Indian FTR750 Daytona Debut

We’re only two weeks away from the official racing debut of Indian’s new FTR750. The last time we saw the FTR in action was at the GNC season finale at Santa Rosa where Joe Kopp finished seventh in the main event. That was a shakedown run, albeit, a very impressive one. Now, with more development time, the current GNC champion Bryan Smith piloting the bike, and a new flat tracker from Harley-Davidson, the XG750R, in the mix, there hasn’t been more anticipation for the flat track opener in Daytona in a long time.

Following the FTR’s debut, MO enlisted the services of multi-time GNC champ Chris Carr to pilot the FTR around the mile track and give us his feedback. You can read about Carr’s insights here: Indian Scout FTR750 Ride Review. Our own John Burns will be on the ground in Florida to witness the historic event in person. Stay tuned for his full report following the race.
