INTERMOT: Indian CONFIMS prices for all-new FTR1200. Base model costs £11,899.


We’ve been telling you that Indian has been quietly working on a road going version of its hugely successful flat track machine for a couple of years now – and we’ve finally been proved right, as the iconic American bike builder revealed its all-new FTR1200 and FTR1200S at INTERMOT in Cologne last night. And we’ve just been told the cost of its three new model variants – with prices starting at £11,899 for its base model.

Inspired by Indian’s storied history and recent domination of flat track racing, the all-new FTR1200 and FTR1200S blend flat tracker styling with a powerful new liquid-cooled V-Twin engine – while taking styling cues from Indian’s championship-winning FTR750 race bike that has dominated American Flat Track since it was introduced in 2016, in addition to its FTR1200 Custom, which was unveiled this time last year at the big bike shows.

Rich Christoph, the Indian Motorcycle Senior Designer who was also instrumental in the design of the FTR750 and FTR1200 Custom said: “This is an extremely exciting platform for us, and after investing such a significant amount of time, expertise and energy in the design process, it’s an incredible feeling to finally show the world these motorcycles. Our primary focus was to ensure these motorcycles carried the same lines and form language as the FTR750 and 1200 Custom.  We knew that’s what riders around the world fell in love with. I couldn’t be more proud to turn the FTR750 into a flat tracker for the street and help launch Indian into a new era.”
