The 2023 Indian Challenger RR is limited to 29 units worldwide. Only for track duty, the hand-built Challenger RR is designed for die-hard track drivers and collectors alike.

Built by S&S Cycle, the Challenger RR has been tuned to the same 2022 race setup used by King of the Baggers racer Tyler O’Hara for his second championship win. The limited edition quantity of 29 units celebrates O’Hara’s #29 race number.

“Initially, the idea of ​​road racing baggers baffled many and was downright offensive to some road racing purists. But in just three years, King of the Baggers has become the hottest sport in motorcycle racing Because of the rapidly evolving complexity of these bikes, we thought it would be great to give people the opportunity to own a championship-winning bike,” said Gary Gray, Indian Motorcycle Vice President, Racing, Technology and Service.

The build reads like an S&S Cycle wish list of performance components, including a two-in-one racing exhaust, 17-inch racing wheels, billet-adjustable triple clamps. And the chain drive is converted from the original belt drive. Other racing-oriented components include rear foot controls, carbon fiber saddle bags and fiberglass rear fender, adjustable handlebars and a Saddlemen raised racing seat.

In a 112 CID (1,835.8 cc) large bore cylinder/piston kit V-twin engine, S&S Cycles provides CNC ported cylinder heads, S&S camshafts and intake systems with 78 mm diameter throttle bodies and billet adjustable Rocker arms to unleash their expertise.

Brembo supplies the front SBS pads for its M4 Monobloc four-piston calipers, gripping a pair of 330mm discs. At the rear, a single Hayes caliper grips the EBC rotor with SBS pads.

The Challenger RR’s suspension comes from Ohlins with a pair of FGR250 forks and a TTX rear shock. Rounding out the build is a Maxx fully programmable ECU, an AIM DL2 integrated data logger and instrument cluster, and a quick shifter.

“This bike is the real deal, just like when we released the venerable Indian FTR750, the Indian Challenger RR is a real race bike and not legal. In the right hands, it will be on MotoAmerica’s Mission The podium at the King of the Baggers series,” Gray said.
