American manufacturer Indian Motorcycles will launch the FTR 1200 S and FTR 1200 S Race Replica in India on 19 August. Do note that the company had announced the beginning of bookings for the FTR 1200 S and the FTR 1200 S Race Replica in December last year. The prices for both the models were revealed during the same period.
The Indian FTR 1200 S was priced at INR 14.99 lakh*, while the FTR 1200 S Race Replica carried an INR 15.49 lakh* tag. The company’s India website also lists a standard FTR 1200, although the price for that variant was not announced in December 2018. The final details about the variants and the changes in prices (if any) will be announced on the 19 August. Potential buyers can book the FTR 1200 S and 1200 S Race Replica for a token amount of INR 2 lakh.
The championship-winning FTR 750 race bike inspires the FTR 1200 range. The FTR in the branding stands for 'Flat Track Race' bike, while 1200 represents the displacement. The flat track-inspired motorcycle gets all the street-legal components such as headlight, tail lamp, blinkers, rear-view mirrors and a front disc brake. The rear hugger-mounted number plate gives the tail section a cleaner, minimalistic look. The motorcycles can be further customised with over 40 optional accessories in four distinct collections.
Key features of the FTR 1200 S include Bosch stability control with a six-axis inertial sensor, selectable riding modes (Sport, Standard and Rain), cruise control, USB fast-charge port and a 4.3-inch colour touchscreen dash. Electronic rider aids include Lean Angle Sensitive (cornering) ABS, Traction Control, Wheelie Mitigation Control and ABS.
Mechanical specifications on the FTR duo include a 1203cc, V-twin cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valves (4-valves per cylinder) engine that delivers 120 hp of peak power and 115.2 Nm of maximum torque. The motor is linked to an Assist & Slipper clutch-enabled six-speed gearbox. The motorcycle tips the weighing scale at 235 kg (kerb weight).
Braking department comprises dual 320 mm front discs with 4-piston callipers and a single 265 mm rear disc with a 2-piston calliper. Shock absorption tasks are performed by fully adjustable, 43 mm inverted telescopic cartridge front forks and a fully adjustable piggyback IFP rear monoshock.
