    Anyone heard any rumors about the horsepower spec on the FTR 1200?

    Someone told me that the demo truck driver said that it will be in the 120 hp range. That seems really high to me.

    That's still awfully sporty . . . remembering what my 100-hp, 850-lb Valkyrie would do.

    As is always the case it won't be long before a cheap and easy to install Stage 1 kit is available that brings measured wheel horsepower up to around 115 while simultaneously dropping 15 or 20 lbs in emissions hardware. A properly uncorked FTR 1200 will have a power to weight ratio of 4.25:1.

    The same power to weight ratio as a 1200 bhp Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport.

    Which I fully understand is a silly comparison to make and that there are countless motorcycles in the sport segment that will crush the FTR 1200, but it's too fun not to, bench racing is a serious addiction.

    That's a fun comparison none-the-less. But may I suggest a better analogy might be the Ford Raptor. (I passed a Veyron on I-10 westbound between Pensacola and Mobile. Montana plates. At first I thought it was an Alfa. Had to find it on the Internet to identify it. There was an elderly gentleman driving who put me in mind of Onasis -- thick mane of silvery-white hair, Hollywood-director type glasses with dramatic thick black temples -- who looked VERY tense. With a door ding devaluing the car by about $50,000, that's understandable. I wouldn't take one of those on the highway without a bodyguard of no less than four Hummers, and it would never see a Wal-Mart parking lot.

    Working backwards, the Indian 750 FTR produces 109 HP. So theoretically, the 1200 FTR could have been capable of producing about 174 HP which is in Ducati 1200 range. Sadly, emissions and other things have reduced it down to a reported 120. But I bet those ponies are just sitting there waiting to be released by some tuning and mods.
