    The National show is on this week and I got to pop in today, the Indian stand is very impressive and was easily the busiest while I was there. I got to see the FTR1200S in the flesh and it is a great looking bike particularly the riding position for the 6' + rider although the rear end will need a little customising, with limited imports initially I believe pre sales have more or less sold them out. CCM also had some nice bikes on display alongside a Spitfire! Came across a nice Brough Superior as well as a specially painted Vision IMG_20181119_1451359.jpg IMG_20181119_1546397.jpg IMG_20181119_1542506.jpg IMG_20181119_1537546.jpg IMG_20181119_1427376.jpg

    They are (slowly) getting more dealers but the response to the FTR appears to be phenomenal and for a good reason it's a great looking bike at a good price with the right stats. Can't wait to get mine, roll on next April

    Put my deposit down 6 weeks ago when they announced the prices and after I spoke with an Indian employee who explained how few would be coming to Europe initially :) As for price for some reason it looks like we are getting a good deal in the UK the race replica I have ordered is £13499 compared to a Europe price of around 16000 euros and still good compared with US$16000 when £ includes tax (20%) + US steel duty (Polaris are swallowing this) + OTR
