Was thinking more along the lines of a Benjamin.

Shucks. They went too far from the Custom for me to be interested. Looks like a Vmax crossed with a Ducati or somefink. Claimed 489 lbs dry with 120 hp and a 60" wheelbase isn't exciting me either. I'm the exception that wanted something a lot closer to the Custom and a lot less practical.

In general this is probably a great step for Indian. The Cycle World article is generally positive other than front brake lever effort. I probably won't be getting one but it's nice to see something more performance oriented from Indian.

no doubt that hp number can be brought up a good bit with a tune and bolt ons though.

85 lbs ft of torque doesn't hurt.

That’s what I was thinking, Fitty. Maybe more useful for the riding I do.

Video from Indian here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMyeude1RCY

In summary, blah blah blah, wheelie at :50, blah blah blah, wheelie at 2:20, blah blah, smoky burnout at 2:45

All kidding aside, the 1200's motor has new cases and a new top end. It clearly is not a warmed over Scout engine. Polaris / Indian did the work on the engine, and that in itself is cool! It will be interesting to see how it stacks up against others. Performance oriented naked bikes in a variety of flavors are seemingly where it is at these days. One has to love that.

Cycle World has a first ride review on it. Only thing I read as negative was high leverage front brakes. Meaning ya gotta squeeeeeze those mothers to actually stop. I reckon a Brembo MC and steel lines would probably fix that. Maybe some M50 Brembo calipers.........and a nice exhaust.......and a flash..........and ..............I cant leave nothing alone. Quick, someone buy one so I can help you trick it out. (Spend all your money)

Yeah the pressure is engineered to give the proper feel for the demographic, and the predicted purpose of the bike.
Just like the MT10, the pads needed swapping immediately for sporty riding. They required more pressure than what most sport riders were used to or preferred. Some even went further and added a Brembo RCS 19 master cyl which gave even more pressure.

Some of this also has to do with stock tires. If you put on stickier rubber, you can add more bite with either pads or a larger plunger master cyl. Cheaper than doing calipers and/or rotors.
