Indian Motorcycles - an American motorcycle manufacturing company had announced the India launch of their FTR 1200 S and the FTR 1200 S Race Replica back in December 2018. However, the Indian FTR 1200 S has been scheduled to be officially launched in India on August 21 and the FTR 1200 S Race Replica could be launched on a later date.
The FTR 1200 S is styled ore toward the scrambler body type, however, with a different approach. The wheels are alloy instead of spoke-wire, also the exhaust does not run alongside the motorcycle from under the seat, instead carries an upswept design. The headlamp unit is an all-LED unit and the instrument cluster is mounted right above it. The instrument cluster is a 4.3-inch touch screen unit. The side displays exposed bits of the chassis also the off-set rear mono-shock absorber.
On the mechanical front, the motorcycle gets a 1,203cc V-twin engine that is good enough for 124PS and 118Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox. The electronic includes a switchable ABS (antilock braking system), different riding modes and a six-axis inertia management unit for an advanced traction and stability control.
Expect the ex-showroom cost to be close to Rs 15.5 lakh mark and the motorcycle will rival the Ducati Scrambler 1100 and BMW R Nine T Scrambler.
