Breaking News. Indian Scout FTR750 Flat Track Race Bike Now available For Purchase. MSRP $50,000.

Last Year at the the 76th Sturgis Rally Indian Motorcycle celebrated the historic return of Indian to professional racing with the unveiled of the Scout FTR750 Flat-Track Racer. This FT750 is now available for purchase for the 2017 American Flat Track season. If you like to buy one, stop by your nearest Indian Motorcycle dealership.

“Since its debut, feedback on the Scout FTR750 has been overwhelmingly positive, with unbelievable interest and demand for the bike,” said Indian Motorcycle Product Director Gary Gray. ” The bike’s availability to all race teams will help further establish Indian Motorcycle’s presence in American flat track racing.”

The FTR features a high-performance 750cc V-Twin engine that produces 109 hp. The unique, ultra-light steel frame, large centrally located airbox and sleek lightweight carbon fiber body add up for a flat-track machine. Designed with Indian’s legendary racing models of the past, combined with modern performance technology, this FTR gets the best of both worlds.

AMA Flat Track competition is heating up with the renewed racing rivalry between Indian and Harley-Davidson. The 18-round American Flat Track series will debut in Daytona Beach at the Speedway on March 16. Tickets are for sale HERE. Indian’s flat track team includes 2016 Grand National Champion Bryan Smith, 2013 Grand National Champion Brad Baker, and three-time Grand National Champion Jared Mees. All three of which will be running on Indian’s flat track Scout FTR750

    I heard about this on Instagram days ago. Sell a street version for under 10 grand and then maybe we’ll talk.

    You would think they would announce that on their web site…

  3. 3 economessed Mar 3rd, 2017 at 11:42 am

    I was considering this bike, but I only have $49,830 to spend, so I guess I’ll keep looking.

    JohnnySpeed, you pretty much took the words right out of my mouth. I’ve pretty much written Harley Davidson off as far as consideration for a new bike but I definitely could get behind a cheaper street version of this!

    is Polaris following the lead of the medical industry in ridiculous pricing? shit, maybe there will soon be a market for new toy insurance just to even hope to buy this stuff.

  6. 6 Fritz Mar 3rd, 2017 at 3:05 pm

    $50G? Better put all of us down for two.
    …..,,,,, Yeah, right…….. Looks like fun though.

  7. 7 Chris Mar 3rd, 2017 at 4:19 pm

    For a purpose-built race bike likely built in a small batch and undoubtedly using the highest quality components, $50,000 doesn’t seem entirely unreasonable.

    It sure looks like a whole lot of fun to beat the snot out of.

    109 HP light as a feather and no front brake, sorry but I’m not brave enough!

  9. 9 fuji Mar 3rd, 2017 at 8:41 pm

    Strictly a race bike. but you will need two. maybe an extra engine a mechanic plus engine builder plus a truck ,fuel, lots of tires, overnight stays.= lots of dollars. Now you can see why the majority of flat track bikes are Kawasaki.

  10. 10 Pat h Mar 3rd, 2017 at 8:47 pm

    Yah it’s older news but turn key race bike if it’s competitive may not be that large of money for some, do they have the factory backing

  11. 11 fuji Mar 3rd, 2017 at 9:42 pm

    I would assume that a race engine only will be available to some to put in a chassis of their own. You may find a privateer could develop a better [engine chassis ] combination.

    I would assume that the factory backed teams will be massaging there bikes to fit their needs much more than what the factory gave them.

    Just because its a factory bike doesn’t mean that it can’t be complimented by individual factory teams doing modifications. The teams are the knowledgeable people of the sport.

    Ask V&H if you can buy one of the HD flat trackers. Most likely right after they will sell you a V&H “VRod” Prostock bike.

  13. 13 RickkciR Mar 4th, 2017 at 8:00 am

    They have to make 50 of them , to race in this class? Correct?

    I guessing that bike ain’t intended for 99.9% of the folks reading this blog … or wandering through a dealership

  14. 14 Chris Mar 4th, 2017 at 9:10 am

    Only 50K….At that price I’ll take two!

  15. 15 Drew Mar 4th, 2017 at 9:38 am

    I’ll take 2, sell for under 10K, put lights on it and I’ll buy one, pricing like the medical industry……

    Proverbs 18:2

    How about pricing out one 2017 MotoGP team effort for ANY brand of motorcycle.

  16. 16 Uthinkuknowme Mar 4th, 2017 at 10:38 am

    You can get 109 HP and 100 ft.lb torque out of a well built 95″ twin cam. Put it in an FXDX frame/suspension combo and you have the bike that many people are wanting for the street. Sure, it’s a little heavier but guaranteed smile on your face when you twist the throttle. Best bike I have owned and I’ve had 10 HD’s in the past 20 years. And, you won’t break your bank account. I think I have under $7K in that setup.

