Solve “Garage” Film Uses Brand’s Flat Track Racing Expertise To Promote Upcoming Model
This week, Solve released a social media film teasing Indian Motorcycle’s FTR 1200, which officially launches on October 1, 2018.
Since dominating American flat track racing the past two seasons, Indian Motorcycle fans have been begging the company to produce a street-legal version of the championship bike. Earlier this year, Indian Motorcycle announced plans to make the FTR 1200, which has been one of the most anticipated product entries in the brand’s storied history. The film, titled “Garage,” is designed to further fuel rider interest two weeks before the public launch.
Featuring 5-time American Flat Track champion Jared Mees, the film opens on him and his race bike going full bore around a dirt race track. As he rounds the final turn, a single-car garage unexpectedly appears in the middle of the track. Mees deftly eludes danger with a high-speed slide into the garage as the door slams immediately behind him, symbolizing that the championship-winning race bike will soon spawn a street legal version. The film was directed by LA-based Dean Bradshaw of Bradshaw Pictures.
