This latest kin of Scouts bows to Indian Motorcycle's roots while embracing a fusion of quintessential American aesthetics, a mix of power and precision and the avant-garde technology tailored for the rider.

Across the range, anti-lock braking emerges as the stalwart guardian of rider confidence and braking finesse, while select models extend their prowess with Traction Control and Ride Modes, granting riders the reins to personalise their journey with the push of a button.

At the epicenter of the reimagined Indian Scout lies the all-new 1 250cc liquid-cooled V-Twin engine – the SpeedPlus 1250. Unleashing up to 82 kW of power and 109 Nm of torque, each Indian Scout promises an adrenaline-laden journey with seamless throttle response courtesy of electronic fuel injection, coupled with a responsive six-speed transmission for a spirited jaunt.

Ben Lindaman, the guardian of Indian Motorcycle's product portfolio, chimes in: "The Scout holds a special place in our hearts as an iconic and historic model that resonates with riders worldwide. With the evolution of the midsize cruiser segment, our research propelled us to prioritise the Scout's iconic design, top-tier performance, and rider-focused technology."

To elevate an American icon like the Indian Scout, Indian Motorcycle set its compass on three cardinal points.

First and foremost, the new Scout had to remain steadfast to its legendary design DNA, a beacon cherished by riders.
