The Indian Scout sees a return to the company's lineup after a lengthy 66-year period. During its initial years of sale between 1920 and 1949 it was one of the top most selling motorcycles for the company. It seems to be following the same trend after its relaunch, globally as well as in India, where the current Indian Motorcycle's dealer has received more than 50 bookings for the motorcycle in less than six months.
