Indian Motorcycle Makes History Again with Racing Debut of Indian Scout FTR750 at the Ramspur Winery Santa Rosa Mile AMA Pro Flat Track Race on September 25

®, America’s first motorcycle company, today
confirmed that its all-new Indian Scout FTR750 race bike will make its
racing debut on Sunday, September 25 at the Ramspur Winery Santa Rosa
Mile AMA Pro Flat Track race in Santa Rosa, California. The race takes
place at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds at 1350 Bennett Valley Rd. in
Santa Rosa, with gates opening at 11 am PDT.

The #3 Indian Motorcycle FTR750 will be piloted in its debut by AMA flat
track racing legend Joe Kopp. Joe is one of 15 riders to complete the
Dirt Track “Grand Slam,” with victories on short track, TT, half-mile,
and mile courses. In addition to his 2000 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand
National Championship, he took the 1999 and 2000 AMA 600 Hotshot and
Supertracker Championships.

Indian Motorcycle accelerated its historic journey toward the official
return to professional flat track racing with the public debut of the
Indian Scout FTR750 on August 7 at the legendary Buffalo Chip venue in
Sturgis, South Dakota. On-hand for the epic, invitation-only event were
Bobby Hill and Bill Tuman, two surviving members of the legendary Indian
Wrecking Crew, both AMA Hall of Famers, along with hundreds of
motorcycle industry dignitaries and members of the press.

The Indian Scout FTR750 is a clean-sheet design racing machine developed
by the Indian Motorcycle Racing engineering and design teams. The bike
is powered by a purpose-developed, high performance 750cc V-Twin engine
and features a unique, ultra-light steel frame, large centrally located
airbox and sleek lightweight carbon fiber body. Much like the design
philosophy behind Indian Motorcycle’s family of production bikes, the
design and engineering teams built the FTR750 to artfully combine
state-of-the-art technologies with design elements from legendary Indian
racing models from history.

“It’s a proud moment for all of us at Indian Motorcycle to get the
Indian Scout FTR750 on the track and formally launch our professional
flat track racing program,” said Gary Gray, Product Director for Indian
Motorcycle. “We’re delighted to have Joe Kopp riding for us at this
historic debut event, and we look forward to a robust and highly
competitive racing schedule for 2017.”

Leading up to the AMA Pro Flat Track event, Indian Motorcycle will
sponsor the Pro/Am Hooligan and RSD SuperHooligan races in Santa Rosa on
September 24. Saturday’s action kicks off at 4:30 pm PDT at the Sonoma
County Fairgrounds in the Chris Beck Arena. Participating in the
