Indian have launched a new test ride initiative that will see anyone* who registers to test ride a 2023 FTR be entered into a lottery to win a custom FTR. The prize bike is designed in conjunction with French rally driving demigod, and Indian Motorcycle ambassador, Sebastien Loeb. Two will be built: one for the winner, the other for Loeb himself.
The FTR Loeb will be built by Parisian FTR customising specialists, Tank Machine, who we featured in Sideburn 49.
Talking about Loeb (above), Indian say, 'From World Rally to World Touring Cars, Pikes Peak to the Dakar Rally, Rallycross to Xtreme E and more, Sébastien Loeb’s exceptional career has seen him display his legendary skills across a multitude of disciplines while setting records along the way. What is less known is that Sébastien Loeb discovered his passion for motorsports in regional moped events before trying his hand at motorcycle racing on circuits and in enduro.'
The test ride period runs between February 8th and May 15th, riders in participating countries can qualify for this once in a lifetime chance by registering online, selecting an Indian Motorcycle dealer, and visiting that dealer to take a test ride on any model from the Indian FTR lineup.
The lucky winner will be randomly selected at the end of May ready to be whisked away on a VIP trip to Wheels & Waves in June meet the Tank Machine team and be presented with their FTR Loeb.
* To be in with a chance, you must register via the country you live in, from the list below. If your country isn't included, you're out of luck, unfortunately.
