Indian® FTR™ 1200

Personally, I'm kinda excited by this machine. To my eye it looks pretty versatile. I can see this becoming a baseline platform capable of being offered in a variety of different styles - Sport Touring, ADV, Scrambler etc.
Many possibilities....

I Ride: 2013 White Strada
+120hp/ 85 tq
+Fast charge USB on the dash
+Strong LED headlamp setup
+Cruise control standard
- 3.4 gal tank
- 508 lbs wet
- Adjustable suspension?
- Single side luggage option only with available exhaust

I'm not in love with the style but it would be a great bar hopper.

The S model has adjustable front and rear suspension at a higher price point. Possibly too pricey, though it also includes an electronics upgrade with TC + riding modes and a touchscreen dashboard with mobile device integration (all standard on many bikes these days).

I hadn't even noticed the various style packages offered when I posted this. I like that the rally package has spoke wheels. Looking at the cost of those packages the price goes into nearly astronomical territory ~ $20K (S model plus package).
For that kind of money there's other more well featured choices....

Also that angled exhaust is problematic... Makes me think of the 87 Super Magna - don't leave it in the rain....
