The Indian Scout was one of the most popular cruiser bikes in the early to mid 1900s. There have been organizations that built on the Indian name since it went bankrupt in the 1950s, but it wasn’t until Polaris bought the brand a few years ago that there were bikes worthy of the American brand’s name. For 2015, Indian just revealed a resurrected Scout with a 69 cubic inch (1133cc) 60-degree liquid-cooled V-twin with 9,000 rpm redline, 100 horsepower (at 8,100 rpm) and 72.2 pound-feet of torque (at 5,900). It’s build with the original model’s triangular shape and proportions in mind and uses a cast aluminum frame. Now that you can almost smell the gasoline and feel your heart pumping, take a step back and look at this thing. This bike is fucking gorgeous. You’ll be able to pick up your own later this year in black, red, matte grey or matte black… assuming all of your friends don’t buy them first.
