The Indian FTR Rally was unveiled at the 2019 EICMA show in Italy. Like its name suggests, it is based on the FTR 1200 S but with a different character altogether. It is a more off-road capable version of the latter with a retro appeal.
The motorcycle sports a new Titanium Smoke paint scheme with a large Indian head on the side of the fuel tank. It also gets a small fly screen and a tan leather seat. On the other hand, to add to its off-road abilities, the FTR 1200 Rally offers a more upright riding position courtesy the 50mm taller ProTaper handlebars and revised ergonomics. The FTR 1200 Rally also rides on Scorpion Rally STR tyres that are wrapped around spoke wheels instead of the alloy wheels on the standard model.
Apart from these changes, the Indian FTR 1200 Rally remains the same. It comes powered by a 1205cc, liquid-cooled V-twin that churns out 125bhp and 117.9Nm. Suspension and braking duties are unchanged too. The bike rides on inverted forks and a monoshock at the rear while braking is done by 320mm discs up front and a 265mm disc at the rear.
Indian Motorcycle is expected to launch the off-road oriented FTR 1200 Rally in India sometime in 2020 priced slightly higher than the standard FTR 1200.
