    2020 Indian Challenger unveiled

    American manufacturer Indian has taken the covers off the all-new Challenger touring motorcycle. The cruiser is available in three variants – Standard, Dark Horse and Limited and features an all-new V-twin engine.

    Powering the Challenger series is the brand’s all-new ‘PowerPlus’ V-twin. The liquid-cooled unit displaces 1,769cc and puts out 122hp and 173.5Nm of torque via a 6-speed gearbox with a ‘true overdrive’ function.

    As for the features, the Challenger gets LED headlamps with DRLs, a 7.0-inch touchscreen display, a 100W audio system with Bluetooth, cruise control, keyless ignition, riding modes, a powered windshield and locking-hard saddlebags.

    While there has been no confirmation yet, we expect Indian Motorcycles to bring the Challenger series to India, seeing as how the rest of the manufacturer’s range is already on sale here. As for the price, the base Challenger Standard costs USD 22,000 (Rs 15.60 lakh) in the US. For the India price, we expect the Challenger series to start at around Rs 21 lakh, since the FTR 1200 S starts at USD 15,499 (Rs 10.99 lakh) in the US and is sold at Rs 15.99 lakh in India.
