2015 Indian Scout

The new king of the road...

The Legend is Back. Like its iconic forerunner, the all-new Indian® Scout ™ is an innovative and aesthetically stunning American cruiser. It introduces the first-ever liquid-cooled Indian Motorcycle engine – an efficient and reliable 69 cubic inch V-twin – for impressive power on demand. This new model carries the legendary Indian® Scout™ name into the future in authentic Indian® Motorcycle® style.

Indian Motorcycle proudly introduces the new Indian Scout. The 2015 Indian Scout is a contemporary interpretation of one of motorcycling’s most famous and coveted bikes. With a DNA that is long on history, the all-new Indian Scout will appeal to riders with years of experience or new to the exciting world of motorcycling. The Indian Scout delivers on the legendary brands names promise of balance, quality and style, and featuring a starting US MSRP of $10,999 is more accessible than ever.

This is the first truly new Indian Scout in more than 70 years and marks the return of the legendary bikes that conquered the infamous “Wall of Death” and carried the legendary “Indian Wrecking Crew” motorcycle race team to multiple victories. Technology and designs derived from Scout models played a significant role for Allied Forces in World War II and a 1920 Indian Scout earned the title of the “World’s Fastest Indian” as proven by Burt Munro in 1967.

Three decades of innovations, racing wins, world records and industry firsts, built the legend of the Scout and drew thousands of riders in. Indian Motorcycle designers and engineers have taken that tradition and the characteristics of the models heritage and accelerated them through modern design and technology into the new 2015 Indian Scout. A motorcycle that reflects its legendary past and accelerates Indian Motorcycle towards a bright and global future.

And here we go, a very exciting new model from the newly acquired Indian Motorcycle company. Lots of people asked Indian for a more affordable model (the cheapest was $20k) and now we have one ($11k).

So, without further a do, how do you think Indian did with the Scout?

I like it......its modern yet retro in its styling. Its a mid size (these days) vtwin but makes 100 hp ....kudos......its not really heavy and its priced reasonably.

I like the direction they are going ......hopefully this will lead to more interesting models , maybe even NON cruiser bikes.......well done.

I'm not into cruisers at all, but this bike really intrigues me. I like that Indian have decided not to be slaves to heritage. Like Shriker said, it's a really good balance between retro and modern design. Lots of really interesting details; I like that the engine doesn't have any fake cooling fins. I like that the area under the seat isn't a plastic cover but actually part of the frame. Even the radiator shroud is part of the frame. I've read that it handles pretty well, and 100hp in a bike this size and weight would be handy. Solid cool.

I assume that Indian will spin off this engine and frame into a whole range of variants, and I hope that one of them would be a sort of "Sport Scout" with; dual disks (with at least the option of ABS), mid mount controls + a taller seat, a bigger fuel tank (c'mon, what'll you do with 3.3 gallons?), a extra clock (for a tach). Now that would be a solid Awesome, sort of Indian's XR1200 (but then, it wasn't exactly a good seller for H-D, was it?)

I really like the points Shriker and Grey Thumper bought up. I do believe this is a real (extremely good) turning point for Indian motorcycle. A 100hp, 550lbs cruiser with 70lb of torque with the prestige/fit/finish of Indian brand at a $10k price tag!? IF this doesn't win bike of the year I'd be shocked.

Awesome+

Absolutely beautiful machine, such a visionary model for Indian at this point in their long career. I think this model will move them ahead of their competitors and bring a new type of clientele... just what they needed to do. Way to Indian for pushing the needle ahead! AWESOME! :mrgreen:

I voted Awesome. It is good to see Indian build a bike that more riders can afford, plus it should be a fun bike with plenty of power without too much weight.

I am not a big fan of cruisers, but I really like this bike. I voted awesome and then switched to cool, and then back to awesome. I think it is somewhere between the two, but I just like the lines of this bike and how the saddle fits into that picture. For me, I think the riding position would be torture, so it is not like I would ever buy this motorcycle, but I can happily admire from a distance.

Safe Travels,
Richard

I'm glad Indian add a second line of bikes. I would be happier if the overall outline of the bike wasn't so...... Victory-ish?

I would have voted awesome if it had a bigger gas tank. 12-1/2 l tank is a bit small.

Instead I gave it a cool.

That is not all the way true I have owned and love plenty of em. I would go crazy for a Victory Crossroads/ and or a Dyna Glide. The Dyna to me is a fine fine machine as well. I just don't really like all the open space on the frame and the almost Biker Mouse appearance of the Scout the motor sounds like it will be a winner but let's see I just really don't like it thats all.

Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... -Scout.htm

Coolness Factor of the 2015 Indian Scout is:

Awesome (3 points) 63% [ 37 ]
Cool (2 points) 32% [ 19 ]
Uncool (1 point) 3% [ 2 ]
Fail (0 point) 2% [ 1 ]

Total votes : 59

= a Coolwall Factor of 85.4%

NOTES: What a difference a week on the Cool Wall can make? Our last entry finished at just 43%, this week not only was it the most voted on bike (in 1 week) but also finished at a great 85%! Indian sure has a stunner of a bike on their hands at a stunning price! 95% of voters thought it was cool... what more can you say about Indian's (under Polaris) new model from a new reborn brand? What to go Indian!

Next 2014 TMW Cool Wall bike is now up for voting on, have fun!!

BTW, a score of 85.4% makes the 2015 Indian Scout our 2nd coolest bike this year thus far!
