Indian Scout FTR750 Flat Track Race Bike Debuts

Two months ago, we showed you Indian’s very purpose-built v-twin engine, which the American company would use to go flat track racing. Today, we can show you the completed machine, the Indian Scout FTR750.

Back the to the Indian Scout FTR750 though, the bike features an all-new high-reving race-built v-twin engine. The chassis is a bespoke tubular steel frame, with a focus on keeping a short wheelbase, centrally locating the large airbox, and using carbon fiber bodywork.

AMA Grand National Champion Jered Mees has been helping Indian dial-in the Scout FTR750, aiding Indian in its hopes to officially enter AMA Pro Flat Track for the 2017 season.

It should be noted that the release of the Indian Scout FTR750 comes to use around the same time when Harley-Davidson announced its formal return to flat track racing, debuting the Harley-Davidson XG750R – the first purpose-built flat track racer from the Bar & Shield brand in 44 years.

We do not believe this to be a coincidence.

    “This bike has no front brakes” – rolls off stage.

  • Alclab

  • LeDelmo

  • Starmag

    Beauitful. Street version please.

  • Eric

    ..and right away! This thing is Bee-youuutifulll!!!!

  • Gary

    Hey Polaris, make the d@mn street version! We need more interesting bikes in the world. Too many years of molded plastic style statements has dumbed-down people’s expectations. Something raw (without software rider aids) would just nail it.

    Now that is bad ass! Lots of taste bits. I like how the gas tank is so low, its bottom edge lower then the seat. Just compare to the Yamaha FJ-09 or a Triumph Tiger where your knees don’t even touch the tank but are many inches lower. Can you say low center of gravity?
    I especially like how the exhaust pipe headers are routed something that usually looks awkward and ungainly with a V-twin I’m imagining a SS louvered heat shield like a pre-war Alfa Romeo GP car. Equal length? I can hardly wait, Let the fun and games begin while we still can, In the good ole USA?

  • Randy Moran

    Wow, that’s really nice looking. The tank reminds of a Honda VT500 Ascot on which I learned to ride these many years ago. I love it.

    Sub 400 pounds, Sub $12k, 100-ish HP, in street legal trim.
    Ducati did it, and so you can you Indian.
    Please make it so!
