The Scout FTR1200 Custom is a celebration of the Indian Scout FTR750’s dominant performance in American Flat Track.Inspired by the iconic style of the Scout FTR750, The Scout FTR1200 Custom is an exploration of what a street-legal tracker could look like.The FTR1200 has been built with the help of Indian’s race team, but it’s more than a thinly disguised racer.

It’s a street tracker powered by Indian’s regular 1133 cc V-Twin road engine, which now exhales through a stunning set of high pipes.In FTR1200 trim, the 1133 cc road engine develops similar power to the 748 cc race motor, which is oft quoted at 110 hp at 10,000 rpm. But the road peak will be some 2,000 rpm lower down./bikeexif


The FTR1200’s 427-pound weight would likely preclude it from being used in professional-level flat track racing. The FTR1200 has a two-piece carbon-fiber body with an LED headlight and integrated LED stop/turn/tail light.
