    Tracker, Rally, Sport & Tour Collections Completely Restyle Indian’s New

    FTR 1200 & FTR 1200 S
    MILAN, ITALY (November 6, 2018) – Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, today announced its FTR 1200 accessory lineup at the International Motorcycle and Accessories Exhibition (EICMA) in Milan, Italy. More than 40 individual accessories provide riders with endless style combinations to make the FTR 1200 truly their own. At the same time, Indian has curated four collections – Tracker, Rally, Sport and Tour – allowing riders to transform the FTR 1200 into the style that represents their riding preference.

    Indian broke new ground for American V-twins when developing its FTR 1200 – an aggressively styled creation that blends elements of flat track, street and sport into one of the most unique motorcycles ever developed. The introduction of the four accessory collections, and the complete lineup of more than 40 parts and accessories, takes the FTR 1200 platform to another level, allowing riders to completely restyle the bike into a personal expression unlike any other.

    “In its stock form, the FTR 1200 is a beautifully-designed flat track-inspired street bike with immense opportunity for personalisation and customisation,” said Reid Wilson, Sr. Director for Indian Motorcycle. “The new accessory lineup significantly elevates the FTR 1200 platform. Riders can completely restyle the look and feel of the bike to better represent their riding style through one of our four collections or by mixing and matching parts to create something truly one-of-a-kind.”

    Built for personalisation, the FTR 1200 collections comprise more than 40 different parts and accessories and feature the following:

    Tracker

    The Tracker collection for the FTR 1200 is most representative of the bike’s flat-track racing roots. It’s the closest riders will come to a street-legal FTR750 race bike. A shallow seat with a unique seat cowl, high-mount slip-on exhaust by Akrapovič, and side-mounted number plates set the Tracker collection apart.

    Rally

    The Rally collection draws inspiration from lonely camp sites traversed on forgotten forest roads. Riders will immediately notice sturdy aluminium spoked wheels and a high-mount Akrapovič exhaust on the Rally collection. A unique seat, mudguards, tank covers, windscreen, Rally Handlebar by ProTaper, and a high-mount license plate holder round out the Rally collection. The configuration allows the FTR 1200 to take full advantage of the bike’s 150 mm of suspension travel.

    Sport

    The Sport collection is a no-nonsense assembly of carbon fibre parts that scream speed and visually underscore the FTR 1200’s performance potential. The Sport collection is the FTR 1200 distilled down to its athletic core, outfitted with a low mount slip-on exhaust by Akrapovič, and a unique carbon fibre front mudguard, tank cover and seat cowl.

    Tour

    The Tour collection provides a heavy dose of utility, turning the FTR 1200 into a highway weapon for smashing miles on longer journeys. With plenty of storage via water-resistant, roll-top side messenger bag, tank bag, and a windshield, the Tour collection keeps FTR 1200 riders comfortable on longer-hauls.

    “When developing the FTR 1200, it was important for us to create a platform that offered dynamic, yet convenient, personalisation and customisation opportunities,” said Ben Lindaman, Indian Motorcycle Senior International Product Manager. “We’re extremely proud of these accessories and collections, as they drastically change the design of the bike – ultimately creating more styling options to satisfy a wide-range of rider preferences.”

    The FTR 1200 combines race-inspired design and nimble handling with an upright riding position to create a commanding riding experience. A new 1203cc V-Twin engine with approximately 120 horsepower (90kW) makes sure every rider feels like a pro when they twist the throttle. The new platform is a key component in Indian Motorcycle’s broader mission to expand its global appeal and reach new riders.

    Just dawned on me Suzuki's TL1000 proves how far you can push a V-twin engine in a streetable bike (not to mention Ducati's hyperbikes). Not casting an aspersion at the 1200 -- far from it. I rode the DL1000, a detuned version of the TL engine, and that was impressive. Flash of insight into how far Indian can go with that format's horsepower if they want.

    Definitely looking forward to Indian making a Landslide with this Model, even though not much interest in one for myself ..

    Different styles to match different riders.
    We’re already excited to see the new Indian FTR 1200 come to the market—a fresh, younger-looking model that has the potential to appeal to a broader audience and that creates a clear cut from the usual Indian cruiser. We’re all over it. Today, Indian took the stage in Milan to show off a brand new collection of accessories that will allow future owners to give their FTR their own personal touch.

    We’re not talking about one or two color options and a fancy exhaust tip to match—Indian went all out with no less than four themed collections of accessories.

    The Tracker collection draws inspiration straight from the flat-track roots of the FTR. It borrows a few features from the competition-ready FTR 750 and turns the road-legal 1200 into a dust-monster with a set of Akrapovič dual exhaust tips, a gas tank cover, a shallower seat as well as number plates.

    The Rally collection take the FTR off road and into the forest for an experience that takes the rider off the beaten paths. The kit includes a set of spoke wheels, as well as a high-mount Akrapovič dual exhaust, mud guards, tank side covers, a wider rally handlebar, a front cowl, and a matching brown seat.

    The Sport collection is a carbon fiber extravaganza that underlines the model’s performance rather than its ruggedness. It’s a more refined package that gives this flat-track inspired model a more suave and sleek appearance. The kit includes a low-mount Akrapovič dual exhaust and carbon fiber gas tank and pillion covers.

    Last but not least is the Touring collection that gives the FTR a more utilitarian look. The collection includes a swanky set of waterproof tank and saddle bags, a windscreen as well as a brown saddle to match.

    I gotta say, this particular setup with the tail section cowl, to my eyes at least, is a thing of beauty.
