Calling All Junior Wrecking Crewers

Just as Harley-Davidson looks set to dump its Stacyc mini eBike experiment, Indian Motorcycle has partnered with stand-on scooter and balance bike brand Razor for the eFTR Jr - an electric mini replica of the championship-winning FTR750 Flat Tracker - to provide "an approachable, affordable and safe way to 'Share the Love of Riding' with aspiring young riders."

Described as "unique in its dynamic styling" and allowing young riders "to feel like a member of the iconic Indian Motorcycle Wrecking Crew that dominated flat track in the 1950s," it features two ride modes (low and high), a seat height of 23.5 inches and a maximum weight of 175 pounds.
The eFTR Jr can accommodate riders of eight years and older when in low mode, and 13 and over in high mode. The bike's telescopic front forks and mono-shock rear suspension "provide a smooth, comfortable ride, while the bike's rugged steel frame provides a durable structure for beginning riders." It also features dual-disc brakes no less!
"Whether it was a father, mother, uncle or family friend, most motorcyclists have fond memories of the person that introduced them to riding, and that's the spirit behind the eFTR Jr," said Ross Clifford, Vice President of Parts, Garments and Accessories at Indian Motorcycle. "We wanted our first youth offering to be electric to provide a safe, simplistic and clean form of motorcycling for children, all wrapped up in the signature look of the FTR750. The eFTR Jr can kickstart a lifetime of riding memories for the whole family."
Indian Motorcycle says its product development team designed the eFTR Jr around Razor's "trusted and proven electric powertrain." The eFTR Jr's 36 volt rechargeable battery will run for a claimed 140 minutes in low mode at 10 mph and 65 minutes in high mode at 15 mph.
Launching in parallel with the eFTR Jr, Indian Motorcycle is offering a brand-new line of protective youth apparel, including an eFTR Jr helmet, body armor, gloves, and an Indian Motorcycle Racing replica jersey. It is manufactured by Razor USA.
