Indian is pitching the bike as ‘a level tracker for the road’ and power originates from another fluid cooled 1,203 cc V-Twin motor. It’s a fragmentary, yet by one way or another representative, single cubic centimeter bigger than Harley’s Sportster 1200 engine.
The engine is a DOHC with 4-valves per cylinder, and a 12.5:1 pressure proportion. It’s an over-square structure, with a drag and stroke of 102 mm x 73.6 mm. In spite of the fact that it’s identified with the Scout motor, around 80% of the segments are new and the crankshaft is ten pounds lighter.
The power crest is 120 hp at 8250 rpm, and 85 ft-lbs (115 Nm) of torque is conveyed at 6,000 rpm. As indicated by Indian’s press pack, “A level torque bend guarantees a dynamic, unsurprising force conveyance with heaps of low-end punch and adaptability.”
There are ‘high flow cylinder heads’ and double Mikuni throttle bodies, in addition to a low-dormancy crankshaft. Magnesium is utilized in the motor spreads to decrease weight.
Power sustains through a six-speed box with a slipper clutch, and hits the back wheel by means of chain drive.

The two models have 43mm Sachs USD cartridge forks and 320 mm double plate Brembo Monobloc 4-cylinder front brakes. The gold forks on the 1200 S are movable for preload, pressure and bounce back.
The swingarm takes after the one on the FTR750 race bike, and highlights a side-mounted monoshock. On the base FTR 1200 this has preload and bounce back modifications. On the S show, the monoshock additionally has a piggyback aluminum store and is flexible for pressure as well.
Suspension travel is 150 mm, front and raise, and the lean edge is a decent 43 degrees. Seat stature is a to some degree grandiose 840 mm.
The cast aluminum ten-talked wheels are F19/R18, and shod with Dunlop’s new DT3-R spiral tires, which mirror the track example of level track elastic.
Performance & Handling
ABS is standard, and the FTR 1200 S electronics package likewise incorporates steadiness, footing, and ‘wheelie moderation’ control with an inertial estimation unit.
The base model gets a roundabout 4-inch simple check with a USB quick charger. The S show gets a 4.3-inch ‘Ride Command’ LCD touchscreen show (underneath) and three ride modes; Sport, Standard and Rain. Throttle reaction and traction control can be modified further to suit the rider’s inclination.
The two models have worked in USB chargers.
