Indian Motorcycle, the American bike manufacturer surprised at the EICMA when they showcased its new entry level motorcycle – the Scout Sixty. The smallest Scout carries a price tag of just 8,999 dollars (6.09 lakhs) in its parent country making it the most affordable bike in the line-up. With the manufacturer aggressively pursuing its Indian operations, it was definitely expected to come to the Delhi Auto Expo next month.
However, we have an exclusive confirmation from the company that Scout Sixty will NOT be present at the Auto Expo! So, it looks like enthusiasts in India will have to wait for some more time before they can get their hands on this beauty. Blending in retro with modern engineering, the Scout Sixty utilises the same chassis of its elder cousin, Scout.
The Scout Sixty though gets an all-new 999 cc liquid cooled V-twin engine producing 78 bhp of maximum power at 7,300 rpm and 88 Nm of peak torque at 5,800 rpm. All this is transmitted to the rear wheel via a belt drive with the help of a 5 speed constant mesh gearbox. The bike weighs 246 kg and has a 12.5 litre fuel tank.
Scout Sixty is expected to lower the entry into this premium brand and makes a very apt offering specially for our country but it appears that Indian Motorcycles’ Indian arm is not ready for it yet…
