Indian Motorcycle has unveiled its 2024 model lineup, featuring a limited-edition FTR R Carbon and Challenger Elite, as well as a redesigned PowerBand Audio system, and a new line of apparel from 100%. In addition to these two new exclusive motorcycles, Indian is offering a total of 32 models for 2024, including 14 varieties of Scouts and Chiefs, six Challengers and Chieftains, four Springfields and Pursuits, three FTRs, and three Roadmasters.
With only 400 bikes available globally, the $18,999 FTR x 100% R Carbon is rare, indeed. The custom creation is the love child between Indian and celebrated motocross apparel manufacturer 100%. The exclusive FTR features a Blue Candy carbon fiber tank, headlight nacelle, seat cowl, and front fender. Red accents complement the bike’s visually striking, bright white powder-coated frame. Further upgrades include a blacked-out Öhlins fork and shock and a black-finished titanium Akrapovič exhaust system. The bar-end weights and the oil and radiator caps were sourced from Gilles Tooling.
The launch of the limited-edition FTR Carbon will be accompanied by an Indian Motorcycle x 100% apparel collection. The collection will include a wide range of men’s and women’s lifestyle pieces, such as long- and short-sleeved shirts, hoodies, hats, beanies, and sunglasses. A free pair of sunglasses from the collection is included with the purchase of an FTR x 100% R Carbon bike.
For 2024, the new $38,499 Indian Challenger Elite comes dressed in a Charcoal Candy/Black Candy paint scheme and is even rarer than the FTR, with only 325 units available globally. The Challenger Elite comes outfitted with premium features, including Smart Lean Technology, an adaptive LED headlight, LED driving lights, an adjustable windscreen, rider and passenger footboards, heated grips, saddlebag lights, saddlebag closeouts, a custom-stitched seat, and selectable ride modes.
You’ll also find Indian’s all-new PowerBand Audio system, featuring UnderGlow lighting and titanium-plated domes, as standard equipment on the bike. Considering the Challenger Elite has two fairing speakers and two saddlebag speakers, that’s a combined output of 400 watts of sound. However, if that’s not enough, Indian will offer additional 200-watt speakers for a combined output of 800 watts.
The PowerBand Audio system is protected by a unique Power Supply Temperature Protection protocol that actively monitors circuit temperatures to prevent any internal damage or a system shutdown. The system also features Ultra Coat sealing to prevent damage from water, dirt, and debris.
The new PowerBand Audio system is also compatible with 2020-2024 baggers and touring models—in case you don’t want to purchase a new motorcycle. Once installed, the Ride Command software will automatically recognize the new PowerBand speakers and upgrade the motorcycle’s audio menu. With setup completed, riders will have access to a nine-band equalizer for customizing their listening experience. The equalizer is also dynamic, automatically optimizing sound in real time according to speed and atmospheric conditions.
