Indian Motorcycles has finally raised the veil on their new lineup, and the range of bikes includes a Challenger Elite, a redesigned Powerban Audio, and one very exclusive, very sexy FTR.
As Indian’s President says, listening to fan feedback has paid off:
It’s amazing to think how far we’ve come in developing and expanding our lineup of motorcycles… Riders are choosing Indian Motorcycle. We’re growing share and growing retail volume all over the world. We’ve received incredible rider feedback and continue to refine, enhance, and fine-tune our lineup and accessories based off this feedback.”
– Mike Dougherty, President of Indian Motorcycle
With that little tidbit nestled in our ears, let’s dive in and take a closer look at that sweet 2024 FTR x 100% R Carbon before we get into the Elite, the Powerband audio and the MY2024 lineup, shall we?
2024 FTR x 100% R Carbon
This newest FTR is bristling carbon fiber componentry and hails from a partnership with “100%,” a premium provider of motocross parts – a great combo and one that makes this 2024 FTR x 100% R Carbon all the more attractive.
Co-branding highlights this bike’s tank side, a piece that was made out of carbon fiber alongside the headlight nacelle, seat cowl, and front fender. Everything has been painted a translucent “Blue Candy” so that the fiber pops, highlighting other carbon bits like the engine covers, chain guard, and exhaust heat shield.
Indian’s also tricked out this FTR with goodies like the blacked-out Öhlins® front forks and rear shock spring, the similarly blacked-out titanium Akrapovič pipe, and the splash of Gilles Tooling parts (bar-end weights, oil cap, and radiator cap).
The whole kit houses that iconic liquid-cooled V-twin heat capable of 120hp and 87ft-lb of yank, stopped by radially-mounted dual-disc Brembo® power. Add a neat 4” touchscreen compatible with RIDE COMMAND (turn-by-turn navigation, Bluetooth® connectivity, and Rain, Standard, and Sport Ride Modes), and the starting MSRP of $18,999 USD makes total sense for this.
Expect the 400-piece fleet of Indian’s 2024 FTR x 100% R Carbon to be available as of the end of this month.
2024 Indian Challenger Elite
Of course, where would Indian’s lineup be without continual updates to the iconic Elite range?
2024 has bestowed upon our community a new kind of ultimate America bagger; for this year, only 325 of Indian’s Challenger Elite will be available to purchase at an MSRP of $38,499 USD; for that price, you’re getting a custom-inspired Charcoal Candy paint scheme that covers Indian’s V-Twin PowerPlus engine capable of 122 pretty, pretty ponies.
Further perks include:
Redesigned PowerBand Audio system featuring four 100-watt speakers, two fairing speakers, and two saddlebag speakers
Three selectable ride modes, including Tour, Standard, and Sport
Expect the new 2024 Indian Challenger Elite to be available by the end of this month at select dealerships.
Indian PowerBand Audio
Indian’s adapted to a tweak or two in the acoustic department; for 2024, expect to see this new PowerBand Audio system, designed explicitly for Indian’s baggers and tourers. Wattage is now doubled, with 50% more bass and auto-optimizers, with the usual water resistance ratings to follow the continual goal of an “immersive listening experience.”
Here’s what the kit includes:
Louder, clearer, more bass-heavy 100-watt speakers
