Indian FTR1200 (2019 - 2021)

The Indian FTR1200 is one of the most unique motorcycles on the market. It is a standard naked bike inspired by flat track racers, an ultimate hooligan machine which will give you a big smile on your face.

The bike comes with an unusual wheel size and tires that are designed to slide. The rear tire is narrow and doesn’t provide enough grip in the corners. This can be super-cool if you know what to expect, but not so much if you are an inexperienced rider.

There is too much power on the regular model, which makes the bike non-compliant with the A2 licence. However, Indian has released an A2 version that is factory restricted to comply with the A2 licence requirements.

Please note that the below specifications are for the regular non-A2 compliant Indian FTR1200 model, rather than the 35kW / 70kW A2-compliant one.

A2 Licence Compliance

The Indian FTR1200 is a 1203cc A2-friendly bike. It has a power output of 90 kW (120 bhp), which exceeds the 35 kW (47 bhp) limit needed for an A2 licence. The bike has to be restricted by at least 61.1% to become A2 licence compliant.

You will need a restrictor to ride the Indian FTR1200 on an A2 motorbike licence. See the restrictor kits section to check out what restrictors are available for the Indian FTR1200.
