2019 Indian FTR 1200

Oct 2, 2018

Category: Rides

About a year ago, Indian announced they were building a one-off flat tracker motorcycle due to the overwhelming enthusiasm they received from the concept street-legal flat tracker they built as a tribute to their dominance in American Flat Track Racing. Now, they’ve unveiled the production model we’ve all been waiting for, with one caveat.

Unfortunately, for us, this FTR 1200 looks to have fallen a bit flat — no pun intended — compared to what was promised just a year ago. Here, we do get a subtle sense of the intended homage to the championship-winning FTR 750 race bike, but Indian appears to have leaned more toward a Ducati stance than the concept we fell in love with. That’s not to say its performance isn’t anything to shy away from, for this street-built flat tracker hosts a powerful liquid-cooled 1203cc V-Twin complete with 120 horses and 85 ft-lbs of torque at the helm. Additionally, its trellis frame, rear swingarm design, and airbox located directly above the engine do allude to the famed FTR 750 while full LED lighting, three ride modes, lean-angle traction and stability control alongside a digital dash take it into the 21st century. Not at all a subpar ride by any means, it’s just obvious some key elements were sacrificed for the sake of mass appeal. Available Spring 2019.
