Indian Motorcycle Celebrates 2022 King of the Baggers Championship With Ultra-Limited Indian Challenger RR

An homage to Tyler O’Hara’s No. 29, only 29 Indian Challenger race bikes offer a rare opportunity for riders and collectors to own the undisputed King of the Baggers.

In celebration of Indian Motorcycle Racing and S&S Cycle’s 2022 King of the Baggers championship season, America’s First Motorcycle Co. announced the retail availability of 29 highly exclusive Indian Challenger RR motorcycles. Built to 2022 race spec by the same S&S hands that wrenched Tyler O’Hara’s No. 29 championship-winning bike, each purpose-built Indian Challenger RR is available for die-hard track riders and collectors for a premium price of $92,229.

The Indian Challenger RR marks the first-time fans can purchase a purpose-built race bagger. Hand-crafted and race-tuned with the same setup that won O’Hara’s second King of the Baggers championship, Indian Motorcycle and S&S are offering fans and collectors the unique opportunity to own a piece of history.

“Originally, the thought of road racing baggers was perplexing to many, and even downright offensive to some road racing purists. But in just three short years, King of the Baggers has emerged as the hottest thing in motorcycle racing as these bikes have rapidly evolved in their sophistication, and we thought it would be awesome to give people the opportunity to own the bike that holds the crown,” said Gary Gray, vice president – racing, technology and service for Indian Motorcycle. “We’re excited to embrace the fandom of bagger racing and celebrate our second title with this highly exclusive, special run of Indian Challenger RR motorcycles. This bike is the real deal, much like when we released the venerable FTR750, the Challenger RR is a true race bike and is not street legal. Put in the right hands, it will reach the podium in MotoAmerica’s Mission King of the Baggers race series.”

  • S&S 2-1 race exhaust

Racing, and winning, has long been a core element within the Indian Motorcycle brand DNA. Founded by racers, driven to innovate by a desire to go faster and win races, Indian Motorcycle has been racing, and winning, for 122 years. From Oscar Hedstrom’s endurance racing dominance at the turn of the century to O.C. Godfrey winning at the famed Isle of Man in 1911 to Burt Munro’s land-speed records to the original Wrecking Crew’s dominance in the ‘50s and the modern Wrecking Crew’s six consecutive American Flat Track Championships from 2017 to 2022 to the 2022 Super Hooligan Championship on the FTR and the brand’s two King of the Baggers Championships in 2020 and 2022, the list of history-making racing milestones for Indian Motorcycle is unparalleled.
