When the Indian Scout FTR750 flat track race bike debuted, our comments section was filled with enthusiasts screaming for a production version of the water-cooled 750cc machine.
Well my friends, your prayers have been answered…in part. Indian is making the Scout FTR750 available to anyone who has the coin to spend, with a couple caveats: 1) you will need to pony up $50,000 in order to purchas the bike, and 2) it will be a race-only model.
Still, the news should be exciting for privateer flat track racers who are keen to use Indian’s very trick racing package, which looks to be far more purpose-built than Harley-Davidson’s Street 750 based offering.
This news also helps address some of the jive Harley-Davidson has been throwing Indian’s way in its press materials, as the Bar & Shield brand has been touting the fact that anyone can go and purchase the street version of its race bike at a dealership, a nod to the fact the Indian Scout FTR750 was a one-off machine…until now.
Hopefully the ears are perking at Indian HQ, and something that resembles the FTR750 with lights and a kickstand is working its way through the design and engineering departments. We can dream, right?
Until then, if you are interested in purchasing an Indian Scout FTR750 for your slideways inclinations, all you need to do is head down to your local Indian dealership and place your order. It’s that easy.
