The legend Indian Scout is back. The Indian Scout is well-known for its handling and versatility and was originally produced from 1920 to 1949. On August 2 at the 2014 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, the Indian Motorcycle has happily announced that the “contemporary yet classic interpretation of one of motorcycling’s most famous and coveted bikes,” is back for 2015.
The 2015 Indian Scout, an innovative and aesthetically stunning American cruiser, is the first all-new Scout in 70 years. It boasts advanced technologies and innovations, and has a clean-sheet design that has a wet weight of 558 pounds – lightest in its class, along with a classic “rigid triangle” design based on the original Scouts.
The all-new 2015 Indian Scout comes with a light and rigid cast aluminum frame to house an all-new liquid-cooled, 69 cubic inch, 1133cc V-twin engine, which is mated to a six-speed overdrive transmission and standard ABS. The engine comes with dual overhead cams with four valves per cylinder and has a total output of 100 Hp and 72 lb-ft of torque at 5900rpm. The cruiser also comes equipped with split dual exhaust with cross-over, full heat shields, as well as two O2 sensors on each bank.
The 2015 Indian Scout features a 25.3 inch seat heigh, 61.5 inch wheelbase and 5.3 inch ground clearance, delivering a 31 degrees of lean angle and low center of gravity. To make it look stunning, the Scout is fitted with a Desert Tan Genuine Leather solo bucket seat, and is offered in four color options: Thunder Black, Indian Motorcycle Red, Silver Smoke and Thunder Black Smoke.
The all-new 2015 Indian Scout is set to arrive at dealerships across North American in late 2014, with MSRP for the base model Scout is $10,999.
