Indian Motorcycles announced that its new Indian Scout FTR750 bike will make its racing debut at the Ramspur Winery Santa Rosa Mile AMA Pro Flat Track race in Santa Rosa, California on September 25, 2016 this year. The Indian Scout FTR750 will be piloted in its debut race by AMA flat track racing legend Joe Kopp, who 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 Super-tracker Championships. The bike will feature Kopps’ #3 for the weekend. Indian Motorcycle started its official return to professional flat track racing with the public debut of the Indian Scout FTR750 on August 7, 2016 at the legendary Buffalo Chip venue during the Sturgis Rally.
The Indian Scout FTR750 is a clean-sheet design racing machine developed in-house 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 air box and sleek lightweight carbon fibre body. Gary Gray, Product Director for Indian Motorcycle said, “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. 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 Super-Hooligan races in Santa Rosa on the day before, Saturday September 24. Roland Sands and his team from Roland Sands Design (RSD) will be racing their custom Indian Scout Sixty dirt track racers in the Super-Hooligan class.
