Back in 1901, Indian Motorcycle was founded with the intention of becoming an American legacy brand that builds trusted motorcycles for our nations riders. Today, almost 120 years later, they’ve become one of the most respected production builders in the industry. Partially due to their storied history, but mostly because they continue to release beautiful bikes like their 2018 Scout Bobber – the newest addition to the Scout family.
Here, Indian went ahead and stripped down the bike to its bare essentials to celebrate the motorcycles of America’s post-war past. It’s powered by a liquid-cooled V-twin engine that pushes out 100 horses and boasts a hard-to-miss split dual exhaust that helps the beaut breathe in the process. Additionally, thanks to its tracker handlebars and footpegs, the Scout Bobber offers a more engaged riding position – even coming stock with new knobby tires and blacked-out wheels for a more intense appearance. The production bobber is also available in a handful of colors (though we’re clearly a fan of the Thunder Black option) and is slated to hit North American dealers this Fall.
