Indian Motorcycle has stepped up its onboard tech game with the announcement that it will now offer Apple CarPlay for some of its bigger touring bikes. The integration of CarPlay will be available on the firm’s 2020 model year motorcycles equipped with the 7-inch Ride Command system, so iPhone-obsessed riders will be able to stay connected even when they’re out on the road.

2020 Indian FTR 1200 Rally

  2020 Indian FTR 1200 Rally In 2019, the Indian FTR 1200 Rally was only introduced to European markets, now, for 2020 the FTR Rally makes its way across the pond to North America. The 2020 Indian FTR 1200 Rally is a scrambler-styled machine that is built off of the original FTR 1200 foundation, but features the rally windscreen, taller handlebar, brown seat, and Titanium Smoke paint. Occasional light off-road duties breaking up some of your day-to-day riding could be had on this machine thanks to the Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires, taller ProTaper handlebar, and spoked rims. It is powered by a 1,203cc V-twin engine.

CarPlay will now be supported on the Chieftain, Roadmaster, and Challenger models with navigation, finally providing iPhone users easy access to their Apple Music and Maps, and allowing them to send messages with Siri and more via the Ride Command 7-inch screen and a supported (but not included) Bluetooth headset (Harley requires a similar setup with its Boom! Infotainment-equipped bikes). A big plus of CarPlay of course is its user-friendly interface, instantly recognizable to any iPhone user. The integration also increases global accessibility to navigation. Riders can download the update at https://bit.ly/CarPlayDownload or through a local dealership.

It has everything that we love about an American V-twin: the sound, the vibe, the look, and still sits comfortably at the top of that category in terms of handling and rideability.”Sign up here to receive our newsletters.

While they were at it, Indian made several other improvements to its Ride Command system, like improved navigation location management (which we’re happy to see after the last Challenger we rode), improved boot time, audio muting and control improvements (including navigation audio), widget fixes and a new fuel economy widget, and improved search functionality within navigation.
