Indian's 2016 Scout - A Closer Look

AUG 21, 2015 - The Indian Scout was first ridden out by Indian Motorcycles in 1920 and was widely considered as rivaling the company’s Chieftain model. Helping with that popularity, the 101 Scout built from 1928 to 1931, has been called the best motorcycle Indian ever made.

All these are accolades and enthusiasm Indian Motorcycles would like to see for its latest version of the Scout, also called 2016 Indian Scout with the addition of ABS to the name noting whether the model includes (surprise) ABS brakes.

This is the American motorcycle manufacturer’s middle-weight cruiser weighing in at a dry 558 pounds and as we mentioned, Indian hopes to tap into its decades-long legacy of superb balance, precise handling and potent performance that dominated the Wall of Death and conquered the Bonneville Salt Flats.

‘With its compact design and low 25.3-inch seat height, the Indian Scout is the perfect multipurpose bike for virtually any rider,’ Indian Motorcycles states in its press release.

The design of the Scout portrays a solid motorcycle with sharp but flowing lines giving it, as well as the other models featured in the 2016 lineup a distinctive look that reaches back Indians rich history but modern enough to set the manufacturer on a road into the future.

As mentioned earlier, the new Indian Scout is now available with anti-lock brakes (ABS), throw in the Indian Motorcycle Red paint and you have a price tag of $11,999. All 2016 Indian Scout models come with a genuine leather solo seat, and feature a cast aluminum chassis for superior handling and overall balance.
