2022 Indian Challenger Dark Horse Bagger – Features and Specs
Black on black on black
Unbridled strength and an unyielding sense of flair characterize The Indian Challenger Dark Horse. Premium features and a menacing, blacked-out look ensure that it attracts attention everywhere.
Free Rein to dominate
Our contemporary, blacked-out Power Plus liquid-cooled engine redefines American V-twin performance. We are starting from the factory, the class-leading 178 Nm of torque and 122 horsepower rule.
Carve corners. All of them
Curve-hugging handling and unrelenting stability are provided by the inverted front suspension, lightweight cast aluminum chassis, and hydraulically adjustable Fox rear shock.
Lean Into Every Ride
The 6-axis Bosch IMU, ABS with cornering control, and Drag Torque Charge of Smart Lean Technology keep you securely rooted to the ground and in control of the road.
Comfort controlled. Every ride. Every day
On the brand-new Indian Challenger Dark Horse, ride to your rhythm. A stylish and comfortable bike makes traveling farther and longer an experience unlike any other.
Mean Style That Stands Alone
A distinctive visage that sets the standard in aesthetics and functionality is provided by an aggressive fairing design with full LED illumination and menacingly designed running lights. The menacing appearance is enhanced by superior paint and blacked-out finishes.
A Black Out all out
The Indian Challenger Dark Horse is an imposing vehicle completely covered in black.
More Beats For The Streets
Upgrade to 6.5″ speakers with 100 watts of crystal-clear music that offer more power. At the same time, a dynamic equalizer keeps you at the moment by automatically adjusting for ambient noise from the wind, the road, and the engine.
Innovation dressed in black
The Indian Challenger Dark Horse, packed with cutting-edge technology and features, blends contemporary convenience with distinctively blacked-out elegance and comfort.
Supreme traction. Superior stopping power
Performance touring tires from Metzeler Cruise Tec gives unmatched traction, and race-spec, radially mounted Brembo brakes deliver better-stopping power.
Ride In Comfort, Your Way
Select one of the three ride settings—Rain, Standard, or Sport—for a ride tailored to your riding preferences. For improved comfort in slow-moving traffic, rear cylinder deactivation automatically turns off the rear cylinder when the bike is halted.
Features For Going The Distance
With keyless ignition, remote-locking hard saddlebags, cruise control, and a USB charging station, you can ride comfortably for longer.
