- Sports flat-tracker inspired design.
- Appears to get LCD instrument cluster, LED headlamp and Brembo brake setup.
- To be unveiled at Intermot on October 1.
The production-spec Indian FTR 1200 has been spotted just a week before it is officially unveiled at the Intermot on October 1.
The bike looks similar to the design patents that were leaked a while ago. The FTR 1200 seems to offers a mildly-aggressive riding position thanks to the upright handlebars, long tank and slightly rear set foot pegs. The side-mounted twin exhaust and dual-sport tyres and short tail section add to its flat-track motorcycle appeal.
It is also most likely to get a LCD-instrument cluster to put it on par with its rivals. The circular LED-headlamp is flanked by turn indicators also likely to be LED units. While the suspension setup consists of inverted front forks and an offset monoshock at the rear, braking is done by twin disc at the front and a single disc at the rear; sourced from Brembo.
The Indian FTR 1200 was spotted in a black and red paint scheme with the 'Indian' logo in a retro font. It gets majority of blacked out components, however the trellis frame and monoshock are red while the forks are gold-finished. The bike is expected to be powered by a retuned version of the 1130cc, V-Twin motor from the Indian Scout.
The American manufacturer is likely to launch the bike in India sometime next year. It will compete against the Ducati Scrambler 1100, BMW R Nine T and the Triumph Scrambler 1200 which will be globally unveiled on October 24.
