|America’s first motorcycle company, Indian Motorcycle has introduced the new Scout Sixty bike to beef up its 2016 line-up. The new Indian Scout Sixty has made debut at the EICMA International Motorcycle Show in Milan, Italy.|
The Indian Scout Sixty has a 60 cubic inch engine (999cc), hence the name of the bike, and promises to broadly appeal to all riders with a knack for a premium motorcycle at the lowest Suggested Retail Price range, which has yet to be set for the variant.
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 Scout, the new Scout Sixty shares the identical chassis, suspension and brakes, all mated to a new 60 cubic inch engine.
With a dry weight of 246 kg and a potent 78 hp and 89 Nm of torque, the Indian Scout Sixty is paired with a silky smooth, easy-to-shift 5-speed transmission and has a starting price of 11,990 Euros, obviously for the European market.
Offered in three classic Indian Motorcycle colors (red, white and black) the new bike has a premium black seat, matching black frame and wheels, and can be fitted with over 200 accessories already available for the Scout.
A seat height of 25.3 inches (64.2cm) 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 foot-peg 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 over the winter period, prior to the new riding season in 2016.
