There’s one thing Indian has been excelling at for the past three years and that’s flat-track racing. The factory team, the Wrecking Crew, has been dominating the dirt oval with Jared Mees in the lead. The manufacturer scored a home run with the introduction of its new FTR 750 dirt warrior, so much so that it too everything it learned on the flat track and applied it to a street-friendly bike. Thus the FTR 1200 was born. Now, we’re about to find out how whether the 1200 has the same racing chops as it competition-specific counterpart with the Indian FTR 1200 Hooligans.

The two specially-prepared FTR 1200 are the work of Wisconsin-based shop S&S Cycle, incidentally Indian’s official part supplier on the dirt track. The two FTRs have been significantly modified to go from street to dirt tracker. The exhaust pipes have been re-routed to high-set tips, the headlamp has been removed and replaced by a number plate, sitting on top of the new S&S billet triple-clamps meant to increase and improve steering.
