Chieftain kept coming out on top. I test rode both, back to back the next day, and there was no question in my mind. I canceled the Harley, and bought the Indian. Very happy with my decision - I love the bike!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first sight I waited 30 years to find the bike of my dreams. And when it came time to make that choice in July, the 2020 Indian Cheiftain Dark Horse was that bike. It has 100% 116 Thunder Stoke power, sounds great, ridiculous looks and is a super comfortable ride whether I am on a long trip or a short commute to the grocery store. I am blessed to find her and will never let her go.

Most uncomfortable seat I’ve ever had. Of course there’s no way I could have test ridden it long enough to know this. If so I wouldn’t have bought it. The mustang seat on the VTX I traded was so comfy I could ride from fillup to fillup painlessly.

Chieftain Limited
Starting at $27,999 US MSRP
2022 Chieftain Limited Silver Quartz Metallic is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 243.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astectically Pleasing I bought the Chieftain Limited in December of 2019 and from its astectically pleasing good looks to the raw power it has been the best purchase of my lifetime this far.
Date published: 2020-02-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bagger ever! I'm comparing the Chieftain to an HD Ultra Classic Limited (2012), 2004 Honda Goldwing and 2013 Victory Cross Country Tour. It obviously lacks storage and heated grips. Wind/rain protection is reduced because it has no lowers. However, the power is better than the 103 (and it's cooler to the rider), it's power is on par with the GW and Vic. It's low speed and high speed handling are better than all 3 other bikes. It's ride isn't as plush as the Vic and GW, but light years better than the HD. Fit and finish are almost as good as the HD, but much better than the other 2. Overall I'm very happy with the Chieftain!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate motorcycle I purchased my motorcycle approximately 2 months ago trading in another brand. I have had the first service completed and have been in various traffic conditions. Freeways to country roads and the motorcycle has performed flawlessly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Demo Ride Bad News for the Chiefsin The e-mail went out from my local BMW dealer ( who will be carrying the Indian line September/19) to test the 2019 Chieftain Limited. I thought , why not see how this machine stacks up against my BMW K1600B. While most demo rides are short and really don’t give you the “ full feel” for the bike the 30 minutes in the saddle gave me some immediate concerns. Engine performance: the Chieftain vibrates miserably at 4000 rpm’s!! I know there are vast differences between a six cylinder and a v-twin but come on this is way too much. Engine heat: the 30 minute produced a lot of it and was reminiscent of my ST1300. I wasn’t a fan of the ergonomics but to be fair to the Chieftain a longer prolonged ride would be needed to properly evaluate the controls. The K 1600 B is safe in my garage and has proven to be the far superior machine.I didn’t investigate price point but if they are close the BMW will give you a far better ride, better technology ,engine performance.and more options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Ride. Great handling and power to spare. Had an Indian scout for 4 years. It is still my favorite motorcycle but I wanted something with a little better ride quality as my back gets some pain from jolts. I took the Challenger for a test ride and hit bumps that caused me issues just days before. No issue on the Challenger. Also was and still am surprised at how well it handles, shifts, and rides. It was kinda the total package for me. The weight of the bike has been my only issue and it just takes getting use to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bike Traded in a Road King Classic for the Challenger and haven't looked back. Handles awesomely, awesome stereo. Downside, I really don't like the clutch. Takes some getting use to after the Road King, once it warms up it runs great, no heat issues when stuck in traffic, I have never felt my thighs trying to fry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the base model I’ve owned the bike for a little more than a month now and it is awesome. It has the best stock seat of any motorcycle I’ve owned. It is the best performing bagger I’ve ever ridden. It has the best stock features of any base model on the market. The sound system is great, the performance and comfort beat anything else I’ve ridden. I like the power windshield and the driving modes. Recent bikes I’ve owned: Harley, Victory Vegas, Victory Cross Roads

