In 2023, the American motorcycle manufacturer unveiled their 2024 line-up of V-twin motorcycles, which included the Indian Scout, a fusion of a classic and modern aesthetic complemented by an accommodation of a low riding position and agile handling.
The Indian Scout is a more traditional American version of a cruiser motorcycle and is set to hit the dealerships at an MSRP of $13,250, less than the most basic Harley-Davidson Softail Standard. The bike is available in several color schemes, including Spirit Blue Metallic with Black Metallic, Maroon Metallic, Black Metallic, and Silver Quartz Metallic.
In the aesthetic department, the 2024 model year Indian Scout is fitted with standard features, such as a small round headlight up front, a wide handlebar, a one-piece dual seat with a low seating position, a black-finished engine, a dual chromed exhaust system with two mufflers mounted on the right side, and five triple-spoke lightweight wheels with fat tires.
On the front end, the Indian Scout is fitted with a telescopic fork and a 298 mm disc coupled to a hydraulically controlled caliper, while the rear end is handled by dual side-mounted shock absorbers and a 298 mm disc with a hydraulic caliper.
As for the power figures, the 2024 Indian Scout has its heartbeat set by a 1,133cc four-stroke liquid-cooled V-twin engine fed by an electronically controlled fuel injection system, boasting 100 hp and 98 Nm (72 lb-ft) torque at 5,900 rpm.
The new model of the Indian, the Scout 2019 comes equipped with a liquid-cooled V-Twin engine, 69 cubic, and 100 hp (74 Kw). Distinctive style, best class performance and amazing response to acceleration. The Indian Scout is inspired by the original 1920 Scout, with a headlamp, headlights, wheels and floating wings. This motorcycle has an iconic design and premium chrome offers plenty of brilliance.
The 2017 Indian ScoutIt is equipped with a modern lightweight chassis. A lower center of gravity. And a liquid-cooled 100-horsepower V-Twin that opens up and never stops. This model has a Cast Aluminium frame and a suspension telescopic fork 4.7 in (120 mm) at front, Dual Shocks 3.0 in (76 mm) at rear. Add the Slip On Exhaust for more power, better throttle response and rich, throaty exhaust notes that are sure to command attention.
This is where it begins. Your Legend. Powered by the Scout Sixty, the most attainable - and most approachable - bike in our entire line. Expertly balanced. Lightweight. And primed with 61 cubic inches of liquid-cooled American muscle. It's time. Be legendary.
In detail, the Sixty has the same ECU hardware, but different programing. If the exhaust is updated to Indian’s stage 2 the ECU requires a security code to be reflashed. The 4 lbs. of added weight to the claimed 542 lbs. dry is said to be the result of thicker-walled cylinder sleeves. The smaller bore is alone the 134cc difference—down from 1133 to 999—with the stroke unchanged for a bore and stroke of 93 x 73.6 mm. Yes, the engine is actually 61 cubic inches, not 60; write that one off to the naming department. All else is claimed to be the same, down to the 60mm throttle body, which is not the reason for the bike’s name.
The 2016 MY Indian Scout ABS is mainly addressed for those Indian fans that concern themselves more with their safety. It is basically the same model as the base Scout, but it features ABS brakes, which not only ensure a smoother braking, but also help with maneuverability.

In 1932, the Great Depression was in full bloom, and it's effects could be felt even by Indian, which stopped production of the Scout 101 and replaced it with the Scout Standard, which shared it's frame with the Chief and the Four models. It's engine remained the same, a 740cc V-Twin that produced a claimed 18 horsepower.
The Scout 101 was manufactured between 1928 and 1931 as a replacement to the Scout 37. The American brand upgraded its engine to an air-cooled, four-stroke, 740cc, V-Twin powerhouse, and also received a new frame with more fork rake, a longer wheelbase and a lower seat height.
