Highlighted by a limited-edition FTR x 100% R Carbon, the 2024 lineup features a new Indian Challenger Elite, a completely redesigned PowerBand Audio system, and updates across the entire Indian Motorcycle lineup.
The 2024 Indian Motorcycle lineup delivers a robust offering of American V-Twin motorcycles unlike anything else on the road. Featuring quality craftsmanship, world-class performance and iconic style, Indian Motorcycle features a wide lineup ranging from the sleek and stylish FTR street bike to its Scout and Chief cruisers, to a diverse range of baggers and touring models, including the Indian Super Chief, Indian Springfield, Chieftain, Indian Challenger and fully loaded Roadmaster and Indian Pursuit models.
“It’s amazing to think how far we’ve come in developing and expanding our lineup of motorcycles, delivering a wide range of new models and trim offerings in a variety of styles to meet the diverse tastes and needs of our global riding community,” said Mike Dougherty, President of Indian Motorcycle. “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.”
FTR x 100% R Carbon
Indian Motorcycle has teamed up with 100% to celebrate riders who dare to carve their own path. With 100% linked to iconic moments that have built today’s modern motocross and Indian Motorcycle’s celebrated 123-year history in motorcycling, these two American brands have helped shape the rich fabric of motorcycling with their respective trailblazing spirts.
Pulling styling cues from 100%’s roots in action sports, the FTR x 100% R Carbon has been beautifully designed for the performance-minded rider who wants to stand out from the crowd. The bike features a one-of-a-kind Blue Candy carbon fiber tank, headlight nacelle, seat cowl and front fender. Its bright white powder coated frame pops, while gloss paint finishes and red accents throughout deliver a high-quality fit and finish.
Collectively, the FTR x 100% R Carbon is a raw slice of Americana. Built on the top-of-the-line FTR R Carbon, the FTR x 100% R Carbon features even more upgrades and details that set it apart. Striking Indian Motorcycle and 100% co-branding highlight each tank side, its rear seat cowl, and the chin fairing. Race-ready Öhlins® front forks and rear shock spring get custom blacked out treatment for 100% more attitude. A black-finished Titanium Akrapovič exhaust and carbon fiber components — engine covers, chain guard and exhaust heat shield — add custom detailing expected on a limited-edition model. Exacting attention to craftmanship shines with Gilles Tooling parts, including bar-end weights, oil cap and radiator cap.
Nothing is standard about the performance of FTR x 100% R Carbon: featuring a 120-horsepower, liquid-cooled V-twin engine with 87 ft-lb of torque, radially mounted dual-disc Brembo® brakes, a 4-Inch Touchscreen Display Powered by RIDE COMMAND with turn-by-turn navigation, Bluetooth® connectivity and three selectable ride modes, Rain, Standard and Sport, which deliver a personalized riding experience.
Launching alongside the limited-edition FTR x 100% R Carbon is an exclusive Indian Motorcycle x 100% apparel collection. Offering a diverse mix of men’s and women’s lifestyle pieces, the collection includes long and short sleeved tops, hoodies, hats, beanies, and sunglasses. The co-branded apparel collection is available in men’s sizes S-3XL and women’s sizes XS-2XL.

Redesigned for Indian Motorcycle baggers and touring models, upgraded PowerBand Audio kits raise the bar for premium audio systems with 100-watt speakers that produce higher volume, increased clarity, and more bass. Answering the call from riders, each speaker touts UnderGlow LED accent lighting, which delivers a custom-inspired look that stands out compared to standard audio systems.
The next-generation of PowerBand Audio features powerful sound, all-new styling, factory-backed quality, and easy installation.
The 100-watt PowerBand Audio speakers deliver an immediate increase in volume and clarity over the standard 50-watt speakers. PowerBand Audio’s new Bass Boost Tune makes the music come alive with deeper bass lines, which result in 50% more bass when compared to previous PowerBand Audio offerings. New Dynamic EQ auto-optimizes in real-time for the highest quality audio as speed and conditions change. Speakers are durable, water-resistant and deliver an immersive listening experience – expertly designed to cut through road, wind, and throttle noise.
Featuring updated, custom-inspired style, PowerBand Audio speakers sport a chiseled, modern look and UnderGlow, soft-white LED accent rings. The titanium-plated dome stands out from the crowd and ensures the speakers look as good as they sound.
Intuitive Audio Controls
Once installed, Indian Motorcycle’s industry-leading, 7 Inch Touchscreen Display powered by RIDE COMMAND automatically recognizes PowerBand Audio speakers and immediately upgrades the bike’s Audio menu. With PowerBand Audio, riders receive a nine-band equalizer to fully customize settings and dial-in levels for any music genre.
PowerBand Audio’s Power Supply Temperature Protection actively monitors circuit temperature and adjusts to prevent internal damage or system shutdown in extreme heat conditions. The rugged design is water-resistant with an Ultra Coat sealing that provides protection from water, dirt, and debris. PowerBand Audio is designed and engineered in the U.S.A. and is backed by a factory warranty.
Installation is easy. No wire cutting, extra amps, or brackets are required – delivering a seamless installation process at your local dealership or at home.
Select Indian Motorcycle baggers and touring models will be available straight off the dealership floor with PowerBand Audio pre-installed at the factory. The new PowerBand Audio system is compatible with 2020-2024 models with seamless installation.
Riders can take their audio system up to 800-watts, including 200-watts in the upper fairing, 200-watts in the lower fairings, 200-watts in the saddlebags, and 200-watts in the touring trunk. Riders can also update their PowerBand Audio system in their 2020-2023 baggers and touring models with the Bass Boost Tune software upgrade at their local dealership. All 2024 and newer motorcycles will come standard with the Bass Boost Tune, which will automatically come alive once PowerBand Audio speakers are installed.
2024 Model Year Lineup
In addition to exciting new paint colors, Indian Motorcycle has improved fit and finish on baggers and touring models, as models receive a gloss paint finish across the dash visor, storage door, dash trim and gauge bezel.
