The Indian Scout Bobber from the Indian Motorcycles may be felt like a small cruiser by its eye-catching look compared to rest of the bikes in Indian label. The Bobber built in the same platform of the Scout but it gets more appeal and more road presence. Its traditional short chopped style rear fender, wider rear tyre, solo seat, short front fender similar to rear, newly designed headlight nacelle and bar end mirrors all contributes to the overall clean and attractive look.
The Indian Scout Bobber is powered by the same liquid-cooled 1133cc V-twin engine as the standard Scout which produces 100 bhp and 97 Nm of torque at 6000 rpm via a six-speed gearbox and final chain drive. The bobber follows a black out theme by its matte black split dual exhaust, wheels and frame with a contrasting chrome outline for the engine. The bike gets a new cartridge-type telescopic fork with 119 mm of travel for the front suspension and a dual-spring with 50 mm travel setup at the rear that has been lowered by an inch for a classic bobber-like stance.
By the overall view the Indian Scout Bobber is a very, very good looking motorcycle and has enough performance. It is more perfect for those who do short weekend rides or occasional rides to hangout with friends. Taking long rides may tire you out over a full day of riding by its aggressive riding position and the stiff suspension. The Scout Bobber is priced at an ex-showroom of Rs. 12.99 lakh.
