The 2023 Indian FTR R Carbon: Realize Your Carbon Fiber Dreams

The 2023 Indian FTR R Carbon is a stunning motorcycle that combines a muscular, chiseled appearance with a functional, sophisticated American design. At the core of the FTR R Carbon is a high-revving, liquid-cooled American V-twin engine that produces a unique character. With 120 horsepower and 87 ft-lbs of torque, the bike offers a robust torque curve that extends flatly until the 9,000 rpm redline.

Indian Motorcycles has gone all out as far as technology on this model. The Carbon boasts a 4-inch touchscreen powered by RIDE COMMAND. This touchscreen provides navigation with Bluetooth® tethering and can be customized to your preferences with a simple touch. The FTR R Carbon also includes 3 ride modes, Lean Angle Sensitive Stability Control, ABS, traction control, cornering pre-control, and wheelie mitigation.

Unique in Indian’s 2023 lineup is the suspension setup across multiple models. A fully adjustable Öhlins® suspension on both the front and rear provides a customizable riding experience, allowing riders to fine-tune their ride for optimal performance on city streets or back roads. The bike features lightweight 17-inch cast wheels with Metzeler Sportec® rubber for excellent grip and maneuverability. The FTR R Carbon boasts incredible stopping power, thanks to its fully adjustable 43mm upside-down front fork, exposed rear shock, and Brembo 4-piston mono block calipers that grip dual 320mm rotors. These components are specifically tuned for outstanding control and braking power.

Unmatched fit and finish are evident in the premium stitched seat and carbon fiber components throughout the motorcycle, ensuring both comfort and an emotional connection every time you ride. The FTR R Carbon can be personalized with Genuine Factory Accessories, making it a versatile and indispensable tool for meeting a rider’s two-wheeled needs.
