The Indian Motorcycle organization has been prodding us about the up and coming FTR1200 road bicycle that it’s conveying to advertise one year from now, and now we have a quite decent take a gander at the machine, on account of a patent application with the USPTO.
Demonstrating the motor and suspension of the Indian FTR1200 in line illustrations, we can see that the new road bicycle will have a trellis outline, and a motor that looks especially like the v-twin engine found on the Indian Scout cruiser.
The aggregate bundle resembles the makings of a strong road tracker bike. The wheelbase is conservative, and our estimations propose a 19″ front wheel, with a 18″ back. The riding position looks upright, however forceful.
Furthermore, the motor resembles a focused on individual from the edge. Of note too is the swingarm, which seems as though it came ideal off the Indian FTR1200 Custom idea. Our falcon eyes detect a LCD dash, underseat fuel tank, double front brake rotors, outspread mounted calipers, and an intriguing spot to shroud a battery.
The stun is counterbalanced to the side, as on the Indian FTR750 race bicycle, yet rather than the high-mounted scrambler debilitate that we would expect on a road track, a double tipped framework is utilized, which has an extremely “Ducati Monster” look to it.
While this patent pictures give us a smart thought of what’s in store from the Indian FTR1200, what stays to be seen is the thing that motor Indian has tapped for the FTR1200. The idea bicycle sourced a 1,133cc v-twin from the Scout cruiser. With a name like FTR1200, we would expect another and bigger engine for this road tracker, yet taking a gander at the line illustrations, the motor looks precisely like the Scout’s. We speculate the apple doesn’t fall a long way from the tree.
Firm specs and appropriate photographs are fourteen days away, as we anticipate that the Indian FTR1200 will make a big appearance at the INTERMOT appear in Cologne, Germany.
