Indian Motorcycle India has launched the Indian FTR 1200 S and the FTR 1200 S Race Replica in India. The Indian FTR 1200 S has been launched at a price of Rs. 15.99 lakh and the FTR 1200 S Race Replica priced at 17.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The prices of both the motorcycles had been announced back in December 2018 but bikes officially launched today. The booking has been started and the interested customers can go to Indian dealerships to book the motorcycles by paying a token amount of Rs. 2 lakh.
Inspired by Indian’s championship-winning FTR 750 flat-track race bike, the FTR series comes with a new liquid-cooled 1,203cc V-twin engine which generates a max power of 120 bhp and a peak torque of 112.5 Nm and the motor is paired to a 6-speed gearbox. The FTR 1200 S comes with a bunch of premium features including Bosch stability control with a six-axis inertial sensor along with lean-sensitive traction control and ABS, three riding modes (Sport, Standard, and Rain) and a 4.3-inch full-colour touchscreen instrument console.
The engine is inspired by the Scout and gets up to 80 percent new components and runs a higher compression ratio. This is the first-ever production motorcycle from Indian which is not an out cruiser and is substantially lighter in comparison to the heavyweight Indian motorcycles. The company will bring the FTR 1200 range to India as a CBU, like all other Indian models. Reports suggest that the FTR 1200 is the first motorcycle coming with a brand new platform that will spawn other new models as well. We are expecting a streetfighter style model based on the FTR 1200, for next year’s model line-up, as well as an adventure touring model for the 2021 model year.
