2017 Indian Scout Review

2017 Indian Scout on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

A legend reborn…

Riding a landslide of awards, accolades and phenomenal sales success, the ever-classic Indian Scout is back for 2017. This middle-weight cruiser’s weight has been reduced to 538 pounds (dry) and extends its legacy of dominance with perfect balance, precise handling and category-leading power and quickness. With a low 25.3-inch seat height and available extended and reduced reach accessories, the Indian Scout is the perfect bike for riders of many sizes and skill levels. Featuring a liquid-cooled 69 cubic inch V-twin engine, an exhilarating 100 HP of raw power, and starting at $11,299, the 2017 Indian Scout is the thoroughly modern rebirth of an American classic. Available in Ivory Cream, Thunder Black, Silver Smoke and Thunder Black Smoke. Indian Scout featuring ABS is offered in Burgundy Metallic plus a pair of two-tone finishes starting at $12,299.

 

It’s not too late to rewrite your script.

Change the plot. Add more action. And there’s no better bike to get you there than the Indian® Scout®. With a modern, lightweight chassis. A lower center of gravity. And a liquid-cooled 100-horsepower V-Twin that opens up and never stops.

New for 2017, the Scout® is offered in four color options while the Scout® ABS is offered in three – including two new two-tone
combinations. All are topped by a Desert Tan Solo Seat.

Additionally, an abundance of accessories allows a rider to build their own vision. Among the most popular accessories are reduced and extended reach seats, foot control adapters and handlebars that allow riders to create their ideal fit. Leather saddlebags and a variety of windscreens further stretch the horizon for weekend getaways and daily convenience.

Accessories like a new cantilevered solo seat, the 1920 Solo Saddle Seat, creates a floating effect to visually lighten the bike even further, and chrome spoke wire wheels with black rims are now available.

Take control of your story. Be legendary.

2017 Indian Scout www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Our liquid-cooled V-Twin engines are as impressive on the inside as they are on the outside. The original – a 69-cubic-inch, 1133cc powerhouse – thrusts the legendary Scout® forward with 100 barely tamed horsepower. While the matte-black, 60-cubic-inch version boldly powers the Scout® Sixty. Both engines were built from the ground up to deliver performance on demand, and make
every ride legendary.
