Transportation by electric moped, scooter, or motorcycle has become a very economical solution in the medium and long term. In this sense, Indian Motorcycle, America’s First Motorcycle Company, has decided to show the public a very interesting model.
The company has announced its first electric youth offering – the eFTR Jr. This all-new electric bike is a mini-replica of Indian Motorcycle’s American Flat Track championship-winning FTR750 that allows motorcycle lovers to hand down their passion for two wheels to aspiring young riders.
Featuring two ride modes – low and high, a seat height of 23.5 inches, and a maximum weight of 175 pounds (79 kg), the all-new electric mini-bike can accommodate riders eight years and older when in low mode, and 13 and over in high mode. This electric bike delivers a top speed of 15 mph (24 km/h) in high-speed mode. Its rechargeable battery provides up to 140 minutes of continuous use in low-speed mode at 10-mph and 65 minutes in high mode at 15 mph.
The eFTR Jr has a rugged steel frame, folding metal footpegs, chain drive, an adjustable riser-style handlebar, twist throttle, and hand-operated dual-disc brake. It also has FTR graphics for an authentic look. The bike’s telescopic front forks and mono-shock rear suspension provide a smooth, comfortable ride, while the bike’s rugged steel frame provides a durable structure for beginning riders. The eFTR Jr’s dual-disc brakes offer premium stopping power for increased control and rider confidence.
The recommended rider age of 8 years or older for Indian Youth eFTR are only estimates and can be affected by the rider’s size, weight, or skills. Certainly, any rider unable to fit comfortably on the Indian Youth eFTR should not attempt to ride it, but a parent’s decision to allow his or her child to ride these products should be based on the child’s maturity, skill, and ability to follow the rules.
The eFTR Jr is available online at the company’s website and Indian Motorcycle dealerships exclusively throughout the U.S. and Canada for $749.99 (USD) and $999.99 (CAD). In addition, Indian motorcycle is also offering a brand-new line of protective youth apparel, including an eFTR Jr helmet, body armor, gloves, and an Indian Motorcycle Racing replica jersey.
