Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best decision i ever made! I bought this bike a little over a month ago and i have to say i will never go back to a Harley again. The handling and control is far beyond any other bike, so well balanced and the power of the 116 cu in engine is phenomenal. I can't say anything negative about this bike at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great investment! I bought my CDH two months ago and already put thousands of Kms on it. I get more compliments on my bike then Harley riders get on theirs!

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A few issues.... I bought this 2 months ago and I am not so happy. I love the bike but the battery completely died with 127 miles on the bike. The bike stalls on me constantly and it now only has 220 miles on it. The seat bolt was stripped (noticed it when I had to remove the battery for the shop to replace).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mirrors and Sound The mirrors look like two big bug eyes, not a fan. Pipes, shhhhh don’t talk I can’t hear my bike. Other than that, better than any Harley I ever rode.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Love it! Bought this bike a couple of months ago. Best bike I have ever owned. From all the features, the power, the sound, the style and ultimately, the way this girl handles the road. I haven't had a bike handle this nice on corners since my days riding a 750. A Truly incredible bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bike. Step up from your Harley I bought this bike 2 months ago and it’s more than delivered. I love the ride. So smooth and shift is so deliberate, but clean at the same time

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice I love the bike. Surprised that there are still a few issues consistent with getting into 2nd gear early in the ride. It is ok once bike warms up. Would love to add Indian Accessories but too expensive. Items like genuine Indian rider backrest. Should not cost as much as they do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great comfort First bagger style bike and I love it. Comfort and handling is beyond what I expected. Power is there at every corner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent but lacking in some areas. I have put 1000km on it so far and overall love it but lacking in the cosmetic department. Front fearing/windshield has a rattle, been there since km zero. A bit disappointing considering it’s brand new.
