Get Ready to Buy

The Indian Motorcycle FTR 1200 is one bike that gets a lot of people excited for the future of the company. That’s why it’s pretty big news that you’ll be able to go into a dealer to see one and purchase one in May. With May literally right around the corner, I hope your bank account is ready to drop some money on one of these bikes. According to Cycle News, all of the factory accessories will be at dealers at the same time, too.

In case you’ve been living under a rock for a while, the FTR 1200 and FTR 1200 S are two motorcycles heavily inspired by Indian’s history of flat track racing. The platform for the motorcycle is really different than anything else from Indian. It should usher in a new era for the motorcycle company.

The bike comes with a 1203cc V-Twin engine making approximately 120 horsepower and 85 lb-ft of torque. That’s a strong engine on a bike, and the FTR 1200 should be a seriously cool machine. The company also offers a variety of accessories to make the FTR your own, including an Akrapovič Exhaust, which is actually standard on the FTR 1200 S with Race Replica paint.

The FTR 1200 will cost $13,499. It comes in Thunder Black. The FTR 1200 S has a $15,499 price tag, and it will come Red over Steel Gray and Titanium Metallic over Thunder Black Pearl Race Replica.

    I think Indian made a mistake by doing their big press push last fall, telling all the bike would be available in March & now it’s going to be May. I think they should do their press closer to their bike availability or have put 1 bike in every dealership last fall for display. I thought they had learned this lesson with the Victory Magnum. I love the Ftr1200! We just are waiting too long. I’m tired of seeing the same ads on Instragram…for 6 months
