With his FTR 1200, Indian wanted to bring the spirit of Flat Track to the road. It was also the OCCAZ to unleash an engine much stronger than the usual American. Roadster, not too much displacement and enough watts to surprise observers. 120 horses balanced from a 1200, we had not seen that since the 1250 V-Rod.
Since then, the FTR has been thinking of its FTR 750 Scout circuit cousin, the plumes of earth it lifts, in the fashion of wheels eager for paths that only see asphalt. It then takes a rougher posture and equips itself with accessories to become the FTR 1200 Rally.
A bit scrambler this FTR?!? Not quite, but it retrieves certain attributes. The most obvious is the possession of spoke rims; more for the style than for the function, the machine having neither the appearance nor the presentations of an off-road machine. However, the bike insists on this desire, as evidenced by the large cobblestone tires of the Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR. Rather versatile mixed compounds, and demerdard as long as the ground is not too greasy.
A small windscreen protects the minimalist speedometer, focused on its tachometer. The rider will also have at his disposal a 50 mm higher ‘ProTaper handlebar, giving a more relaxed and relaxed riding position..
With the grumpy outfit of Illinois, the FTR 1200 Rally delivers a custom brown saddle, cruise control, a USB port for charging nomadic devices, an LED headlight and flashers, a tubular steel trellis frame , an inverted fork and Brembo 4-piston radial-mount brakes. No changes specified for the Twin, while it claims 126 horsepower here. Have we been specified the watts of the version of other countries? ?
Lovers of American motorcycles will attach more importance to the torque in force, a maximum of 12.2 mkg / 120 Nm. Thus adorned, the Indian FTR 1200 Rally can go to taunt the terraces, imitation-scrambler and bully the paths bordering the lakes. The paths, eh, rather passable; not the paths where the trees are born.
For less frills, the standard version is not far in the catalog – If needed for more potential and electronics, the S version deserves a little more than a glance.
