Indian Motorcycle has announced its first electric bike for the young aspiring riders called the eFTR Jr. It is a mini-replica of the company’s American Flat Track championship-winning FTR750. The all-new electric mini-bike allows motorcycle lovers to hand down their passion for two wheels to the kids.
The Indian eFTR Jr is unique in its dynamic styling, allowing young riders to feel like a member of the iconic Indian Motorcycle Wrecking Crew that dominated the flat track racing in the 1950s and have won every championship since their return to the sport in 2017.
Featuring two ride modes, low and high, a seat height of 23.5 inches (597 mm), and a maximum weight of 175 pounds (80 kg), the eFTR Jr can accommodate riders that are 8-year-old and older when in low mode, and 13-year-old and over in high mode. The bike’s telescopic front forks and mono-shock rear suspension provide a smooth, comfortable ride, while the rugged steel frame provides a durable structure for the beginning riders. The eFTR Jr has dual-disc brakes that offer premium stopping power for increased control and rider confidence.
Speaking about the new Indian eFTR Jr, Ross Clifford, Vice President of Parts, Garments, and Accessories at Indian Motorcycle said, “Whether it was a father, mother, uncle or family friend, most motorcyclists have fond memories of the person that introduced them to riding, and that’s the spirit behind the eFTR Jr. We wanted our first youth offering to be electric to provide a safe, simplistic and clean form of motorcycling for children, all wrapped up in the signature look of the FTR750. The eFTR Jr can kickstart a lifetime of riding memories for the whole family.”
The eFTR Jr has a 36-volt rechargeable battery which will run for 140 minutes in low mode at 10 mph (16 kph) and 65 minutes in high mode at 15 mph (24 kph).
Along with the eFTR Jr, Indian Motorcycle has also introduced a brand-new line of protective youth apparel, including an eFTR Jr helmet, body armour, gloves, and an Indian Motorcycle Racing replica jersey. The eFTR Jr youth apparel collection features the company’s racing branding and has been designed for enhanced rider safety and protection.
The Indian eFTR Jr is available online at the brand’s official website. Interested buyers can also purchase the motorcycle from the company’s dealerships exclusively in the USA and Canada. The Indian eFTR Jr has been priced at USD 750 or AED 2,754.
