Indian Motorcycle Unveils The Smaller Displacement Scout Sixty. The Most Powerful Motorcycle In Its Class. Only $8,999.00.

01Scout-Sixty02Scout-Sixty03Scout-SixtyThere is no doubt that all over the world there is a rich appetite for dynamic, smaller displacement bikes. The Scout Sixty joins the Indian Scout family with sixty cubic inches of displacement, the most powerful in its class with a peak 78 hp and 65 ft/lbs of torque in North America and offered at the very attractive price of US $8,999. European models come with 78 hp and 89 Nm of torque and includes Anti-Lock Brakes. Starting MSRP in Europe is €11,590.

04Scout-Sixty05Scout-SixtyThe Scout Sixty is stylishly blacked out aluminum frame and swingarm, as well as a black seat and gloss black cast wheels. Featuring a linear powerband that works for many skill levels the Scout® Sixty’s smaller displacement and 5-speed transmission make for easy access to its power in the city or cruising the highway. The newest Scout® Sixty model carries over the highly complimented chassis, suspension and braking components from the Scout Series.

06Scout-Sixty07Scout-SixtyAs Indian Motorcycle® continues to grow, the addition of this Sixty model to the Scout® family gives even more riders a chance to throw a leg over a premium brand with a legendary past. Since its launch during the 2014 Sturgis on the Wall of Death, The Scout has been a show-stopper with consumers and press alike, being named Cruiser of the Year and winning multiple bike shootouts. As you see it each week in my website the industry of pro custom builders, of dealers and of aftermarket part vendors have fully embraced the Scout® platform. One of the reasons is that the Scout® models are designed for easy customization, offering individuals and professionals unlimited possibilities for personalization.

08Scout-SixtyAdding the Scout® Sixty to the lineup this year is a testament to the skill of our engineers and shows our commitment to the success of our brand. By adding dealers in every major North American market, we are firmly establishing ourselves as a leading brand of today. And our future is even brighter thanks to continued investment into cutting-edge production capabilities that ensure these highly sought-after motorcycles will be available to enthusiasts as more riders choose to ride America’s First Motorcycle” said Steve Menneto, President Of Indian Motorcycle.

09Scout-Sixty10Scout-SixtyMenneto also announced the return of Indian to flat-track racing. With a sponsorship for the Hooligan class at the AMA Grand Finale in Las Vegas on November 21st, Indian will be debuting several Scout® Sixty models customized by Roland Sands. Built specifically to race, these hooligans should put Indian Motorcycle® back on the winner’s podium. “Each hooligan captures the Scout’s soul and shows how easy it is to customize a light, aggressive machine ready to hustle the streets or dominate the track” added Menneto.

The low center of gravity and lowest seat height of 25.3” let the Scout® Sixty feel comfortable and planted on urban commutes, but also allows for excellent handling with best in class lean angle even if pushing the bike hard on a weekend ride through the canyons. Colors & MSRP. Thunder Black US $8999. India Red US $9299 Pearl White US $9299.

A complete line of custom accessories including fit-kit seats, foot peg locators and handlebars are designed to tailor the motorcycle to the rider. Riders can customize the Scout® and Scout® Sixty with additional accessories including wire wheels, Stage 1 exhaust systems, mini-apes, performance shock absorbers, and the 1920 Solo Saddle.

    the perfect weapon to erase the Street XG 🙂 I have actually one at my workshop and this “thing” made half in USA and half in india is just a shame . If i had to choose : i will buy the Indian ( even if i am completely NOT fan about the “square” design )

  2. 2 Boomer Nov 18th, 2015 at 7:08 am

    So if I understand this right; this is the original Scout except it’s a 61″ instead of a 69″, has 5 gears instead of 6, has a higher compression, and is a slight bit ‘heavier’ than its bigger brother. Okay. I’m sure this will appeal to new riders especially since it shaves $2k off the price of the bigger displacement model.

  3. 3 Sportster Mike Nov 18th, 2015 at 8:31 am

    Why is it heavier? Surely not that much metal now its a smaller hole for the piston?
    and just for us Europeans what IS sixty cubic inches in cc’s?

  4. 4 NoH2oh Nov 18th, 2015 at 8:36 am

    $8999. That should move a lot of units.

  5. 5 Dean Keemer Nov 18th, 2015 at 8:43 am

    Will sell very well. Watch out Harley!

