When the Indian FTR750 (Flat Track Racer) rolled onto the stage at the Sturgis Rally during its world premiere, little did the audience know that they will be run.
In what is reported to be a massive stunt fail, the FTR750 which was ridden by American motorcycle racer and designer Roland Sands launched off the stage, into the audience, injuring four.
The video shows that the motorcycle emerges from back of the stage and before you get a proper first glimpse, it crash lands into the crowd. Reports say that 4 people were injured in the incident. They were given first aid at the side and were taken to a hospital. It’s to be noted that the flat track racer is a track-only prototype and does not have front brakes.

The FTR750 is an Indian Scout-based flat track racer which debuts Indian’s new 750 cc V-Twin engine. The American cruiser brand has not revealed any production plans for the new engine but given the popularity of the Harley Davidson Street 750, an Indian Scout 750 would make a strong case. The prototype which will enter competition employs extensive carbon fibre bits.
