Thanks to a collaboration with Indian, the legendary motorcycle maker, the line between e-bike and e-motorcycle continues to blur. Nevertheless, Indian and adventure brand SUPER73 just unveiled a limited-edition (and admittedly cool) electric bicycle. The red and black eFTR Hooligan 1.2 e-bike offers urban and recreational cyclists a cafe racer-inspired e-bike that’s powerful and teeming in Indian Motorcycle’s signature aesthetics.

Here’s what you need to know.

Indian Motorcycle incorporates SUPER73-S2 platform in the electric bike, which it touts as a high-performing and versatile design.

Moto-style handlebars, a golden chain, a “unique” LED headlight, FTR-like wind deflector, and chunky, aggressive tires round out the bike’s looks.

An aluminum chassis, 20-inch wheels, disc brakes, retractable kickstand, and an inverted fork structure the eFTR.

As for juice, the bike uses a 960 watt-hour removable battery — a tiny powerhouse by electric bike standards. Fully charged, the eFTR Hooligan’s battery can deliver up to 75 miles of range on the ECO setting, or up to 40 miles of range on full throttle.

Via the SUPER73 mobile app, riders can choose from an interesting spread of ride modes: Class 1 pedal assist (20 mph max), Class 2 throttle operation and pedal assist (20 mph max), Class 3 pedal assist (28 mph max), and Off-Road, which delivers up to 2000 watts of oomph and speeds over 28 mph.

In designing the bike, Indian and SUPER73 targeted optimal cycling performance in urban and rec settings. We haven’t taken one for a spin yet, but it sounds like a mission accomplished.

Pricing, Availability

The limited run of eFTR Hooligan 1.2 e-bikes goes for $4,000 MSRP. Check out indianmotorcycle.com to learn more and put an order in.

“teeming in Indian Motorcycle’s signature aesthetics.”

Has the author ever seen an Indian motorcycle? The only Indian aesthetic I see on this electric BMX is the logo on the battery.

The super 73 bikes are pretty junk. I’ve seen a few up close and it’s really low quality, generic e bike stuff, and the frames are not impressive. 4000 is a very steep price for this. Ruff Cycles makes a BMX styled e bike with Bosch motors and batteries, and well as a chopper that looks more “Indian inspired” than this.

For the price of 3 of those, you can get an actual FTR. Good luck.
