Indian’s $50k race bike

Indian Motorcycle has announced that its flat track race bike, the Scout FTR750, is now available for purchase – at $50,000 ($66.66 per cubic centimetre; £109.25 per cubic inch/45.77”!). This is the same bike currently being run by Indian’s new “Wrecking Crew” in the American Flat Track series.

A purpose-built, high-performance 750cc V-twin engine powers the Scout FTR750. It features a unique, ultra-light steel frame, large centrally located airbox and sleek lightweight carbon fiber body.  Indian’s design and engineering teams approached the bike as the ultimate combination of advanced performance technology and design elements from Indian’s legendary racing models of the past.
“Since its debut, feedback on the Scout FTR750 has been overwhelmingly positive, with unbelievable interest and demand for the bike,” said Gary Gray, Product Director for Indian Motorcycle. “The bike’s availability to all race teams will help further establish Indian Motorcycle’s presence in American flat track racing.”
The Scout FTR750 made its official debut during the 2016 season finale, when AMA flat track racing legend Joe Kopp raced it at the Santa Rosa Mile. For 2017, Indian Motorcycle Racing, backed by Allstate, comprises three of the most successful and decorated flat track riders in the sport, including 2016 Grand National Champion Bryan Smith, 2013 Grand National Champion Brad Baker, and three-time Grand National Champion Jared Mees. All three will be running the Scout FTR750 this season.
