Exclusive collaboration introduces 400 co-branded FTR x 100% R Carbon motorcycles,delivering a raw slice of Americana
I was drawn like a moth to a flame when my eyes fell upon this stunning beauty. As much as I've always had a yearning for the FTR, the 100% R Carbon had me spellbound. The glint of the blue carbon fibre under the lights of Motorcycle Live 2023 at The NEC only added to the prized podium.
Indian Motorcycle has teamed up with 100% to celebrate riders who dare to carve their own path. With 100% linked to iconic moments that have built today’s modern motocross and Indian Motorcycle’s celebrated 123-year history in motorcycling, these two American brands have helped shape the rich fabric of motorcycling with their respective trailblazing spirts.
Pulling styling cues from 100%’s roots in action sports, the FTR x 100% R Carbon has been beautifully designed for the performance-minded rider who wants to stand out from the crowd. The bike features a one-of-a-kind Blue Candy carbon fibre tank, headlight nacelle, seat cowl and front fender. Its bright white powder coated frame pops, while gloss paint finishes and red accents throughout deliver a high-quality fit and finish.
Collectively, the FTR x 100% R Carbon is a raw slice of Americana. Built on the top-of-the-line FTR R Carbon, the FTR x 100% R Carbon features even more upgrades and details that set it apart. Striking Indian Motorcycle and 100% co-branding highlight each tank side, its rear seat cowl, and the chin fairing. Race-ready Öhlins® front forks and rear shock spring get custom blacked out treatment for 100% more attitude. A black-finished Titanium Akrapovič exhaust and carbon fibre components — engine covers, chain guard and exhaust heat shield — add custom detailing expected on a limited-edition model. Exacting attention to craftmanship shines with Gilles Tooling parts, including bar-end weights, oil cap and radiator cap.
Nothing is standard about the performance of FTR x 100% R Carbon: featuring a 92 kW, liquid-cooled V-twin engine with 118 Nm of torque, radially mounted dual-disc Brembo® brakes, a 101 mm Touchscreen Display Powered by RIDE COMMAND with turn-by-turn navigation*, Bluetooth® connectivity and three selectable ride modes, Rain, Standard and Sport, which deliver a personalised riding experience.
The FTR x 100% R Carbon is highly desirable and exclusive, with only 400 motorcycles being produced and only 250 available outside of North America. Bikes will begin shipping to international dealers immediately and with less than one per dealer, interested riders should contact their local Indian Motorcycle dealer as soon as possible to reserve their FTR x 100% R Carbon.
