It’s time for you to decide…

Last week Indian Motorcycles released their new marketing campaign, “Take the Challenger Challenge”. Essentially they are inviting you to ride their new Challenger Motorcycle, a bagger, designed to compete with the Harley-Davidson Road Glide, and then ride the new Road Glide “Head to Head”. Indian touts “Demo the bikes back-to-back and experience the difference for yourself. May the best V-twin win.” Their campaign even comes complete with a social media hashtag so you can essentially “vote” for your favorite.
Harley-Davidson answered Indian’s challenge with a response of their own, playing off of the fact that they have been building riders for 115 years and have been carrying Indian’s weight the entire time.
Personally, I am looking forward to taking the challenge, which I plan on doing during Daytona Bike Week. I will be honest, it should be interesting because I have never been a fan of the Road Glide and neither bike appeals to me aesthetically, but I guess the ride is more about performance and comfort. I did however put 50,000 miles on my Street Glide, and have been told more than once the Road Glide is a better ride. We shall see!
Who do you think will prevail? Are you going to take the Challenge? You can check out Indian’s website for details on where and when you can do so! www.indianmotorcycle.com/en-us/events/
