Indian Motorcycle and Indian Wrecking Crew Racing Legends Unveil New Scout FTR750 for AMA Flat Track Competition

Indian Motorcycle Wrecking Crew Living Legends, Bobby Hill and Bill
Tuman on-hand in Sturgis to celebrate historic return to professional

®, America’s first motorcycle company, unleashed its
all-new Indian Scout FTR750 flat track race bike in a place synonymous
with the brand – the 76th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. The event is
the latest milestone in the historic return to professional flat track
racing for the brand, while the Indian Scout FTR750 represents Indian
Motorcycle’s bid for a stong return to AMA flat track racing.

The Indian Scout FTR750 was revealed at the “Motorcycles as Art”
industry event that took place at the famed Buffalo Chip in Sturgis.
Special guests on-hand were the two surviving members of the legendary
Indian Wrecking Crew, Bobby Hill and Bill Tuman, both of whom are AMA
Hall of Fame members. The third member of the Wrecking Crew, Ernie
Beckman, passed away in 1999. The motorcycle featured the #51 of Bill
Tuman, as a tribute to the last rider to win a Grand National
Championship on an Indian in 1953.

“A heritage of racing and winning is in the lifeblood of this brand, and
everyone in attendance was clearly proud to be a part of this important
moment in the historic return of Indian Motorcycle to professional flat
track racing,” said President of Motorcycles Steve Menneto. “We have an
incredible team of engineers and designers working on this initiative,
and all of us are deeply committed to building a world-class racing
program that will live up to our legendary history on the track.”

The all-new Indian Scout FTR750 features a high-revving, custom V-Twin
engine developed in-house and is wrapped in a unique steel frame that
allows for a tight wheelbase, large centrally located airbox and unique
lightweight carbon fiber body. The design of the race-only bike reflects
the heritage of key Indian racing models from history including the Big
Base Scout; a historic bike that won in Daytona, dominated events across
the country and is still raced in Vintage competition today.

More information on the race only Indian Scout FTR750 will be made
available in the future. The motorcycle will be on display in the AMA
Paddock at the Black Hills Speedway during the fans walk, and will be
shown in the Indian Motorcycle factory display on Lazelle Street through
the rally week.
