Indian Motorcycles launched the 2015 version of their iconic Scout at the Sturgis motorcycle rally yesterday. It’s the first, all-new Scout for over 70 years.

The 1133cc, V-Twin weighs in at 253kg (wet) and according to Indian will provide a healthy 100bhp from the 60 degree, liquid-cooled engine.

Steve Menneto, VP of motorcycles for Polaris Industries said at the launch, “Over the course of 30 years of countless innovations, racing wins, world records and industry firsts, the Scout has earned its reputation as a versatile, multifaceted bike that appeals to just about every rider and every riding style, with superior handling, balance, performance and craftsmanship,”

“Our designers and engineers have taken that heritage and those characteristics and fused it into the 2015 Indian Scout, and we think just about everyone who rides this incredible bike is going to feel like it was built just for them.”

The bike will come in three colours; Thunder Black, Indian Motorcycle Red, Matte Silver Smoke and Matte Thunder Black Smoke.

The bike is expected to cost in the region of £10,000 when it is launched in the UK early next year – with it’s final, EU configuration being displayed at the Cologne, INTERMOT show in late September.
