Indian Motorcycle has officially revealed a carbon clad version of the popular FTR 1200, with the new model entering the market as an even more premium option over the already well-specced FTR 1200 S.
“For the discerning rider, the FTR Carbon offers a collectable motorcycle with the highest level of finish and raises the bar for American motorcycles once again,” says Indian Motorcycle President Mike Dougherty.
“Delivering the finest riding experience and with the carbon accents enhancing the unique FTR styling, the FTR Carbon is sure to draw admiring looks anywhere you ride.”
As you’d expect from a premium motorcycle, Indian have fully decked out the FTR Carbon with all the goodies you could ask for. In addition to the carbon fibre bodywork and stylish Akropovic exhaust, the FTR 1200 Carbon is also equipped with cruise control, dual disc Brembo ABS brakes, traction control, full LED lighting for better visibility, and a 4.3 inch LED touchscreen dashboard featuring a USB fast-charge port and Bluetooth compatibility for charging and controlling mobile devices.
Indian has also ensured that the new FTR Carbon is compatible with the already extensive range of accessories specifically developed for the FTR platform, meaning riders have the ability to further customise their FTR.
The most sporty machine in the Indian Motorcycle lineup to date, the FTR 1200 platform is based around a liquid-cooled 1203cc V-twin engine, developing 125hp (93kW) of power and 120Nm of torque.
With progressive, predictable power delivery and plenty of low-end grunt, the FTR 1200 range is well suited for fun riding regardless of the situation.
As is the norm for modern bikes, the FTR 1200 offers improved confidence and control with lean-angle sensitive stability control, ABS, traction control, and wheelie mitigation control (if that’s your thing…) with engine mapping also able to be modified by three Ride Modes (Sport, Standard, Rain) providing different throttle response and traction control intervention levels.
At the time of writing Polaris New Zealand, the importers of Indian Motorcycles to our shores has yet to announce pricing and NZ availability of the new FTR 1200 Carbon.
