Indian Motorcycle is all set to launch the Scout Bobber on November 24 amidst the 2017 edition of India Bike Week (IBW). We at Express Drives, were the first ones to bring you the exclusive images of the India-bound model and now, our sources close to the development have sent us some more pictures. As revealed by our little birdie earlier, the Indian Scout Bobber will be launched in the country at a price of Rs 13.95 lakh (ex-showroom, Ahmedabad). The motorcycle is clearly the sportiest and meanest looking motorcycle from the company’s line up and it was unveiled globally in June this year. For those not in the know, the bookings for this motorcycle had already commenced at the company’s dealerships across India at a token amount of Rs 50,000. The Indian Scout Bobber will land on Indian soil via the Completely Built Unit (CBU) route that somewhat justifies its price tag.
The Indian Scout Bobber gets its power from an 1131cc, twin cylinder engine that has been linked to a six-speed transmission system. The fuel injected motor sheds out a maximum power output of 99 hp along with a peak torque of 97.7 Nm. The bike is drenched in an all-black theme and the prime visual highlights include knobby tyres, tracker style handlebar and chopped off front and rear fenders.
The braking to the Indian Scout Bobber is done with the help of 298mm disc brakes that have been fitted at both ends. These further come linked to an ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) for added safety. The motorcycle gets all-new forks at the front and the rear set up has been lowered by 25mm.
The Indian Scout Bobber will rival against the likes of the Harley-Davidson Forty Eight, Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber and Triumph Bonneville Bobber in the Indian premium motorcycle market. The bike will be launched in two colours viz matte black and silver. More details to be revealed on November 24!
