The Scout Sixty has a 999cc motor (60 cubic inches which gives the name of the bike), and at £8,999 it is the the lowest priced bike yet from the brand.

The new Indian Scout Sixty offers many of the same features and components as the Indian Scout, introduced last year. The new Scout Sixty has an identical chassis, suspension and brakes as the Scout and comes with a dry weight of 246kg. The motor makes 78hp and 89Nm of torque.

Offered in three classic Indian Motorcycle colours; red, white and black, the new model has a black seat, matching black frame and wheels and can be fitted with over 200 accessories already available for the Scout.

“The Indian Scout has been a stunningly successful introduction for us, with balance, performance and manoeuvrability that appeals to a broad swath of riders here in America and around the globe,” said Steve Menneto, President of Motorcycles for Polaris Industries. “The new Scout Sixty expands that reach even further to include newer riders and a younger demographic who long to experience the legendary quality and craftsmanship of an Indian motorcycle.”

A seat height of 642mm (25.3 inches) and the low centre of gravity gives the bike agility and helps keep up overall rider confidence and control, say Indian.
