Dominating American’s Flat Track championships since 2016, the new FTR™ 1200 S and FTR™ 1200 S Race Replica take design and styling cues from the championship-winning FTR750 race bike. The platform delivers an American motorcycle with true flat tracker style and the performance to back it up.
The FTR™ 1200 S and FTR™ 1200 S Race Replica combines race-inspired design and nimble handling with an upright riding position to create a commanding riding experience. A new 1203cc V-Twin engine with approximately 120 horsepower (90 kW) provides an impressively flat torque curve for flexibility and strong acceleration in any gear. The new platform is a key component in the company’s broader mission to expand its global appeal and reach new riders.
Built around a trellis frame with a sporty riding position, both models feature an inverted front suspension with radially mounted dual Brembo brakes for exceptional control and stopping power. The fuel tank is strategically located under the seat for a lower centre of gravity and more centralized weight distribution. Inspired by Indian Motorcycle’s storied history and success in flat track racing, the FTR 1200 S take design and styling cues from the championship-winning FTR750 race bike that has dominated American Flat Track since it was introduced in 2016.Similar to the FTR750 race bike, the air box is positioned directly above the engine to optimize airflow and maximize power. Both models feature a similar rear suspension and swingarm design as the FTR750 to not only provide a race bike look, but also ensure maximum grip with a compliant ride. Newly-developed Dunlop street tires with flat track-inspired tread, a chain final drive, and ProTaperflat tracker aluminium handlebars complete the race bike look.
Adding to the design is a host of premium features and ride-enhancing technologies. The FTR 1200 and FTR 1200 S models both feature full LED lighting, including a new headlight that provides an unmistakeable face for the platform, a fast-charge USB port to easily charge mobile devices, anti-lock brakes (ABS) and cruise control for a comfortable ride.
The FTR 1200 S features all that and more, including:
· Fully adjustable front and rear piggy-back suspension with preload, compression, and rebound adjustments so riders can perfectly match the bike to their personal riding style
