    Indian marketing department: “do what Harley Davidson did”.

    If I can pair my bluetooth headset with this, then you have a winner here.

    HD just needs to do a firmware update to unlock this feature so I dont have to use their proprietary headset. That is what everyone has been complaining about and HD isnt doing anything about it.

    A lighter Scout – somebody is thinking. I like – but still thinks it needs proper USD forks upfront…

    Although I’m not a big fan of some of the new color schemes I am impressed by the new Indian infotainment system! Making the screen bigger and at the top of the dashboard is a smart design since you won’t have to take your eye or focus off the road as much to glance at it. And making it a touch screen with two finger manipulation makes it more intuitive to use. I could see some current Polaris/Indian owners trading up to a 2017 just for this feature alone. My only suggestion at this point though is that it have a night time dimmer or color mode like many smartphones do.

    Rushmore Indians ?

  6. 6 JohnnySpeed Jul 27th, 2016 at 6:46 am

    Good god those bikes are hideous. Polaris has great engineers and the absolute worst designers.

  7. 7 David Quarterman Jul 27th, 2016 at 7:53 am

    Don’t like the nacelle on the Dark Horse and Chief Classic front lamp – too big and ugly. Looks clumsy. The rest aren’t too bad and the pricing on the Scout Sixty is going to tempt a lot of potential H-D Street customers, especially with it’s higher hp & torque.

    a dashboard on a motorcycle? buy a car.

  9. 9 highrpm Jul 27th, 2016 at 8:11 am

    too much plastic paneling.

  10. 10 Sharkey Jul 27th, 2016 at 8:23 am

    Less alluding to their namesake and more standing on their own merits. Nice traditionally styled bikes

  11. 11 Dan Brunson Jul 27th, 2016 at 8:41 am

    I have a 2016 Roadmaster that was converted to a trike-extremely happy with it but am not real satisfied with the issue that I can not hook my Garmin GPS up to it and make the sound come through the speakers so I can hear the directions-will this be fixed or some kind of interface-I can Bluetooth my IPHONE to it and it works fine-just doesn’t make allot of sense why I can Bluetooth one but not the other

    Awesome. Glad to see Indian is not only competing, but is doing so on a high level. This will only make Harley better, as they will have to up their game. We are blessed to live in a country with two such amazing motorcycle manufacturers.

    On an unrelated side note, check out what is happening with electric bicycles. Start here: https://www.pedegoelectricbikes.com/. I know – nothing to do with motorcycles. But read on.

    Finally .. what should have been in place back on the ’14s. People have bought HDs and Goldwings the last several years because the Indians lacked this functionality. They’ve leveled the playing field ( or raised the bar per marketing ) at the top end now…

    I’m a fan of some of the new paint schemes… more options is always a good thing.

    Now…. if they’ll just come to market with an Inline 4… ( hint hint )

  14. 14 18 Bravo Jul 27th, 2016 at 10:32 am

    We Indian owners can’t hear the whining front so far out front.

  15. 15 Steve Jul 27th, 2016 at 12:39 pm

    A $29k+ bike ought to have a MUCH wider paint selection. Can’t stand the two tone and not a fan of black. Oh, that leaves ONE color. Sorry, if I’m paying that much for a bike I’m not “settling” for something I don’t like looking at.

  16. 16 NoH2oh Jul 27th, 2016 at 3:53 pm

    $9,999 for a Scout 60. Why buy a Sportster?
    And that engine is the best looking water cooled mill in motorcycles. In my opinion It would not look out of place in a modern Brough.

  17. 17 Blackmax Jul 27th, 2016 at 4:53 pm

    Seems like about a $2 grand increase on the Roadmaster, but it does not matter !!!
    The ONLY thing that the Roadmaster was missing vs an Ultra Glide has been addressed
    Those who wrote that the Rushmore GPS / “Boom info system was better had best take another look.
    Indian / Polaris has seemed to level the playing field once again !!
    And I will still be looking to buy one this winter !!!
    Now if they would only do something to upgrade the Victory Cross bikes up to close the same level
    a lot more people would be happy & that market share they keep nibbling at might get a little bigger !
    The next shot is H-D putting the 110 in the regular lin & the 120 in the CVO’s !!
    Interesting to see the next response fro Polaris for both brands

    I want to love the Scout — and they’re great rides; I’ve demo-ridden one — but the radiator is too damn obtrusive, not to mention the way the frame juts out to accommodate it. Nothing against liquid cooling, but the radiator should be more hidden, a la the new Bonneville from Triumph. I wouldn’t mind seeing cooling fins on the Scout engine as well (yes, I know it doesn’t need them) so it has more resemblance to the big Indians’ 111 Thunderstroke

    I bought my first new Harley in 1980. I think I have bought my last new one in 2012. Harleys are like a fine tuned farm implement in comparison to these new Indian big twins. I think it is time to move on.

  20. 20 THUNDERSTROKE PETTER Jul 28th, 2016 at 2:12 am

    Indian is selling very good up here in Scandinavia and with this 17 line up and Scouts adjusted with low power to give the youngster an entry bike this will Rock !
    safe riding

  21. 21 Marilyn DeMartini Jul 28th, 2016 at 6:41 am

    Look forward to seeing these bikes in person–great report. Love my Indian but planning for the next one.

  22. 22 Zenaldo Jul 28th, 2016 at 3:57 pm

    sorry…don’t think you’ll find any of these in my garage any time soon… I suspect the driveline engineering is good, but the overall visual design is pretty unattractive..

  23. 23 Dieter Sowade Aug 5th, 2016 at 5:29 am

    ……… and no doubt they going to RUSH you a whole pile MORE
