Indian Motorcycle has expanded the Scout’s Indian portfolio by riding in the new Scout Bobber. It is the American bikemaker’s first bobber-styled motorcycle since it made its comeback a few years back under Polaris. The new motorcycle has been launched in India but prices haven't been announced yet. Bookings for the motorcycle has started across all Indian Motorcycle dealerships in our country. We expect the Indian Scout Bobber to be priced around Rs 13 lakh (ex-showroom) and it will rival the likes of the Triumph Bonneville Bobber and Moto-Guzzi V9 Bobber in India.  In true bobber tradition, the new motorcycle features a chopped front fender and rear mudguard along with fatter tyres to give it a stripped-down look. The headlight cover is also different and most of the parts have been blacked out to give the Indian Scout Bobber a mean look. The new bike also gets equipped with a redesigned single saddle, a badge on the tank and bar-end mirrors. Also Read Triumph Bonneville Bobber Road Test

The rear suspension travel has been lowered by 45mm to give it a better stance while the telescopic front forks now get new cartridges. The riding posture has also been altered to suit the bobber DNA: the footpegs have been moved inward and it gets a new tracker-style handlebar which translates to an aggressive riding style. Mechanically, the Indian Scout Bobber is similar to the standard bike as it is powered by the same 1,113cc motor. The V-twin engine delivers 100PS of power and 98Nm of peak torque at 6,000rpm. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel by a six-speed transmission.

Braking is done by single 298mm-dia disc brake at front and rear while ABS is an optional extra in the US market but it would be most likely be standard in India. The bike rides on 130/90 R16 tyre at the front and 150/80 R16 tyre at the rear. The Scout Bobber has a fuel tank capacity of 12.5 litres and weighs 251kg. The new motorcycle will be brought via the CBU route to our two-wheeler market. The new Scout Bobber would  be available in the following five colours - Thunder Black, Star Silver Smoke, Bronze Smoke, Indian Motorcycle Red, and Thunder Black Smoke. Also Read - Moto-Guzzi V9 Bobber Review
