Newest addition to the lineup shares many elements of the
award-winning Indian Scout, with a price point that brings legendary
Indian Motorcycle craftsmanship and world renowned Indian Scout
performance within reach of every rider
Motorcycle®, America’s first motorcycle company, from the
floor of the EICMA International Motorcycle Show in Milan, Italy, today
introduced the latest addition to its 2016 lineup — the all-new
Indian Scout® Sixty. The new 999cc Scout Sixty breaks through
boundaries, promising to broadly 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 award-winning Indian® Scout®, which was introduced in
2014 at the Black Hills Rally on the fabled “Wall of Death.” True to the
craftsmanship, reliability and legendary agility of the Indian Scout,
the new Scout Sixty shares the identical chassis, suspension, brakes and
core engine — all mated with a new 60 cubic inch engine. With a dry
weight of 542 pounds and a potent 65 ft./lbs. of linear torque, the
Scout Sixty is paired with a silky smooth, easy-to-shift 5-speed
transmission, and starts at $8,999. Offered in three classic Indian
Motorcycle colors, the Scout Sixty features a black seat, matching black
frame and wheels, and is compatible with the more than 200 accessories
already available for the Scout.
“The Indian Scout has been a stunningly successful introduction for us,
with balance, performance and maneuverability 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.”
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 not shy on performance, with Roland Sands Designs
getting the nod as the first to customize the new model. Sands
customized five new motorcycles to race prep them for battle in the
street bike-based class for the “Super Hooligan” class at the
Superprestigio of the Americas, slated for November 21 at the Orleans
Arena in Las Vegas. 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.
“The Indian Scout has quickly established itself as a stylish,
head-turning urban cruiser that is easy to modify and make your own,”
said Indian Motorcycle Marketing Director Scott Meek. “With a starting
price of $8,999 and even broader appeal to a generation who take great
pride in standing apart from the crowd, we expect the versatile new
Scout Sixty to cement that reputation.”
