In the world of motorcycles, the 2024 Indian Challenger Elite is a rare gem, with only 325 units available worldwide. This ultimate American bagger not only catches the eye with its custom-inspired Charcoal Candy paint scheme but also offers a first-class riding experience for those who crave long journeys in the saddle.
At the heart of this class-leading bagger is Indian Motorcycle’s all-new PowerBand Audio system.

The rider is ensconced in style and comfort thanks to the all-new custom-stitched seat.
The Indian Challenger Elite roars to life with a powerful 90 kW PowerPlus engine, setting a benchmark in V-twin performance and providing unmatched passing power. But power is just the beginning of this bagger’s impressive repertoire.
This elite ride comes equipped with a host of premium features, including electronically adjustable rear suspension preload from Fox, Smart Lean Technology, and an adaptive LED headlight. LED driving lights ensure the road ahead is always well-illuminated. The adjustable flare windscreen caters to individual preferences, and rider and passenger Headdress floorboards add a touch of luxury.
The Indian Challenger Elite keeps you comfortable in various conditions with heated grips and saddlebag lights. For riders looking to keep the elements at bay, saddlebag closeouts are a welcome addition.
But it’s not just about comfort; it’s also about customization. The Indian Challenger Elite offers three selectable ride modes: Tour, Standard, and Sport. These modes allow riders to tailor their experience to suit their preferences, whether they’re on a weekend adventure with a passenger or tackling the daily commute solo.
Under the hood, the 2024 Indian Challenger Elite is powered by a 6 Speed PowerPlus Liquid Cooled 108 cu-in V-Twin engine that delivers a peak torque of 128 ft-lbs. This powerhouse is ready to take on any road, offering a thrilling and responsive ride.
In the tech department, the bagger doesn’t disappoint.
