November 18, 2015 — Indian motorcycle company, today introduced the new, smaller and less expensive Indian Scout® Sixty. The new 999cc Scout Sixty will appeal to new rider segments with a premium motorcycle at the lowest MSRP yet for the brand.
The new Indian Scout Sixty offers many of the same features and components of the Indian Scout, introduced in 2014. The new Scout Sixty shares the identical chassis, suspension, brakes and core engine with the existing Scout — all mated with a new 60 cubic inch engine. Featuring 78hp, the highest horsepower in class, and a dry weight of 542 pounds with a potent 65 ft./lbs. of linear torque, the Scout Sixty uses the easy-to-shift 5-speed transmission, and starts at $8,999. Offered in three classic, bold Indian Motorcycle colors, the Scout Sixty features a black seat, matching black frame and wheels, and is compatible with the many accessories already available for the Indian Scout.
“The Indian Scout has been a stunningly successful introduction for us, with balance, performance and maneuverability that appeals to riders,” said Steve Menneto, President of Motorcycles for Polaris Industries. “The new Scout Sixty expands that reach even further to include newer riders who desire the legendary quality and craftsmanship of an Indian Motorcycle.”
The Scout Sixty is available in Thunder Black starting at $8,999, with Indian Motorcycle Red and Pearl White color options starting at $9,299. A seat height of 25.3 inches allows for sure-footed comfort at stops, and the low center of gravity ensures agile cornering, precise balance and overall rider confidence and control. A series of accessories including seats, handlebars and footpeg relocators allow the motorcycle to be tailored to fit each rider, while additional accessories such as saddlebags, wire wheels and quick-release windscreens give owners virtually unlimited freedom to customize their rides.
The new Scout Sixty is already en route to dealerships around the world, and is sure to be a popular platform for customizing and personalizing prior to the traditional riding season kick-off at Daytona Bike Week.
“We expect the Scout Sixty to accelerate the already unprecedented success we have had with the new Scout platform,” said Indian Motorcycle Marketing Director Scott Meek. “The custom community has really embraced the Scout and we have experienced intense enthusiasm from DIY customizers, dealers, pro-builders and the aftermarket.”
