Indian Motorcycle first unveiled their flat track racing inspired motorcycle – FTR 1200 at the 2017 EICMA bike show. Earlier this year Steve Menneto, President of Indian Motorcycle confirmed about the production version of the motorcycle and today the Indian FTR 1200 and the FTR 1200 S were showcased at the annual Intermot motorcycle trade show held in Geneva. Both the motorcycles will reach the dealers by the second quarter of the next year and the FTR 1200 will be priced at $12,999 while the FTR 1200 S will be priced at $14,999.
“Our vision from the beginning was to be more than a traditional American V-twin brand. We continually seek to broaden Indian Motorcycle’s reach to a wider range of riders, and FTR 1200 represents a significant step forward in that strategy,” said Steve Menneto, President, Indian Motorcycle. “Indian Motorcycle was founded on performance and innovation, and we remain grounded by our founder’s mindset of constantly pushing forward. In light of that history, the FTR 1200 is a natural extension for the brand that we couldn’t be more excited about.”
The Indian FTR 1200 and 1200 S borrows inspiration from the FTR 750 and comes with ABS and cruise control. The FTR 1200 is built based on the new platform and sports a number of features including swingarm design, rear suspension, under seat fuel tank and the airbox. The bike is powered by a new, liquid cooled 1203 cc V-twin engine which makes 120 hp. The prominent features on the Indian FTR 1200 S are a 4.3 LCD touchscreen, lean angle stability control, traction control, wheelie mitigation control and fully adjustable front and rear piggyback suspension. The Indian FTR 1200 will be offered in Thunder Black scheme while the FTR 1200 S will be offered in Titanium Metallic over Thunder Black Pearl, Red over Steel Gray and a special scheme in style with FTR 750.
“This is an extremely exciting platform for us, and after investing such a significant amount of time, expertise and energy in the design process, it’s an incredible feeling to finally show the world these motorcycles,” said Rich Christoph, the Indian Motorcycle Senior Designer who was also played a key role in the design of the FTR750 and FTR1200 Custom. “Our primary focus was to ensure these motorcycles carried the same lines and form language as the FTR750 and 1200 Custom. We knew that’s what riders around the world fell in love with. I couldn’t be more proud to turn the FTR750 into a flat tracker for the street and help launch Indian into a new era.”
