Inspired by Indian’s AFT-dominating FTR750 factory racer, the release of the FTR1200 took things in a decidedly novel direction for the American manufacturer, with a more performance-oriented V-Twin offering that abandons the brand’s traditional cruiser configuration. And despite Indian already offering a top-shelf S-spec FTR1200 and several accessory kits, America’s oldest motorcycle marque has now unveiled a new addition to the lineup with the 2020 FTR Carbon.
The FTR Carbon is a premium version of the model that comes standard with a number of optional accessories offered on the base and S models, includes a carbon fiber seat cowl, tank cover, and front fender from the Sport Collection, plus a new carbon headlight cover, a set of ProTaper bars, and a special FTR Carbon-branded center console plaque. The Carbon-spec’s 1,203cc V-Twin also spits spent fumes from a low-mount stainless-steel Akrapovic exhaust terminating in a pair of matte black titanium cans. Further distinguishing the Carbon version from the other FTR models is a Wrecking Crew replica paint scheme with a deep red and white livery now laid over bare carbon fiber, plus the red trellis frame and swing-arm. The 2020 Indian FTR Carbon is available now in certain markets, with pricing set at $18,360.
