Indian has consolidated its FTR range to two full-time variants, FTR Sport and FTR R Carbon, raising the point of entry into its flat-track-inspired naked sportsbike range.

The 2023 Indian FTR will launch in March of 2023, priced from $25,995 rideaway for the base Sport, and $27,995 for the range-topping R Carbon.

This means that the base FTR and mid-spec FTR S, which were launched last year from $19,995 and $22,995, will no longer be available.

2023 Indian FTR Sport

New for 2023 is a 4.0-inch round TFT dash, a new ‘sports’ exhaust and retuned front braking system for a ‘firmer feel’. The speedo has been also been adjusted for easier viewing and a new clutch is said to improve performance.

Both the FTR Sport and high-spec R Carbon feature lean-angle sensitive traction control and cornering ABS, with three rider modes to choose from: Sport, Standard and Rain.

Distinguishing the range-topping Carbon is carbon-fibre components, fully adjustable Ohlins suspension, and a unique seat.

The base Sport can be finished in both black-and-red or white-and-red colour schemes.

As before, the Indian FTR is motivated by an 89kW/120Nm 1203cc V-twin, and is backed up by fully adjustable suspension, Brembo brakes and cylinder deactivation technology to manage engine heat at idle.
