Unless you have been hiding under a rock, and certainly haven’t been reading MCNews.com.au for the past couple of years, you would be well aware of Indian’s domination of American Flat Track racing with the FTR 750 racer, and right from the start Indian has been teasing us with custom variants at various motorcycle shows in the lead up to the production ready model for the world market.

A high-comp 1203 cc V-Twin provided the ample 120 horsepower of motivation while the 115 Nm of peak twist comes at 6000rpm which suggests this big-bore (102 mm) and relatively short stroke (73.6 mm) water-cooled 60-degree twin has plenty of flexibility. Those numbers are similar to what the now discontinued Harley V-Rod made, and that torque figure is only 9 Nm shy of the latest 1200 Monster from Ducati.

Indian are also really playing up the sporting bent in these press shots with plenty of wheel up action, nice to see in these politically correct ‘beige’ times. I look forward to hoiking some mingers on the FTR 1200 in due course!
