New 2018 Indian Scout Bobber
Indian Scout Bobber...
The 3rd model of the Indian Scout line-up will be available at US dealerships in September and before year end 2017 in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East, Africa.) The new Scout Bobber will have a US retail price starting at $11,499, (so I'd guess anywhere around £12,000+ here in the UK with the current post Brexit vote crap exchange rate) about $2500 less than the Harley Street Bob.
In the US the 18 to 35 year old Millennials have now surpassed BabyBoomers in numbers to become the largest generation pool in the US . Indian's view is these may fall in love with this type of “Bobber Riding.” as it’s exactly the opposite of the cumbersome, over–accessorised, over-chromed, over-painted touring bikes of their parents.
Well, I'm one of the latter, but believe me I think they've nailed this model. & I for one will be test riding it ASAP !!
The Indian Motorcycle’s Industrial Design team has taken the Scout model even further forward, developing a production Bobber that can be bought direct from an Indian dealer. The 3rd and newest member of the Scout family pays homage to the mean, stripped-down builds of America’s post-war past. The Scout Bobber is a minimalist approach to aggressive street style. The emphasis is on the dark side, including blacked-out wheels and exhaust pipes but the Scout Bobber will come in five colours.
– Drop down bar-end mirrors
– Slotted exhaust.
– Rear LED lights have integrated stop, turn and tail signals fir visual simplification.
– New Bobber leather seat adding to the aggressive look.
– Stripped-down and blacked-out, the Scout Bobber is a minimalist approach to aggressive street style.
– Cartridge fork front suspension for a smooth, controlled ride that connects the rider with the road.
– A 100 horsepower liquid-cooled V-Twin makes the Scout Bobber quick off the line.
– Slammed rear end and low-slung profile to deliver unfiltered feedback from every inch of blacktop.
– An aggressive rider position pays homage to the mean, stripped-down builds of America’s post-war past.
– Bobber-style chopped fenders and side-mounted license plate.
– Tracker handlebars and foot pegs have been moved closer to the rider, resulting in a more aggressive riding position,
– An all-new Indian tank badge with bold block letters.
