    Found this interresting pic of the new Indian Challenger . Not keen so far on the styling , but look at the engine , is that a new engine , or a scout engine ??? 70558273_368349097448550_8963444795104034816_n.jpg

    Looks better than I expected (from what you can see)
    The Scout Engine certainly has proven it self.
    So why not go BIGGER lol.
    Should be interesting to hear reviews.

    I was interested in buying this years Limited 116, then you read indian have brought out the Challenger which is a liquid cooled 108 but actually puts out a lot more grunt than the 116. Talk about a company shooting themselves in the foot?

    If they had a new developed better motor why not introduce it in the Chieftan range also?

    We are a fickle lot , and some riders dont like water cooling . Aka V-Rod . " That's not a real Harley , its got a radiator " Its the wrong angle V even . So unless it became absolutely necessary for emission requirements , I feel that it is a very good decision to run both engine formats . I am happy with my 111 cui . But in saying that , World emissions standards do dictate engine noise and emissions . We will all be running water cooling eventually .

    The Challenger has the all new Powerplus engine . Liquid cooled , 123 hp . Nothing to do with the Scout engine .
