Base model there I'm guessing because of the color. No Nav. C'mon now TN. We need a pros and cons list from you on your thoughts.

Mike, I'm warming up to it slowly, pros is it's not an HD  :drink: cons it's not an HD  :drink:

I use to buy these things without much due diligence, I'm more frugal with my monies these days and whom I spend it with. I do foresee one in my future.  :orange:  I only rode it 40mi or so but first impression is positive.  :drink:

Go ride one and get back with me

Would love to ride one. Trouble up here right now is this white crap on the roads called salt.

They sound like nice bikes, but I don't think I could ever get past the big, fat, fugly look of that front-end ... it just ruins the bike for me.

Has anyone found a good video that they can share that explains the water cooled motor?

To me, that is the appealing part and could make it very popular for those that live in the sun belt.

The HD wet-head motor does help a little to cool the motor but will still over heat on hot days.

Very true. The facts are that a water cooled motor is designed with tighter tolerances, can have higher compression, operates at a more consistent temperatures. Generally run better, produce more power. It's the only way a manufacturer can meet today's worldwide emmissions requirements while producing the power/performance todays buyers want. Especially in warmer climates.

Air cooled motors were the norm when we traveled at lower speeds, had far less traffic and little to no emmissions requirements.

Indian made a smart move designing a water cooled motor. Hopefully Harley answers Indian with a re-designed touring line. Long overdue.

My FLHXSE3 is looking pretty damn ugly these days as it sits in the garage waiting to be sent to the mainland to get the havoc caused by another dealer doing $8500 of shoddy warranty work. I am having trouble getting past the quality of the product and service.......it just ruins the bike for me!

I hope that it gets fixed.....and I can learn to love again!

 went to the Long Beach show yesterday and saw it in person. I thought the fairing looked much better in person than what I had seen in the pics but also thought the inner fairing looked very cheap and "plasticky" (new word..). Not the Challenger but another of their baggers (not familiar with the line) had their upgraded exhaust on and sounded terrific. It was at the demo truck and I asked the guy that just tried it and he said the power felt great. I personally would have trouble with the looks of that inner fairing but gotta believe as the model progresses they will address that but who knows. I certainly did not hate the looks of the bike in person like I did the pics for whatever thats worth..

I just finished watching no less than half a dozen test-ride vids on this bike. The MoCo is going to be hurting even more if they don't up their game. This vid here has the best sound of the bike itself compared to others. He doesn't seem so enthused as some of the other reviews, but seemed impressed. Most are giggling and laughing like girls and have nothing but praise for it.

Good Vid  Thanks for posting!   I had actually ridden up to Iron Pony about 3 weeks ago and they still had not received any Challengers.

Almost rode down there yesterday on my day off. Didn't feel like riding home in the dark though with Bambi and all Her relatives running around like crazy right now.

Good video on the Challenger.  I agree with him, Harley needs to step up their game with ride modes, and so on.  That bike is also keyless and power locks like a CVO.

All in all I really like the video and agree with his comments directed at Harley. The one thing I didn't like was the input of comparison to the HD 114 which gave the opportunity to allow Harley to be closer in Torque specs. I believe it should be compared to the 107 for a more apples to apples comparison in size, in which, it severely blows it away. Just to be real.

Perhaps this will be a wake-up call to HD, much like the Japanese auto manufacturers stung GM, Ford, and Chrysler in the 70s.  For the life of me, I can't understand why the MoCo didn't explore using a retuned/modified Revolution engine in a bagger back in the early 2000's.

Got to see the thunder black pearl, still waiting to lay my eyes on the deepwater metallic. The base model doesn’t come with smart lean technology and isn’t an option. You’d have to watch a video on that cause I couldn’t articulate on it, how do we ride without it.  :drink:
Dealer was busy Friday, a customer that owns one and has close to 5k miles on it started talking with me and he was giddy about his, I appreciated his candor and still need to ride one for a few days, haven’t been offered that option yet, got to make them think it’s their idea

Any dealer will let you have it for however many days you want, just sign on the dotted line! lol.
