Finally, an Indian that speaks to ME, if I could afford another bike. For me, and not looking to get into a pissing war, it's been my disgust for those dopey full fenders. Indian finally gets it. Wish I could.

I am in.

This bike is perfect - liquid cooled and fine looking. Well, except for the headlight. I still like the headlight on the road glide a little better, but I would trade for something with technology newer than the 30's.

I could see one of these next year.

Glad they ditched the goofy fenders.

Probably destined for failure though. Maybe 15-20 yrs ago it would have done well.

Looks good, specs seem good at first glance, wondering how much Victory is under that Indian facade.
I'll be looking at bikes, like the indian challenger, in pictures and online articles for the rest of my life and i'm ok with it. I like being out of debt and won't return to the days of having that amazing vehicle and the amazing payments that go with it.

That said, i'd still take an Ultra Limited, if i had to pick between the two in a raffle i won, let's say.

I took a quick glance at the Indian Challenger's prices, Indian not giving them away. True it's too bad they didn't have developed this engine earlier. Yep it's a tough market and hard economy to sell bikes for $20K- plus.

21K for the base model 29k for the full feature deluxe. Nobody's getting out the door for less than 27K i bet, when all the dust settles. 30K if your lucky for the deluxe.
