Indian Motorcycle unveils two new Scout Bobber bikes to mark centenary

To mark this momentous occasion, Indian Motorcycle has released the Scout Bobber Twenty & Scout 100th Anniversary, along with touring accessories to match.

Indian Motorcycles seem to have been around forever - 118 years to be exact - and despite filing for bankruptcy in 2003, the company has managed to dust itself off and continue producing cool looking, quality motorcycles.

Recently Indian’s flagship motorcycle, the Scout, celebrated its 100th birthday. So, what better way to celebrate such a milestone than to release a modern Scout Bobber Twenty and special edition Scout Anniversary - both of which pay their respects to the original 1920’s machine. 

The Stripped back Bobber Twenty with its low down chassis, ‘floating’ seat, wire spoked wheels, and ape hanger bars gives the bike a retro aesthetic, but it has the same 1133cc 94bhp water-cooled v-twin as the modern 2019/20 Bobber.  

Other modern touches to entire 2020 Scout range include upgraded front callipers, floating discs and a new master cylinder. With the new and improved braking system comes a new set of rubber, in the form of Pirelli MT60RS tires which should make the Scout’s more fun and responsive to ride. 

The 100th anniversary Scout sees all these upgraded, and shares the same motor and frame, but is treated with a classic red livery and gold trim. Plus, for good measure, a few 100th-anniversary badges were added so you can point instead of telling people what model it is…   

It comes equipt with black wire wheels, a ‘desert tan’ leather saddle, luggage rack and beach bars. Indian will only be producing 750 of these models worldwide, so if you're keen you better act fast. 

Both bikes come with a vast array of touring accessories if your heart desires and the 2020 Scout range is available in plenty of different colours.
