S&S Cycle adds modes to Indian FTR 1200

S&S Cycle has developed an Engine Control Manager system to add the engine modes of the FTR 1200 S to the base model.

In 2018, the Wisconsin company was quick to develop a full exhaust system for the just-released Indian FTR 1200 similar to the prototype model that had everyone salivating.

It cost a whopping $US1874.95 (about $A2878), so they followed up with more affordable slip-on mufflers at $US489.95 (about $750) plus various billet aluminium bits and pieces.

They claim the bike is “one of our favourite new machines”.

“Simple installation and easy-to-access switch allows for quick mode changes and transforms the bike in a single click,” the say.

Early this month, parent company Polaris announced their motorcycle sales were up by 2% (they never reveal actual unit sales) in the first quarter.

This is despite global motorcycle sales decreasing and Harley-Davidson sales down by 17.7%.

Polaris Industries claim it is the result of strong sales of FTR 1200 and the new Challenger liquid-cooled tourer.
