The rear swingarm design and tank silhouette are just a few of the elements borrowed from the FTR750 race bike. The FTR 1200 offers a sporty riding position and compact size combine for a commanding, precise ride. The Indian FTR 1200 also gets an inverted front suspension coupled with radially mounted dual 320 mm Brembo brakes provide solid stopping power. Inspired by the Championship-Winning FTR 750 flat-track race bike, the FTR series gets a new liquid- cooled 1,203cc V-twin engine which makes 120 bhp and 112.5 Nm of peak torque while being mated to a 6-speed transmission. The FTR 1200 S gets a bunch of premium features such as Bosch stability control with a six-axis inertial sensor, selectable riding modes, all controlled by a bright 4.3-inch colour touchscreen instrument console. Other features include a high output LED headlamp along with a fast charging USB port and cruise control! All these features are standard fitment on both motorcycles. Along with these, the Indian FTR 1200 gets high performance street tyres from Dunlop which have flat-track inspired tread providing optimum grip on road.
The engine has been inspired by the Scout but gets 80 per cent new components and runs a higher compression ratio as well. Plus, this is the first ever production motorcycle from Indian which not an out and out cruiser and is lighter too compared to the heavyweights from Indian motorcycle. The company will bring the FTR 1200 range to India as a CBU, like all other Indian models.
