  • Indian

    I never thought I would own an Indian in a million years, but this thing is giving me a full mongrel.

    The worst thing about Indians is they always ask you to send bob and vagena

      I don’t know if I’d buy one but I’d like to have one for a weekend.

        Had to do a little bit of googling to see whether that thing is actually an official bike made buy Indian or just another custom built up in a work shop of wonderfully imaginative and highly skilled individuals.

        Turns out it's real, whether it'll make it to Australian shores is unknown.

        I like it, quite a lot actually, since current Scout and Scout Bobber have already been on my radar but this is far more appealing. Also I like to think I have quite a few more years of riding until a riding position with feet in front of my shoulders becomes a necessity. So if one turns up here, I'll give it a crack.

        That makes it now 4 different bikes that I have my eyes on as I start to move away from full blown sports bikes.

            The Monsters have their place in civilised society but I have always loved the look and idea of the "Flat trackers", lots of engine, a seat, wheels and no brakes.

            Harley will no doubt have one out soon as well.

            edit: Yes the Indian certainly ticks the boxes, just need to disconnect the brakes for that devil may care uncouth FTW feel.

              Looks like the Traction Control isn't too overbearing! Certainly good to see someone resisting the trend of the massive rear hoop. Would make it handle much better - not to mention how much cheaper the tyres are...

                      Nice looking machine.

                      Wonder what the price would be, hope they are not looking at premium or exclusive prices as this is a kiss of death unless you are Ducati.

                        The Indian Scout flat tracker builds RSD and Carey Hart did weren't too bad either, but liking the single shock swinger in the FTR1200 concept better

                        RSD have done a few of these tracker builds with the Scout as a base: https://www.rolandsands.com/blog/624...-flat-trackers

                        Love this all black everywhere build too

                          Looking at #23 above, it appears it's designed for those that no longer wish to have a right knee/leg, preferring to burn it to a crisp.

                            Right-turn-only-flat-track-right-leg-out-type-approach - good training mechanism to help you keep your leg out I guess

                            It's definitely not a pretty piece of engineering, the high-mount dual approach on the FTR looks much cleaner.

                              Nice enough but I have my reservations...
