MOTOISM Gives the Indian FTR1200 Moto a Baja-Inspired Transformation

When you operate out of a city that’s home to the headquarters of both BMW and Volkswagen, your work tends to be held to a higher standard, as more than a century of German engineering has created a status quo in which the bar has been set incredibly high. As proof, just look at Munich-based customs shop MOTOISM which, now in its sixth year of operation, has managed to carve out a well-deserved reputation for one-off builds characterized by their ultra-clean and uncluttered designs and top-notch craftsmanship and execution. And for its latest project, MOTOISM’s co-founder and head honcho, Ben Ott has partnered with Sebastian Neumann of Indian Motorcycle München and auto customization shop Geigercars to deliver a pair of bespoke Indian FTR1200s.

Of the two bikes, the one built for Sebastian was given a Baja-style theme, and as such was bestowed with spoked wheels shod in knobby Continental TKC80 tires, custom radiator covers, an aftermarket LED headlight set behind a custom grille, and a custom tail section with a bespoke three-in-one light that functions as the indicators, brake, and taillights. MOTOISM also turned to additive manufacturing to produce a decent portion of the build’s custom parts, plus the shop utilized numerous items from its own in-house catalog of custom parts including its front turn signals and Wunderkind side license plate holder. Rounding out the project is a custom desert tan livery adorning the front fender, instrumentation bezel, headlight shell, radiator guards, and tank covers.

Now complete, the MOTOISM x Indian Motorcycle München FTR1200s are currently on exhibition at the custom moto shop’s headquarters in Munich, where both builds are on display to the public.
