Indian Motorcycle Launches the Badass Scout Bobber (12 Photos)

Indian Motorcycle has just launched the new Indian Scout Bobber. Based on the standard Indian Scout, the Scout Bobber gets a muscular, stripped-down look with nobby tires, chopped fenders, a molded leather seat. The Scout Bobber will be available in September. The color selections of Bronze Smoke, Indian Motorcycle Red, Star Silver Smoke, Thunder Black, and Thunder Black Smoke reflect the Scout Bobber’s badass vibe.

Stripped-down and blacked out, the Scout Bobber lends a minimalistic approach to aggressive street style. The badge on the fuel tank is all-new with bold block letters, the headlight gets a little shroud, and there are new engine covers, and smaller bar-end mirrors to give the bike more of a hard-edged look. The original Scout’s handlebar has been swapped for a new tracker-style handlebar and the footpeg position has been changed to make it tighter to make for a more streamlined riding profile.

The engine, gearing and brakes all remain the same, but the riding position and suspension has been modified somewhat to give the Scout Bobber a different riding feel. The Scout Bobber is powered by the same 1131 cc, v-twin engine with peak power of 100 bhp and 97.7 Nm of torque and with a six-speed transmission.

At a retail price of $11,499, you better head down to your Indian dealer now to get your order in now.
