The Indian eFTR Hooligan is not fully electric and has pedals for versatility. The e-bike uses a removable 960 kWh battery and claims a range of 120 km on pedal-assist mode.
However, if you drive this e-bike on throttle mode only, then the Indian eFTR Hooligan can achieve a riding range of up to 64 kms. The company has given the option of three riding modes in this e-bike, which help in preserving some range whenever required.
The Indian eFTR Hooligan limits the speed to 32 kmph with Pedal Assist in the Class 1 mode offered in it. On the other hand, it gets throttle enabled in its Class 2 ride mode, but its speed is limited to 32 kmph.
Talking about the Class 3 mode available in it, the speed of the e-bike goes up to 45 kmph, which is its maximum speed. The Indian eFTR is based on the Hooligan 1.2 Super 73 S2, though some additional elements have been used to set it apart.
The e-bike gets inverted front forks, an FTR-like headlamp and a flyscreen. Apart from this, it also takes inspiration from the Roland Sands Design Edition and sports an extended bench seat and mid-mounted battery pack to reduce its CG.
Let us tell you that Indian Motorcycle has removed the front and rear fenders and used thick semi-knobby tyres, which is quite unique. Super motorcycle maker Indian Motorcycle is not the only major motorcycle manufacturer to enter the e-bike race recently.
Harley Davidson owns a Serial 1 bike, while the Yamaha YDX Torc-eMTB and the latest Ducati Futa road e-bike are also in the market. It is safe to say, we can expect many more e-bikes to be introduced in the coming year.
