2022 Scout Sixty Black Metallic is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 490.
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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really REALLY nice bike My second bike. Rode a Kawasaki 500 for 8 years, wanted a "bigger" bike. Wrestled with all the options, settled on the 60. I love it. Its fast, its nimble, it's not a "girls bike" or a "starter bike". This is a legit cruiser. I have gotten so many compliments on its looks. It is an absolute blast to ride. Super quick but balanced. If you're considering one, get one!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome power I love the way this thing handles I went from a 780 pound bike to this one and at less than 550 pounds it handles like a race bike and explosive power just an amazing bike

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect motorcycle This is a motorcycle, as opposed to a computer with wheels and an engine. I am specifically trying to get away from gadgets and the Scout 60 is perfect to accomplish that goal in the motorcycle world. The Scout 60 is responsive, stable and easy to handle.for this 70 year old rider.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, “sport cruiser”? Since the brand came out under Polaris, I have been really interested in the Indian motorcycles. They look great (to me), the reviews are great and after taking a test ride I was hooked. Mine came with slip on mufflers and before taking delivery I asked the finance guy if there was any room in my approval for a tuner or intake. Fortunately, there was and the parts guy, who was very knowledgeable about all the products I mentioned, suggested the Indian brand performance intake. To my surprise it comes with a computer flash and really sounds and performs great. I am not a big fan of loud exhaust, in fact I really don't like people that rev their engines for no reason. That being said, when I wind this scout sixty up from a stop and whip through the gears close to the rev limiter, it sounds monstrous! It also gets me where I’m going with haste (Its quick!). I wouldn’t say this bike is fast because a non fairing bike is only as fast as you can put up with holding on against the wind. For me not wanting to struggle against the wind keeps me from potentially running into some legal issues. It does however get to 100mph without issue and quickly. I don’t know how much of this is attributed to the slip on exhaust, better intake and tune, but I’m sure it didn’t hurt. I have not figured out exactly what the top speed is, but without fairings and an open stretch if road, I don’t really want to. I live at the base of the rocky mountains, just below Estes Park and the road up and down the mountain seem to be what this bike was made for. The pegs are forward and high enough that they don't scrape. The engine has plenty of power and I actually love the low riding position (I’m 6’1). I am often tempted to shift my body and drag a knee (I haven’t yet, but seriously its fun on the twisty bits with the engine revving with the occasional growl and roar shifting gears out of a corner)! Perhaps the coolest thing about this bike is the classy look, to me its the ability to haul my posterior up the steepest part of the mountain at 80mph (8000 ft elevation) with my fat posterior in tow. The “parts guy” mentioned that the benefit of the Indian air intake and performance tune is that it more easily adjusts to Elevation change (pretty drastic in my situation) as other systems omit the O2 sensors and can mess up fueling and how well the bike runs with elevation change. I wish it came with bags and a cell phone holder, but there are always the next paycheck or two and the aftermarket to take care of that. Until then, I will be wearing a backpack and shoving my cell phone between my crotch and the seat. So the cell phone reminded me of the only thing I don’t like about the bike because the only time I can look at my phone (gps) is at a dead stop. Occasionally, when at a stop, I will shift it down to first gear from neutral and it will go into gear with a bit of a clunk. The only other bike I have ridden that did that was a Harley Fat Boy, except the fat boy did it in every gear. Maybe it has something to do with the characteristics of belt drive, but chain driven bikes and shaft driven bikes I’ve ridden in the past never seemed to do this. With the first gear clunk aside, this bike is awesome. Oh yeah, the other thing I don’t like about the bike has less to do with the bike and more to do with financing it. I will just say that it is best to save up and buy it with cash, because your $9,000 bike turns into $12,000 financed real quick with taxes and all that bologna. Thats true with every bike though. I have only had the bike for a total of 4 days, two of which were work days and I have easily put 500 miles on it. Luckily for me, I bought this bike on consignment and the original owner only put 750 miles on it. That was a good thing, because the first service is due at 500 miles (performed at the dealership before I signed for the bike) and the second somewhere in the 3,000 or 5,000 miles, I’m not sure which. Anyway, I love the bike, whats not to love? Its a sporty cruiser, made in America, pound for pound one of the best cruisers ever made, and it puts a smile on your face going to the store, granted you’ll have to do it with a back pack, but smiles like a kid with his backpack on the last day of school.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and easy to handle I did the test ride on Ruby Red Scout 60. I thought the engine sounded great, the power it offered was more than enough for the type of riding you would do on a smaller cruiser bike. This bike had some options for shorter riders on it, but it was the only Scout 60 they had it seemed. I really like the red paint too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bike and comfortable ride! My friends had been bugging me for a year to get a bike and ride with them. I was skeptical as I felt too old to ride a bike being 63 years old. Well last month I finally pulled the trigger and bought a 2019 Indian Scout 60 and I'm having a blast with it. Really comfortable and easy to handle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great engine, wretched ergonomics The 60 handled well for a cruiser, and while it's the smallest engine, it's more than capable. I also rode a Bobber. The riding position absolutely sucked on both though=much worse on the Bobber. With your feet so far forward, all your weight is on your butt, and that saddle is atrocious. Within five minutes I wanted off. And that was the 60. On the bobber I felt like a "C" clamp. That riding position is absolutely evil. And that's too bad. It bends into corners nicely (as long as you don't lean too far . . . .), accelerates nicely, and has great brakes. It could be a great bike, but all the fabulous engineers' efforts pale behind the idiot who designed the seat and riding position. Just for background, I've put about 200K miles on various bikes since I got back into riding in 2004. I've currently got a Kawasaki W650, a Suzuki DRz-400, a BMW R75/5, a BMW R1100S, and a BMW R1150GS. Last summer I qualified for the BMW 100K mile award.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bike I really enjoyed this bike. Light, low seat height and plenty of power for anyone on this type of bike. Front brakes could use a little more power and lighter pull but not really any problem.
Date published: 2019-06-06
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not geared for hilly terrain Live in north central WV and wouldn’t buy this bike. Riding this bike up mountains would require the rider to spend more time shifting from 4th to 6th and back again. Also disappointed with the lack of power it had as compared to the standard Scout. This bike would probably be good for mostly flat terrain

