Indian revamps the FTR family

For 2021, the FTR lineup is being tuned for optimal street performance, which should take the platform to the next level.

 

To improve performance, engine tuning has been refined, suspension settings optimized, a steeper steering head angle utilized, trail shortened and wheel size changed.

All FTR models (except for the Rally) use Metzeler Sportec as their first tires. Instead of 19-inch wheels at the front and 18-inch wheels at the rear, they now use 17-inch wheels. The new suspension is fully adjustable. On the FTR R Carbon model, it comes from Öhlins.

Because of the smaller wheels, the suspension travel is 120mm instead of the previous 150mm. The seat height is 817mm, 36mm lower than before.

 

Performance data

The engine has been converted to Euro5 and produces 125 PS, as well as a maximum torque of 120 Nm. This actually increases the power of the V2 somewhat. The new tuning should also ensure that the engine starts better in cold conditions. Cylinder deactivation of the rear cylinders at idle reduces waste heat.
