Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I am waiting to own the Scout since past 4 years. Is it really worth to own one and one main question I don't find ans any where is that. I am quite bad at controlling sporty bikes so I opt cruisers, I wanna know how good is it Road grip wise and How about brakes. I have a bad habit of using front brakes often than stamping the pedals. I want smooth stopping even at 3 digits speed. I usually don't ride harsh.. but Is it very under control ,manageable? I am confused between Scout and X diavel, Which to go for. Even suggest me any bike according to my favours as I said!! If anyone could clear all my doubts?
  • Selecting the right bike would depend on several factors such as your budget preference on the segment, features required, engine options, brand preference, etc. The Ducati XDiavel BS6 is powered by a 1262cc liquid-cooled L-twin engine which produces 160PS at 9500rpm (8PS more than before) and 127Nm at 5000rpm (1Nm more). It is reined in by various electronic aids such as three riding modes (Sport, Touring, Urban), traction control, launch control, cruise control, and a Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit-enhanced (IMU) cornering ABS. The bike rides on a fully adjustable inverted front fork and a rear mono-shock that’s adjustable for preload and rebound. On the other hand, The Scout uses a 1133cc, liquid-cooled V-Twin that belts out 97Nm of peak torque at 5,600rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The suspension duties on the Scout are handled by a telescopic fork and dual shock absorbers at the rear. its 16-inch front and rear wheels come shod with a 130/90-section tyre and a 150/80-section tyre. On the braking front, the Indian Scout comes with disc brakes (298mm at the front and the rear). If you want to go for a better fit and finish, you may opt for Indian Scout but the after-sales services are a bit of concern.
