  • 2015 Indian Scout

    Went by the dealer. Salesman was telling me the 69" WATER COOLED V-Twin put out 100 HP. I don't know if I believe that as the 111 is putting out about the same. I do know the Scout is gorgeous.

      Yes, sir, it is good looking! I just found this machine today myself. Read some stuff on Indian's web page as well as Cycle World's online page. CW was very impressed with its first ride.

      I bet Indian sells a butt-load of these bikes.

      Could stare at the engine for hours!






      Sell safely.

        Beautiful bike and priced right at under $11K. I'm wondering about those rear shocks though. Don't they need to be mounted a little more vertical in order to work right?

          The CW review says they bottom out quickly, but still the bike handles well. They are mounted that way to make the bike look like a hard tail bike.

        I have always liked the retro style. I do like it's clean looks.

            That is the first retro V Twin that has ever got me thinking about making room for another bike in the garage. Very sharp!

              They look good in person. I saw one in Sturgis earlier this month.

                  LOL. I do my best to cover up the "ugly" with a hat and goggles, but it still sneaks out.

                Not to change the subject, but last night I was scrolling through the TV channels and happened to catch the word "Indian" on the Pawn Stars show. Anyway, turns out this guy had about 10 Indian motorcycles he had restored. There was a classic as well as a Scout among others. He claimed they were worth a half million dollars. He flat out refused an offer of 250K cask, They did buy a 1917 model for 57.5K that they can sell for 80K. I've never seen so man Indians in one place and every one was sparkling. Cool. Glad I caught it.

                  I was looking at the Indians a few months ago very nice and well made motorcycles.

                    I think it I were in the market for a small v-twin, that would be the one. Cool looking bike.

                      Not for me, but looks pretty cool. When I bought my Sportster back in 2005, I probably would have looked long and hard at one of these.

                      Ever since Polaris took on the Indian name, I have been impressed with what they have done. The style is not something that inspires me to even go test drive one, but none the less, I think they have ...

                      Yesterday my wife and I did the demo rides on the new Indain motorcycles. Local dealership hosted a Demo ride day. First we rode on the largest "Indain Roadmaster", well to say the least it was very impressive....

                      Indian 4 coming?
                      by Rick S
                      I was thinking that given Indians updated big bike engine and now a totally new Scout could a new inline 4 motor be next. That was top of the line engine for them in their heyday. If done right, and...

                      Today I finally got around to installing my new EZ-GPSMount on the windshield. It actually was a lot easier to install than my addled brain was picturing. I cannot ride with it until after the new year,...