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Bike After a lifetime of riding leaking,rattling,vibrating,loud,no brakes,no lights motorcycles. This bike is a joy. Feels and handles lighter than it is. Is very powerfull but Quiet. Brakes are great. Only things I dont like about it are,no place to store registration or anything when bags arent on it. No provision to lock it up,no fork lock, and the seat is not very comfortable after 40 miles or so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit for me I went from a very heavy and bulky Vstar Deluxe 1300 to my Indian Scout. I am a very small frame person but with long legs. The Vstar was too heavy for me and because of health reasons I was no longer able to hold it up. I tried the Scout and it was like riding a feather. I don't struggle with this bike. I don't feel like I am fighting the bike. I absolutely love this bike. I was amazed at the power it has. I worried I was giving up power by going to a smaller bike but I was very wrong. The Scout has so much more pep and horse power than the Vstar did!!!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful bike , right bike for me. Got about 300 miles on it. One thing is riding position. I have reduced reach handlebars which are still a little short ,need another 2 inches or so. I like my back to be straight. Going for another handlebar which should do it. Keep in mind I am 5 foot 10 inches tall. Go figure. Besides that the bike is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great bike for an older short rider. I loved my 2015 Chieftain but after turning 74 I started thinking that a lighter motorcycle might be the way to go. I couldn’t be happier with my 2019 Scout ABS. Nimble and powerful are two words that come to mind. The Deepwater Blue is a great color. I look forward to riding my Scout as much as I did my Chieftain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from COVID did it! Blame it on COVID. Couldn't get a haircut and needed some where to self isolate. For me at 5' 11" and 200 lb, and reasonably fit at 71, just had to get out of the house and live a little. Paid up and got the last new one they had in stock. Made the rifht choice for me. It fits me very well. Very responsive to my inputs. Almost too much power for the way I live today; could have chosen the Scout '60 maybe. Fine fit and finish. Feels compact, almost stuffed in and with the low cg it's become easy to learn again to tip it in and manage it at low speeds. Got this over the Bobber as it will take accessories the Bobber can't. Slowly getting these add-ons as I need them. Rode the Harley Sportster and a Motoguzzi V9 but this won out first time I sat on it. I was thinking of an older restored Norton 750. Buddy has one. He tinkers a lot and knows what to do. I don't and can't. Decided on new, warranty, FI, low maintenance. Also I have a leg that won't bend like it used to. That sold me on the Indian; its riding position and with a low seat height, I've got all the strength/leverage my knee will give me ready to go and it won't stiffen up after an hour. Rode road Triumphs in the'70's, was a boon docker dirt biker and then a trial's rider. But 40 years later, it's like starting again. I ride it the same way I drive my classics. Good weather, no rain in the forecast, not too far and not too fast (have changed that a bit). Interesting when I get through the garage door and look for the ride for the day how often I choose the Indian over any classic. I'm having another mid-life crisis and I'm loving it. Oh, 'all the gear, all the time!' and thanks to the You Tube videographers who make it easy to get back in the sport.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bike! I have wanted an Indian motorcycle since I was a kid and I am thrilled to see what Polaris has done with the brand. They've done everything right and continue to improve year to year. My 2020 Scout ABS was built for me, from the handle bars to the forward pegs, it is a great fit and a comfortable ride. The attention to detail that has been put into this build is easily seen, even from a distance. It has the power to pass when needed, sounds great and looks like the Indian cruiser it was designed to be. I just can't say enough positive things about the Indian Scout ABS. I am really enjoying this bike and I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HD to Indian As a lifelong harley rider, and still an avid fan I made the switch from a Classic cruiser to a new Indian Scout. Overall, one word, "Amazing" Fit and finish- superb, handling- awesome, look- classic and retro. I know this might seem a bit trite, but shifting from 1st to neutral is precise and positive, unlike my previous ride which was cumbersome to find neutral. This just shows me engineering excellence, all the way down to the little details. Great job.

