Pull out the checkbook, because Indian's new race-only Flat Tracker is now obtainable.

Indian Motorcycles has finally made the FTR750 available to general consumers, albeit ones with deep enough pockets (collectors and race teams predominantly). The rules in the American Flat Track series state that the engines used by race teams have to be based on existing production designs, and because Indian's FTR750 does not share its engine with any other model they offer currently, Indian has now made the entire platform available in a limited run. This was probably spurred on by Harley-Davidson's recent announcement that they will be debuting their new XGR750R for the 2017 American Flat Track series. The XGR750R uses the same basic engine layout as their Street 750, and therefore the platform itself is not available outside the professional ring.

MSRP on the Scout FTR750 is $49,900. However, if you are an approved race team you can get the FTR for a special discounted price of $44,900.

A $5,000 deposit, per bike, must be made up-front and in-total before an order is processed, and Indian will also require a list of background information, including your race team or organization, series you are competing in and years racing, among other details.
