The 2022 Indian FTR line-up will be launched in India in a couple of months

It was earlier this year that the Indian FTR 1200 range was updated for global markets. For the new model range, the company updated the motorcycle and made it more tarmac-friendly, which was a demand, especially from Indian Motorcycle‘s European customers. The updated FTR 1200 range consists of four models which are the FTR, FTR S, FTR R Carbon and the FTR Rally. Now, we have confirmation from Lalit Sharma, Country Manager, Polaris India Pvt. Ltd. that the new Indian FTR 1200 will be launched in India in the next couple of months.

The FTR, FTR S and FTR R Carbon models now get 17-inch cast-Aluminium wheels which are shod with sticky Metzeler Sportec tyres, meant for riding on the tarmac. The rake angle is now steeper, at 25 degrees and the trail now stands at 99.9 mm. Thanks to these revisions, the bike’s seat height is now 36 mm shorter than before. The ProTaper handlebars are now 40 mm narrower as well. The company says that all these changes make the FTR range more potent in terms of handling, agility and responsiveness.

The FTR range continues to get 1,203 cc V-Twin motor which is liquid-cooled and it makes 123 bhp and 120 Nm at 6,000 rpm.

The FTR R Carbon gets Akrapovic exhaust along with lightweight carbon fibre bits such as fuel tank, front fender, covers and the headlight nacelle. The Carbon also gets top-spec Ohlins suspension at both ends. Stopping power comes from radially mounted dual Brembo brakes up front and a single disc at the rear. In terms of electronics, the FTR S and the FTR R Carbon get three riding modes, wheelie control, stability control, traction control, cornering ABS and cruise control.
