Indian Strikes Back: “Our Bikes Are Braking Better Than Harley-Davidsons”

It comes just after Harley-Davidson mocked up Indian in an add

Indian released a video showing the braking performance of the Challenger Dark Horse Vs. Harley-Davidson’s Road Glide Special. 

Harley-Davidson has made aggressive advertising in an add on social media regarding their competitor Indian. 

“We’ve been carrying your weight for a long time,” said Harley-Davidson.

That was a response from the brand due to Indian’s Challenger campaign where they’ve compared the performance of the Indian Challenger Dark Horse and Harley-Davidson’s Road Glide Special.


Now, Indian released a video as a response where they’ve tested the braking system of the two motorcycles.

So, the results show that the Indian Challenger Dark Horse brakes 12 ft (3.7 meters) less than the Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special from 60 mph (96kph).

In the second test, the difference is a little bit bigger – 18 ft (5.6 meters) in favour of the Indian Challenger Dark Horse.
