Thank you for having this forum really appreciated. Just got mine just at the beginning of starting to play with speccing it. I have had Japanese bikes all my life so this is a huge step to me but I have never looked at a bike and loved it so much.......

I took it out for the first time yesterday and so many strangers came up to me and wanted to talk was mad.....

Same place as More Speed. I presume that's where you bought the bike?

Welcome.
Yes I'm really fortunate it's a couple of miles from me. But unfortunate that I can see my bank account getting smashed as their Indian shop is full of temptation. 😇

Yep fair one cheers 😉 I am the target market !!! When I bought the bike I caned £600 of extra before it left the showroom.

However the new carbon seat looks the biz and is well comfortable.....

I have a carbon seat paid for and on order but delivery times are not until January at this stage. I’ve fired off an email asking if that was still the case but haven’t heard back yet…👍😎

Glad you’re close to that shop as people seem to really like their work!
It’s interesting to me to see the bike be as popular as it is outside of North America. One of the deciding factors to me was it’s made in the USA and even though I could have bought more power for the money this is just such a fun bike with looks to spare.

What was the thing that made you buy yours?

Different reasons I guess.... my biking needs changed. I used to commute so needed a work horse bike now I just need a bike to have fun with.

Where I live in the UK is a beautiful biking area.

My last bike I bought a Tracer GT brand new I kinda thought do I need all this power ? Do I need all the gizmos? Then destiny did its thing and it was killed after 4 months from new 🤔🤭😁

The FTR power distribution suited me I don't need lightning fast but enough to have fun.

Like most people I have had many bikes but I can honestly say I have never loved a bike like the FTR and man the attention and questions you get wherever you go..........its absolute beauty and design normally is the domain of the Italians....😍
