Indian Motorcycle has introduced the new Indian Scout Bobber to its line-up. It is a cosmetic update to the standard Scout, which the company calls a 'stripped-down version.'

The new model receives chopped front and rear fenders, chunky tyres, street tracker handlebar and blacked-out finish on most of the parts. The handlebar further features bar-end mirrors and there is a new badge on the fuel tank as well. The Indian Scout Bobber gets a low-slung, brown leather seat with rear suspension lowered by 1-inch as compared to the standard version. The alloy wheels are also new and the slotted black exhaust pipes maintain the aggressive detailing to its core.

 

The bike features headlight nacelle like its elder siblings, the Indian Chief cruiser range. There is a side mounted rear license plate for an uninterrupted rear profile. In fact, there is no additional tail lamp on the bike as the rear turn indicators take the multitasking.

There is no change in the powertrain and the Scout Bobber is powered by the same 1,131cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, V-twin that comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. A maximum output of 100PS makes it one of the most powerful engines in the respective segment and it delivers a peak torque of 97.7Nm. The bike will be available on sale in the US from September at a starting price of $11,999. The bike is also expected to be launched in India by the end of this year with an ex-showroom price tag of around Rs 13.21 lakh.
