Indian FTR1200 flat-track on sale in 2019

Indian has confirmed that a flat-track FTR1200 will go on sale next year.

The announcement comes in response to months of speculation and demand for a street version of the company’s FTR750 – a purpose-built racer that has dominated the American Flat-Track professional racing series since its introduction in 2017.

That speculation was intensified by the company’s development of the FTR1200 Custom, a one-off build that toured global motorcycle shows this past year. The new FTR1200 will take inspiration, design and performance cues from these two predecessors, but will maintain a look and style all its own.

The FTR1200’s full specification is yet to be announced, but it will embody a flat tracker style, housed in a trellis frame and powered by a new V-twin engine.

“We wanted to make sure that the FTR 1200 wasn’t merely a regurgitation of the FTR1200 Custom, but something uniquely ‘street,’ albeit flat track inspired,” said Senior Designer Rich Christoph.

“We’re thrilled about the character this bike possesses, and its ability to take American V-twin motorcycles into new territory.”