Scout Bobber
Starting at $12,249 US MSRP
2022 Scout Bobber Black Metallic is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 659.
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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2021 Scout Bobber 20 I bought this new bike about 6 weeks ago and am quite pleased with it. The Bobber 20 is a great addition to my collection. In the past I had a V Twin cruiser and a luxurious touring 2 wheeler. Currently own a very nice 3 wheeler but missed the feel of a 2 wheels. I did quite a bit of research and decided on the Scout Bobber 20 and have not been disappointed. The bike does what it was designed for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bike, only one issue So I love the bike, I’ve made the mods I was planning on as well, so even better. It’s a great ride for day trips, and even some reasonable king hauls. Comfort is what I expected, so pleased with that. Only issue I have is the check engine light comes on randomly, and the gear selector goes blank when it does. Luckily I’m use to not having a gear selector but still concerning that the check engine is on and the dealership can’t seem to find out why. Not really a good answer in my opinion. 5 start of it wasn’t for the weird abs frequent check engine issue. I don’t like unexplained engine flags. Stick exhaust is average, but I changed that out

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mid size bike I bought this as a second bike to have something a little smaller and easier to ride around town than my larger touring bike. It's fun and nimble with enough power to still have fun. The bars and forward controls are a bit too stretched out for me, but I like the look of the bars, so I wish there was an OEM mid controls option. I will probably throw taller bars on to help with some back strain. For anyone buying one, get a better seat off the bat as the stock one is rough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Time Bike Owner-Scout Boobber I have never owned a motorcycle before and at 50yrs old decided to purchase a brand new Indian Scout Bobber. I worked closely with the Team at Wolf Motorcycles in London Ontario and they helped me with every aspect including getting a tutor to help me learn. I am so impressed with the comfort and ride and have no issues with longer rides and the quality of the bike always impresses me. When I spent a day cleaning it i really saw the attention to detail and quality that they put into it.

Rides calm when you want it to, but gets up and goes when you nees it to! Great all around motorcycle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome bike! Had my Scout Bobber for 2 months and have put 800 miles on and this bike is just so much fun to ride. I get compliments on the styling everywhere I go. My only criticisms would be the comfort and the stock sound from the exhaust. Even with the Indian comfort seat, after about an hour of riding my rear starts to really get sore so I might be in for buying an aftermarket seat. As for the sound, there wasn’t much growl to it at all so I drilled out the first set of baffles in the mufflers and it sounds much better, although I will still look into aftermarket pipes. Other than that this bike is really amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Entry Level Crusier That Is So Much More The simplistic styling and the fully blacked out color scheme is what got my attention. I get lots of compliments on the looks of the bike. I come from a super-sport background and was looking for something more comfortable and better for longer rides. The comfort is great, though I plan to upgrade the seat. The bike rides well and is very nimble for a cruiser. I was worried it would not be powerful enough being the smaller of the scouts but the power feels great. I can see myself owning this bike for a long time and not feeling a need to go to a larger model.

Scout Bobber Sixty
Starting at $10,749 US MSRP
2022 Scout Bobber Sixty Black Metallic is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 659.
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

I was worried it would not be powerful enough being the smaller of the scouts but the power feels great. I can see myself owning this bike for a long time and not feeling a need to go to a larger model.

