Thanks to its acquisition by the Polaris giant Indian has a solid foundation for renewed success, both technically and financially. The mythical American brand took the opportunity to (re) attack his “old” Harley-Davidson rival on all fronts, especially with its unique Sixty Scout unveiled at EICMA Motorcycle of Milan.
A few details, the Sixty Scout Scout is identical to the “all-court” revealed last summer, except she wears less chrome and black parts (frame, swingarm, wheels batons, etc.). The most important change affects the engine, a V-twin opened at 60 degree and cooled by injected water, whose stroke is reduced by 99 to 93mm while the bore remains 73.6mm. This reduction leads to a decrease of 1133cc displacement on the “big” Scout 999cc on the new Scout Sixty, named in reference to its displacement measuring the Atlantic. Performance is “mechanically” revised down from 100hp and 97Nm of torque at 78hp and 88.8Nm. These values are rather flattering for a custom.
Available in white cream, red or black and 5 year warranty (like all Indian and Victory), the Scout Sixty appears to $12.5k against $14k for its predecessor.
