More Indian Motorcycles Is A Good Thing
Some recent CARB filings spotted by Motorcycle.com show that Indian Motorcycle will put out two new versions of the Scout for 2020. The first is the Indian Scout 100th Anniversary. The second is the Indian Scout Bobber Twenty. Indian has an important year coming up and it makes sense for the company to celebrate it.
Indian Scout 100th Anniversary
First up, we have the Indian Scout 100th Anniversary. An image of the bike leaked from a Polaris dealer meeting. In the photo, you can see the bike sports a red paint job with the iconic yellow pinstripe design. The wheels are spoked and there’s a floating seat, just like with the classic models.
This model does a good job of trying to blend the old bike’s classic looks with the new Scout’s modern design. It should be a seriously cool motorcycle, I’ll keep an eye out for any more details.
Indian Scout Bobber Twenty
When it comes to the Indian Scout Bobber Twenty, Motorcycle.com notes that the word twenty in the name most likely refers to the year 1920. This is another anniversary edition of the motorcycle.
Both the Indian Scout 100th Anniversary and the Scout Bobber Twenty feature the basic Scout 1133cc V-Twin engine. Motorcycle.com notes that the bikes were certified with Stage 1 intake and two-into-one upgrades. It will be cool to see these and the rest of the 2020 lineup break cover. I expect Indian to reveal its full 2020 lineup soon.
