The 2022 Indian FTR Gets Some Notable Updates That Make It More Approachable

Since its introduction in 2019, the street-tracker Indian FTR (formerly known as the FTR 1200) has garnered a reputation for being a fun and rowdy motorcycle to ride. This year, the American manufacturer made significant updates to the platform, making the Indian FTR and the higher-spec Indian FTR S notably more friendly and civilized.

For starters, Indian Motorcycle has recalibrated the engine and throttle output for a more refined, smoother, and more predictable ride. Additionally, the company has introduced a new cylinder deactivation system that manages engine heat when the bike is idle. Other updates include adding a more universal 17-inch wheel size with Metzeler Sportec tires instead of the larger rims with knobbies on the older bike. These changes have also resulted in a lower rake, trail, suspension travel, and seat height.

Powering the Indian FTR and the FTR S is a 1,203cc liquid-cooled V-twin that produces 120 hp and 87 lb-ft of torque. Despite the changes for a more refined ride, the FTR models still offer enough performance to plaster a smile across your face and pop wheelies as you please. The FTR S gets an Akrapovic exhaust, but it brings no changes to peak output figures.

The base Indian FTR now gets fully-adjustable suspension at both ends — a feature already available on the FTR S. While both variants share their engine and most of their hardware, the FTR S comes with a few additional rider aids. It offers three riding modes (Rain, Standard, Sport), a lean-angle sensitive ABS, stability control, traction control, wheelie control, and cruise control, all of which can be controlled via a 4.3-inch digital display.

On the other hand, the base FTR only offers standard ABS, cruise control, and a digi-analog cluster. Of the two, the FTR S is the more enticing proposition. It slots itself between the base variant and more expensive models, like the FTR R Carbon, in the 2022 Indian Motorcycle portfolio.

The 2022 Indian FTR starts at $12,999 USD / $15,999 CAD.