Chief Dark Horse

2022 Chief Dark Horse Black Smoke is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 367.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great experience. Did Daytona demo ride. Really enjoyed it. Just needed a straight run to get thru all the gears. Basically we barely got to 5th gear for a few seconds. Overall great though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Going back to Harley - horrible experience I spent two years waiting to get this Dark Horse. After two weeks of ownership there is more rust on this bike than my H-D had after a full year of riding. The chrome trim was wrinkled the day I bought it and being warrantied along with the gas tank that hadn’t stripped bolts holding it on at purchase. Went to install the black fuel cap set today and found a rust patch the size of a quarter under the faux gas cap. Stage 1 flash was done at the dealer and now every time the bike is started, it stumbles gasping for air and stalls. There’s rust in about 6 exposed holes on the frame, after a trip to the dealer this week I saw all the new ones on the floor had paint in these holes, mine was bare metal and now fully rusted. The fork tube is also being replaced because it had a 3 inch scratch to bare metal at purchase. By the way this bike was to return to Indian as in 2016 I bought a Dark Horse that poured oil all over my garage the day I got it home. Will never buy another Indian and will surely share this experience. I was so impressed with the price of this bike for what I thought I was getting but I guess you get what you pay for. Now I’ll take a loss on this bike....again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dream Bike! :)) I have waited 19 years for my kids to grow old enough to finally purchase my Dream Bike. I really love my Chief Dark Horse. Ride is so smooth and comfortable and torque and acceleration are amazing. Once I am riding, I just don’t want to stop. I can ride for miles. I am 5’11 and the riding position is just perfect. I can praise enough the team of engineers, designers and painters at the Indian factory. You can tell they all take great pride of their jobs. Thank you all for helping me leaving my dream. Now back on the road ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Ride I bought my Darkhorse this year following two years of enjoying my Scout military tribute. I was itching for a little more comfort and size. I moved up to the Darkhorse which was customized as a Bomber and man do I love this bike! The third week I owned it I was off from Longmeadow Massachusetts on my Bomber to Syracuse NY to the flat track races to watch the wrecking crew. Top finishes all the way! A great weekend on the most comfortable and powerful motorcycle in the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kiwi Indian Dark horse Bought my Dark Horse in May 2016 and have loved it ever since. Everyone except my wife knew it was on order, unfortunately the day it tuned up at home i was away on business, so i received a message from my surprised wife to say "your new black baby has arrived and is safe n sound", needless to say this was not the first time a new toy had arrived without her knowledge (or will it be the last). To me Indians have always been the pinnacle of motorcycles, and this bike proves it. I have owned so many bikes over the years, but this one is a keeper. These bikes are so cool in every way Have added a pillion seat, pegs, sissy bar (for the wife, she loves it too), Rinehart mufflers (sounds awesome), Wimmer high flow air intake, mapped and tuned and more recently ape hangers. Still to come are stage 2 cams and Freedom Performance dual headers. Indians are well respected here in New Zealand due to our Kiwi legend Burt Munro (the worlds fastest Indian).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth!! Test rode an Chief Dark Horse and loved it. Besides the fact it's pretty much murdered out it was smooth to ride. The throttle response was nice with out being choppy in 1st gear like my Harley was when I got it. Shifting was nice, not to much work or overly loud like some bikes. And the biggest selling point for me was the suspension. I hit a pothole every bit of six inches deep and about a foot wide, going 25 mph. I barely felt it. And on the highway that engine is a BEAST. 4th gear, 70 mph, and I could still feel I was in the power band and had 2 gears left. Again loved it, can't say enough good things about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big bike smooth to handel I use to own a Harley Davidson Sportster that I traded in for a Victory 8 ball. That was a no brainer....my love for Victory endured through my Divorce and eventually I got rid of my previous 8 ball because of other adjustments in life that came my way. Fast forward 7 years later I started noticing the Indian brand. Nothing is as iconic as the Indian motorcycle. I took note of the Indian Dark horse, did my research and followed my gut. I visited two Indian dealerships but getting approved for a loan was difficult. Finally Music City Indian in Nashville Tennessee came through for me. I flew from NYC to Nashville. Those guys at the dealership were great. They got me on my bike and I took my maiden voyage 925 miles. She got me home and with no regrets. I missed my 8 ball but I have a new love... I encourage anyone looking to purchase an Indian to look into the Dark tribe. This Dark Horse is one ride not to be passed up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ride Ever! I would not own another bike brand. Out of all the motorcycles I have ever got on, my Dark Horse has them all beat. The overall feel of the ride is the greatest, comfort and performance included.

2022 Indian Springfield Maroon Metallic / Crimson Metallic is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 372.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bike I’ve had 10 bikes and my favorite was always my road king, until now. This bike is a road king on steroids. I had to make a few personal changes to the bike, like beach bars and a floor board lowering kit but now it’s as perfect as a bike can be.