  6. 6 Mdkuder Nov 18th, 2015 at 8:47 am

    Should sell good and a way better deal IMO than the Yamaha Bolt, H-D Street or Sportsters, Kawasaki Vulcan S models.

  7. 7 Calif Phil Nov 18th, 2015 at 8:55 am

    Indian is on a roll. Great job Indian. Why would anyone buy a 900 cc YamHondaSaki when they have this offering from Indian.

  8. 8 Riverrock Nov 18th, 2015 at 8:56 am

    60 cubic inches is a whopping 983 cc’s. Ah, let’s just round it up to a nice sounding 1000 cc’s.

  9. 9 David King Nov 18th, 2015 at 9:17 am

    I’m no expert, but I believe this will be a game changer. Fascinating. And, priced right. This competition will serve all riders very well, regardless of your brand of preference. Congrats to Indian.

  10. 10 Shanedrive Nov 18th, 2015 at 10:09 am

    The 60 inch/983 cc’s keeps the bike out of the heavy weight class.

  11. 11 Mike Nov 18th, 2015 at 10:11 am

    No abs in US Models?

  12. 12 Matt W. Nov 18th, 2015 at 10:45 am

    WOW! With that package and price Polaris is not only aggressively competing with domestic competition but metric as well!

  13. 13 Dirtroaddenny Nov 18th, 2015 at 11:36 am

    This is not going to help HD sell more Streets.

  15. 15 Freddyknuckles Nov 18th, 2015 at 1:26 pm

    Riverrock, the fact is the engine is a full 999cc a they actually rounded DOWN to make it 60ci. instead of 60.96ci that it really is.

  16. 16 1550tc Nov 18th, 2015 at 1:39 pm

    This is not going to help HD sell more Streets. lol

    i didnt know they were selling any ……….one dealer said he sold one to Polaris for teardown

    no body is buying those 750 …………..their PURE SHIT

  17. 17 Doc Robinson Nov 18th, 2015 at 3:55 pm

    Sales of the Street 500 are booming in Australia. The dealers can’t get enough of them. Down Under they classify as a learner machine, which encompasses two years of riding a m/cycle in this class. The Street 750 is not going to be imported into Australia and as many of you will know, you cannot convert a Street 500 into a 750 in the manner you can convert a Sportster 883 into a 1200. It can’t be done.

  18. 18 John Dove Nov 18th, 2015 at 5:14 pm

    Keeping it under 1000cc’s means that it can be imported for substantially less than is big brother or other bikes in the Indian Lineup. That may be why it was unvieled in Europe.
    Regardless, I like what Indian is doing!!

  19. 19 Sheridan Nov 18th, 2015 at 10:46 pm

    So they’ve shaved only 134cc’s off the capacity of the existing Scout. That doesn’t really seem like enough of a capacity difference to really justify the effort, or place it in a different class of competitors? But if it allows them to lower the entry price into the brand, that can only be a good thing and help drive more sales from competitors. Good luck to Indian.

  20. 20 morpion Nov 19th, 2015 at 10:01 am

    another engine made by KTM,,,,,,,,,,,

  21. 21 VRat Nov 19th, 2015 at 12:03 pm

    Morpion, I do not believe these motors have anything to do with KTM. Polaris uses the KTM motor in their Outlaw but I believe this is a home grown motor just like all the Vic and Indian motors. If you have facts that this is not true, were listening.

  22. 22 cafesportytc Nov 19th, 2015 at 12:33 pm

    Doc, technically it could, the only thing that changes is the Crank/Cylinders and cam profiles

  23. 23 Domino Nov 19th, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    Indian just killed the HD Street and severely injured the HD Sportster.

  24. 24 Boris Nov 19th, 2015 at 8:53 pm

    Since the Scout 60″ and 69″ models are so close in displacement, I look for a jump in cubic inches to about 77″ for the “big” Scout for 2017.

  25. 25 Blackmax Nov 20th, 2015 at 5:34 pm

    Oh Boy !!!
    Let’s just go after everything they’ve got !!!!
    Kiss the damn Street bikes Good-Bye & they had the Sportster beat already
    now they’re coming out with an entry-level…
    The new Triumphs, Star Bolt , even stuff from Moto-Guzzi and now this
    This is a wonderful time to be a young rider, looking for a new bike.
    H-D better get their act together or else, keep losing market share
