Indian on the Scout

19.08.2014

FRESH on the heels of announcing the return of the Indian Roadmaster for 2015, Indian Motorcycle unveiled the all-new 2015 Indian Scout.

The Scout features an all-new proprietary liquid-cooled 1 131cc motor. The Indian Scout will be available in South Africa from the beginning of 2015.

Weighing in at a wet weight of 253kg – lightest in its class – the 2015 Indian Scout offers a chassis design featuring a lightweight and rigid cast aluminium frame, coupled with a low 635mm seat-height for exceptional comfort, balance and manoeuvrability. Its low seat-height, low centre of gravity, manoeuvrability and lightweight, compact design, makes the Scout appealing to riders of all sizes and experience levels, while the high horsepower makes it a bike that will thrill even the most experienced riders.

This is the first truly new Indian Scout in more than 70 years, marking the return of the legendary bikes that conquered the infamous “Wall of Death” and carried the legendary “Indian Wrecking Crew” motorcycle race team to multiple victories. Technology and designs derived from Scout models played a significant role for allied forces during WW2 and a 1920 Indian Scout earned the title, “World’s Fastest Indian,” as proven by Burt Munro in 1967.

The look of a classic “rigid triangle” design - synonymous with original Scouts - coupled with a set of premium coil-over-monotube rear shocks, deliver exceptional ride, handling and comfort.

The 2015 Indian Scout is powered by an all-new, in-house designed, proprietary 1 131cc twin engine that combines all the design, power and reliability elements that made the original Scouts unbeatable, and mates it with state-of-the-art components and modern technologies.

The 2015 Indian Scout is available for pre-ordering and is available in thunder black, Indian motorcycle red, silver smoke (matte finish) and thunder black smoke (matte finish).

Price to be announced soon.