Would not recommend at all if your going to have a passenger. It is debilitating pain for at least two days afterwards. We have spent alot money and time and no relief. Depressed I won't be able to ride after all the money to purchase. Don't buy without trying it first at all speeds. At home recovering from short ride yesterday in tears.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice ride I did a demo ride one of these models today at a poker run in Escondido, CA. It was the first time I’d ridden an Indian, I was impressed with the ride and feel of the bike, only issue I could see having is the width of the floor boards, for me they feel a little narrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a seriously versatile and cool ride! I was determined to replace my 2007 Kawasaki Nomad with an Indian Springfield or a H-D Road King. I am a cruiser/bagger rider. This bike felt right and stole my 40 years of riding heart right away. It basically sold itself. It has power and torque to spare, looks great, and handles well. This baby is gonna be with me a while, and she's gonna get a lot of TLC, and see a lot of action. Eventually she will get custom paint because she is worth it. I would like her a little louder, but she growls nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less is more I love this bike overall better ths any Indian I rode at the demo ride in Denton,TX hosted by Big Tex Indian. This bike has no stero, no GPS or fancy fairing. It has a windscreen and is a stylish cruiser/touring bike. It handled like a dream. It sounded just the way it should and for all it's simplicity it was far and away the best bike I rode. When it came down to it, I thought about the bike I rode in on (1999 Suzuki VL1500 LC Intruder C90). You dont miss what you never had. It has always been about the ride and the adventure. No gadgets just you and your motorcycle... That's why this was such a special ride. Everthing you need and nothing you don't.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A few issues I purchased my 2017 Springfield used Nov. 2018. It had been 40 years since I last rode (1970 CB 750 Honda). The weight was intimidating at first, but I adjusted to it. Also, this is a cruiser as opposed to a superbike so it suited my needs better. The engine is noisy (clacker) and the vibration at higher rpm's distracting. I'm looking into the realm of alternative tuning but only if it doesn't interfere with my extended warranty. Steers and handles like a feather, making trips more comfortable. The only concern I have is the front end noise. When I get to cruising speed I pull in the clutch and release the throttle only to hear the metallic sounds emanating from the front wheel. Gonna take a look at the brakes and take off the wheel and inspect the bearing. Other than these issues I love this thing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great feel and smooth. I rode this on a demo day and really enjoyed it. I'm 5'10" and found the wind screen a little short. Power all day but wish they added a tacho so I could know the rev range of this thing. Even with the stock pipes it had a nice throaty sound. I also have 30" inseam and found the running boards a little to far forward. Really liked the bike and only have very minor issues with the fit.

Fell in love with the Springfield the first time I laid eyes on one in Sturgis. 6,500 trouble free wonderful miles without any issues.

