Ever since the FTR750 hit the track, racing fans and motorcycle enthusiasts have been clamoring for a street version that they could call their own. That anticipation intensified this past year with the debut of the FTR 1200 Custom, which has traveled to dozens of motorcycle shows, teasing riders across the globe. Well, it is now official… Indian is making the FTR 1200 and FTR 1200 S a part of the 2019 lineup!

The FTR 1200 combines race inspired design and nimble handling with an upright riding position to create a commanding riding experience. A new 1203cc V-Twin engine with approximately 120 horsepower makes sure every rider feels like a pro when they twist the throttle. The new platform is a key component in the company’s broader mission to expand its global appeal and reach new riders.

Let’s take a closer look at this fine piece of motoring muscle.

    I love all the features of the S model but want it in the Scout frame. The FTR’s rear fender is so high its difficult to get your leg over and back and the over all height had me on my tip-tows when stopped at a light. Also it is disappointingly heavy 489lbs vs 540lbs for the scout. I love my scout, it handles great and the seat is low to the ground, so Indian company: put the 120hp engine and all the trick electronics in the scout frame and I will buy it.
