The Indian Scout FTR750, Flat Track’s Most Dominant Motorcycle, Now Available with

Unmatched Incentives for Race Teams & Privateers

MINNEAPOLIS (October 11, 2017) – Indian Motorcycle Racing, which captured the 2017 American Flat Track Manufacturer’s Championship, is offering professional flat track race teams and privateers unmatched incentives to compete on its premier Scout FTR750 race bike.

Jared Mees, the 2017 Grand National Champion, won 10 races and set a new single-season record with 17 total podiums.

The bike’s superiority was further exemplified at the Lone Star Half-Mile, when privateer Johnny Lewis captured his only podium of the season in his first race aboard the Scout FTR750.

“After a historic return to professional racing, and the incredible success of the Scout FTR750 and our factory team, we are committing to support privateer racers who ride an Indian in 2018,” said Reid Wilson, Marketing Director – Indian Motorcycle. “Beyond the Indian Wrecking Crew, we received strong and enthusiastic feedback from select privateer riders who raced the Scout FTR750 during the 2017 season.”
