Indian FTR S 2021

The Indian FTR S attracts attention neither through its sportiness, nor through its engine, nor through its flattracker look alone. Rather, it is the unique overall package that makes it stand out. A powerful, American V2 in a chic neo-retro flattrack design and naked bike ergonomics cannot be found anywhere else. So if you are a fan of this special combination, you almost have to go for the FTR and you won't regret it. Any weaknesses go hand in hand with the special features. Only a quickshifter and a little more tank capacity could have been added.
