Rated 5 out of 5 by Indian outlaw from Challenger owner I bought this awhile back. So far no issues. Runs great, smooth ride, good handling feels like a much lighter bike than is.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Indianround3 from Good power and handling I am disappointed that this bike is in production for three years without fixing simple issues. I have had the bike for a month and a half and have encountered several problems already. I have owned two other Indian 111s and three Victory motorcycles so I am not new to them. First problem was during test ride with small latch for USB and fairing storage compartment. The latch piece popped out. They had service reinstall it, easy enough I thought. I figured problem solved. I left the dealership with a 100 mile ride home. The small plastic latch piece holding the door shut would continuously pop out as I rode home. I finally just left it hanging on the door of the compartment to prevent loss of latch. A few miles in, I had the Tire Pressure light come on and stay on. I checked pressure at next exit and it was fine. It stayed on after that. I was again not concerned and would have it looked at during first service. I scrolled through the diagnostics and would sometimes get rear tire pressure sensor not found. That was the beginning. I had a friend with the Challenger that had purchased his bike one week earlier He went back to the dealer and I figured I would just send the clip with him and have it switched out under warranty. I figured they would remember installing it for me before purchase. The dealership said they could not switch it out without the bike there even though the friend had the failing piece with him. It was a plastic piece the size of a coin. They were happy to sell me a replacement piece for around 45 dollars that he could bring back. He purchased it and brought it to me. I have been riding it to work and back each week to get the 500 mile break in. I left the bike in my garage for 5 or so days between rides. The battery dropped to 4 volts. I tried chargers and tenders to bring it back without luck. I called the servicers about it. They said to bring the bike in. I said it would not charge and asked if I could bring battery in separately. He agreed. He also said that Polaris recommends putting it on a battery tender for anything more than three days storage. I have owned numerous motorcycles including the 5 Polaris brands before. I have never had issues with batteries even without riding them for a month. I finally got the battery jumped enough to start the bike. It is never real safe to jump start a battery with that low of voltage and most chargers will not recognize the battery at that voltage. I initially wrote this review prior to the service I was going in for hoping they would make good. In making the service appointment, I mentioned what problems I was having. The service representative mentioned it was probably just a loose battery cable. I then made sure that the terminals were tight with a box end wrench to be sure. They were very secure. I guess on a positive note; after the battery failure, the Tire Pressure light went off. I had the 500 service done with comments on issues. I got it back afterward and they wrote that the battery was loose and tightened with a screwdriver. Hmmm, and they adjusted the clip. The clip kept coming out on the return trip home. In summary I would say that I am very disappointed with this bike in the month and a half that I have owned it so far. Imagine buying a new vehicle and then being told later that you must leave it on a charger if not used within a couple days or the battery will go dead. The friend with the same bike as mine that had took my clip up from earlier in my story has already had to replace his battery at about 4 or 5 weeks old. If I look up common problems on this model, my bike seems to be taking me down the list one by one. I really miss the Victory I traded in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by atyler from 1400 mile review Traded in 2015 Chieftain for 2023 Challenger about a month ago. Have about 1400 miles now and enjoying the bike. Lots of power and takes corners very nicely

Rated 5 out of 5 by Baron58 from Great Bike, Great Handling, Great Power As a previous owner of an Indian Chieftain, I was interested in the new modern Challenger. I ordered mine in July of 2022 and had it for Labor Day Weekend. The power and handling was even better than the Chieftain, which was pretty good in itself. I like the modern engine design, water-cooled, and technology. I have already put 2000 miles on the bike and will continue to do so. I am very happy with the purchase. This is a bagger matched with a sport bike. And it is great!
