DIRT FLIRT. Indian Motorcycle Teases with a Scout Street Tracker
In the biggest hint yet that Indian could finally deliver a production Street Tracker, the major American comes correct with this incredible road racer to be unveiled at EICMA this week. Having absolutely dominated the 2017 American Flat Track racing series with the FTR750 the company had all the inspiration they needed to pay homage to the championship-winning machine that decimated the competition. With the all-conquering Wrecking Crew on hand in Milan to lift the cover, Indian are set to present to the world a street legal variant that has mouths watering. Known as the Scout FTR1200 Custom, could this one-off build be the basis for a dream machine coming to a showroom near you.
Before you run to the bank, there is no official word as to the status of a production model, but when Pipeburn sat down with the good folks at Indian the possibility of such a development was woven through the conversation. “As well as honouring Indian’s race team of Jared Mees, Bryan Smith and Brad Baker, the Scout FTR1200 Custom serves as an exploration of how Indian could expand brand perception around the world, with exciting new offerings that are relevant to a wider-ranging consumer set,” explains media man Jeff Millard.
