Road-legal Indian FTR1200 confirmed for 2019

  • By cannonball

Indian are building a road-going version of their flat-track racer. It will make its show debut later this year and go on sale in 2019.

Speaking before the Wheels and Waves festival in Biarritz where the FTR1200 was confirmed, Indian CEO Steve Menneto said: “When we unveiled the Indian FTR1200 Custom at EICMA, we said we’d listen to feedback from riders around the world. The response has been overwhelming. We’re proud and excited to announce that we will put the FTR1200 into production.”

The FTR1200 Custom concept was a tribute to the Indian FTR750: a purpose-built race bike that, in the hands of the firm’s ‘Wrecking Crew’, has dominated the US flat-track season. Indian say the new bike will have some key differences.

First ride: Just what is Honda’s curious new CB1000R all about? 

  • By cannonball

Honda’s new £11,299 Honda CB1000R looks kind of strange. The Japanese firm call it a ‘Neo Sports Café’…no, me, neither.

Here at its world launch in Spain it doesn’t take long in saddle to realise that, like the estranged love child of a super naked and retro, the classy Honda is a subtle blend of both.

MotoGP: Marquez leaves it late to top test

  • By cannonball

Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) topped the one-day Official Test at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya with a late 1:38.919 despite a fall, with most of the grid back on track on Monday after the Grand Prix. Working on their own agendas as well as testing a new Michelin tyre, it was a busy day for many – not least of all the man on top.

Marquez, who put in almost ninety laps, took P1 from Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Andrea Iannone by a tenth late on, and had a machine in the box with a black livery – seemingly focused on aerodynamics, with the box closed to prying eyes for most of the day. Teammate Dani Pedrosa put in nearly 80 laps, and he was P7 despite a crash.

  • By cannonball

Michael Rutter smashed the TT Zero lap record to be the first rider to lap the mountain course in excess of 120mph in this afternoon’s race.

There was little competition for the veteran TT star, who charged to his sixth TT win with team-mate Lee Johnston having to pull up at the side of the road after his chain came off.
