Indian have heavily updated their FTR1200 range for 2021, with a host of changes to make the street bike more dynamic and refined.
The American factory is taking the beloved FTR platform to a whole new level of street performance with the new lineup, which includes the FTR1200, FTR1200S, FTR1200R Carbon and FTR1200 Rally.

The biggest switch across the range is the models are fitted with 17in cast aluminium wheels – resulting in precise handling further enhanced with a steeper rake angle of 25° and a shorter trail of 99.9 mm. The previous model had a 19in front and a 18in rear.
Apart from the Rally, the FTR models come wrapped with Metzeler Sportec Street rubber. Smaller wheels, along with the bike’s front and rear suspension which offer 120mm of travel, contribute to a lower seat height – opening the door for more riders to throw a leg over the FTR.
Also, the ProTaper handlebars have been trimmed by 40mm (1.5-inches) to support the bike’s handling and give riders more control.
