In its first major revamp since its 2015 debut, Indianís Scout cruiser platform is all-new from the ground up, and the 2025 lineup includes five models, including some with names that will be familiar to any fan of Indian history: Scout Bobber, Sport Scout, Scout Classic, Super Scout, and 101 Scout. Three trim levels will be available, as well as more than 100 dedicated accessories.

Headlining the new platform is the high-performance 101 Scout, seen here facing a 1920s 101 Scout.
At the heart of the Scout platform is a new engine called the SpeedPlus 1250. The V-Twin remains liquid-cooled but has been completely redesigned, punched out from 1,133cc to 1,250cc. Its bore goes up from 99m to 104mm, while its stroke remains at 73.6mm. Power goes up to 105 ponies and 82 lb-ft of torque, and the 101 Scout gets a bump to 111 hp.

The new Scouts feature an all-new 1,250cc V-Twin that pumps out as much as 111 hp. Also seen here is the new tubular-steel frame.
Also new is the Scoutís frame, switching from an aluminum design to a simpler steel-tube chassis intended to be easier to customize, similar to what Indian did with the Chief platform in 2021. It supplies a 61.5-inch wheelbase with a 29-degree rake and 4.8 inches of trail.

ďOur top priority was to uphold the iconic namesake of Scout and ensure the new lineup is as timeless as all its predecessors,Ē said Ola Stenegard, director of product design for Indian Motorcycle. ďFor us, it was imperative to keep it clean, follow the iconic lines of Scout, and create a package that offered seamless customization. To achieve this, it all started with the steel-tube frame and all-new V-Twin engine.Ē

The Super Scout is a light-duty touring machine equipped with a detachable windshield and saddlebags.
Indian says the Scoutís 25.6-inch seat height is the lowest in class. There are also new features and technology offered on certain Scout models and trim packages. All models except for the 101 Scout use a single 298mm front disc brake with a 2-piston caliper, and ABS is standard.

ďAs our top-selling platform, Scout has long been a staple in our lineup,Ē said Mike Dougherty, president of Indian Motorcycle. ďWeíre excited to take it to the next level and continue its evolution with a robust offering of models to meet the diverse needs of our global riding community.Ē

The Scout Classic has traditional styling withchrome trim and wire-spoke wheels. All Scouts except the Bobber have 3 inches of rear-suspension travel.The Scout Classic (starting at $13,999) lives up to its name with a traditional design that includes flared fenders, wire-spoke wheels, relaxed ergonomics, and flashes of chrome. Their ďas shippedĒ weights are 522 lb and 536 lb, respectively. Weíll have to wait to find out what their curb weights are when their diminutive 3.4-gallon fuel tanks are full.

The Sport Scout is thematically similar to the former Scout Rogue. Itís pictured here with saddlebags that are part of a robust line of accessories from Indian.
Reprising a model name from the 1930s, the Sport Scout (starting at $13,499) has a similar aggressive style as the former Scout Rogue, with a quarter fairing, 6-inch moto-style bar risers with machined highlights and a moto-style handlebar, machined triple clamps, along with a sport-style seat and a 19-inch front wheel.

Brakes are also high-end items, with a pair of 4-piston radial-mount Brembo front calipers pinching 320mm rotors. Like the Sport Scout, it has black moto-style risers and a moto-style handlebar, but the 101 Scout sets itself apart with a custom-stitched gunfighter-style solo seat and exclusive 101 Scout badging, paint, and graphics.

The Limited +Tech trim comes with a 4-inch TFT display with Ride Command capabilities.
The top-of-the-line Limited +Tech trim includes the Limited features and adds keyless ignition and Indianís 4-inch round touchscreen display with Ride Command that offers turn-by-turn navigation, point-to-point route planning, weather and traffic overlay, configurable gauges, ride stats, and optional Ride Command+ connected services. The Limited +Tech trim level adds $1,700 to the base pricing for the Scout Bobber, Scout Classic, and Sport Scout, and itís standard on the Super Scout and 101 Scout.
