The New Scout Bobber Is Stripped Down Street Brawler

Slammed, bobbed, blacked-out, simplified and essentially raw, this bike looks like more fun than is legal riding around the urban jungle or the open road

Now joining the Indian Scout lineup, is the new Indian Scout Bobber. Stripped down and looking slimmer and shorter, the low slung, blacked-out, minimalist motorcycle is out to prove that less is more. We couldn't agree more.
Sporting a muscular look, the Scout Bobber does away with superfluous chrome in an effort to better connect you to the road.
“The Scout Bobber is our most raw and mean machine to date, and the ultimate in the celebration of what motorcycling is about – a powerful engine, two wheels, and no plans of where to go,” said Reid Wilson, Marketing Director – Indian Motorcycle. “It’s an incredibly fun motorcycle that delivers a ton of attitude, along with a ton of power.”
Naturally, the Scout Bobber was designed as an homage to the mean, stripped-down builds of America’s post-war past. With its tracker handlebars and pegs moved 1.5” closer to the rider, the Scout Bobber delivers a more aggressive riding position. We'd love to get our hands on one of these bikes, as the laidback riding position of other Scouts felt to us like it wasn't best serving the bike's performance. The knobby tires and blacked-out wheels are stylish addition to the Scout's philosophy, while a low-slung profile and 1” lowered rear suspension deliver unfiltered feedback from every inch of blacktop.  
The Scout Bobber features a black headlight nacelle, minimal engine covers, bar-end mirrors and vented exhaust shields.  A black gauge face on its instrument panel and black exhaust further adds to its blacked-out styling.  The new block letter logo on the tank compliments the muscular look of the bike.
Chopped fenders front and rear and a new two-tone genuine leather bobber seat enhance the minimalistic styling. New rear LED lights with integrated stop, turn, and tail signals keep unnecessary parts to a minimum. The Scout Bobber is still powered by that peppy V-Twin engine with 100 horsepower. This should be fun!  
The Scout Bobber will be available at dealers in the U.S. and Canada starting in September. Five colors, including Thunder Black, Star Silver Smoke, Bronze Smoke, Indian Motorcycle Red, and Thunder Black Smoke with ABS, are available with prices starting from $11,499 to $12,499.  Pre-orders are available at dealers to make sure you can be the first to get the newest member of the Scout family.
