A couple of brand new amazing bikes sounds like just the thing to kick off the summer riding season, doesn’t it? Indian Motorcycle has gone above-and-beyond in these times to make sure Total Motorcycle readers get the latest on their bikes. At Total Motorcycle we don’t do 1 day reviews, we thoroughly test and live with each and every product every day over 4 weeks before we review it. Thus, we got Indian to loan us an Indian Scout and a Indian Springfieldthe four weeks and we’ve got a lot of things planned. You don’t want to miss a minute of the fun!

First, make sure you are checking out the site on a regular basis over the next 4 weeks as we will post each episode on our front page and in our review area.

Then, head over to the TMW Forums to be part of the conversation in the Indian Summer Thread.

The Scout

A 2019 Indian Scout
Indian calls this color “Indian Motorcycle Red over Thunder Black.”

Our Indian Scout is already in the garage, and it looks great in there. The official color is “Indian Motorcycle Red over Thunder Black”. It’s a very heritage theme, vintage and classy, and the tan leather seat and saddlebags compliment it nicely.

Below the seat you find the main attraction, a 60° V-Twin motor displacing some 1,138 cc’s. It’s coupled to a six speed transmission, and delivers it’s power to the rear wheel via a belt final drive. Liquid cooled, fuel injected, all good stuff. We’ll tell you all about it as our review progresses.


The Springfield

2020 Indian Springfield Dark Horse

TBA. We don’t have a date for the Indian Springfield yet, but it’s on its way. We’ll keep you posted once they arrive. Shoot some video for you and give you our initial opinions.

Thanks for reading An Indian Summer Ep1, stay tuned for more episodes!



Thank You Indian

We want to extend our sincere thanks to Indian Motorcycles for the opportunity to review the Scout and the Springfield. We promise to take good care of your bikes and deliver nothing less than our honest, unbiased opinion for our readers.
