Indian Motorcycles is the American Motorcycle company which is known for its premium bikes. They produce some high-end premium bikes and now Indian Motorcycle has revealed their new bike, the 2020 FTR Carbon 1200.
After releasing a teaser video of the Indian FTR Carbon recently, the brand has now revealed the new bike. It has drawn inspiration from the company’s championship-winning flat tracker FTR750 which dominated the Flat Track Racing with three Grand National Titles in a row.
The Indian FTR Carbon is a premium version of the Indian FTR 1200. It comes with, as the name suggests, a host of carbon-fibre parts such as the front fender, headlight surround, tank/airbox covers, and pillion seat cowl. Indian Motorcycle has also added an ‘FTR Carbon’ branded centre console plate for that extra exclusivity. Another awesome feature of the carbon-fibre laden naked streetfighter is the set of black shotgun type Titanium Akrapovic exhausts.
The FTR Carbon uses the same 1,203 cc V-Twin engine that comes fitted with the other models in Indian Motorcycle’s FTR line-up. This liquid-cooled powerplant churns out 126 PS of power and has an impressively flat torque curve. Speaking of torque, it generates 120 Nm which provides the bike with an impressive low-end punch for exhilarating riding experience.
In terms of electronics, the FTR Carbon comes equipped with features such as lean-angle sensitive stability control, ABS, traction control and wheelie mitigation control. It also has 3 riding modes – Sport, Standard, Rain – that alter the bike’s throttle responses and traction control intervention levels. Indian Motorcycle has also included a 4.3-inch fully-digital and fully-colour instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity and USB fast-charger port.
While FTR Carbon 1200 is launched now, the FTR 1200 S was launched last year in the Indian market.
