The Indian Scout Bobber has been spied in the country, ahead of its official launch on November 24 at the 2017 India Bike Week.
As per Express Drives’ source, the motorcycle bears a price tag of INR 13.95 lakhs, ex-showroom Ahmedabad. The Indian Scout Bobber is essentially a stripped-down, blacked-out version of the Scout. In the Bobber, the company has lowered the rear springs by an inch; added street tracker handlebars and moved the rider footpegs 1.5 inch closer to the rider for a more aggressive riding position. The front and rear fenders are also chopped, and the cast aluminium wheels are shod with knobby tyres for a rugged look. The motorcycle also features bar-end mirrors to complete the Bobber look.
Powering the Indian Scout Bobber is the same 1,133cc V-twin engine with liquid cooling. The powerplant is capable of producing 95.1 PS of power; and 97 Nm of torque at 5,600 rpm. The engine works in tandem with a 6-speed transmission.
Coming to the suspension bits, the bike uses cartridge style telescopic front fork, and twin rear shock absorbers. Brakes include 298 mm front and rear disc, both with ABS. The 16-inch alloy wheels are shod with 130-section front and a 150-section rear knobby tyres.
The bookings for the bike is already open for a token amount of INR 50,000. When launched, the Indian Scout Bobber will rival the Triumph Bonneville Bobber, and Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber.
