‘1 of 29’: Indian Challenger Race Replica Costs a Pretty Penny
Road racing purists may not like it, but it looks like the King of the Baggers series is here to stay. It might be a bit jarring to see these big bikes throttling down the track when you’re used to seeing the sleeker motorcycles doing so, but it’s also hard to argue against the entertainment value. If you’d like to get in on that new category, you’re in luck.
Indian Motorcycle Racing has made its 2022 racing champion bike available to KOB fans. Although, it comes with a giant price tag of $92,229 USD and isn’t legal for road use… hmm, that spoils our plans. Let’s check it out in detail.

“Originally, the thought of road racing baggers was perplexing to many, and even downright offensive to some road racing purists,” said Gary Gray, the vice president of Racing, Technology, and Service for Indian Motorcycle. 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.
“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,” he said.
Fans can purchase the purpose-built racer with the same hand-crafted, race-tuned setup that claimed the championship. That means you’ll get the S&S 2-1 race exhaust and billet adjustable triple clamps, 17-inch rims with Dunlop race tires, carbon fibre saddle bags, the fixed fairing, aero windshield, AI DEL2 data logger dash, and more.
Perhaps more importantly, you’ll be riding a motorcycle powered by a PowerPlus engine that has been boosted by custom S&S camshafts, a 112 CID big bore cylinder and piston kit, CNC ported cylinder heads, and an S&S air intake with 78mm throttle body. Every inch of the bike is put together by the same team that built the championship bike, and it can be yours for $92,229 USD.
