9. Indian Scout 60


So impressed were we with the first Indian Scout we named it our 2015 Motorcycle of the Year. For 2016, Indian is following up the success of the Scout with the more affordably priced Scout 60. What’s the difference between the two? For $2300 less ($8,999 vs $11,299) the Scout 60 comes with one less gear (five vs six) and 134 fewer cubic centimeters (999cc vs 1133cc). It doesn’t appear to us you’re sacrificing much to save $2k. “Personally, I feel like five speeds is plenty for a cruiser, really. Who wants to be shifting extra gears when they’re cruising relaxationally along feeling all Lee Marvin,” says Burns in his First Ride Review of the Indian Scout 60.
