Indian Motorcycles has unveiled the new Scout Bobber. This motorcycle is based on the regular Indian Scout that retails for Rs 12.99 lakh ex-showroom in India. The bobber, however, will demand a slight premium when it arrives in India in a couple of weeks. The Indian Motorcycle’s business in India is managed by Polaris group that specialises in All-terrain vehicles. Polaris was in the news earlier this year for shutting down Victory Motorcycle Brand.
Following the bobber theme, the Indian Scout Bobber features chopped fender and rear mudguard, wider Knobby tyres, and minimalistic design. The chrome finish of the standard Scout is replaced by blacked out parts for the Scout Bobber. Other unique elements include bar-end mirrors, single saddle, and new badging.
Indian Scout Bobber is powered by 1,113cc 69 cubic-inch V-Twin engine that makes 100PS of power and 98Nm of torque. The gearbox is six-speed cassette type unit. The rear suspension travel of the Scout Boober is shortened to lower the motorcycle by 45mm for stanced appearance. The front forks are also modified with new internal cartridges. The seating position is also different than the standard Scout with street tracker style handlebars for better flickability.
The braking components include single 294mm disc brake at the front and rear. The front calliper is a two-piston type and rear one is single piston calliper. The ABS is offered as an option for the US market but it’s expected to be standard for India.
The Indian Scout Bobber will come to India via CBU route (completely built unit). We are expecting it to be priced at around Rs 13.5 lakhs ex-showroom. This motorcycle will compete with motorcycles like Triumph Bonneville Bobber, Harley Davidson Forty-Eight, and Harley Davidson Street Bob.
