I'll look into what tire sizes people are putting on the FTRs. I would imagine, like from any brand, the OE tires are junk. The tread pattern looks cool, but not necessary for street duty.


I don't know what to think about those tires. Specs say they are Dunlop DT3 (which is a current flat track tire). See: https://www.dunlopmo...lat-track-tire/

The Indian front is 19", but the rear is 18". Soooo...?

True! Though sliding a big-ass bike through street corners makes me a bit nervous hahaha

He'd call most of us pussies.

As far as the big street bikes are concerned, it's really a matter of which fits you and which features you want. The KTM 890 supposedly has the full suite of traction control & features, although knowing KTM they might not all work at the same time (joke-sort of).

Sounds like the 890 comes with all the goodies, but it costs money to unlock them. Or maybe it's just the Track Pack that is preloaded and unlocked by cash, and the others are add-ons?

$339 will unlock the Track Pack
$399 for the Quickshifter+
$249 for the optional cruise control

For real.

Did KTM do their demo day at DCTC last year?? Who puts that on? I want to sign up for their newsletters so I don't miss it if they host another one.

If you find out about a demo day let me know! I keep thinking of changing up the 1290.

That bike looks so nice. I would be looking at the "S" model in black. Or should I say "Titanium Metallic over Thunder Black Pearl" LOL

I'll let you know if I get wind of a demo day. Why are you thinking of trading in the 1290?
