The 2024 Indian FTR x RSD Super Hooligan: A Fusion of Style and Performance

Designed For The Performance-Minded Rider...

Indian Motorcycle, in collaboration with Roland Sands Design (RSD), has unveiled the limited-edition FTR x RSD Super Hooligan, blending the iconic FTR platform with RSD’s signature style and racing spirit.

“The term ‘hooligan’ has taken on an entirely new meaning in the world of motorcycles, characterized by a rebellious, fearless attitude that places having fun on a motorcycle above all else, and that’s what this new FTR is all about,” said Aaron Jax, Vice President, Indian Motorcycle. “Roland Sands has blazed this trail and built the RSD brand around the hooligan lifestyle. From spinning laps on dirt ovals on mid-size cruisers, to today’s competitive racing within the MotoAmerica series, the ethos of hooligan riding has not changed.”

“Super Hooligan has always been about more than just racing. It’s about pushing boundaries and having a blast riding motorcycles with your friends,” said Roland Sands, Founder of RSD®. “Far from the full fairing machines you normally see on the racetrack, a Super Hooligan bike has effortless attitude and a custom aesthetic with an exposed powertrain. When Indian Motorcycle approached us to codesign an Indian FTR for consumers, it was a natural fit, and something we were very excited to be a part of.”

Design and Aesthetics – 

The FTR x RSD Super Hooligan boasts a striking design, featuring Black Metallic bodywork with authentic Super Hooligan race graphics. A classic Indian Motorcycle Red frame, complemented by matching wheels with gold accents, adds a touch of elegance.

To further enhance its racing aesthetics, race team sponsors’ logos adorn the rear seat cowl. Additionally, owners have the option to apply additional graphics provided for the radiator shroud, front fender, and front forks, allowing for customization to suit individual preferences.
