Indian Motorcycle, America’s First Motorcycle Company, set a new standard for motorcycling with the unveiling of the FTR™ 1200 S and FTR™ 1200 S Race Replica. The FTR platform proudly breaks new ground and answers the call of enthusiasts in India anxiously awaiting its debut. Indian Motorcycle® also tied up with Orix India for leasing luxury bikes to bike enthusiasts.
The new FTR™ 1200 S and FTR™ 1200 S Race Replica takes designing and styling cues from the championship-winning FTR™ 750 race bike. The platform delivers an American motorcycle with a flat tracker style and performance of a powerfully new liquid-cooled 1203cc V-twin engine to back it up.
On the occasion of the new FTR™ 1200 S and FTR™ 1200 S Race Replica launch, Mr. Pankaj Dubey, Managing Director and Country Head, Polaris India Pvt.

We continually seek to broaden Indian Motorcycle’s reach to a wider range of riders, and FTR represents a significant step forward in that strategy.

Indian Motorcycle® with the launch of new FTR™ 1200 S and FTR™ 1200 S Race Replica brings you an idea of what the future is going to be like in the most sought after touring segment for bike enthusiast. The new platform underwent extensive development and testing to ensure it meets Indian Motorcycle’s high quality standards and
