2018 new Indian FTR1200 Flat Track street legal details & action photos

The Scout FTR1200 Custom takes inspiration from the Scout FTR750 flat track race bike that Indian’s “Wrecking Crew” piloted throughout a dominating Championship season in the 2017 American Flat Track Series. Built in partnership with Indian’s race team, this one-off custom houses the Scout’s street-legal 1133cc V-Twin engine.
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.
Out of the 18 flat track races that took place in 2017, the Indian Wrecking Crew took 37 of the 54 podium positions available, including six podium sweeps and 14 race wins, bringing Indian the manufacturer’s title and Mees his fifth AMA Grand National Championship.
Not only that, Mees, Smith and Baker swept the 2017 AFT Championship – placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
Mees tallied 10 wins out of 18 races and set a new single-season record of 17 finishes on the podium, while Smith was on the podium nine times, with four wins, three runner-ups and two third-place finishes. Baker tallied 10 podiums, despite being out with an injury and unable to compete in the final two races. He earned five runner-ups and five third-place finishes.
Indian was thrilled to host the Wrecking Crew at the EICMA show in Milan to unveil the Scout FTR1200 Custom. The President of Motorcycles, Steve Menneto, said: “We built this bike to celebrate the FTR750’s dominant performance in American Flat Track and Indian’s return to racing. To come up with this one-off custom, we worked closely with the Indian Motorcycle Racing team to execute a vision of what a bike could look like if we brought the FTR platform to the street.
“We’ve built a strong foundation in the Cruiser, Bagger, Tourer (CBT) segment over the past five years and we are excited by the positive feedback on the FTR750 and the opportunities to grow the brand globally in the next five years.”
Following EICMA, the Scout FTR1200 Custom will go on a World Tour and exhibited at events throughout 2018 to help the brand to continue to expand its reach.
Indian’s Marketing Director, Reid Wilson, adds: “Indian has a rich racing history of winning and we aim to continue that with the FTR platform and beyond. As was the case with Indian’s original founders, we are using racing to develop, test and showcase the capabilities of our motorcycles. Indian will push boundaries by developing new products that will expand rider perceptions of American motorcycles. We plan to be respectful of Indian’s rich heritage, while expanding the reach of the brand over the long-term horizon.”
Meanwhile Indian’s VP/GM in Europe, Grant Bester, said he is excited to see the reaction to this custom bike in the European market: “While the US has the American Flat Track series, we too have seen a growth in flat track racing right here in Europe. Numerous Indian Scouts have been modified for flat track racing and the sport is becoming increasingly popular across Europe. This custom build will gain some attention as it goes on its World Tour and we will be really interested in the consumer feedback.”

2018 new Harley-Davidson Softail Sport Glide studio +details & action photos

2018 new Harley-Davidson Softail Sport Glide studio +details & action photos
Devour endless miles with some room for gear. Or, strip it down and shred city streets at a blistering pace. The all-new Sport Glide™ is locked and loaded for whatever, whenever. You’ll be riding on the most advanced frame we’ve ever offered – the completely redesigned Softail.® Inverted front forks and a fully adjustable, monoshock rear suspension let you dial-in the perfect combination of performance and comfort. And the rigid-mounted, counterbalanced Milwaukee-Eight® 107 engine delivers piles of white-knuckle power the way only a Harley-Davidson can. So strip it down or load it up. Either way, the all-new Sport Glide® is ready to take you on the ride of a lifetime.

NEW FOR 2018
All-New Softail® Frame – The Sport Glide™ motorcycle rides on the completely redesigned Softail® frame which makes for a lightweight, nimble ride that defies what people think of both Harley-Davidson Custom and Touring motorcycles.

New Suspension – Inverted front forks and a new rear monoshock with external preload adjustment give riders the ability to customize their handling profile for any situation; including extra cargo and/or passengers.

Milwaukee-Eight® Engine – Utilizing the Milwaukee-Eight® 107 engine, the Sport Glide™ motorcycle has enough power and torque to go almost anywhere quickly. Rigid mounting and internal counterbalancing allows for a smooth ride without giving up the Harley feel that riders know and love.

Detachable Locking Saddlebags – Sport Glide™ motorcycles offer locking rigid saddle bags standard. These bags offer quick, tool-free on and off so the rider can quickly switch from a custom touring bike to a stripped down stylish custom cruiser in minutes.

Front Mini-Fairing – The quick detach front mini-faring allows for an attitude change on the fly. Put it on for more comfort on a long ride, or remove it for the stripped down cruiser style. It introduces a new H-D riding experience by taking wind off the rider’s chest while allowing the air in your face that riders love and expect from a motorcycle. The Sport Glide™ motorcycle is factory custom at its finest.

Aggressive Styling – A blacked out Milwaukee-Eight® 107 engine, all-new aggressive “Mantis” black and silver cast wheels, and black mufflers, give the Sport Glide™ motorcycle a stealthy style.

Modern technologies – The Sport Glide™ motorcycle has a slew of modern amenities, including a LED forward-lighting system and a keyless ignition. Giving the rider the modern features that they have come to expect on a new bike, with Harley-Davidson soul
