100th Anniversary Indian Scout, Scout Bobber Twenty Confirmed in CARB Filing

A new executive order published by the California Air Resources Board confirms two new 2020 models celebrating the 100 years of the Indian Scout. The CARB document certifies a new Indian Scout 100th Anniversary model as well as a new Indian Scout Bobber Twenty.

Photos of the 100th anniversary Scout have already leaked online from Polaris’ dealer meeting last month (which also confirmed the 2020 Indian Challenger). The photos show the Scout wearing the classic red with yellow pinstriping and wire-spoke wheels instead of the Scout’s usual cast wheels. Other details include a floating seat and 100th anniversary badging.

We haven’t seen any images of the Scout Bobber Twenty yet, but we assume it will be another anniversary edition (as in nineteen twenty). Both new models were certified with the regular Scout’s 1133cc V-Twin engine, along with Stage 1 intake and two-into-one upgrades.

Oddly, the 1000cc Scout Sixty appears to have been left out of the centennial festivities, with no anniversary edition certified, just the base model plus intake and exhaust upgrades.

We expect Indian to announce the anniversary edition Scouts and the Challenger along with the rest of its 2020 lineup in the next few weeks. Check back here at Motorcycle.com for the latest.

    Compare the relaxed, ergonomic riding position of the original to the clam shell toes-meet-fingers-feet-forward riding position of the new Scout.

      Dan Gurney would disagree with you, and has the motorcycle to prove it!

    So it’s the 100 year anniversary of the Scout or the Scout name ? I’m guessing the name since they are missing a few years ,
