Pictures and specs of Indian’s base-model street hooligan

2022 Indian FTR in Black Smoke has a starting MSRP of $12,999.Morgan Gales

Indian’s FTR has been refined for model year 2022. The American V-twin that has always shown its flat-tracking roots in spades now adapts its approach to better suit more casual, daily street use. While the FTR Rally still boasts its scrambler dress, the other three FTR models now come with 17-inch wheels, a lower seat height, and an updated engine tune.

While the new bike is a little less rowdy, its performance on road is now more consistent. The 17-inch wheels improve handling and the new tires help get the 1,203cc engine’s power to the ground more effectively. As Michael Gilbert said in his Cycle World First Ride: “The FTR isn’t just an upgraded version of the original model. It is a real step toward Indian holding a significant slice of the sport standard segment. The FTR, updated and revised for more pinpoint road performance, remains a genuinely fun motorcycle that promises a good time, just with a somewhat different personality.”

The bike we’re looking at here today is the base-model FTR, which means it comes with a simple, round analog gauge and matte black paint, as well as fully adjustable suspension, just not the top-shelf Öhlins like the R Carbon model. This model starts at $12,999; these mean machines are in Indian dealerships ready to test ride now.
