Indian Challenger Pre Release Spy Cam From Dealers Meeting


Recommended Posts

I know this will be strange but I get hung up on visuals very easily especially doing what I do for a living. The part I really hate is the LED accent lights around the main headlight as seen :18 into the video. Looks way too much like the outline of the HD Bar and Shield.

The challenger blew up and killed 7 astronauts. Maybe the “Hindenburg “ or “Titanic “ would be more appropriate?

PowerPlus-108-Engine-058_zps40gi85rn.jpg PowerPlus 108


The PowerPlus will serve as the heart of the new Indian Challenger, an all-new, fixed-fairing bagger that utilizes Indian Motorcycle’s state-of-the-art technology to become the highest-performing American V-twin ever developed. The new engine’s name is a nod to Indian Motorcycle’s iconic history, paying homage to the Indian PowerPlus motorcycle produced from 1916 to 1924.

The PowerPlus adopts several design and performance features from the liquid-cooled 1,133 cc Indian Scout engine, including an overhead camshaft design utilizing four valves per cylinder. But comparisons end there. The PowerPlus was developed with a big-piston, big-torque mindset with an end game of maximum power delivery across the entire curve.

The all-new powertrain features a six-speed transmission with true overdrive, assist clutch to reduce clutch effort, and three ride modes that allow riders to tailor throttle mapping to their riding preferences. Advanced technology also includes hydraulic valve lash adjusters and hydraulic camshaft chain tensioners for ease of maintenance and reliability.

The PowerPlus was tested, refined and proven by one of the industry’s most rigorous development and testing programs, accumulating nearly one million miles of simulated testing, including state-of-the-art dyno testing, and more than 250,000 on-road miles.

“You simply cannot deliver the ultimate bagger without an engine that stands head and shoulders above anything else in its class, and that was the motivation behind the PowerPlus,” said John Callahan, Indian Motorcycle Vice President, Engineering. “We developed the most sophisticated V-twin powerplant in the industry, and then we spent month after month, hour upon hour, putting it through the most intense paces to ensure it could take whatever we threw at it. The end result is something truly special.”

Indian Motorcycle PowerPlus Engine Specifications:

  • Engine Displacement: 108 cubic inches (1,769 cc)
  • Power: 122 hp at 5,500 RPM
  • Torque: 128 ft-lbs at 3,800 RPM
  • Maximum Engine Speed: 6,500 RPM
  • Architecture: 60-degree V-twin, liquid-cooled powerplant
  • Crankcase: Unit design featuring a high capacity semi-dry sump oil system
  • Timing System: Overhead camshafts and four valves per cylinder
  • Fuel System: Electronic fuel injection. 52mm dual bore throttle bodies
  • Compression Ratio: 11:1
  • Transmission: Six-speed with true overdrive, constant mesh
  • Clutch: Assist clutch

The PowerPlus will be built in Osceola, Wisconsin with final motorcycle assembly taking place in Indian Motorcycle’s production facility in Spirit Lake, Iowa.

Victory Challenger sounds better huh?

 

 

 

I'm thinking after I yank off the nameplate...... and the shark fairing...... and those +*%#$ bags....

I shall name it #harleynotedition 3 can't hang with Challenger quite yet.

 

gotta admit that youtube #PowerPlus108 engine video is promising..

 

well I do have some non-whistle blower, firsthand intel

Lloyd G was hinting recently .....that the #PP108 was something he thought was a competition separation platform..(HD VS Indian).............guessing he has seen that engine .......for quite sometime.. :nod:

Indian 'Victory' would do fine.

 

Water-less coolant of a synthetic base would be good.

 

Performance big bore kits for the 108 are already in the works to be sure.

 

 

Harley had a thought to use the Vrod powertrain in a cruiser line but never did.
