    Hi All.
    I will be picking up my new Challenger within the next week .

    i found out that the war bonnet on the Challenger Ltd in not illuminated like the Cheiftain and it will cost about $250 fitted, I think this is one of the iconic parts of the larger bikes, do the ones in the US come illuminated or do you have to pay for it, also you have to buy the bonnet , light and wiring separate. which i thing is wrong for a Premium brand Motorcycle, we also don't have the ability to contact Indian in the UK unless we go through a dealer.

    The warbonnet on the challenger, USA, does light up. Except on the base model. All others do. They already come fitted on all bikes.

    I just had my second failed attempt to buy a Challenger. I really should have waited, instead of buying the Chieftain. Everything happens for a reason, I suppose. I just hope the reason want that I was being an impatient dumbass.

    How does one "fail"? I can't afford one right now, but I don't chalk that up to failure. Do tell.

    Too upside down in that Chieftain. I'm good on the Bobber, but I still owe a chunk o' change on that Chieftain. I suppose if I wanted to drop my drawers I could do it, but ouch.

    That's my spot and you and I both bought ours BEFORE the "tariff mark-ups" jacked the prices up by 4k.

    My best deal so far is 26,016 OTD. I've not taken a crack at a base yet. I likely won't cuz the color.

    Same on the color. That looks to be a pretty good deal.

    It's a good deal, but it's too expensive. As much as I'd like to have one, it's foolish. My #ChiefGlide [with BBK] needs to have the dogshit run out of it.

    There’s a red limited that I could have bought (chieftain limited) price is 27,500. Could have gotten it for 21,500 plus plus plus. But my bike is paid off. Feels good to owe nothing

    The Challenger I rode had a lighted stripe down the center of the warbonnet. Not the lighted face like the RM. I ended up going with a 19 RM. The challeger was a lot of fun and handled great but just didn't speak to me like the RM does.
