Interesting, but all that form and design did not turn into sales in NZ.
Hate that. Feels like FTR sales are picking up here, but I don't have data to back up the feeling.
They teased us with that bike for 2 years. That killed sales. Too bad because it’s an awesome bike
I agree awesome bike. It was priced too high. The seat height scares many people off as well. I'm still waiting to see if they offer any blow out pricing on these as they are 2 model years old very soon and sitting on the floor at most dealerships. If I didn't have a phenomenal Ducati in my stable, I would already own a race replica.
That's a good video, made me want one even more.
They're discounted 2k from original pricing, here.
The blowout pricing is coming if it ain't already here guys, I just bought a 2019 base model for $6500 below MSRP and there's still at least 1 more available at that price in BC.
I've wanted the FTR since it was revealed but always said I would only buy one for the price of a Scout 60. We're finally there and here I am with one in the garage!
Is for sure would have tried one if on time, but a bit worried about seat height at my age .. At age 50 or less would have been all over it, because I know would have loved the lean angle .. But supporting that weight at my age at a 30% angle when stopped with a 29" inseam, just have to pass .. One reason love the Victory XC with 26.75 " Seat Height yet still offers almost 6" Ground Clearance (5.8") so can still manage the 850 lb weight ..
That’s a great deal. The US base price is 11,499.00. Hope they offer something like that
Jay, not a problem for me. I found these awesome riding boots for sale....
I just did a 800km plus ride including a poker run this past weekend with a mate with a FTR Carbon. All suspension settings he has not touched so factory settings. Well, well, well, I can tell you, that thing was flying around twisties and corners like no ones business. On the straights, that 120hp just ramped up the road like a rocket. Impressed would not even come close to what I was thinking. By the way, He used to own the Candy Red 2017 Chieftain Limited which I have always thought to be the nicest bike Indian has made since Polaris days. He even says he likes it way more than the Chieftain, fun, fun riding for him and he is approaching 60 years old. Oh yeah, I won the poker run with a measly pair of 7s and 9s, $200 cash and a bottle of Jack. Jacques the FTR owner got second with a pair of 6s and 9s, $100 and a small bottle of Southern Comfort. 2 Indians on the ride = 2 winners, yeha.
At around 500lbs I think, it's not as bad as you think to hold it up at that lean angle. I have noticed that the well used demos with higher mileage are much lower than new seat height, as the suspension breaks in, it comes down quite a bit. They also ran better. If I could get a race replica for maybe 11k out the door..... Maybe they should throw in an eFTR to get them moving! One for dad, one for little one!
