Indian Challenger To Arrive In India By End Of 2020
The Indian Challenger will be available in India by the end of 2020.
Indian Motorcycles plans on launching the Indian Challenger along with the full fleet of BS6-compliant motorcycles in India by the end of 2020.
Polaris-owned Indian Motorcycles has struggled to cope with the transition from BS4 to BS6 norms. As a result, they had to delay the launch of the BS6-compliant Indian Challenger and other Indian motorcycles to the end of 2020.
Indian introduced the Indian Challenger globally in October 2019 and it was a completely new offering by the manufacturer. The Challenger features a newly developed V-Twin engine called ‘Power Plus’. The 1769cc motor produces 122 HP and 173.5 Nm of torque via a 6-speed gearbox. It also comes with 3 riding modes.
While the Indian Challenger comes packed with features like LED headlamps, hard-case panniers, electrically adjustable windshield, keyless ignition, cruise control, a 7.0-inch touchscreen display and a 1000W music system with Bluetooth, these features are pretty common in this category of motorcycles.
The Indian Challenger takes on the high-end cruiser motorcycle segment, which includes the Harley Davidson Road Glide range and even the Honda Gold Wing. The Challenger retails at $21,999 in the US (roughly Rs. 16.5 lakhs). With additional taxes in India, we expect it to retail around Rs. 22 lakhs.