Just beautiful bike that rides like no other.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice ride but doesn’t make me “want it”. I demoed the Springfield at the Laughlin River Run. The ride included a very long steep incline of a couple of miles straight up the hill. This taxed my bike excessively. The suspension was a little soft, too, but it handled very well. I really liked the ergonomics. The bars, seat, and foot placement fit me great. I’m 5’8” and usually have to stretch to the bars but not on the Springfield!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Feel This is my first bike. I was a bit nervous, being a brand new rider, to buy such a large bike but it is so balanced and rides well. Having hard bags that lock are a must for a woman. I've had people ask to take pics of my bike and people pull up along side of me to tell me how much they like it. I've been riding it for about a week and have put almost 400 miles on it. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful handling for a bike that size At the bike show in Scottsdale Arizona I took the Springfield for a demo ride. The bike is longer and heavier then any bike I have ever owned or ridden before. Naturally I was a little nervous. Any concerns I had disappeared before I had gone a mile down the road. I thought the bike was beautiful and stylish when I saw it but riding it was a real treat. Balanced, powerful, responsive are some of the words I would use to describe this bike. the bikes size and weigth were not an issue as I was going down the road. I was riding a stock bike and was surprised by the features on the bike. Windshield, cruise control, controls to switch between different styles of riding modes. There were a few things I would add to the bike. A bad back would prompt me to put a different seat with a backrest for the driver and the passenger. Highway pegs and lower add ons for the windshield to reduce the air turbulence as I went down the road. I loved the bike and now am interested in test driving a few more models with the intention of buying one soon. I’m interested in finding out how the other models compare to the Springfield.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Differences This bike was different from my bike in many ways. It just took a little time to get use to. An example is the clutch, the clutch engaged mid release, mine is at the end of the travel. The differences were all minor and just the differences between manufactures. By the end of the demo ride, I had adjusted to the differences. I guess you could say it has its own character.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cramped riding position. Overall the Springfield handles well on the road. Good power in acceleration and braking well, ABS is nice to have. The saddlebags are roomy and I like the automatic locks. However the driving position is very cramped. Floorboards are high, makes my knees stick up way above the tank and the stock seat has me pushed forward to much. I like the handle bar grip position for my hands, very comfortable.
Date published: 2019-03-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic look, modern day quality an ergonomics. Had experience on the Chiftein before, but the Springfield pushes all the right buttons for me. I think is the most balanced product off all the line up. Hard cases no only look better than soft bags, but also adds to protection for your things when you leave the bike parked or bad weather hits you on the road. The windshield offers good wind protection, with out the added weight off the fairing, and all keeping the classic look. Is the perfect blend of look and confort!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy and stylish I rode the Springfield Dark Horse about twenty miles total at a demo day. I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to handle and by the effortless power. I've ridden plenty of Harleys as well and the Indian is a better ride by far. The suspension soaked up bumps and the bike actually seems happy to go around corners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing motorcycle! That bike it’s just amazing. From comfortability to horse power, all numbers are way high. The bike is a silent monster. You feel like you pretty much own the road. It’s definitely a bike to enjoy the ride.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of Power! Great bike. Surprised by the power and handling of this bike. Not as hot as my 2016 Roadking. But, cant give it 5 stars as the paint choices are all pretty boring.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth and powerful. I love the smoothness of the engine. The seat height is very good. But the bike feels big and unwieldy at slow speeds - more so than my Harley Fat Boy Lo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bike...with some small drawbacks I have had my 2018 Indian Springfield Dark Horse for about 10 months now. I absolutely love the look of the flat black bike and feel it has the right touch of chrome. I'm a bigger guy so I like the overall size of this bike. Fit and finish are excellent. I love the touch of a powder coated frame. Very durable! Kudos for the remote lockable bags. Little annoyances - Tire pressure sensors seem to be an issue... they monitor low on initial startup. Turn bike off and on again and they read correctly (checked against manual gauge). Mine doesn't have different "modes" as it's an 18 model - however, an upgrade on the electronics would be nice Indian! That being said, if you're a short shifter, you'd love this but I feel like power plateaus at 3,000 RPM in first and second. Feels like you run out of steam at 2800 to 3000 RPM and you have to shift to get it moving. This may be addressed with the new "modes" but how about a retrofit for those of us early adopters with the 18 first year model DH?! Wish Indian would have done red dash lighting on the Springfield Dark Horse like they did on the Chief Dark Horse. This is just a "cool factor" thing. Overall this is a superb bike and it feels much lighter to ride than it really is. When you ride this and "feel" it, you really don't get the feel that you're on an 800 lb motorcycle. The engineers did a superb job on that front and honestly I love the suspension on this bike. It has a great amount of travel and makes for a comfortable ride. You will not "clench" up going over potholes, road cracks or railroad tracks. Big plus there! I'd love a little more comfort in the seat for when I'm riding for longer than 3 hours, but that's a normal, and universal, gripe from anyone that rides longer distances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly Nimble for a heavy machine!! I purchased this bike in August of 2018 and I find myself looking outside everyday this winter to make sure it's not snowing so I can ride. The power is a constant strong pull, shifts smooth, throttle by wire is still a little querky for me but I'm sure I will adapt. I have owned 4 V-Twins including '53 Panhead, shovelhead, Evo and Twin Cam and was looking at the new bike of the competitor. Rode both and though it was difficult since I still love the others, but I can't say i ever regretted the decision to go with the Springfield Dark Horse. The handling is superb, It feels like it weighs 500 lbs not 800+! but when you are making tight turns at low speeds, you can feel it if you lean too far!!! so beware, it is heavy though it doesn't corner like it should it corners like a beast and is so smooth that I grin from ear to ear EVERY TIME I ride this bike!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Motorcycle I have owned Had this 2018 Indian Dark Horse for over 3 months now. I was hooked when I did a demo ride in May 2018. Not only is the look of the bike great, but it handles so well with the engine. I bought the smoked windscreen and black Freedom exhaust with stage 2 cams. I have had Harleys and I own two Victory's. This is now my favorite bike!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new Indian The new Indian line is very impressive. The Indian Demo Truck came to Indian of Albuquerque last weekend. I rode the Chieftain, Roadmaster, and Springfield. All of the bikes perform well, very neutral handling, good lean angle, smooth ride. The 116 Chieftain was my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bike! If I had the money, I'd put one in the garage! The styling is spot on. The power and sound of the exhaust were great. I love the big Indian on the side of the tank. Don't know if it's available, but I'd love to see the black leather Indian bags with Indian conchos on the back. This would add to the Indian nostalgia.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Terrible The handlebars are terrible which translate to terrible handling. Also they are set too far out so if one decides to put on apes you better hope they have foot arms

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent riding experience at Americade I did a demo ride at the Americade, I currently own a Harley Street Glide Special and wanted to try the Indian Chieftain. I did like the Chieftain better as far as how light the motorcycle is and it rode amazing. But some small features like the blinker only on one side I had a hard time adjusting to also no heel shifter on the one I tried out. Also had a hard time with the kickstand, I have shorter legs (hard time reaching). My next purchase I will certainly look at the Indian versus Harley, I was very impressed. Thanks again, also I want to mention the staff from Indian was excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice ride but design really sucks I am so disappointed in the design teams lack of vision. This is essentially a HD Street glide with Indian logos. Cheap and easy way to get converts but at the expense of your soul.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This bike is so many things!! The Chieftain could be your long haul bike, your cruiser, your hooligan, whatever! I rode one with the upgraded sound system and the stage 2 performance upgrades. Aside from the standard features that come on this bike, those two really made a difference in both performance as well as ride enjoyment (gotta love cranking some tunes with your fists in the wind!) Once we have our Scout paid off soon (another amazing bike, I might add), this is on our list to add to the garage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great new features! The new rider modes are great. The engine has much better throttle response than before. The Chiefton has always been a very well balance bike, and feels easy to maneuver around a parking lot at low rpms. Now the power is right where you want it, when you want it, on the road ways. I prefer the sport mode for regular riding.

