As we’re all locked down and social distancing, bike manufacturers have turned to virtual unveilings. In our newsletter of April 11th we wrote about BMW unveiling their R18 Cruiser. This time it’s Indian, with their 1200 FTR Carbon!
This is one beautiful machine if you ask me. With its carbon front fender, headlight cowl, passenger seat cowl and fuel tank airbox cover, it not only looks awesome…it also loses some pounds. The stainless steel Akrapovic exhaust, with its mat black titanium mufflers doesn’t look too shabby on it either 🙂
Technology wise it’s decently equipped with all the safety and luxury feature you might expect from a bike in this class. Cruise Control, ABS, Traction Control, LED lights, Lean Angle Sensitive Stability Control, Wheelie mitigation control, LED Touch Screen dash with ability to connect your mobile phone (no CarPlay or Android Auto though).
Engine wise it’s pretty much the same as the rest of the 2020 FTR family. The 120 Nm torque and 93Kw’s give it more than enough punch and power!
All in all a very nice addition to the FTR family. Here’s the official unveiling video:
