While U.S. sales of motorcycles have been trending down in recent years, America’s oldest bike brand has introduced a model that could attract more new riders.
The Indian Scout Bobber Sixty is a slightly paired down version of the venerated Scout Bobber that’s aimed at inexperienced riders. That’s not to say that its 60-degree V-Twin is under-powered—the engine is capable of cranking out 78 horses through a five-speed constant-mesh manual transmission, which makes for plenty of get-up in a machine that weighs just over 470 pounds.
Indian Scout Bobber Specs
Elements of the full-size Scout Bobber’s stripped-down street style are shared with the Sixty, including the slammed rear suspension, chopped front and rear fenders and LED turn signals. But the Sixty is distinguished by a sinister murdered-out finish on the exhaust, frame, handlebars, mirrors, clutch covers, and all-new five-spoke cast aluminum wheels.
In comparison to the Scout Bobber, the Sixty’s foot pegs are also moved 1.5 inches closer to the rider, which, in combination with tracker handlebars, move the rider’s torso forward for a more aggressive position. A minimalist engine badge and headlight, side-mounted license plate and perch mirrors also keep the profile clean.
Featured options include an upgraded exhaust and muffler that increase horsepower by 10 percent and deliver a deeper growl, as well as a color-matched passenger seat for those who want to ride two-up.
