This past weekend I helped a friend with the pickup/purchase a brand new 2019 Indian Chieftain Dark Horse and couldn't resist the allure of the FTR! We got a great deal on both bikes including a bunch of free stuff from the North County Indian dealership. I didn't intend to buy a bike on this trip but the closeout price I was given was just too good to pass up! I basically got the top spec 1200s race replica for less than the base model FTR. Throwing in the Indian Motorcycles helmet and delivery on top was icing on the cake!
I rode lots of different bikes this year and the FTR was the most exciting street machine of them all. The attention to detail and quality on the build of the American made FTR rivals and surpasses any bike manufactured today. The race replica comes with an Indian red frame and swing-arm, fully adjustable front and rear suspension, and Akrapovic pipes. It's one of a kind style and 120hp make for a fun and unique street bike. I hope Indian will keep bringing great new bikes to market like this in the future!