  17. 17 Tom Mar 4th, 2017 at 10:41 am

    No if I order two can I get separate shipping and handling and or will they combine shipping and handling

  18. 18 Shanedrive Mar 4th, 2017 at 10:47 am

    Not dissin’ any of the commenters but……………..have any of you guys looked into what it actually takes to race professionally? 50k for a bike is just the tip of the iceberg. The logistics that go with it to support the bike is mind numbing.

    Why do you think race teams-in any sport, (2,3,4 wheels, on water, on snow in the air or whatever) are plastered with sponsors? It’s because it’s super expensive.

    To reach the level of MAJOR sponsorship, you have to invest (usually) your own money, win many races for “X” number of seasons in amateur classes (this means lots of traveling that is expensive) & promote yourself & your team’s reputation to said sponsors in hopes that one or more will sign on and give you the big bucks so you can make the leap to the professional level. It’s a very difficult row to hoe.

    My kid likes to race bikes off road. He’s always pestering me to use MY truck. It’s MY truck, not his. I try to pound it into his head (he’s 28) that the logistics are the expensive part, the bike is the cheapest part.

    I also always like this saying about racing the best: “Do you know how to make a small fortune racing?…………Start with a big one”. Peace out!

  19. 19 Jerrman Mar 4th, 2017 at 12:09 pm

    What I’ve been saying all along. Polaris is sitting on the future of Indian and a path to end run HD with a street version of this bike at $8-10K. It’s where the new and some older riders want to be. Make it and they will come.

  20. 20 SIGFREED Mar 4th, 2017 at 12:49 pm

    Some perspective for the peanut gallery:

    A MotoGP bike costs ~$2million – an average one.

    Moto2, a 600cc bike with a single engine for all teams (basically a standard Honda CBR600RR motor tuned by a Spanish crowd if I remember correctly, in a bespoke race chassis with open designs within certain rules), can be rented for a season for ~$120,000. Used Moto2 bikes (one to two seasons back) can be had for today’s special of $75,000 – $100,000 depending on vintage and/or race success. Expect to whip out upwards of $200,000 to own a new 2017 model.

    Btw: the Honda Moto2 engine delivers ~140hp and the bikes average ~1hp/kg.

    It’s a chunk of money for sure, but not too crazy for a race bike. How much were those V-Rod Destroyer drag bikes H-D was selling a while bike going for? And that was just to race 1/4 mile in a straight line in a class they created specially just for those bikes.

    I think it looks awesome, and more importantly it’s great to see Indian and H-D getting serious about racing dirt track again.

  22. 22 Pat h Mar 5th, 2017 at 9:02 am

    Destroyers were 31k dragracing ain’t cheap or easy

  23. 23 Actwin Mar 5th, 2017 at 1:45 pm

    109 hp out of a Harley? That thing ain’t gonna last long plus at almost 600lbs it won
    ‘t go around a corner wortha damn. You could spend a lot less on an FZ 09 and get more power better suspension and real brakes.

  24. 24 Hillbilly Jim Mar 5th, 2017 at 3:31 pm

    The guys bitching about 50k for a factory turn key race machine have never raced competitively or are joking. In 1978 i was the driver for a father/son race team. We probably had 6k tied up in the whole nut, including transporter and we were always in the top 5 but the winners had over 10 k in just their engines and did I mention that was to win a $500 feature. So since that was in 78 wonder what that would be in 2017 $ ???

  25. 25 Uthinkuknowme Mar 6th, 2017 at 6:03 am

    Actwin- It’s lasted for 45,000 miles and still kicking today. True, it is 600 lb. but as far as HD goes, it handles very well. There are a lot of 100/100 HD’s out there, you just have to know how to squeeze it out of a 95″. Sure, there are a lot of “other choices” for faster more powerful bikes, I can’t argue that.

  26. 26 Coffeebeans Mar 6th, 2017 at 9:49 am

    50 bucks says if the FZR is a winner on the track..(and we’ll find out in a week and a half)…then Indian will shortly thereafter field a street version of this, to go head to head with the Ducati and Triumph Scramblers.
    They price it in the $7K to 8K range, and they won’t be able to build them fast enough to keep up with demand.

    Oh, and $50K for a hand made, race-ready, purpose built track bike is actually pretty damn reasonable.

  27. 27 Mdkuder Mar 6th, 2017 at 11:09 am

    I think it’s a great price but way out of my reach. Serious professionals though this is one item they can purchase pretty much ready to race less the spare parts including gearing etc………… Great job Indian!

  28. 28 rcupp Mar 6th, 2017 at 8:12 pm

    You’d buy it if it was under 10k?Really?
    It’s called a fucking Scout!
