Written By:

American motorcycle manufacturer Indian Motorcycle has revealed the 2017 Scout Bobber, a new addition to the Scout family. The motorcycle features aesthetic and mechanical changes.

On the design front, the 2017 Scout Bobber features chopped fenders, and the seat has been redesigned to go with the Bobber theme. The headlight gets a little shroud, which is called as the nacelle.

The Indian Scout Bobber is a stripped-down version of the Scout and gets new minimal engine covers. The classic Indian font on the side of the tank has been replaced with block letterings to give the motorcycle a muscular look.

The Scout's original swept handlebars have been replaced with new tracker-style bars. The motorcycle also gets small bar-end mirrors. The Scout Bobber also features blacked out parts such as exhaust and gauge face.

Mechanically, Indian has tweaked the riding position and suspension of the Scout Bobber. The rear shocks have been lowered by an inch to reduce the ride height. The footpegs are now closer to the rider by 1.5-inch which results in an aggressive riding position.

Up front, the Scout Bobber is equipped with cartridge-type forks. Apart from that the motorcycle features two-tone seat, side-mounted registration plate and LED rear turn indicators.

The 2017 Indian Scout Bobber draws power from the existing 1,133cc liquid-cooled, V-twin engine producing 100bhp and 97.7Nm of peak torque. The engine is coupled to a 6-speed gearbox.

The new Scout Bobber will be available in five colour schemes - Indian Motorcycle Red, Thunder Black, Thunder Black Smoke (ABS), Star Silver Smoke and Bronze Smoke. The motorcycle will go on sale in September 2017.
