Reviving a Classic Motorcycle: The 2015 Indian Scout

By Brody Patterson


Updated on

Indian was a highly successful American motorbike manufacturer during the first half of the 20th century. One of its most popular models was the Scout, made between 1920 and 1946. After decades during which Indian basically ceased to function, the company was acquired by Polaris in 2011, a move which breathed new life into the legendary brand, which then started to revive its old models.

The 2015 Scout is a middleweight cruiser with a cast aluminum frame weighing in at 558 pounds. The motorbike is powered by a 1133cc V-twin engine which outputs 100 horsepower and 72 lb-ft of torque through a six-speed transmission. As the revival of a classic bike, the new Scout looks really great, with features like gloss black wheels, a black headlight bucket, tan saddle, and forward-canted tank reminiscent of the original from 1920.

Priced at around $11,000, the 2015 Indian Scout is set to be released sometime in the coming months.
