Listed here is the entire story – 

For our latest project we jumped on an Indian FTR for a private customer in Switzerland.

We believed it would be cool to have a flat observe concept on the bike and the brand Indian Motorcycles has a potent DNA in flat monitor racing.

Together with the customer we determined that it would be terrific to thoroughly expose the stunning trellis body of the FTR which in initial is partly included by the plastic “tank covers” which are housing the airbox.

Ulfert: “We instantly grew to become informed why Indian designers resolved to partially cover the body as almost everything is asymmetrical on that tubular body, specially with the mono rear suspension. But we made the decision to take on the problem and expose the beautiful trellis frame in whole. It gave us a good deal of headache, but it was thoroughly value it and the outcome with the exposed body painted in pearl white is beautiful.”

The initial design and style sketches and renderings had been initially translated into a clay design to find the type in 3D in preparation of the steel operate. The crew of artisans then worked their magic and formed and tinkered the true areas out of metal. The speedometer monitor obtained built-in into the tank go over and created it inlay and flush, so handlebar style and design is additional pure and racing, without the devices.

To substitute the authentic plastic tank less than the seat, the bike obtained streamlined and outfitted with an aluminium flat monitor racing tank and tail area from Roland Sands.

Stefan: “Our intention was to combine all the complex needs and adjustments with no impacting the principle. That was a actual obstacle because of remarkable limited house issues for all the elements and we experienced to substitute many areas in other areas on the bike and reroute the cables and electronics.

It was critical to us that we resolve and adapt the personal components in such a way that there is a coherent in general photo to get a incredibly sleek and technically fantastic racer.”

More cool details like the Jetprime’s all-black racing handle buttons and footpegs from Gilles give reference to the machine’s successful racing DNA.

The modest tail light-weight as properly as the two tiny higher tech headlights are from Highsider Germany which glow brightly the way in the darkish.

The golden and black spoke wheels are from Kineo and are equipped with Michelin Anakee Wild knobby tires to give that good snotty look.

The exhaust process is a special titanium version manufactured by Zard and gives the awesome blue tint. The slip-on is a SC-Project exhaust and gives a round observe to the two cylinder engine.

The saddle is a specific custom upholstery by Zwahlen NIZ.

The paint is a exceptional mixture of “scrubbed” and superior gloss glow in deep midnight blue with golden information. The trellis body is painted pearl white to make it stand out and exhibit its special magnificence and offers incredible reflections in the daylight.
