Indian’s Premium Sports Machine: The 2022 Indian FTR R Carbon
Badged as a 2022 model, but available in 2021, the all-new Indian FTR R Carbon is a new model for the 2021 Indian line-up that serves as a replacement for the outgoing FTR1200R and FTR Carbon models. It’s a fusion of the best features of the two models, with plenty of impressive upgrades and top-quality components. As far as American-made motorcycles go, this is one of the most impressive on the market.
Like all Indian motorcycles, the new FTR R Carbon is built around a powerful V-twin engine. This one is a 1,203 cc V-twin unit that’s a slight upgrade over the previous models, with a new tune, that produces 120 horsepower and 87 lb-ft of torque but in a more street-friendly package. The engine alone is a thing of beauty.
Other notable features include fully-adjustable Öhlins suspension, Brembo brakes, 17-inch rims, a blacked-out Akrapovič exhaust, selectable ride modes, lean-angle stability control, ABS, wheelie control, and rear cylinder deactivation technology. A fancy 4.3-inch customizable Ride Command system keeps everything under control too. And then there’s the carbon fiber bodywork, which keeps weight down, and looks great!
The Indian FTR R Carbon is available exclusively in Indian’s Carbon Fiber finish.
The 2022 Indian FTR R Carbon starts from $16,999 USD / $19,999 CAD.
