2019 Indian Motorcycle FTR 1200 makes its debut
Indian’s highly anticipated production model inspired by the dominant FTR750 flat track race bike and FTR1200 Custom concept finally makes its official debut, accompanied by a sporty S model.
There's a new steel trellis frame and aluminum subframe with an asymmetrical single-side rear shock mount. The front suspension is made up of 43-millimeter upside down cartridge forks with 5.9 inches of travel, and the side-mounted rear suspension can move an equal amount.
The engine is a liquid-cooled 1203cc V-twin that produces 120 horsepower and 85 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
The FTR 1200 gets a normal analog gauge cluster, but the S model gets a customizable 4.3-inch Ride Command touchscreen with Bluetooth. Other perks of the S model include lean-angle sensitive stability control, traction control, and wheelie mitigation control. You also get three ride modes with the FTR 1200 S: Sport, Standard, and Rain.
The 2019 FTR 1200 and FTR 1200 S are expected to be in dealerships by the spring of 2019.
