Indian Motorcycle unveils FTR750 flat track racer

Indian Motorcycle has unveiled its all-new FTR750 flat track racer at the 76th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

The Indian Scout FTR750 represents Indian Motorcycle’s bid for a strong return to AMA Pro flat track racing (FTR stands for Flat Track Racer).

The bike was revealed at the “Motorcycles as Art” industry event at the famed Buffalo Chip in Sturgis.

On-hand were two surviving members of the legendary Indian Wrecking Crew, Bobby Hill and Bill Tuman, both of whom are AMA Hall of Fame members. The third member of the orginal Indian Wrecking Crew, Ernie Beckman, passed away in 1999.

The motorcycle was revealed with the #51 of Bill Tuman, the last rider to win a Grand National Championship on an Indian in 1953.

“A heritage of racing and winning is in the lifeblood of this brand, and everyone in attendance was clearly proud to be a part of this important moment in the historic return of Indian Motorcycle to professional flat track racing,” said President of Motorcycles Steve Menneto.

The bike features a high-revving, custom V-Twin engine developed in-house.
