Demo truck brought one today.
Wow!,....That was interesting! but understandable,.......Its a three in one so I never thought it was going to be ACE at everything,.......but it does seem there is enough of each mode in the bike to keep a guy interested and smiling,......if that's your cup of tea,........it's not mine so I will stick to the Scout,.......until that midsized bagger comes along,.......,......and that would go too if ever an Indian Four came on the scene!!,.....
Without damping down enthusiasm for this one, Indian should now build a true adventure bike. That seems to be where the market is going -- or at least one of the places.
Completely agree. The FTR isn't too far away. They need to move the airbox, give it more fuel capacity, and more suspension while keeping the seat at about the same height.
Wish them all the best .. Pretty happy with what I'm riding now .. Always subject to change ..
Me too. I'm so happy with my '16 Chieftain that it will likely be my last bike.
I do like the looks of the FTR and am anxious to hear what our members have to say when they get them.
Here's another review from Buzz Cantor at American Iron Magazine:
Indian FTR 1200 Sport Video Review | | Motorcycle Reviews, Forums, and News - AIMag.com
It would have to be summed up as a good road bike. It's not a tourer and from the review certainly is not great , even good in the dirt. This most surprised me as it is derived from a bike whose purpose is to race in circles on the dirt. Maybe Indian will make a more true Adventure bike learning from the FTR. With such low fuel capacity it seems it may be better suited for a bike to go for a blast on to get lunch at a bar or café, up to about 100km from home. Now, where is that true mid size touring bagger, haha.
The 100 mile range has dampened my enthusiasm a mite.
