Indian Motorcycle got 2022 started early when it introduced the all-new Chief in February, 2021. Now, the brand updates its Thunderstroke, Powerplus, and Scout models with new paint options, revised tech, and accessories for 2022.
Commonly found on Indian touring bikes, the Ride Command system gains a new speed-limit overlay in the new year. The new feature will be available on all 2022 Ride Command-equipped baggers and tourers, but 2020 and 2021 owners can also download the software update. The system also gains expanded Bluetooth device connectivity and faster screen load time while Indian retunes the Challenger’s traction control for smoother engagement.
In addition to the software upgrades, the touring accessories catalog now includes additional luggage collections, passenger back rests, and LED lighting options. Challenger customers can also add extra wind protection in the form of hard lower fairings with extra storage compartments or optional PowerBand Audio speakers.
