Indian Motorcycle and S&S Cycle have teamed up to commemorate Tyler O’Hara’s 2022 King of the Baggers championship win in a unique and wonderful way.
- only 29 units of the King of the Baggers race bike will be build.
- the limited-run race machine will be built to full 2022 racing specification.
Both parties is creating a limited run of the ‘track-only’ Indian Challenger RR King of the Baggers race. The Indian Challenger RR is an extreme bagger racer that costs around USD100,000 (RM451k) and is built to full 2022 racing specifications, making it impossible to ride on the road.
Based on reports, the UK will only get one bike, while the other 28 will be distributed between Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, and Japan.
The limited-run machines are being built to celebrate O’Hara’s success, and only 29 will be made, which is the number of bikes he ran over the 2022 season.
Based on Indian’s 1768cc Challenger V-twin cruiser, the limited-run Challenger RR will undergo a massive transformation to make it race-ready. The engine will be upgraded with a new camshaft, a 112 CID big-bore cylinder/piston kit, a new air intake, and CNC ported cylinder heads.
Protecting the motor is an S&S belly pan, and sportier foot controls assist with ground clearance. The bike is also fitted with a quickshifter and a billet clutch cover.
The suspension has been upgraded, and 17-inch rims with Dunlop treaded race tires have replaced the standard 19-inch front and 16-inch rear wheels. Fully-adjustable Öhlins FGR250 front forks and an Öhlins TTX rear shock provide excellent handling.
The bike has been converted to chain drive, and the swingarm has been modified to cope with the additional power required in the corners.
Other modifications include:
- carbon fibre saddlebags
- aerodynamic bodywork
- Brembo M4 front calipers
- Chunky 330mm Alpha Racing discs with specialist SBS pads
