2018 Indian Scout Bobber: FIRST LOOK
Indian has taken the wraps off the new Scout Bobber, a new interpretation of the revamped Scout that was released in 2015.
The Bobber is all about minimalistic style, with touches of drag and flat tracker worked into a design that sports none of the accessories that have made Indian an instant force in the highly competitive Touring segment.
Starting from $11,499 to $12,499, the Bobber packs 100 horsepower and 72 lb-ft of torque from the 69 cu in V-twin found in the base model Scout, but it’s the chassis and styling that grabs the attention.
The Scout Bobber’s rear suspension is lowered one inch, the footpegs mounted 1.5 inches rearward and the tracker-style bars closer to the rider, giving the Bobber a much more aggressive riding stance than the base model Scout. Black is a common color theme with the Bobber with everything from the exhaust, frame, handlebars, mirrors, turn signals, cast aluminum wheels, primary and clutch covers are all blacked-out.
The Bobber rolls on 16-inch knobby tires and there’s a large range of accessories to go with it, including a Stage 1 exhaust system, performance intake, solo rack pack and saddlebag, and a passenger seat with a small built-in sissy bar. CN
