Not surprisingly, I receive daily a flurry of emails , mostly technical questions, regarding the all-new 2015 Indian Scout. You want to know more about the engine and 6-speed transmission. So, let me summarize again the available info, followed by some CAD renderings that Indian Motorcycle graciously provided to me.
The 2015 Indian Scout is powered by an all-new, in-house designed and proprietary 69 cubic inch V-twin engine that combines all the design, power and reliability elements that made the original Scouts unbeatable and mates it with state-of-the-art components and modern technologies for smooth, flawless power throughout the power band:
– Liquid-cooled design for 100 HP of power, along with enhanced durability and reliability
– Out of respect for the legendary Scouts of the 1920s, 30s and 40s, the 2015 Scout carries forward classic engine design cues with purposeful styling that intends to honor both form and function
