If you are a fan of the Indian brand of motorcycle you might be interested to know that the legendary American cruising motorcycle is back in the form of the 2015 Indian Scout Motorcycle. But what does this great motorcycle have to offer that sets it apart from others when looking to purchase a new motorcycle with the Indian brand name? Here is all you need to know about the bike in a nutshell.
Brief History of The Classic Motorcycle
The Indian motorcycle company made the first versions of the Scout between 1920 and 1949, with the 101 Scout being named as the best bike to have been made. Lighter framed bikes were introduced in 1932 and this is when the standard version was introduced. Other versions followed on and military versions have been used in WWII. The latest in the long line of motorcycles is the 2015 version, which falls under the classification of a cruiser.
Traditional Meets Innovation
It offers the same pedigree as any of the long list of motorcycles from the brandname that have become a legend. However it blends the traditional with innovation as it offers a first, a liquid cooled engine. This is by way of the 69 cubic inch V twin engine which offers performance that is said to be outstanding in all conditions.
The motorcycle relies on the latest technology including having counter balancing, 6 speed transmission and electronic fuel injection. However it is in keeping with the traditional design as it offers the high quality and authentic leather seat of the original motorcycle, this time in tan.
Tradition meets innovation again in the classic triangle that is rigid and seen on the original motorcycles, but here it has been designed with axles and steering head being the three points of that classic design.
The badge on the tank replicates that of the original bike dating back to the 20s as does the headlight.
The flow of the fenders of this latest addition to the range is the same as you would expect from the bodywork of a genuine motorcycle from the company and they have a jaunty style to them.
The motorcycle also provides the rider with wind protection, via the windshield that can be removed if required. Other special features include storage, backrest, reduced reach and extended reach accessories.
The 2015 Indian Scout motorcycle has come a long way since 1920 but it hasn’t lost the quality and great looks along the way and it’s at dealers now.
