Indian Motorcycle, America’s First Motorcycle Company, today announced its 2024 factory race teams for King Of The Baggers (KOTB), Super Hooligan (SHNC) and American Flat Track (AFT). Running two No. 1 plates in 2024, Indian Motorcycle Racing welcomes the return of reigning champions Tyler O’Hara and Jared Mees, as well as the addition of three-time Australian Superbike Champion Troy Herfoss. The company has also announced more than $450,000 in combined privateer contingency for KOTB, SHNC and AFT.

Tyler O’Hara will defend his Super Hooligan National Championship while trying to recapture the Mission King Of The Baggers title.

“We’re excited to welcome Troy to the Indian Motorcycle family, as he’s a seasoned road racer with a wealth of experience competing at a high level,” said Gary Gray, Vice President Racing and Service for Indian Motorcycle. “Backed by the performance capabilities of Indian Motorcycle, we feel we have three riders who could each win a championship in 2024. Jared (Mees), of course, is eyeing a record-setting 10th-career AFT championship, while Tyler and Troy could both very well be in the hunt for the King Of The Baggers and Super Hooligan Championship. Our team has put in the work this offseason, so we’re excited to get the season rolling and head out to Daytona.” 

MotoAmerica KOTB & SHNC

For 2024, Indian Motorcycle and S&S will put forth a two-man factory race team that will compete in both the KOTB and SHNC classes. Tyler O’Hara enters his fifth year aboard the S&S Indian Challenger, having won the inaugural KOTB race in 2020, and the class championship in 2022.

In addition, 2024 will mark O’Hara’s second year piloting the S&S Indian FTR within the SHNC class, where he’s earned back-to-back class championships.

Troy Herfoss is a three-time Australian Superbike Champion who will make his MotoAmerica debut in 2024.

Racing alongside O’Hara under S&S is three-time Australian Superbike champion Troy Herfoss, a household name in Australian racing. Herfoss transcends boundaries between on and off-road competitions, as he’s recorded championship titles in several forms of motorcycle racing, including Australian Dirt Track, Supermoto, and Supersport. Herfoss was the 2008 AMA Supermoto Champion and a Moto X-Games silver medalist.

“To have the opportunity to don Indian Motorcycle Red leathers and compete on behalf of such a historic brand is a true honor,” said Herfoss. “As a motorsports enthusiast in Australia, I’ve been envious of all the bagger racing taking place in the states, and I’m extremely grateful to have the opportunity to pilot an S&S Indian Challenger and ride for a factory team who has a championship to its name.”

In addition to its factory efforts, Indian Motorcycle is offering up to $131,999 in KOTB privateer contingency and up to $67,249 in SHNC contingency.
