    Will be interesting to see how HD react to the FTR 1200. Will it be innovation...or capitulation?

    I just hope they both will come up with something good. I really like the Indian but also would love to see a new XR (with better QC that doesn't leave metal in the brakes...)

    As a pauper I could only afford to defect to Indian if those ghastly collectors of investment bikes take a serious interest in the XR, something I'd hate to see (and I'd cry to see her disappear down the road) but......less weight, more power, a six speed 'box.

    I can pass on a Monster or a Guzzi Grifo- almost but not quite doing it for me- but the Indian just may tick every requirement.

    Somehow, I never link "Harley Davidson" and "innovation"..........every time there has been something a little different, ( the XR, the VRod, the Buell situation ) HD has let it wither on the vine. I rather suspect that the decision-makers at HD will look at the FTR1200 and say "Yeah, been there, done that".

    Harley will respond to the FTR1200 by throwing a set of flattrack bars and number plates on the Street 750. This will be forever known as " The General Custer"

    If you can believe Ola, it’s going to be full boat with Ohlins and CF, hope at least they are options...

    My one gripe is it doesn't have upside down forks.

    Nope,,, that has about as much the same look as to the prototype as does that new FXR to our XR1200's.

    1. Can that really be dissimilar rims front and rear? Ones a ten spoke, the other looks to be 16 spokes. Really?
    2. Rear shock has a reservoir- which is fixed to the unsprung end of the shock. Hmmmm...
    3. And what's with the "antenna" protruding up from the seat area? I'm hoping that's just a USB outlet raised for illustration, otw it don't look too comfortable.
    4. Last gripe. Hope the oil cooler is well shrouded, going to collect quite a bit of road grit and general trash down there under the front cylinder.

    But hey. I'm still interested. Good for Indian/Polaris in having a go at a genre of bike HD couldn't/wouldn't make a success of. It took a while for Ducati to really score a hit with the Monster, remember, and now they've been making them for 20 years, they're everywhere and are one of the most profitable bikes for that company- a powerful, agile, versatile and kind of funky roadster. Ducati have further leveraged off the Monster theme with the Streetfighter (not quite as successfully) plus the Scrambler now, and Aprilia have joined the party with their Dorsoduro and Shiver models. BM have given us I don't know how many variations of R9T to cater to this market segment as well, and clearly HD see the niche too with their forthcoming liquid cooled Streetfighter, (pics elsewhere). Triumph now make a Bonneville which kind of fits into this segment too, especially the Thruxton. Now comes Indian with the FTR.

    But can they all succeed?

    Eh, I cannot see this in my future, but if that new scrambler has 100 hp and weighs in at 445, maybe?

    The stock Scout motor has 100hp., this will have more.

    It will probably have the octane motor. That means 106 hp. 100 is enough, heck my brother was scared to take his ktm out of rain mode

    What is that a schematic of? Looks like a Duc motor. (too many bikes out there to keep track of)
