Indian Motorcycles has revealed the Indian Scout Bobber featuring a blackout and stripped down look.

American motorcycle manufacturer, Indian Motorcycle has unveiled a new model based on the Scout. The new addition to the Scout family is the Indian Scout Bobber which is based on the standard motorcycle, with only some cosmetic changes.

What Indian has basically done is taken the regular Scout and stripped it down, chopped off its fenders, given it some new tyres, some blacked out panels and moulder leather seats available in different style options. The result of turns a gorgeous motorcycle into a more aggressive and muscular looking bike.

With a minimalist approach to the design, the Scout Bobber gets a new styled badge on the fuel tank with black letters, instead of the trademarked running hand logo the world has been used to for over a century. The bike is offered in Bronze Smoke, Indian Motorcycle Red, Star Silver Smoke, Thunder Black, and Thunder Black Smoke paint finishes, all of which feature blacked out panels on the fuel tank where the ‘Indian Scout” is housed. The headlamp gets a new shroud, new engine covers, small bar-end mirrors, blacked out twin exhaust pipes, stubby tyres wrapped around new 8-spoke blacked out 16-inch alloy rims. The handle bars are new, and the foot pegs have been repositioned closer to the rider to allow for a more aggressive riding stance.

The Scout Bobber used the 1131cc, liquid cooled V-Twin engine from the regular Scout. The engine develops 100bhp and 97.7Nm of torque. The Scout Bobber comes with a six-speed transmission and features a telescopic fork and dual shock suspension from front and rear respectively. The Indian Scout Bobber was launched in America with a price tag of $12,499 USD (~Rs. 8,03,423). However, though we do expect the Scout Bobber to make its way to our shores soon, it would most likely be priced at a slight premium over the regular Scout, which is priced at Rs. 12.99 lakh (ex-showroom).
