Three-time Australian Superbike Champion Troy Herfoss has signed to race the King of the Baggers in the USA in 2024 with Indian Motorcycle.

Troy Herfoss, the 2023 Australian Superbike Champion has signed on to race in America’s popular King of the Baggers Championship with two-time KOTB Champion Tyler O’Hara, racing an S&S Indian Challenger.

In a press release overnight, Indian Motorcycle stated: “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.”

“To have the opportunity to don Indian Motorcycle Red leathers and compete on behalf of such a historic brand is a true honour,” said Troy 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 that has a championship to its name.”

Gary Gray, Vice President Racing and Service for Indian Motorcycle, added, “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. Backed by the performance capabilities of Indian Motorcycle, we feel we have three riders who could each win a championship in 2024. Jared 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.”
