  • STYLE. COMFORT. NO COMPROMISES.: See what adventures will unfold on the Indian Challenger. A bike with both comfort and style that makes going further and longer easier than ever.
  • COMMAND ATTENTION: Open fender with subtle flip and a modern take on the iconic headdress means no mistaking that Challenger has arrived.
  • CONTROLLED COMFORT. EVERY RIDE. EVERY DAY.: Class-leading wind protection and control at your fingertips with a power-adjustable windscreen on a chassis-mounted fairing.
