Indian Motorcycle has announced its 2020 Scout lineup, including an array of new touring accessories and two special edition models celebrating 100 years of the Scout’s debut in 1920. Confirming our report from last week, the two models are the Indian Scout 100th Anniversary and the Indian Scout Bobber Twenty.
“The Indian Scout has stood the test of time as one of the most influential, iconic and recognizable motorcycles in the world,” said Reid Wilson, Vice President for Indian Motorcycle. “100 years is an incredibly special milestone, and it made perfect sense to honor Scout’s history and legacy with these two heritage-inspired 2020 models.”
In addition to the touring accessories, Indian is also offering a new stage 1 shorty slip-on muffler kit and a 2-into-1 full exhaust system
For 2020, all Scouts (including the Bobber and the Scout Sixty) will receive brake calipers, master cylinders and floating rotors. All 2020 Scout Bobber models will also now come with Pirelli MT60RS tires while the regular 2020 Scout gets a new sport seat and passenger pegs.
2020 Indian Scout 100th Anniversary
The 100th Anniversary Scout sports a special “Indian Motorcycle Red” color with “Anniversary Gold” trim and a desert tan leather solo seat to resemble the styling cues of the original 1920 Scout. Besides the paint, the anniversary model comes with black wire wheels, beach bars, a luggage rack and chrome finishes. Indian will only produce 750 units worldwide, with a US price of $15,999 (a $4,500 premium over the regular Scout).
