EFTR Hooligan 1.2 e-bike from Indian Motorcycle and Super73 doesnt need license…

Indian Motorcycle Company has teamed up with an electric bike manufacturer to make this Indian-themed e-bike, as part of their electrification plans.

This is the second time that Indian Motorcycle has associated the FTR badge with an electric two-wheeler. The first time it did so, was in collaboration with Razor. Back then, the eFTR turned out to be a kids electric dirt bike. But the iconic and oldest motorcycling company has gone ahead and revived the badge again with Super73 this time with the eFTR Hooligan 1.2, which big enough for adults to ride.

Going by its initial images, the eFTR Hooligan 1.2 is largely based on the Super73s well-known S2 electric bike. However, Indian Motorcycles has done some considerable work on this bike. The Super73 bones are still there, however, modifications in the form of inverted front forks, mid-height, moto-style handlebars, and a unique LED headlight with FTR-inspired wind deflectors, and more aggressive tires.

The 960Wh battery is on the downtube, and it loses out on those rear fenders. Despite, visibly resembling the S2, this is without a doubt an Indian Motorcycle product. As for its performance specs, the Hooligan 1.2 is powered by an electric motor that can put out 2,000 watts of power. It rides on 20 fat bike wheels tires and can do a top speed of 20 mph (32 km/h) with full throttle. Theres also a pedal-assist system that allows you to do 28 mph (45 km/h) of top speed. This makes it legal in the United States to operate without a license.

Unfortunately, the Indian MotorcycleSuper73 eFTR Hooligan 1.2 is not available in India. Would you want this to launch in India as well? If so, how much do you think it will be priced? Our guess is around Rs. 7-8 lakhs.

The 2023 lineup also includes a new Challenger Elite

Indian Motorcycles is making a long list of changes to its lineup for the 2023 model year. The Minneapolis-based company added a new trim level called Sport to the FTR range, announced a second limited-edition Challenger Elite, and made several tweaks to the rest of its bikes.

Positioned near the middle of the FTR line, the Sport (shown above) replaces the S trim level. It’s powered by a water-cooled, 60-degree 1.2-liter V-twin engine tuned to develop 120 horsepower at 7,750 rpm and 87 pound-feet of torque at 6,000 rpm. Fully-adjustable suspension parts sourced from ZF allow riders to dial in their preferred configuration, while Brembo brakes ensure the Sport stops as well as it goes.

Indian updated the rest of the FTR range as well. Across the lineup, the model benefits from a retuned front braking system said to provide a firmer feel, a new clutch, a standard sport muffler, and a speedometer that’s been moved up to make it easier for the rider to see. Sport and R Carbon models also receive a cool-looking round touchscreen that displays the infotainment and navigation systems.

Limited to 150 units globally, the 2023 Challenger Elite (pictured below) illustrates a different side of Indian’s personality. If the name sounds familiar, it’s likely because the 2022 range also included a Challenger Elite. The newest variant features Sapphire Blue Smoke paint with Black Smoke and Titanium Metallic Smoke accents; the result is a custom look that comes straight from the factory. It’s a much bigger bike that weighs 804 pounds, so it’s powered by a 1.7-liter V-twin rated at 122 horsepower and, significantly, 128 pound-feet of torque.

Skim through the Challenger Elite’s list of standard equipment and you’ll ask yourself if you’re reading about a motorcycle or a car. It comes with a seven-inch display for the infotainment system, a 400-watt sound system, Bluetooth connectivity, and an electronically-adjustable rear suspension system, among other features. Heated grips, saddlebag-mounted speakers, and an adaptive LED headlight are included, too.

The rest of the changes made to the range are relatively small but significant. For example, the Thunder Stroke and PowerPlus engines get a new clutch designed to improve the overall feel, and some models receive a haptic feedback function for the heated and cooled seat’s buttons, meaning riders can easily turn on either function while wearing gloves. New paint colors and liveries are offered as well.

Indian’s 2023 models will reach dealers in the coming weeks. Pricing for the FTR Sport starts at 15,749 when riders select Black Metallic and 15,999 when they choose White Lightning and Indy Red. Positioned near the top of the range, the Challenger Elite starts at 35,999.

Indian Super73 Launch eFTR Hooligan 1.2 E-Bike

Indian taps the talent at SUPER73 to take the fight to Harley-Davidson and Serial 1.

Indian has taken a page from its cross-town rivals at Harley-Davidson and launched an e-bike of their own to put against the Serial 1 line. It’s called the eFTR Hooligan 1.2, and – if you’re a certain type of rider – it’s already the flat-track inspired electric moped of your dreams.

Built as a collaboration between Indian Motorcycle and SUPER73, the eFTR Hooligan hopes to appeal to adventurers, fun-seekers, established motorcyclists, and the e-bike-curious by combining accessible thrills with affordable, eco-conscious transportation. Even better: in most markets, there’s no motorcycle license required!

Indian E-bike Looks the Part

As a bike, the Indian eFTR Hooligan 1.2 takes a trusted electric powertrain and high-end suspension, braking, and frame components from SUPER73 and combines that with moto-inspired “flat track” styling from Indian Motorcycle. The look, we think, is successful in getting the message across without alienating new riders.

The official release for the Indian eFTR Hooligan 1.2 e-bike references several premium electric bike features, including a lightweight aluminum chassis, 20 in. wire wheels, hydraulic disc brakes, and an inverted front fork. The bike’s 960-watt removable battery delivers more than 40 miles of range at 20 mph in throttle-only operation (no pedaling) and more than 75 miles of range when using ECO pedal assist mode. Top speeds is about 28 mph in the bike’s most aggressive mode, and riders can select from several ride modes via the SUPER73 mobile app to suit their local e-bike laws.

