Indian Breaks Out a Scout Bobber


Over the weekend, Indian Motorcycle announced the new Scout Bobber -- a revised Indian Scout with no changes to the 69 cubic inch engine, but lots of styling adjustments to fit the "bobber" title.

While some builders and OEMs might chop fenders and put on a solo seat and call the end result a "bobber," Indian took their version a few steps further.

Besides the requisite reduction in fender size, the Indian Scout Bobber has tracker handlebars, pegs that are 1.5” closer to the rider, knobby tires and blacked-out wheels and a 1” lowered rear suspension for a lower profile than its less aggressive cousin.

There's also a black headlight nacelle, minimal engine covers, bar-end mirrors and vented exhaust shields. The gauge face has been blacked out, and black exhaust adds to the edgier styling.

While this variation of the Scout Bobber has no performance upgrades, the look alone might make you feel like there are.

Indian Motorcycle said the Scout Bobber will be available in dealers in the U.S. and Canada this September with a price range of USD$11,499 to $12,499. Whet your appetite with more pics below.