Chieftain Dark Horse
Starting at $28,499 US MSRP
2022 Chieftain Dark Horse Black Smoke is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 412.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dream Bike! This is my second Indian; I traded in a 2017 Chieftain Dark Horse for a 2020 Chieftain Dark Horse. These bikes are extremely nimble for being a heavy bagger. The 116 cubic inch engine has loads of power. You better hold on tight when you twist the throttle! Indian incorporated the rear cylinder disable feature for when you're sitting idle for a period of time, which really helps to keep the heat off of your legs. In terms of the onboard electronics; the user interface on Ride Command is extremely easy to use and customize. The speakers on this bike are 10 times better than the factory speakers on my 2017. The fork mounted fairing does an excellent job of keeping the wind out of your face. I upgraded my windshield to a Klock Werks flare, however, the factory windshield worked just fine in terms of wind buffeting. I really love this bike and I have gotten countless compliments and requests for photos since buying it in May. My only complaint is that the headdress on the front fender doesn't light up like it did on my 2017. Hopefully Indian will address that on future models.

I have been doing research for a new bike for the last 5 years, and Indian always had an intriguing style. And it has only been improving. My first bike was a 2006 Honda Shadow AERO...this machine blows that out of the water. I fully expected this bike to be cumbersome on the road and difficult to handle because of the sheer size, but boy was I wrong! It handles better than my old bike, which is considerably smaller and closer to the ground. The storage and features on this bike alone are worth the purchase, let alone the power train. I haven't been able to ride much since the purchase because of weather, but I find myself sitting in my garage just staring at it...its that beautiful!! Well done, Indian Motorcycles!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bike for those that are new to big cruisers. Very nimble bike once you get accustomed to the weight. I've always ridden sport bikes and supermotos so this bagger was a whole different experience for me. Great handling, awesome ride quality, nice quiet rumble with the stock exhaust. The brakes are more than adequate, throttle response is great. However, gear shifting was a little clunky and could take getting use to. Overall this bike is the best bang-for-your buck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was not expecting a smooth ride I went to the demo ride and right away when I saw the Indian Chieftain I just had to do It and take it for a spin. Getting on the bike I wasn’t expecting to be that well balanced I didn’t struggle and the handle bars are super smooth. I did not feel like I was forcing my body to steer the bike it handle well like a champ.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ride I rode the 116 version of the Chieftain Limited. Love the extra power. The height of the motorcycle has a good feel, I feel like I sit down into it, not on it. I love the adjustable height windshield, nice to be able to adjust it while riding. This one also had the upgraded stereo with the speakers in the saddlebag lids. It was nice, but not for the kind of money extra they were asking for it. Overall, if I had the cash today, it wouldn't be this model, cause I like the big classic fenders, but a Chieftain or Roadmaster would be in my garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still smiling Awesome bike, awesome ride, glad I took the time to take the demo ride. This bike is special and you owe it to yourself to go test drive one today. Heck, it is 24 hours later and I’m still smiling. Thanks Indian.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Experience I have a 2018 Roadmaster and was curious about the experience on the Chieftain. The ride modes are absolutely the most incredible thing that stood out. I started out in touring mode and when I switched to Sport mode was like siting on a whole different bike. The 116 was way more power and speed than I could ever imagine. If you have a need for speed, its there with all the amidities and comfort expected in an Indian dressed bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sweet ride great changes to the look I took a test drive on one in lake George and was very happy with it. I,m holding out to buy one, to see if they make a tour pack that goes with it, and also if they change it to a 4 valve then a 2. the only thing I did not like is the heads have a cheap look to the finish, but look good in black. I road the 2019 chieftain limited.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2019 Chieftain 116 I demoed the 2019 Chieftain with a 116 kit. I was very impressed with unit. Power was much greater than my 2014 Chieftain. I like the handling at slow and high speed. Very much like the new dash and screen. Like the larger bags. Wish the 116 kit was installed at the factory.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Demo days test ride Was really excited about riding this bike during the demo days. I love the styling of the new fairing, you can start to see some of the Victory DNA starting to cross over into Indian. The more modern styling is such an eyecatching feature. Hopefully we see more of the modern aspect of Victory coming into the Indian lineup. The ride was great, bike performed well, but as with the Roadmaster I had tested the day I felt somewhat cramped. The seating position is moved forward a couple of inches and so legroom and comfort isn't the same as what I have on my stock Victory Cross Roads Classic. In order to be comfortable and use the bike for touring the continent I would have to change the seat to an extended reach. Of the 3 bikes I demoed; Roadmaster, Chieftain LTD, and Springfield Dark Horse, this was the second most comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable, great handling bike I test drove the bike on an Indian Demo day. Indian has many great looking bikes to choose from. They definitely have a unique look that sets them apart. Very nice bikes! Excellent ride.

