Indian Motorcycle launches the Scout Sixty, a lesser powered version of the Indian Scout
INDIAN Motorcycle has been adding iconic bikes to its growing range in India. After the Chief, Chieftain, Roadmaster and Scout, it has now brought in the Indian Scout Sixty. A lesser powered version of the Indian Scout, the Scout Sixty has a 60 cubic inch engine (999cc in metric terms) that churns out 78PS and 88Nm of torque—a sizeable step down from the Scout’s 1,133cc unit making 100PS. While the power and engine capacity might still be challenging for unskilled riders, Indian Motorcycle insists that the Scout Sixty’s size doesn’t come in the way of manoeuvrability and highway manners, as its 250 kilogram kerb weight has been judiciously distributed to offer maximum stability.
Besides the Pearl White paint job unveiled at the Jogeshwari, Mumbai showroom, Indian Motorcycle will be offering the Scout Sixty in Thunder Black and Indian Motorcycle Red. It comes equipped with modern equipment while still retaining its vintage elements. For instance, the clocks on the instrument panel are all analogue with a digital display for the trip meter and the odometer. The stock bike can be customised with authentic Indian Motorcycle accessories like seats, handlebars, footrest relocators and detachable windscreens. There’s also a provision for kitting the Scout Sixty with laced front and rear wheels, which can be ordered from any of the seven dealerships in Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, Gurugram and Chandigarh. There are also plans for an outlet in Kochi. Imported as a CBU (completely built unit), the Scout Sixty is priced at Rs 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai).
