The Scout FTR1200 Custom takes inspiration from the Scout FTR750's purpose-built 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, the one-off custom houses the Scout’s street-legal 1133cc V-Twin engine.

As well as honoring 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.

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.
