Expertly balanced and lightweight, Scout Sixty is the perfect motorcycle to start your legend...

The legendary heritage of the Indian Scout is carried forward in the all new Scout Sixty.






Indian Motorcycle unveils the versatile and affordable Scout Sixty

Newest addition to the line-up shares many of the elements of the award-winning Indian Scout, with a price point that brings legendary Indian Motorcycle craftsmanship and world-renowned Indian Scout performance within reach of every rider

EICMA Show, Milan: Indian Motorcycle, America's first motorcycle company, today introduced the latest addition to its 2016 line-up - the all-new Scout Sixty - from the floor of the EICMA International Motorcycle Show in Milan, Italy.


Scout Sixty has a 60 cubic inch engine (999cc), hence the name of the bike, and promises to broadly appeal to all riders with a premium motorcycle at the lowest MSRP yet for the brand.


The new Indian Scout Sixty offers many of the same features and components of the award-winning Indian Scout, which was introduced in 2014 at the Black Hills Rally on the fabled "Wall of Death".


True to the craftsmanship, reliability and legendary agility of the Scout, the new Scout Sixty shares the identical chassis, suspension and brakes - all mated to a new 60 cubic inch engine.


With a dry weight of 246kg and a potent 78hp and 89Nm of torque, the Scout Sixty is paired with a silky smooth, easy-to-shift 5-speed transmission and has a starting MSRP of €11,990 in Europe.


Offered in three classic Indian Motorcycle colours (red, white and black) the new model has a premium black seat, matching black frame and wheels and can be fitted with over 200 accessories already available for the Scout.


"The Indian Scout has been a stunningly successful introduction for us, with balance, performance and manoeuvrability that appeals to a broad swath of riders here in America and around the globe," said Steve Menneto, President of Motorcycles for Polaris Industries. "The new Scout Sixty expands that reach even further to include newer riders and a younger demographic who long to experience the legendary quality and craftsmanship of an Indian motorcycle."


A seat height of 25.3 inches (64.2cm) allows for sure-footed comfort at stops, and the low centre of gravity ensures agile cornering, precise balance and overall rider confidence and control.


A series of accessories including seats, handlebars and footpeg relocators allow the motorcycle to be tailored to fit each rider, while additional accessories such as saddlebags, wire wheels and quick-release windscreens give owners virtually unlimited freedom to customise their rides.


The new Scout Sixty is not shy on performance, with Roland Sands Designs getting the nod as the first to customise the new motorcycle. Sands has customised five new motorcycles to race prep them for battle in the street bike-based class for the "Super Hooligan" class at the Superprestigio of the Americas, due to take place on Saturday November 21 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.


The new Scout Sixty is already en route to dealerships around the world and is sure to be a popular platform for customising and personalising over the winter period prior to the new riding season in 2016.


"The Indian Scout has quickly established itself as a stylish, head-turning urban cruiser that is easy to modify and make your own," said Indian Motorcycle Marketing Director Scott Meek. "With a starting price of €11,990 and even broader appeal to a generation who take great pride in standing apart from the crowd, we expect the versatile new Scout Sixty to cement that reputation."

Brand new entry level cruiser model from Indian motorcycle that was just released!

As the economy stagnates around the world it is interesting to see how many new "smaller" engine bikes are now arriving.

Enjoy the new Scout Sixty!

Fail. The "grown up" scout is already extremely forgiving and easy to ride. It's just a tiny bit weighty, but very predictable and well balanced. What's the point of making a beginner version of a beginner motorcycle?

I kind of fail to see the point as well. The original (well the NEW original from 2014), is a cool bike with too small of a gas tank that both my wife and I got to demo this past summer. The sleeved down engine in the same bike sounds like it is just as expensive to produce and it is nearly as expensive to buy. Therefore - what the heck was the point?

I'll give it a cool, but for gods sake Mother Polaris put on a bigger tank!

I forgot to mention that. IMO the tank could be at least a full gallon larger without effecting the look of the bike in a meaningful way.

I voted: Cool

I couldn't go with an Awesome as it's really a Scout with a smaller engine... not that either the Scout or the Scout Sixty is not an awesome bike, I'd just like to see a little different design for the Sixty than a clone.

As mentioned, a bigger tank size would be nice to see, I don't understand why the manufacturers put in such small tanks... would you buy a car with a 5 gal gas tank?

Your Coolness Factor of the 2016 Indian Scout Sixty is:


Awesome (3 points) 30% [ 8 ]
Cool (2 points) 48% [ 13 ]
Uncool (1 point) 19% [ 5 ]
Fail (0 point) 4% [ 1 ]

Total votes: 27


= a Coolwall Factor of 67.9%

Notes: Smaller engine is nice, but please put in a bigger gas tank please is what our readers are saying. Also, cost? If the new smaller engine is just a sleeved down version of the same bigger engine, will the new Scout Sixty be a cost effective choice?


Get excited as the next TMW Cool Wall bike is now up for voting and discussion, have fun!
