The FTR badge has now been associated with a two-wheeled electric vehicle for the second time by Indian Motorcycle. The first time was in partnership with Razor. At the time, the eFTR was an electric off-road bike for kids. However, the iconic and oldest motorcycle company has revived the Super73 badge, this time with the eFTR Hooligan 1.2, which is large enough to be ridden by adults. Following its initial imagery, the eFTR Hooligan 1.2 is largely based on the Super73’s popular S2 e-bike. Indian Motorcycles has put in a lot of effort into this bike.

Indian has followed in the footsteps of its crosstown rivals, Harley-Davidson, by releasing its own e-bike to compete with the Serial 1 lineup. It’s known as the eFTR Hooligan 1.2.
The Hooligan eFTR, developed in collaboration between Indian Motorcycle and SUPER73, aims to appeal to adventurers, fun-seekers, experienced riders, and e-bike enthusiasts by combining affordable thrills with affordable and environmentally friendly transportation.
Even better, in most markets, a motorcycle license is not required. The Super73’s bones are still there, but there have been modifications such as inverted front forks, mid-rise moto-style handlebars, and a unique LED headlight with FTR-inspired wind deflectors and more aggressive Tyres.
The Indian eFTR Hooligan 1.2 combines the SUPER73’s dependable electric powertrain and premium suspension, brake, and frame components with Indian Motorcycle-inspired “flat track” styling.

eFTR Hooligan 1.2 Electric Bike for Kids
These days, electric-assist bikes are literally everywhere, but few look as good as this one. This is the 1.2 version of the Indian eFTR Hooligan. It is the result of a collaboration between American motorcycle manufacturer Indian Motorcycle and electric bike manufacturer Super73. The Indian believes it can be used for “recreational sporting use as well as urban transportation.”
The placement of the battery allowed the padded seat to run the length of the frame. Indian outfitted the e-bike with motorcycle-style handlebars with an LCD display, and the single-speed drivetrain has a gold-colored chain.
The Special Edition weighs 73 pounds (33 kilograms), is wirelessly connected to a mobile app, and has front and rear LED lighting, with the headlight featuring an FTR-inspired wind deflector.
It rides on 20-inch wheels with 4.5-inch front and 5-inch rear Grizzly Tyres, and the fenders have been removed for an off-road look. a winding road. The inverted front suspension was added by Indians, and Tektro hydraulic disc brakes provide stopping power. All of this makes it a very appealing electric bike for kids.
With a history in racing that dates back more than a century, Indian Motorcycle is one of a select group of brands that can truly be called ‘American Originals,’ and the team has done an incredible job redesigning the Super73S2 to capture the spirit of the iconic Indian Motorcycle brand,” said Michael Cannavo of Super73.
