Indian Scout Sixty on the way from $17,995 ride away
Indian Motorcycle today introduced the latest addition to its 2016 lineup – the all-new Indian Scout Sixty.
The new Indian Scout Sixty offers many of the same features and components of the award-winning Indian Scout, which was introduced in 2014 at the Black Hills Rally.
The new Scout Sixty shares the identical chassis, suspension, brakes and core engine – all mated to a smaller 999cc engine, downsized from the 1133cc of the regular Scout. The Scout Sixty also offers one less cog, it’s five speed box sporting the same ratio as the full size Scout’s six-speeder, and the lower four ratios have also been changed to more suit the five-speed layout in the Scout Sixty.
Still delivering a handy 88Nm of linear torque, down from the 97.7Nm of the 1133cc Scout, the Scout Sixty will be priced from $17,995 ride away, an $800 saving on the larger engined Scout.
Offered in three colours, Thunder Black, Indian Motorcycle Red or Pearl White, the Scout Sixty features a black seat, matching black frame and wheels, and is compatible with the over 200 accessories already available for the Scout.
“The Indian Scout has been a stunningly successful introduction for us, with balance, performance and manoeuvrability that appeals to riders here in America and around the globe,” said Steve Menneto, President of Motorcycles for Polaris Industries. “The new Scout Sixty expands that reach even further to include newer riders who desire the legendary quality and craftsmanship of an Indian motorcycle.”
A seat height of just 643mm allows for sure-footed comfort at stops, and the low centre of gravity ensures agile cornering, precise balance and overall rider confidence and control.
A series of accessories including seats, handlebars and footpeg relocators allow the motorcycle to be tailored to fit each rider, while additional accessories such as saddlebags, wire wheels and quick-release windscreens give owners virtually unlimited freedom to customise their rides.
The new Scout Sixty is not shy on performance, with Roland Sands Designs getting the nod as the first to customise the new model. Sands customised five new motorcycles to race prep them for battle in the street bike-based class for the “Super Hooligan” class at the Superprestigio of the Americas, slated for November 21 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. The new Scout Sixty is already en route to dealerships around the world, and is sure to be a popular platform for customising and personalising.
“We expect the Scout Sixty to accelerate the already unprecedented success we have had with the new Scout platform,” said Peter Harvey – Australian Country Manager, Motorcycles.
