2015 Indian Scout, Specs and Price

0 4818


Indian has fully revealed it new 2015 Scout. The motorcycle is affordably priced just under $11.000 which gives it an advantage compared to its direct rivals.

When Indian revealed the 2015 Scout, yesterday, the company made a bold move that is sure to frustrate Indian traditionalists and pique the interest of riders who have wanted a smaller, lighter, less-expensive Indian. In the process, the design crew has shown that there is more than one way to interpret history.

Out of respect for the legendary Scouts of the 1920, ’30s, and ’40s, Indians says the new Scout engine carries forward “classic engine design cues” that honor both form and function.



The new Indian Scout is equipped with the company’s all-new liquid cooled 1133cc engine which generates a maximum output of 100 hp and 72 lb-ft of torque at 5900 rpm. The engine features a black paint job and comes with stylish polish details which give it a fairly unique look. The engine’s power is routed to the rear wheel by means of a six speed manual transmission.

The Indian Scout has a ground clearance of 25.3 inches and rides on a pair of tasty cast wheels shod in fat 16 inch tires.

As far as colours are concerned, the new 2015 Indian Scout is available with three paint jobs including: Indian Red, Thunder Black, Silver Smoke and Black Smoke.


Return of the Classic

Rather than make a cruiser that looks like a completely modern recreation of a vintage bike, Indian’s engineers decided to focus on recreating a modern version of the Scout as a performance-oriented motorcycle. True to that heritage, the 2015 Scout carries Indian’s second all-new engine in two years. With nary a fin in sight, the liquid-cooled (yes, liquid-cooled) 1133cc 60 degree V-Twin looks nothing like the air/oil-cooled Thunderstroke 111s powering the Chief Classic, the Vintage, the Chieftain, and the Roadmaster. (This is where the past-focused traditionalists will begin to feel their jaw muscles tightening.)

To deliver the performance portion of the equation, each cylinder carries dual overhead cams opening four valves. A ride-by-wire throttle controls the fuel metering in the 60mm throttle body while three way catalyst-equipped two-into-two exhausts handle the spent gasses

Other details include a classic “rigid triangle” design, which provides a visual link to the original Scout and teams with a pair of shocks with chrome springs. The wheelbase is 61.5 inches, there’s 5.3 inches of ground clearance, and maximum lean angle is reported to be a very substantial 31 degrees. High- and low-speed maneuverability, says Indian, is exceptional.

Although orders are being taken now at the company’s website, the 2015 Indian Scout, available in Thunder Black, Indian Motorcycle Red, Silver Smoke (matte) or and Thunder Black Smoke (matte), arrives at dealers in late 2014.