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Motorcycle I own my Challenger for about 2 1/2 months now, and I have accrued about 3,400 miles in that time. I find this model to be nearly perfect in every aspect. The brakes are stellar- perfectly balanced and effective. The acceleration is phenomenal, smooth with a perfectly linear torque curve that never seems to end. The suspension is perfect, it’s adjustments are very responsive and the settings are excellent. The handling of this bike would lead you to believe you are riding a bike much lighter than what you really are. It feels like a sport bike in many ways, acceleration, braking, and handling. It is an amazing machine. Very well executed design by Polaris. You can see they really put their heads together in designing and building this bike. Fit and finish is excellent. Paint finish is excellent. I am very, very happy I crossed over from Harley Davidson and bought this bike. If I had anything negative to say, it would be that the throttle response ( throttle body) needs a little better engineering, as it is sometimes choppy and the engine runs a bit rough at times. To be fair, the bike has improved in this area the more I put miles on it. I expected some bugs with a new model, which this bike definitely has, but none of these minor issues would persuade me from buying another one immediately. I can not recommend this bike enough to anyone considering buying one. You will be happier than you could ever expect. Well done, Polaris! I’m looking forward to buying another one when I wear this one out!! I am looking forward to adding accessories as they become more available as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal piece of machinery I purchased a base model challenger in mid-July and have been riding it near non-stop since. The bike is head and shoulders above it's competition. The power delivery is absolutely perfect, the styling is striking and unique, and Indian made seemingly all of the upgrades of the Dark Horse and Limited models available to the Base model which is a tremendous plus for anyone looking to modify their machine at their own pace.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs a little tweaking The bike runs great 99 % of the time but has a slight lag or misfire issue . I was told my bike had all the factory recalls fixed, misfire & throttle body synchronized . I have added new mufflers and still have the issue . I'm going to make an appointment to have it checked .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beast I watched for this motorcycle from the thoughts of it to the point that it was put into production. I made my purchase right after my birthday and have loved every mile put on it. It's smooth, it's strong, and to put it plainly, A BEAST. Probably will go down as the best v-twin bagger ever made and will have a long run in production. I personally LOVE IT!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bagger remained !!! I have had this bike for over a month and driven for over a 1000 miles. I switched from a Harley Road king and couldn't be any happier. A 800+ pound bike feels light and easy to handle. Power plus engine is just amazing. Power when you need it makes passing a breeze. Highly recommend it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power house, throttle rocking, nimble wild horse. This motorcycle has many attributes that are amazing. but out of the many motorcycles I had the pleasure of riding i don’t believe I had a bigger smile and uplifting feeling that gets you pumped and relaxes the mind like this bike! I traded in a victory Vegas 8ball and love the power plant on it and the equilibrium of the bike. And riding the challenger it doesn’t disappoint. Well balanced and plenty of power!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2020 Indian Challenger I bought my Challenger on July 3, 2020 from Indian Motorcycle of Oklahoma City. They are a excellent dealership to work with and have treated me like family since the day I took ownership. I purchased the Base model Challenger because I loved the color and the price point was right in my budget. I did purchase the Ride Command add on for the weather and traffic overlay that does not come with the Base model. It was around 500.00 extra but well worth it. I followed the break in procedure that was recommended by Indian. I like my new Challenger a lot its has plenty of power and has a terrific ride with the Fox shock suspension. Ive already purchased a few accessories to personalize my bike. Well done Indian, keep up the awesome work..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2020 Indian Challenger I purchased the bike almost 2 months ago now. The bike handles awesome. The engine has an amazing power band and the seat height is great. My only chagrin would be i think there should be more color options.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Base Challenger Bought this bike about a month ago. Happy for the most part. I was a little taken back to find out some of the ride command functions only work if you purchase Navigation. A recent update fixed the issue with the widgets not staying, but you can’t use the features of CarPlay if you don’t have navigation. This is a little disappointing for people who don’t need navigation but would like the benefits of CarPlay. The base model on all Indians with ride command should have the same capabilities without paying extra other than for the actual navigation maps. It really bugged me that I paid extra to install a garage door opener only to find out the widget disappeared every time I shut down. People with nav were fine. It took an update to fix that. Hopefully Indian will do the right thing and update CarPlay to allow use without nav. Other than those two issues I absolutely love the Challenger. Many mods installed, many more to go!

Indian Challenger Dark Horse
Starting at $28,999 US MSRP
2022 Indian Challenger Dark Horse Black Smoke is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 176.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ride I purchased this bike in September and have traveled almost 2000 miles since. I had a 2018 Chieftain Dark Horse that I really enjoyed and had over 21000 miles on but traded for the Challenger and couldn't be more impressed. The ride is fantastic and eats up the miles. I was nervous because of how much I enjoyed my Chieftain but I have no doubts now. I can now keep up with my dad and his friends on their Goldwings with fuel economy and I personally think the performance is better than them as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2020 Indian Challenger - best bagger, period! Had all types of bikes. The last few bikes were Harleys (Streetglide, Breakout, 1200Iron) Read about all the great reviews surrounding the new Challenger so I decided to test ride one. I wasn't in the market only because I just purchased my 2019 Street Glide Special and put a bunch of aftermarket items on it. But after my test ride, I was sold. More power, better handling, braking, and smoother power delivery. I traded in my brand new 2019 on the spot for the 2020 Challenger. Took it home that very same day and never looked back. The recent King of the Baggers race at Laguna Seca was a testament to this bikes power and handling when it went up against Harley with larger engines. Indian is definitely headed in the right direction. I hope they continue this path and dominate once again. Special thanks to Indian Motorcycle of White Plains. Excellent staff and excellent service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bagger made bought the challenger dark horse in September! Price was better than Harley, while the speed and power also crushes the road glide! The sports mode is well worth the purchasing the bike itself and the comfortably along with the features makes this bike perfect for all road desires

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bike I've ever rode. I bought this Bike about 5 weeks ago. Every time I get on it, I feel like I did when I got my first bike. Power, torque, fun factor, and comfort all in one bike. I've been on many HD's and Indians. This one hits all the right buttons for me. Ride command is awesome, and the bike feels as light as my old Street Bob. I recommend this bike if you are a skilled rider. If you are not, don't put it in sport mode..lol.
