Indian Motorcycles hasn’t really brought out much in the way of bold new tech lately, but we do see a couple of re-worked models debuting this week. There’s a new Indian FTR x 100% R Carbon model, and a new Indian Challenger Elite.
Indian FTR x 100% R Carbon
This awkwardly-named model is a team-up between Indian and gear manufacturer 100%. It’s an FTR R Carbon model (as reviewed by Dustin last year—see here) but with added bling. Flashy paint, machined billet parts such as the radiator fill cap and the bar end weights. A blacked-out treatment for the fork and shock, and did we mention the flashy paint?
And because this is a co-branding deal, there is also a wide range of merch available that’s tied to the bike. Sweatshirts, hats, sunglasses—they’ll throw a pair of those shades in if you buy one of these bikes. Asking price is around $19k in the United States; we haven’t seen any details on pricing or availability in Canada, but we do know only 400 will be sold worldwide.
Indian Challenger Elite
Indian’s big-bore, big-buck bagger comes with Charcoal Candy paint, a flash stitched seat and a redesigned PowerBand Audio system with two 100-watt speakers in the fairing and another two in the saddlebags. Still the same 122-hp PowerPlus V-twin and the other mechanical and electrical bits are familiar as well. The bike has a 350-machine production run and a $50,149 price tag for 2024.