Trevor FTR Stella Electric Flat-Tracker Motorcycle Preview

The Trevor FTR Stella electric flat-tracker motorcycle is what you get if you take a Ducati Scrambler and turn it into an electric motorcycle.

There isn’t much hype on this bike and that’s exactly why this electric flat-tracker will blow people’s hats off when you ride it on the dirt track. It’ll be the first time anyone’s seen such a sleek-looking flat-tracker blasting on dusty tracks.

So what is the Trevor FTR Stella all about? Who designed this bike? How is the Trevor FTR Stella electric flat-tracker motorcycle any different from all the other incoming scrambler-esque electric bikes on the market? Read on to find out.

Recap: What’s an Electric Flat-Tracker Motorcycle?

Flat-trackers are race motorcycles that stem from flat track racing which emerged in the 1920s. They were built for power, speed, and grip so they could fly around dirt ovals. The bikes adopted a specific style over the years: wide bars, a low profile sleek look, and duckbill rear fender.

Modern flat tracker race bikes still fly around tracks, but purpose built road bikes, such as Harley’s XR1200R or Indian’s FTR750, also play off of these classic styling cues. With the rise of electric motorcycles, we’re now seeing a new breed of electric flat-trackers which should eventually promise even more speed, but without the noise.

Who is Trevor Motorcycles?

Trevor Motorcycles is a startup electric dirt bike company founded in 2018 by a couple of vintage dirt bike enthusiasts — Philippe Stella and Jeroen-Vincent Nagels. Their idea was to make ‘clean’ electric dirt bikes in both style and emission.

To make the first of their electric bikes — the FTR Stella, Trevor partnered up with Saroléa — a well known Belgian vintage e-street bike manufacturer who makes classic-style electric motorcycles — as their manufacturer. This means we can expect a great deal of build quality coming out of Trevor Motorcycles.

Trevor FTR Stella Overview

Trevor is leaning more towards the rare, rather than road, aspect with their new bike. The Trevor FTR Stella will be a large size electric flat-tracker motorcycle meant for racing around flat tracks. It will feature an 11kW brushless DC electric motor that will provide 192ft-lbs of torque and propel the bike up to 55 miles per hour. Sadly no horsepower number was provided at Trevor’s official website.

Trevor FTR Stella Battery

A 2.7kWh li-Ion battery pack will power the FTR Stella and provide a range of 1.5 hours on the standard model. However you can upgrade this to 3 hours with Trevor’s 5.4kWh battery option upon purchase. Pretty decent range when compared to similar bikes like the upcoming Switch eScrambler or Harley Davidson’s Livewire. Trevor FTR Stella will also come with a 3kW charger that will provide a really short 1.3 hours of recharge time from empty to full. Now, assuming what Trevor Motorcycles claims is true, this recharge cycle is amazingly quick compared to even high end electric dirt bikes like Zero Motorcycles FX at 5.1 hours, let alone any upcoming electric flat-tracker.

Furthermore, the bike will come with some of the best components ever equipped on electric motorcycles.

Trevor FTR Suspension

These include an Öhlins suspension system. Öhlins is a well known brand of performance shocks and its shocks are usually found on high-end traditional motorcycles such as Kawasaki’s Z1000R and Ducati’s Streetfighter V4 S.

FTR Stella Tires Brakes

As if that isn’t enough, the FTR Stella flat-tracker will also feature a set of thick Dunlop off road tires and Behringer brakes. Dunlop is a pretty high end tire brand, and speaking from experience, have really grippy tires that stick well even on wet terrain. Behringer is an automotive brakes brand that’s well known for “one-finger brakes” or some of the most responsive and powerful brake sets on motorcycles. They make brakes for cars too.

Trevor FTR Flat-Tracker Frame

Lastly, the FTR Stella electric flat-tracker motorcycle features a molybdenum trellis frame. This type of frame ensures better flexibility and durability than aluminum alloy or steel. It also keeps the weight pretty low at just 174lbs which is a plus for off road racing bikes since we want as much flickability as possible to handle the off road race track’s mildly uneven terrain.

Where Would Trevor’s FTR Stella Electric Flat-Tracker Motorcycle Fit in the Market?

Trevor’s new FTR Stella Flat-Tracker obviously fits into the …flat-tracker segment of the market, but it’s not a road bike. It’s a race bike. That means that riders would have to customize the bike for road use.

Build quality in mind, I have a lot of faith reserved for the Trevor FTR Stella. Let’s hope it doesn’t suddenly disappear after making such huge claims like the Fly Free Smart Desert electric scrambler.

When Will Trevor’s FTR Stella Electric Flat-Tracker Motorcycle be released?

There is yet no statement from Trevor Motorcycles about the FTR Stella’s actual release date. However, you can preorder the bike at Trevor Motorcycles’ website for 14,495 USD and choose between two color variants — Ice White and Mighty Black.

Watch out though, there are only a limited 250 preorder slots available. Although it’s pretty exciting to be one of the first owners of a potentially wonderful bike, I myself would wait until the second batch — when people start talking about exactly how the bike performs.

Mud Bike’s Take on the Trevor FTR Stella Electric Flat-Tracker Motorcycle

We take back our statement on our Pursang e-Track Electric Scrambler Preview. There’s no hiding it — THIS is the most exciting electric off road motorcycle to enter production so far in 2020. I just can’t keep those features outta my head, though for 14,495 USD.

Despite the price, I’d say the Trevor FTR Stella electric flat-tracker motorcycle would be well worth the gaping hole in your moneybag if it ever gets released. Fast forward 10 years and there will be all sorts of replacement batteries and tech to make this glorious bike new again.

We can only hope Trevor Motorcycles isn’t blowing smoke out their ass and follow through with what they claim.
