With an urban scrambler aesthetic that’s certain to turn heads, the FTR Rally takes a step in a new direction while still maintaining some of the original styling DNA of the FTR 1200. The FTR Rally features Titanium Smoke paint with the Indian Motorcycle headdress graphic, aluminum wire wheels with stainless-steel spokes and a red pinstripe, brown aviator seat, a new rally windscreen and Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires.
“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. “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 Rally combines responsive handling with upright ergonomics to create a commanding riding experience suitable for urban environments or backroad adventures. It’s equipped with cruise control, a USB fast charge port, and new ProTaper handlebars that are two inches higher for better comfort and handling. The FTR Rally also features an LED headlight and LED turn signals offering better visibility with minimal maintenance.
The 1203cc V-twin engine features a smooth power delivery with loads of low-end punch. The engine produces [claimed] 123 horsepower, [claimed] 87 ft-lbs of torque, and features a flat torque curve to deliver a fun riding experience in all conditions. The engine is housed in a black trellis frame and the FTR Rally will continue to feature an inverted front suspension with radially mounted dual Brembo brakes for exceptional control and stopping power.
The 2020 FTR Rally is compatible with the entire range of 40+ accessories specifically developed for the FTR platform, giving riders the ability to customize combinations and maintain the independence they seek when purchasing an Indian Motorcycle.

Indian Motorcycle 2020 FTR Rally Suspension
The front suspension of the FTR Rally is comprised of 43mm upside down cartridge forks with 5.9″ of travel. The front suspension has a hollow axle to minimize weight, with a 26.3° rake and 5.1″ of trail. For the rear, the FTR Rally utilizes a swingarm design with a tubular steel construction and a side mounted monoshock providing 5.9″ of wheel travel to ensure maximum grip and compliance. The swingarm pivot attaches to the engine’s crankcase in order to keep the wheelbase more compact, while a hollow rear axle helps reduce weight. The FTR Rally features a monoshock with preload and rebound adjustments.

The FTR Rally features dual radially mounted 320mm disc front brakes that are mounted directly to the wheel to decrease weight.
