- Indian positions the new FTR Sport as an upgrade over the standard model, yet not as high-spec as the R Carbon. Compared to the standard FTR, the Sport has an impressive electronics package. Riders will enjoy three ride modes—Sport, Standard, and Rain—and cornering-aware traction control and ABS. To keep tabs on it all, there’s a four-inch round touchscreen dash with navigation. A seat cowl, chin fairing, and a front-mounted number plate upgrade the styling.
- The 2023 Indian FTR lineup shares several improvements. The brakes are tuned for a more aggressive response, there is a new clutch, there’s a new muffler (the R Carbon still has the Akrapovič unit), the dash is mounted a bit higher for easier viewing, and there’s a new tank panel design.
- The 2023 Indian FTR R Carbon continues to be differentiated by its suspension. The other three FTRs have ZF Sachs suspension. The high-end R Carbon gets Öhlins units. There are plenty of other differences, which we go over in our review of the FTR R Carbon.
- The 2023 Indian FTR Rally retains its unique position in the lineup with the traditional 19-/18-inch wheel combination. The other FTRs have contemporary 17-inch wheels all around.
- The FTR and FTR Sport are available in two colors, and each has a two two-tone option for a $250 premium. The FTR Rally comes in Black Smoke, while the FTR R Carbon is, as you’d expect, Carbon Fiber.
- The standard FTR has a price tag of $13,499. Add $1500 if you want the Rally. The Sport ups the ante another $750. Finally, the R Carbon is the most expensive choice in the 2023 Indian FTR lineup at $17,249.
