Indian Motorcycle entered the World Wheelie Championships last weekend, with Cecil ‘Bubba’ Myers also setting two UK production bike speed records on the FTR1200’s debut.

A tentative first outing at the Straightliners-run event that sees an eclectic mix of machines enter, including turbo charged machines that reach over 210mph on the back wheel, Bubba’s FTR 1200S was simply a production machine with the rear number plate hanger removed.

With a limited number of runs, due to other commitments for Bubba on his regular turbo-charged machine, the 2018 world champion set a fastest 1 Mile Wheelie at 131.137mph on the FTR1200S, before going on to set two UK speed records in the process, recording a speed of 145.543mph to set the ‘Flying Start ¼ mile’ record and 145.613mph to secure the ‘Standing Start Mile’ record too – both in the production V-Twin up to 1350cc category.
