2021 Indian Motorcycle FTR 1200 / 1200 S [Model Overview]

2021 Indian Motorcycle 1200 / 1200 S

The Flat-Track Inspired Indian FTR 1200 & 1200 S

The Indian FTR 1200 and 1200 S continue to inject some much-needed “sport” into the Indian model line-up. Ever since the FTR 1200 first rolled into dealerships in 2019, it has been one of the most ferocious American-made motorcycles on the market. As the smaller, race-only FTR 750 continues to dominate on track, the street-focused FTR 1200 continues to impress on the roads.

Inspired by Indian’s track-racing history, the FTR 1200 platform builds on the brand’s legacy but refocuses it for practical, sporty, and fast street riding. Aside from its sporty frame and ergonomics, the FTR 1200 models also feature a muscular 1,200 cc V-twin engine that produces 123 horsepower and 87 lb-ft of torque.

Both models boast Brembo brakes, high-performance Dunlop tires, and LED lights. The standard FR 1200 is only available in Thunder Black for 2021.

The 1200 S model features an impressive array of upmarket parts and components such as fully-adjustable suspension and stability control, and extra color options including Titanium Metallic over Thunder Black Pearl, Indian Motorcycle Red over Steel Gray, and a stunning Race Replica livery.

The 2021 Indian FTR 1200 starts at $11,499 USD / $14,499 CAD.
