John McInnis was just ahead of the curve when he told us Indian had trademarked the name eFTR and sent details of his Indian eFTR Concept. We didn't realise an official Indian eFTR would be coming so soon after the concept we posted last week. Neither did we think it would be a child's electric bike, either.
The eFTR is retailing in the US for $750. This is the spec according to Indianmotorcycle.com
Electric motor delivers top speed of 15 mph (24 km/h) in high speed mode
