“Fully loaded with models and styles for the widest range of riders, the 2023 lineup is a powerful testament to our team’s relentless effort to build and refine a truly comprehensive product offering over the past nine years,” said Mike Dougherty, President for Indian. “This effort has been focused across the line and within each model lineup, as evidenced by the introduction of the FTR Sport”.

The 2023 FTR Lineup
Headlining the 2023 model year news is the introduction of a new FTR Sport. Replacing FTR S, the FTR Sport sits just below the premium FTR R Carbon. Indian say that it has been designed for riders to cut loose and enjoy the pure sport of motorcycling, the FTR Sport’s bold aesthetics and sporty componentry, including a number plate, chin fairing and seat cowl, take the FTR’s energetic attitude to another level.

New for 2023, the FTR Sport and FTR R Carbon are upgraded with a four-inch round touchscreen display powered by RIDE COMMAND, featuring navigation. Three ride modes (Sport, Standard, Rain) provide unique performance experiences for varying preferences and riding conditions, while Lean Angle Sensitive Stability Control and ABS provide confident, predictable handling in all conditions.

The FTR R Carbon separates itself as the premium offering with carbon fibre components, premium seat, fully adjustable Öhlins gold front forks and a gold piggyback shock. The FTR Sport touts a new tank panel design and is available in Black Metallic with Indy Red accents and White Lightning with Indy Red and Black Metallic accents. The iconic Indian script logo tank panels are exclusive to the FTR R Carbon, which is finished with a classy Cloud Silver and Championship Gold pinstriping.



While primary componentry carry-over for FTR, all FTR models now offer a new sports exhaust muffler and a retuned front braking system, which provides a firmer feel. Indian Motorcycle also moved the speedometer up for easier viewing and added a new clutch for improved feel and performance.

For riders looking for something more exclusive and elevated from the rest, Indian Motorcycle is offering the 2023 Indian Challenger Elite.

2023 Indian Challenger Elite
For riders looking for something more exclusive and elevated from the rest, Indian Motorcycle is offering the 2023 Indian Challenger Elite. With only 150 available around the world, the limited-
edition bagger makes a bold statement with its premium Sapphire Blue Smoke Paint with Black Smoke and Titanium Metallic Smoke Accents.

Indian say the PowerPlus engine, its premium amenities and advanced ride-enhancing technology deliver a ride experience that’s second to none. Indian Challenger Elite’s long list of premium features includes the following: three selectable ride modes, electronically adjustable rear suspension preload from Fox, Smart Lean Technology, an adaptive LED Headlight, LED driving lights, an adjustable flare windscreen, select floorboards, heated grips, 6.5in Powerband Audio with Saddlebag Speakers, and a new Precision Cut five-spoke wheel. All-in, whether riding two-up for a weekend adventure or commuting solo, the Indian Challenger Elite delivers the ultimate in style and exclusivity.



2023 LINEUP: A Diverse Range for More Riders The 2023 Indian Motorcycle lineup offers a host of new upgrades, including:

  • All Thunderstroke and PowerPlus models receive a new clutch – improving the overall feel and forgiveness. This new slipper clutch reduces engine drag, providing a smoother down-shifting experience and comfortable ride while improving your ability to maintain traction when facing poor road conditions. Lastly, the larger friction zone and decreased lever effort reduces your clutch fatigue, which can be beneficial in urban areas or when riding in traffic.
  • Indian Springfield, Chieftain, Challenger, Roadmaster and Pursuit models feature a redesigned LED headlight, which improves the reach and spread of light, helping the rider see what lies ahead and improving their visibility to other motorists on the road.
  • Integrated buttons on the Heated/Cooled seats for PowerPlus and Thunderstroke models now feature haptics, which allows riders to feel the button’s responsiveness when wearing gloves.
  • Indian Pursuit models now offer Lower Fairing Storage compartments as standard.

Sign Up

Across the line, Indian Motorcycle has introduced an array of new paint colours, including Sagebrush Smoke on Chief Dark Horse and Stryker Red Metallic on Super Chief Limited, Pursuit Dark Horse and Roadmaster Limited models. While Titanium Smoke is introduced to Challenger Dark Horse. Check out all the colour options here.
