The Indian Scout Bobber Sixty has debuted, offering buyers a smaller bike that comes in at a lower price tag.
The Scout Bobber has been in Indian’s lineup for a couple of years now, offering a slightly trimmed-down take on the Scout roadster, with solo seat and some of the bodywork cut away. It’s powered by Indian’s liquid-cooled 1200 cc 60-degree V-twin, and pricing starts at $10,999 in the US.
The Scout Bobber Sixty is basically the same bike, but it’s got a smaller engine (capacity has been reduced to 999 cc), and it’s only available in black. The base model Scout Bobber Sixty only comes in Thunder Black, with no ABS. Its MSRP is $8,999. You can buy an ABS-equipped version of the Scout for $9,799 in Thunder Black, or $10,299 for Thunder Black Smoke paint. Generally, the machine has a blacked-out finish, not the fancy paint and chrome that typifies the Indian lineup.
The Sixty is about 24 pounds lighter than the standard Scout model, with a 548-pound curb weight. Seat height is 25.6 inches.. It’s rated for 78 horsepower, and 65 lb-ft of torque. Those might sound a little low when compared to the big-dollar baggers on the market, but they’re pretty good numbers when compared to the machines that traditionally sit in this 1000 cc cruiser market (Sportster, Virago, Bolt, Intruder, etc.). The gearbox is a five-speed, which sounds a bit dated, but will get the job done.
Indian’s already got an extensive accessory catalogue, claiming more than 140 bits that will bolt onto the Scout Bobber Sixty. For more photos and information, including a full spec sheet, you can visit Indian’s website.
