2022 Indian FTR

This is the FTR we always wanted the FTR to be

Indian Motorcycle revamped and rebranded its FTR 1200 model as the FTR ahead of 2022 to maintain the momentum of the civilian-version of its proven Flat-Track platform.

The blackout treatment begins in earnest right out of the gate and touches just about everywhere you can imagine with only the exhaust header pipes escaping the darkness.

Beefy inverted fork stanchions impart a sense of strength to the front end with a classic single round headlight housing and standoff-style turn signals to handle the forward lighting.

Both the headlight and blinkers come in LED tech, plus the headlight rocks a DRL ring.

The blackout ProTaper handlebar runs an inch and a half shorter this year

to deliver crisp handling and improve control, especially at speed.

An LED taillight rides in the tip of the tail well out of harm's way, but the rest of the gear in the rear is mounted on a single-side hugger that carries the rear blinkers and license plate.

When viewed from the right side, the sharply upswept silencers add volumes to the FTR's flat-track chops.

The FTR is eager in the corners, quick to flick, and responsive to reversals to deliver the full handling package.

The fully-adjustable suspension comes off the top shelf with 43 mm inverted Sachs cartridge forks up front ahead of a ZF Sachs piggyback coil-over shock.

The liquid-cooled V-twin on the FTR brings the goods with a whopping 120 horsepower and 87 pounds o' grunt.

A Rear-Cylinder Deactivation feature cuts down on the heat that washes up over the pilot in stop-and-go conditions, as does the improved heat-management system to increase rider comfort.

Cruise control serves as the only additional electronic engine control feature

for a fairly raw and direct power delivery.

MSRP on the new FTR is $13k and it only comes in black.
