What is it?
The Indian FTR1200 is finally unveiled at the Intermot 2018 and is the also the first non-cruiser motorcycle in the Indian line-up. Thank the brand for bringing the FTR1200 with all the eye catching elements as seen on the concept.
Powered by a 1203cc v-twin which makes 120hp of peak power and 115Nm of torque, the engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox with slip assist clutch. The engine is said to be lighter than the Scout’s engine and altogether dry weight is at 222kg for this non-cruiser motorcycle. We can’t expect light weight roadsters from a cruiser motorcycle manufacturing company though which builds bikes as strong as a tank.
