Indian Scout vs. Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight - Indian Motorcycle

It’s historic. It’s legendary. It’s the Indian Scout. The Scout is a modern interpretation of a time-honored motorcycle. It leads its class in performance with a 1133 CC, 100 HP V-twin engine that delivers power for days and looks good doing it. See how the Indian Scout stacks up against its closest competitor, the Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight. It’s time to start your legend on an all-new Indian Scout

    This video makes total sense. It's just like me trying to convince a hot girl that my penis is better than the guy beside me and that I preform a lot better in bed.

    I personally would love a Scout, but I have a 27" inseam (without boots on, 27.5 – 28" with boots) so reaching the pegs would be tough. Looking at the bike, there doesn't seem to be a place to move them to mid controls or anywhere in between mid and forward. At least HD has the Lowrider S.

    Indian is lying again about the 48 being the closest thing to the scout. The 1200 Custom is the closest thing to the scout. The 1200 Custom is cheaper and holds more fuel. The scout may have more power, but compare to the correct bike.

    It may be a better bike but the 48 looks way better and is miles cooler!

    I have test ridden both and I must say that the Scout on the whole is a much better package then the Sportster 48.

    Nice! Way better than a jinky-ass Harley! People pay extra for that "HD" name. I would rather save money and have a better bike! I'm just funny like that. No HD kool-aid for me!

    You just got to your first prom, the King has been there for 113 years before. You bought the name, you're still Polaris. So lose the head……… You have a nice bike…… That being said, stop making me feel foolish and ignorant for owning 5 Harleys……………. I haven't owned 1 Indian yet…………

    Beautiful bike. I really dig the industrial look with the big radiator and duel shocks.

    Dig the look of the scout but I have 2 issues:

    1) It seems like they decided to make the radiator a feature of the bike instead of trying to clean up the lines and making it slim and low profile. It reminds me of an old 1980's Honda shadow, or a Vmax with those huge protruding radiators. C'mon!! Show off that beautiful frame! Look at Honda fury's or Vulcan 800's, radiators can be hidden easily!!
    2) Why not make this a single mono-shock with a "soft-tail" look? It would look much more like the classic it is modeled upon. And the dual shocks tilted at that 45 degree angle seem like that's what they wanted to do anyways, but just decided to compromise.

    But once again, just my opinion, others may dig big radiators and dual shocks.
