Workhorse Speedshop Brings Industrial Style To The Indian Scout Bobber

Every year, devotees of motorcycling’s most interesting straight-line race head to Europe to catch a glimpse of bespoke cycles, blistering speeds, and all of the sport’s associated carnage. To prepare for the highly-anticipated “Sultans of Sprint,” Indian Motorcycles’ European office enlisted the help of Brice Hennebert’s Belgium-based Workhorse Speedshop to create an insane variant of their 2018 Scout Bobber — a monstrous homage to the golden age of industrial design.

Hennebert’s adversarial Scout boasts an intimidating presence that puts lesser bikes to shame, building upon one of Indian’s flagship four-stroke platforms to create the experimental specimen you see before you. But, as with most praise-worthy projects, the journey toward the final product was substantially understated. With over 700 hours of work and weeks of shaping, forming, and conceptualizing the bike’s outer facade, the builder’s tenacity (and relentless pursuit of perfection) have brought the Scout to where it is today. Pulling inspiration from the coal-powered iron giants of the 1920s, early 1900’s Formula 1 vehicles, and even the iconic F-86 Sabre aviation platform, Hennebert’s 100-horsepower Indian gradually took form — exhibiting one-of-a-kind aluminum bodywork, a gigantic front fairing, and a unique tail section that references GP two-strokes from the 1980s. To round out the super-sprinter, Workhorse Speedshop tacked on a 30-horsepower nitrous boost system for good measure — bringing the Scout to a daunting 130-horsepower, overall.
