The most famous Indian FTR does not need any introduction: who loves the Spirit Lake based company perfectly knows the FTR journey: born in 2019 as a tribute to the Scout FTR750 performance and domain in the AMA Flat Track Championship. Indian Motorcycles focused on making a road legal version of the Scout FTR750, creating something that turned into a cult.
Let’s talk a bit about details: the FTR1200 measures 2.286mm in length, 850mm of width and 1297mm of height for only 221kg. It’s impressive, considering the engine is a 1203cc.
Recently, this April to be precise, Indian announced the FTR CARBON promising a premium version supposed to be even closer to the Flat Track AMA winning Scout FTR750. Indian kept its word and on May the 1st – during its presentation – unveiled an FTR with numerous carbon fiber details like the tank cover, the airbox, the seat cover and the front mudguard.
Due to the breath-taking performance and sporty soul, FTR owners are mostly reluctant to install personalized bags.
Ends Cuoio artisan took the challenge and designed a couple of bags for Indian FTR keeping in mind its sporty inclination.
The result is a success: Ends Cuoio followers and customers reacted amazingly well purchasing a large number of both models: Kiowa and Navajo.
The reason behind this success is that both Kiowa and Navajo are designed to crash the idea about FTR models not needing bags;the outcome of this hard work is products of absolute style and performance.
Let’s dive into these motorcycle bags details.
Kiowa is a vegetable tanned bull leather bag specifically designed for Indian FTR models. Its back panel is made of a leather lined iron plate that – beside providing the right amount of support at any time – allows a decent amount of loading room. The installation system is shaped to allow pillions to safely reach the passenger handlebar.
Kiowa design does not take led-room away therefore, rider and pillion can ride as safely & comfortably as possible. It can be ordered in many colors and with standard or quick buckles. In a few words: Kiowa is the perfect bag for FTR.
Navajo is handcrafted using vegetable tanned bull leather too. Ends Cuoio Centro Stile designed this swingarm bag to be balanced with the FTR silhouette. In factr, both the bag lines and anchoring points are shaped and placed in order to have Navajo following the lines of the FTR tail. The result is the most beautiful swingarm bag for FTR models.
Bikers who tried Kiowa and Navajo on their FTR are satisfied by the design and room
