“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 by city riders,” said Reid Wilson, vice president of Indian Motorcycle, in a company press release. “The FTR 1200 is as much about style and self-expression as it is about street-oriented performance, and the FTR Rally delivers that combination in a totally unique way.”

The FTR 1200 first came to market as a street-tracker based on the remarkably successful flat-track racer that has come to dominate the American Flat Track scene. The 1,203cc V-twin proved to be a composed yet exciting bike during our first ride last year and the new Rally is an eye-catching enhancement of that base.

It carries the same 1,203cc mill, which pumps out a claimed 123 hp and 87 pound-feet of torque, housed within a black trellis frame. The Rally also comes with the same 43mm fully adjustable fork and side-mounted monoshock, both with 5.9 inches of travel. Brembo kit handles braking duties and power is managed through a six-speed gearbox and power-assist slipper clutch. Riders can select from a high-mount or low-mount Akrapovič slip-on exhaust (as an upgrade).
