We were less than impressed with Indian’s new air-conditioned cool seat when we tested it on a ride to Palm Springs just about one year ago. But the thing did show promise, and we did conjecture at the time that we may be looking at a genius development in need of some fine-tuning. Well, our Indian sources inform us the latest ClimaCommand Comfort Seat is “vastly improved” and now available for Challengers too. When it’s hot, it can’t hurt.

Indian Press Release:

Just in time for riding season, Indian Motorcycle today announced it’s expanding its revolutionary heated and cooled seat with the ClimaCommand Comfort Seat for Challenger models. Utilizing the same proprietary thermoelectric technology and flexible graphene material as the ClimaCommand seats for Thunderstroke models, the ClimaCommand Comfort Seat improves rider and passenger comfort in all conditions.

Available now for model year 2019-2021 Indian Challenger models, the well-cushioned seat provides adjustable heating and cooling for the rider seat and the slightly elevated passenger perch. Both riders and passengers can select one of three levels (low, medium, high) in both heating and cooling via integrated buttons. In addition, the ClimaCommand Comfort seat seamlessly integrates within the Challenger’s seven-inch RideCommand infotainment system – making it even easier to control and manage heating and cooling settings.
