Indian has a Rally version of the FTR1200
« on: May 02, 2019, 12:33:57 am »
I'm sitting at LAX waiting to fly home after the launch of the Indian FTR1200 "flat tracker for the street". They have various versions with different accessories, but the most interesting for this forum is the Rally with white colouring, raised bars, raised exhausts, spoked wheels, a braced mudguard and a small screen. We didn't get a chance to ride this version but we did have a go on the more roady versions. My tale will be up on www.thebikeshow.co.za on Monday afternoon.

Until then, have a look.

Update:

Here's the story Ė https://thebikeshow.co.za/road-test-indian-ftr1200-flat-tracker-for-the-street-hell-yeah/

Probably one of the only bikes ever made where you would want to keep the exhaust standard.. looks the business to me.

Not sure where the "Rally" comes in but looks good.
Probably a nice Rally to the local coffee shop perhaps.
I like what they did with the frame.

I like very much  :drif:

Probably aimed at the same customer as the BMW RNineT?

Reminds me of the "special" Harley I locked eyes on at Tygervalley

Yeah I'd agree that it's aimed at the RnineT market.
Those exhaust pipes looks like it was stolen of a Monster.

Same class as the BMW R9T ? It looks heavy.

The one in the background with the read frame catches my eye as a lekker roady.
The spoked version may appeal to some but definitely not dirt riding with that bike and the low exposed radiator (oil cooler?)

I smaak the rally/white version, but it will not do offroad.

Really like the look of that. If something that looks like that existed with a sub 700cc engine I would gladly commute on it every day.
