The iconic American motorcycle company confirmed that an FTR1200 will be going into production with on sale date in 2019; inspired by Indian’s storied history in flat track racing.
The announcement comes in response to months of speculation and demand for a street version of the company’s wildly successful FTR750 – a purpose-built flat track racer that has dominated the American Flat Track professional racing series since its introduction in 2017. In addition to announcing production, Indian also announced a sweepstakes where riders can enter to win one of the first bikes to come off the assembly line.
“When we unveiled the FTR1200 Custom at EICMA, we said we’d listen to feedback from riders around the world,” said Steve Menneto, President, Indian Motorcycle. “Riders definitely have spoken and the response has been overwhelming. We’re proud and excited to announce that we will be putting the FTR1200 into production.”
The FTR1200’s full specification is yet to be announced, but it will embody a flat tracker style, housed in a trellis frame and powered by a new V-twin engine.
