With the newly released FTR 1200 by Indian, there is a new American platform to exploit for customization. A 2 cylinder performance drivetrain full of modern technology and vehicle design approach started from scratch with unconventional optimized component integration. Keeping these aspects in mind as well as the successful heritage of the motorcycle started from a flat tracker. Redesigning it based on a different Indian heritage, board track racing, with which Indian dominated along with Harley Davidson in the early 20’s.
But this time on a bigger and more powerful platform, creating a line with a heavy focus on the engine as well as the seat flowing within the narrow gastank/airfilter cover and lightweight materials. Trying to keep design aspects, detailing and finished similar to the original FTR1200, it could be a performance bike for a different public and a different type of oval track.
