Indian have unveiled the Scout Bobber Twenty and the Scout 100th Anniversary to celebrate the centenary milestone of the iconic American cruiser.
Alongside the announcement of the two new models, Indian also released a selection of touring accessories in case you have plans outside the city centre. Read on for the full low down.
Scout Bobber Twenty
The first, and arguably most important of the two models, is the Bobber Twenty that pays homage to the original 1920 machine. The Bobber Twenty takes the same 1133cc 94bhp water cooled v-twin as the standard Bobber, as well as the same low down chassis, and combines it with a bit of retro style.
That means its got wire spoked wheels, a ‘floating’ bobber seat, ape hanger bars plus all the usual smattering of chrome. There’s three finishes: Black, Green and Red with Red being the obvious pick.
Also revealed: Scout 100th Anniversary
As well as the Bobber Twenty, which is a full production model, Indian are also producing a special edition version of the Scout based on the original 1920s machine. Catchily named the Scout 100th Anniversary it also uses the standard Scout engine and frame, but the livery is a rather delightful classic red with gold trim, all set off by a set of 100th anniversary badges.
It also comes with black wire wheels, a ‘desert tan’ leather saddle, beach bars and luggage rack. As it’s a special edition, Indian are producing just 750 of the models worldwide.
As well as the two new models, the standard Scout and Scout Bobber has received a handful of updates including new brake calipers, floating rotors and master cylinders for improved stopping. The Bobber will now be shod with Pirelli MT60RS tyres, while the Scout gets a new seat and pillion pegs. There’s loads of new colours (far too many to list), so if you really want to see them all head to the Indian website.
As well as the bike changes, they’ve added a fairly comprehensive list of touring accessories. This includes a quick release screen, luggage rack, rack bag and semi-rigid panniers. There’s no prices or release dates announced just yet, so stay tuned for more info.
