Stopped by an Indian dealer to get a new rear tire on my Vision. A lot of talk and interest in the new Indian engine and bike named Challenger. Supposed to be liquid-cooled and is thought to be powered by an engine that Victory was working on before they shut down. I sat on a limited edition, hand painted Roadmaster and it just felt to cramped compared to the Vision. An employee told me that there might be hope for an Indian bike built around the Vision frame and body. His reasoning was all the research and development money spent to get the Vision produced. I sure hope so.

Funny you mention the legroom on an Indian (albeit limited edition). I sat on one a couple of years ago and never minding the roughly $14000 price jump I thought it was cramped. I asked the salesman (not trying to be a dick just a legit question) Where are you supposed to put your feet? He sad whadda ya ride now? 13 Vision I says..........crickets ;-) There has been talk of the water cooled engine similar (same as?) the Octane/Scout showing up in a larger size with a Cross Country look to it. So far nothing has surfaced with a Vision vibe that I've seen. Not saying it couldn't happen just haven't seen or heard it. LMYR

In our talks the salesman stated that they could order a different seat which sits an inch further back that the stock one. he said that they can do this for all larger indian models. When I asked if that was an option or as a replacement seat. Of course he said a replacement which means you are stuck with the original seat which is of no use to you.

I guess you could call it the Challenger; but after Victory, I don't see myself lining up with cash at Polaris' steps.

I want to know if that motor will bolt into my current Vision.

Frame looks similar but probably isn't due to the lack of bottom end I see. That would be a nightmare swap. ECM, exhaust, intake, all the electronics associated. "122 HP Horsepower, 128 ft-lbs Torque" would be a wash in HP and a 8ftlb downgrade in torque for me with cam/valve upgrades and reflash tune I currently run.

It's only about 1200 bucks to do the work yourself and have the ECM reflashed + dyno costs for a solid tune.
