Solo Saddle Seat For New Indian Scout

Scoutsoloseat1For many, the new Scout is and will remain a solo seat bike and wish a custom bolt-on version inspired by the past. This “1920 Solo Saddle Seat” is a genuine new part from Indian Motorcycle. It is currently in production and should be available in October. Want to be one of the first to install one? You can already reserve yours online at Indian Scout Accessories.

    Stupid and unnecessary. Serves no purpose at all. The Scout already comes with a solos seat.

    Not off the rear fender. More choice. ..But I don’t like it.

    Very weird the way it is mounted.

    Gives it a Conquest Customs look.

    As a standalone part it may not be all that and a bag of chips but combined with other mods; it could make all the difference.

    It’s like the seat on their wall of death bike, what’s wrong with that?

    Bwaaa haa haa, sitting on a giant tongue must be the look they were going for.

    I would like it if it were hinged at the front and sprung like the old solo seats were.

    Looks fairly awkward on the bike. Maybe they could make a small matching Indian leather roll bag/tube container to fill in the oddly open negative space between the seat and frame.

    With no support in the back looks like you’re riding on a single mount point, like a bicycle, with the force at the front. Comfortable?

    Soon to be offered on the Close-out Special Sale Items table.

    @Seymour yeah, you’re right. Like the old saying goes, if you don’t have anything good to say…In hindsight, I should’ve just held my tongue.

    .. don’t understand the sudden Indian bashing here.. this Scout is the ultimate American bike right now you better get on board and don’t make a fool of yourself.

    $380 seems a little over priced

    Reading a review of the seat on the Indian forum the riding position moves up higher and creates a less cruiser seating position and a more standard riding position especially combined with rear set pegs. Which may or may not be of interest to those with opinions already firmly in place.

    Pinhead, are you addressing the cost concern to alert people who would spend four digits on exhausts and hundreds on master cylinders that have scrimshaw whittled into them? I don’t think that folks who spare no expense or utility to mount speakers are going to be put off by a few Benjamins for a seat. Those people however may not be the target market for the Scout.

    I don’t know that the Scout is the ultimate anything but it is a new American core for building. At it’s price point it’s going to get plenty of builds. The worst I have to say about that seat is it comes out of the factory. Where is the aftermarket? Here’s a comparatively inexpensive American platform that is selling to the young bloods. Get after it.

    Cool story Pop, I still think it’s ugly and overpriced.

    I think both Saddlemen & Mustang have seats for the Scout
    Personally, I think it looks painful !!!
    LOL !!!!
