IN­DIAN SCOUT LAUNCHED

Priced at ` 11.99 lakh

Evo India - - News Snippets -

IN­DIAN MO­TOR­CY­CLES have opened book­ings for their en­try-level cruiser, the Scout. The launch marks a mile­stone i n the ef­fort by Po­laris – which holds a con­trol­ling stake i n In­dian Mo­tor­cy­cles – to re­vive the brand. The cruiser’s name harks back to In­dian’s en­trylevel cruiser from the 1920s.

The Scout fea­tures a strik­ing fu­sion of mod­ern and clas­sic styling cues, and will give cruiser en­thu­si­asts an al­ter­na­tive to the en­try-level Har­leys, es­pe­cially since Har­ley’s Sport­ster 1200 isn’t on sale in the coun­try. The Scout’s 1133cc, 60-de­gree V-twin, liq­uid­cooled, DOHC en­gine pro­duces 100bhp and 97.7Nm of torque. Priced at ` 11.99 lakh (exshow­room Delhi), just un­der the Har­ley-David­son Fat Bob, the In­dian makes a strong case for those l ook­ing for an en­try-level cruiser, with an air of ex­clu­siv­ity about it. The In­dian Chief has been re­ceived well de­spite the steep pric­ing, and the Scout is ex­pected to rack up more sales for the brand. It will be avail­able i n four colours, with matte op­tions as well. Cur­rently the brand has j ust one deal­er­ship in the coun­try, i n Gur­gaon, but we ex­pect more to come soon.
