Bobber back to old school

The new lightweight Indian Scout Bobber Sixty has come on the market.

The ‘new’ bike features stripped-down, blacked-out styling and a 60 cubic-inch – that’s 999cc to the rest of the world – liquid cooled engine. It’s the same 78-horsepower engine as the Scout Sixty.

Indian Scout Bobber Sixty

Lean and mean

This new version of the popular Scout Bobber is 10kg lighter than the regular machine.

This is, perhaps, a more attainable option for riders seeking the American riding experience.

Lightweight, nimble handling and a low centre of gravity will appeal to all riders seeking mean, old-school styling on a cool looking bike.

Indian Scout Sixty BobberAnd all this at what the marketing department call a ‘competitive price point’.

“Bringing a stripped-down, old-school Bobber at a lower price is something we’re very excited about,” said Reid Wilson, who’s the Vice President of the Indian Motorcycle company in the US.

“We’re proud to provide such a dynamic offering at a price that makes owning an Indian Motorcycle extremely attainable to an even wider range of motorcycle riders.”

Stripped down styling

But the new bike isn’t ‘cheapened’ in any way.

It still maintains the stripped-down styling of the original Scout.

This includes those chopped mudguards while, at the same time, adding several new styling cues that give the model a look of its very own.

The new machine features a cooler than cool blacked-out engine, a modern tank badge, perch mount mirrors, stripped-down headlight, an all-black seat, and all-new five-spoke all-black wheels.
