Let’s say you like the Indian Scout Sixty. It’s really not that hard of a stretch, considering its 78 hp, 999cc V-Twin is a bit more manageable than the big boy 1133cc Twin, and it comes in at a really respectable $8,999. But what if you’re the type who thinks there’s just something missing with the Scout Sixty; maybe there’s not enough black.
Well, worry not, as today Indian has announced the introduction of its latest model, the Scout Bobber Sixty. Taking the Scout Sixty as a starting platform and going full-black with it, the Scout Bobber Sixty is as elemental as they come. Best of all, it comes in at $8,999 – same as the Scout Sixty – for budget-conscious riders looking to join the Indian Motorcycles family.
Taking the Scout Sixty as the base, the Scout Bobber Sixty features a blacked-out engine, a modern tank badge, perch mount mirrors, stripped-down headlight, an all-black seat, and all-new five-spoke all-black wheels.
More Bobber styling includes the chopped front and rear fenders, slammed rear suspension, and all-new street tires. LED rear signals integrate stop, turn and taillights, and there’s also a side-mounted license plate. A black gauge face on the instrument panel completes the look.
While most of the bike is similar to the Scout Sixty, there are a few ergonomic tweaks. The Scout Bobber Sixty’s footpegs are moved 1.5 inches closer to the rider, and tracker handlebars move the rider’s torso forward slightly.
The Scout Bobber Sixty is available in Thunder Black and Thunder Black Smoke paint with ABS and non-ABS versions.