Indian Challenger
Starting at $24,499 US MSRP
2022 Indian Challenger Black Metallic is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 152.
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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bike I’m enjoying riding this Challenger so much that my other Indian has been sitting idle for 6 weeks. That will change today as I get back to time sharing. The Challenger is so smooth, shifts effortlessly and has absolute power to spare. The factory seat really surprised me as to how comfortable it is. 2nd day of riding I put on over 360 miles just to get my 500 mile service done. My next run was 498 miles and no back or monkey butt issues. I’d purchase this bike again in a heartbeat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like this bike! This is a fantastic ride. Plenty of power, excellent handling and great ride. It's had 2 issues, Ride Command loses radio from time to time (understand they are working on software to correct problem) and there are chips in paint on fender strut which couldn't have been seen until bag was removed. I've had bike for bout 6 weeks and fast approaching 2000 miles. Great bike!!! Love the color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the windshield. love this bike. Had for 2 weeks and put 965 miles on it. Use to have a Harley and don't even think we put that many miles on it. Love how smooth the Indian rides. The only downfall about this bike is there is no back rest for passenger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit I moved up from a scout to the Challenger and could not be happier. I rode every Indian model and when I sat on the Challenger it felt as though it was designed for my body. The design and styling as well as the powerplant are on point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made the switch from HD and couldn't be happier I bought mine about 2 months ago and have put almost 2000 miles on it. It handles better than my HD did and has alot more HP prior to any changes. You definitely get more for your money. All I have to say is once you ride it you will switch brands or upgrade to challenger immediately. To me the bike is a great mix of cruiser and sport bike

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BIKE I bought this a month ago. I now have 2,000 miles on her. By far the funnest bike I’ve owned. Would absolutely recommend. I traded in my Harley Davidson sport glide. The engineering on this bike is incredible. Very thought out and designed well. The weight of the bike is low so it deosnt feel like a 800 lb bike. Very agile and well rounded. Seriously go test ride one what do you have to loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance and comfortable to cruise. After 1,100 miles and a GPS upgrade, I am 100% confident that I made the right choice. I knew I wanted to trade in my old bike for a bagger but did not know which one. After hours of internet research and a few test rides, I chose the Challenger base model. As a former sport bike rider, I was looking for performance and also a comfortable ride over long distances and Indian nailed it with the Challenger. I have the best of both worlds, and I'm looking forward to this summer and many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The bike I've been waiting for I have been waiting for years for this bike. After I bought my 2017 Chieftain Dark Horse brand new, i fell in love with the Indian brand. I started doing 400-500 mile days no problem. So then, it was "Man, if they ever make a fix fairing, I will have to have it". Little did I know the Challenger was going to be so performance based! So not only did I get a fix fairing bagger, but I got a highly capable one, that fits my riding style. The bike is quick, handles like a dream, so much so that some of my favorite roads are no longer my favorite, they just are so effortless on this bike. Even the base model stereo is decent enough that I didn't have to upgrade it right away. The slipper clutch makes it nice and easy on my hand on all day rides. The ONLY problem I have found, is the seat is beyond severely lacking. After about 75 miles, I was sore. After about 50, my girlfriend needed stops much more frequently. It offers little to no support. I fixed this with an aftermarket seat, and all is good again. I see myself owning this bike for a long time, and putting some serious miles on. My poor Chieftain looks sad and lonely parked next to my new favorite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bike!! Purchased 02 Apr, wanted GPS upgrade but have to wait over 2 months for a modem, seems incredible at this day and age to have to wait for something that long? The Ride Command has some issues also and waiting for a software upgrade to fix again seems like others with the same issues appears to be no rush to fix and inform owners of know issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bike with an awesome dealer network. I have had my Challenger for two months, it is one of the best bikes I have owned. It has a few issues that. we are working through, Indian has been very responsive to my concerns. This is a new bike that is bound to have a few hiccups. It's all about how the manufacture deals with it. Indian has been great. I would tell anyone that is looking to pull the trigger!!!
