The decision to take the FTR in production, is an answer to the huge buzz around the company's extremely successful FTR750 - a flat track racer that has proven to be one of the best bikes in the American Flat Track professional racing class, since its introduction in 2017. Alongside Indian presented the FTR 1200, a custom, one copy bike based on the flat tracker. Indian has now decided that this custom bike will be taken into production.
The result: the "flat tracker for the street", as Indian calls it. "We are excited about the character that this bike possesses and its ability to take American V-twin engines to new heights. We wanted to be sure that the FTR 1200 was not just a regurgitation of the FTR1200 Custom, but would get a unique 'street-look', albeit that the engine is of course inspired by the performances of Indian in the past."
