Indian Motorcycle Announces the Next Evolution of Indian Scout

Since Ed Kretz’s historic triumph at the Daytona 200 in 1937, through the era of the formidable Indian Wrecking Crew in the 1950s, and culminating in Burt Munro’s legendary land speed record in 1967, the Scout from Indian Motorcycle has been at the heart of motorcycling’s most celebrated narratives. Today, the Indian Scout is the brand’s flagship model, having amassed an impressive global sales figure of over 100,000 units in the past decade alone.

Renowned for its mid-size cruiser stature with the industry’s lowest seat height, the Indian Scout remains a popular choice for riders entering the world of motorcycling. Boasting timeless American design, riders are drawn to the Scout’s combination of lightweight construction, agile handling, confidence-inspiring performance, practical technology, and top-tier rider amenities.

In its latest iteration, the 2025 lineup showcases five distinct models: the Scout Bobber, Sport Scout, Scout Classic, Super Scout, and the revival of the iconic 101 Scout. Each model harnesses the essence of the authentic Scout DNA, powered by an all-new liquid-cooled 1250cc SpeedPlus engine capable of delivering up to 111 horsepower. Expanding customization options, the Scout Bobber, Scout Classic, and Sport Scout are offered in three unique trim levels, allowing riders to tailor their selection to suit their preferences. The Super Scout and 101 Scout are exclusively available in the highest trim level, boasting the most comprehensive array of technology ever offered on an Indian Scout.

The focal point of the revamped Indian Scout lies in its entirely reimagined 1250cc liquid-cooled V-Twin engine – the SpeedPlus 1250. With the capacity to generate over 111 horsepower and upwards of 82 ft-lbs of torque, every Indian Scout promises sharp acceleration and impressive passing capabilities. Electronic fuel injection ensures consistent fuel delivery, resulting in seamless throttle response, while a responsive six-speed transmission ensures effortless access to the bike’s ample power for spirited riding.

In the pursuit of advancing an American classic like the Indian Scout, Indian Motorcycle directed its efforts towards three key objectives. Firstly, preserving the iconic design DNA of the Scout was paramount. The universally cherished aesthetic and style of the Indian Scout were upheld as sacrosanct. Secondly, Indian Motorcycle meticulously engineered the lineup to cater to the diverse needs of its ridership. Offering lightweight construction and a low seat height of 25.6 inches, the Scout ensures nimble handling and instills rider confidence. Thirdly, a significant emphasis was placed on integrating technology into the all-new Indian Scout. While rider-centric technology may not have been a priority a decade ago, it holds immense significance today. The 2025 model year lineup introduces a range of technology packages, catering to various budgets and providing riders with access to the industry’s most cutting-edge advancements.

Indian Motorcycle has announced the next evolution of its iconic Indian Scout.

Introducing a completely redesigned platform, meticulously crafted from the ground up, the 2025 Indian Scout lineup encompasses five distinct models with varying trim levels, ensuring there’s a style and price point to suit the diverse spectrum of riders.
