Ordered 2022 Challenger Dark Horse Icon Stealth Gray/Azure Crystal Jan 18, 2022
Originally quoted to be delivered 4/1 - 4/30/2022
Scheduled last week of January 2022
Ship Date: TBD
Seattle, WA

Thought I'd also send my communication with Owners Connect at Indian that I had today since I know a few folks in this thread have been waiting on CDH Icon's.
After connecting with the Production Team, my bike is anticipated to ship to the dealer "beginning of August".
Their reasoning is the Dark Horse exhaust paint delay, as well as other various shortages and increased demand, which others have shared before.

All of that said, I get that this very much is a first world problem, it's a want not a need, and I'm fine waiting a few extra months for what will likely be a bike I'll own for 10+ years.
However, I do think it's frustrating that I get more intel on new lead time from this forum and reddit than I do from Indian, and that there's prioritization being placed on new models. Like, how is the Challenger Elite going to be launched and shipped before my order that's been in the system for six months and it's virtually the same bike (at least in the parts that are seemingly causing the delay).

Anyways, just wanted to share new intel to the community. Safe riding all!

I ordered a Scout bobber in Dec 2021. I hope the exhaust comes in black but it is my understanding that all Scout’s now come with chrome exhaust.
How long did it take for Indian to reply to you?
I contacted them 7-8 days ago and still no reply.
They did text me the same day to ask what dealership I purchased at but no contact since.

Well said!!!!!
I have been thinking the same (Challenger Elite launch)
I am fine waiting for what I want but the lack of information is borderline infuriating.
Indian official wed site is still saying 12+ weeks. REALLY!!
They need to be more forthcoming with Information.
Even if the parts shortages ended tomorrow, the log jam of orders will take a long time to process.

Bobbers were shipping with chrome for awhile but were apparently back to black when the paint shipment came in Rogues were always going to ship with black which is why they are waiting. I contacted them by phone on Friday and she texted me back today.

How do you get in touch with the "Production Team" directly?

Just got an email from the dealership. They have a black smoke scout bobber that someone backed out on. I can have that one if I want. It’s not Maroon metallic smoke but I can have it now. The estimate I am getting from the dealership is ship date of June 1 to June 30. Decisions decisions

I ordered the Maroon Metallic Smoke, but it was a hard decision between that and Black Smoke.

In addition to what you are hearing from the dealer, does the website support what the dealer is saying? If you've waited this long AND you still prefer the Maroon...what's another 3 weeks (assuming it doesn't slip past the 30th).

That’s what the website says and what it has said from the beginning
That does't make me feel too good. Mine at least has two green dots. Makes me wonder what the dealer is basing their estmated range on. I ordered my bike on 5/13, and the dealer verbally said "Late July/Early August". But I sort of put more stock in what the website says, since one would think that info is updated by an uninterested 3rd party that has to be getting some sort of "official" info before making changes.

I guess the dealer has some different program that tells them progress or hoped progress of an order. When I ordered in December I was told then April/May. Here we are second week of June and no bike to ride. 27 weeks and counting.
