Experience True American Muscle with the 2023 Indian FTR

The 2023 Indian FTR is a motorcycle that embodies the American motorcycle brand’s spirit and merges classic design with modern performance. The Indian FTR is the sportbike equivalent in Indian’s 2023 lineup and boasts a muscular and chiseled appearance, with its powerful V-twin engine taking center stage contained within the trellis frame. This aggressive design captures the essence of a true American motorcycle. The FTR’s liquid-cooled, 1203cc American V-twin engine produces 120 horsepower and 87 ft-lbs of torque.

Controlling all that power is made easy by the fully adjustable front and rear suspension. The bike’s riding position is race inspired but still a comfortable reach for most people, with lightweight 17-inch cast wheels and sticky Metzeler Sportec tires. Stopping power is just as important as acceleration and made easier by the inclusion of Brembo 4-piston monoblock calipers grip dual 320mm rotors.

Indian Motorcycles hasn’t forgotten about comfort, even on the sporty FTR, which comes standard with cruise control and rear cylinder deactivation to allow for longer, more enjoyable rides. The bike’s versatility is further emphasized by its range of genuine factory accessories, making it easy for riders to personalize their FTR to their exact needs and preferences.

The 2023 Indian FTR starts at $13,499 USD/$16,699 CAD
