American motorcycle company, Indian Motorcycles is set to be fully operational in Malaysia this coming May, as reported by Paultan.org.
The initial plan was to begin operations earlier but was hampered by the pandemic and the nation’s movement control order (MCO).
Nevertheless, Paultan.org reported that the first batch of bikes is set to arrive in the country next month comprising of six units of the Indian FTR, four units FTR Race and a selection of the Indian Scout.
Featuring a 1,203cc V-twin engine that punches out close to 125hp and 120Nm of torque, the FTR also features some cool modern features such as cruise control, dual disc Brembo ABS brakes, traction control, full LED lighting, 4.3” LED touchscreen dashboard (with Bluetooth & USB fast-charging port), lean-angle sensitive stability control, traction control, wheelie mitigation control, and many more.
In the UK, the Indian FTR 1200 is priced at GBP14,699 (RM82k), however, due to Malaysia’s import duties and taxes, we are looking probably around the RM100k-ish mark.
