2020 Indian FTR 1200 Rally Coming To America

Indian Motorcycle's new Scrambler will now be available in North America.

Published on 02.10.2020

Launched last November at EICMA, the Indian FTR Rally gained attention as a new Scrambler-version of the popular Indian FTR 1200. The new model combines retro styling with modern performance, upright ergos, knobby-style tires mounted on spoked wheels, and more. Originally, the FTR Rally was reported to be destined only for European and Asian markets. Now Indian has announced the FTR Rally will come to the U.S. and Canada too.

With an urban scrambler aesthetic that’s certain to turn heads, the FTR Rally takes a step in a new direction while still maintaining some of the original styling DNA of the FTR 1200.  The FTR Rally features Titanium Smoke paint with the Indian Motorcycle headdress graphic, aluminium wire wheels with stainless steel spokes and a red pinstripe, brown aviator seat, a new rally windscreen and Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires.

The FTR Rally comes with Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR rubber mounted to aluminum spoke wheels highlighted with a red pinstripe.

“We’re excited to offer North American riders a new take on the FTR 1200 that combines the unmistakable look and stance of the FTR with the more classic, rugged elements that have made scramblers so beloved to city riders,” said Reid Wilson, Vice President of Indian Motorcycle.

The FTR Rally combines responsive handling with upright ergonomics to create a commanding riding experience suitable for urban or backroad adventures. It’s equipped with cruise control, a USB fast charge port, and new ProTaper handlebars that are two inches higher for better comfort and handling. The FTR Rally also features an LED headlight and LED turn signals offering better visibility with minimal maintenance. 

The 1203cc V-twin engine features a smooth power delivery with loads of low-end punch.  The engine produces 123 horsepower, 87 ft-lbs of torque, and features a flat torque curve to deliver a fun riding experience in all conditions. The engine is housed in a black trellis frame and the FTR Rally will continue to feature an inverted front suspension with radially mounted dual Brembo brakes for exceptional control and stopping power.
