Indian Motorcycles have made a remarkable presence in India during its early years of launch in the country. The motorcycles are premium cruisers and provide a lot of road presence to the machine and the rider. The all new addition to the lineup has been announced at the EICMA 2015 in the form of Scout Sixty. The youngest member of the Indian family comes with the most affordable price tag and the best a cruiser can get for the same.
Design and Style
The Indian Scout Sixty comes with a cruiser look, showing its muscle through heavy front and rear metal mudguards and a curved fuel tank. The symmetry of each of the
component makes it look perfect from the side look, further adding the charm of dual exhaust outputs in chrome. The single V designed seat looks very attractive and provides a bit of support to the rider. Alloy wheels are mostly covered by huge disc brake from one side and comes with a black finish for a decent look.
Dimensions and Weight
The Scout Sixty measures 2311mm in length, 880mm in width and 1207mm in height. The wheelbase measures 1562 mm, with a ground clearance of 135mm. The seat height of the motorcycle is 643mm. The Scout Sixty weighs 254 kg and comes with a 12.5 liter fuel tank.
Engine and Gearbox
The Scout Sixty is powered by a 999.6cc, liquid cooled V-Twin engine producing 78 HP @ 7300 rpm and 88.8 NM @ 5800 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The engine is quiet powerful as pulling the 254 kg Scout Sixty is not an easy task at all. The closed loop fuel injection makes the motorcycle more refined and fuel friendly.
Brakes and Suspension
Scout Sixty comes with a 298mm front disc brake with 2-piston caliper whereas a 1-piston caliper, 298 mm disc brake has been used for the rear. ABS goes missing from the motorcycle. The suspension on the front is telescopic forks with 120 mm travel whereas the rear uses dual shocks with only 76 mm of travel. Front uses a fat 130/90-16 wheel whereas the rear is a 150/80-16 unit.
