Polaris won’t dump Indian. Feels like they’re so far behind on ‘22s they need to catch up. Worst thing they could do is announce and start shipping ‘23s when ‘22 orders aren’t filled. Victory and Indian are different.
I have a ‘19 FTR. Love that bike! It’s crazy fast and a blast to ride. If you don’t mind the first model year quirks, there are a few ‘19s on Cycle Trader with low miles.I’ve been eyeballing this style FTR for awhile now, has sport tires and few other options so is more street able View attachment 636340
The ‘19 model year has a larger front tire and a small rear and the combination makes finding road-specific tires hard; you’re basically stuck with the tire make/model that came with the bike (quasi flat-track-inspired). They’re not bad, but don’t perform as well a street specific tires. Also, the tire size combined with suspension height makes it a pretty tall bike; not great for riders in 5’10”. Finally, the throttle response can be twitchy. I don’t have the S model that provides ride modes, so without flashing the bike, I got the standard throttle mapping. The bike basically wants to go fast all the time and it’s not truly happy loping along.Can you expand please
Exactly why with the name recognition indian has they’ll make plenty money round the world n sales to keep it worth their while. We know their capabilities when making great machines including motorcycles. I’m holding out hope that in a year far far away they’ll throw tribute to themselves by incorporating our beloved Victory name into/onto sumpin kewl cause is awesome logo ideas V n I
