Even before the Indian FTR 1200 arrives there is already a host of accessories available for the bike including two types of Akrapovic slip-on titanium and stainless steel mufflers.
These accessories should help defray some of the criticism of the exhaust and plump seat. It may also thwart some of the aftermarket suppliers from producing their own accessories.
The four accessory packs are labelled Tracker, Rally, Sport, and Tour, two of which have high-mount Akrapovic exhausts similar to the FTR1200 Custom concept which was universally praised.
Indian Motorcycle Australia spokesman Peter Harvey says the parts are all individually available “to allow riders to build the bike in the style they prefer”.
There is no discount pricing for buying the parts as a whole pack.
