INDIAN MOTORCYCLE BUILDS UPON A TIMELESS AMERICAN ICON, INTRODUCES THE NEXT EVOLUTION OF INDIAN SCOUT



All-New 2025 Indian Scout Lineup Delivers Unique Combination of Iconic American Design, Legendary Balance of Power & Control, and New Rider-Centric Technology
  • Five Models, Including Scout Bobber, Sport Scout, Scout Classic, Super Scout, and 101 Scout, and Three Diverse Trim Levels Offer a Robust Lineup with Varying Price Points
  • 2025 Indian Scout Lineup Introduces All-New SpeedPlus Engine – A 1250cc Liquid-Cooled, V-Twin Delivering up to 111 Horsepower
  • New Steel Tube Frame Delivers Timeless Style and Makes for Easier Customization
  • Lightweight, Nimble Handling, and Low Seat Height Delivers Balanced Ride and Inspires Confidence
  • Full Line of Over 100 Scout Family Accessories Offer Convenient Personalization Across Entire Lineup

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – April 2, 2024 Indian Motorcycle, America’s First Motorcycle Company, today introduced the next evolution of the iconic Indian Scout. Leveraging authentic Scout DNA, the all-new 2025 Indian Scout lineup builds upon its unparalleled history with five models, three trim levels, and more than 100 Scout family accessories for endless personalization. With roots celebrating Indian Motorcycle’s rich history, the new Scout family delivers a unique combination of iconic American design, a legendary balance of power and control, and new rider-centric technology.



Developed from extensive rider research and insights, the Indian Scout offers confidence-inspiring performance, usable technology, and class-leading rider amenities. Featuring the industry’s lowest seat height, the Indian Scout delivers a confident riding position, as well as sporty and stable handling. ABS across the entire lineup instills rider confidence and increases braking ability, while Traction Control and Ride Modes on select models offer a tailored riding experience at the touch of a button.



“Scout is the most iconic American cruiser of all time and is synonymous with the Indian Motorcycle brand,” said Mike Dougherty, President for Indian Motorcycle. “As our top-selling platform, Scout has long been a staple in our lineup. And while riders around the world love the current Scout offering, we’re 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.”



“Having the opportunity to lead the design efforts for the next evolution of Scout is a dream come true,” said Ola Stenegard, Director of Product Design for Indian Motorcycle. “Our top priority was to uphold the iconic namesake of Scout and ensure the new lineup is as timeless as all its predecessors. For 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.”



At the heart of the all-new Indian Scout is a completely redesigned 1250cc liquid-cooled, V-Twin engine – the SpeedPlus 1250. Delivering up to 111 horsepower and north of 82 lbs.-ft. of torque, each Indian Scout offers crisp acceleration and superior passing power. Electronic fuel injection provides consistent fueling for smooth throttle response, while a responsive six-speed transmission keeps all the power easily within reach for sporty riding.



“Scout is a beloved model and the most iconic and historic of our lineup, resonating with all types of riders, men and women, from all over the world,” said Ben Lindaman, Product Director for Indian Motorcycle. “Since launching the current Scout 10 years ago, the midsized cruiser segment has evolved. After conducting tons of research, rider insights drove our developments that prioritized the Scout’s iconic styling, its class-leading performance, and new rider-centric technology.”



To evolve an American icon like Indian Scout, Indian Motorcycle focused its efforts in three areas. First and foremost, the new Scout must uphold its legendary design DNA. Unanimously, riders love the look and style of the Indian Scout. Next, Indian Motorcycle engineered the lineup to meet the needs of its diverse group of riders. Light weight and a low seat height of 25.6-inches offers nimble handling and inspires rider confidence. The third priority when engineering the all-new Indian Scout was technology. While rider-centric technology wasn’t a priority for riders 10 years ago, it is today. The new 2025 model year lineup offers a variety of technology packages – providing riders with a wide price range and the opportunity to select a ride with the industry’s most cutting-edge technology.



A completely new platform, built from the ground up, the 2025 Indian Scout lineup is comprised of five models with trim levels – ensuring there’s a style and price point for its diverse mix of riders.



Model Lineup

Stripped down with an aggressive stance and raw power, the Scout Bobber is the perfect expression of iconic bobber style. Blacked out front to back with chopped bobber fenders and headlight nacelle, it leans hard into a mean bobber vibe. A solo bobber-style seat reinforces a minimalist bobber aesthetic—without trading comfort—and firmly plants riders in control under hard acceleration. Slammed two-inch suspension creates a low stance for an aggressive, custom look. Bar-end mirrors give the bike a cut down and clean look with improved visibility.

Inspired by history but redesigned for the style of today, the Sport Scout gives a more aggressive spirit to the Scout lineup. Stylish gloss black six-inch moto style risers with machine highlights come standard. Machined triples and moto handlebars complete the package, both in custom looks and dialed ergonomics that fit its menacing style with improved reach and control for aggressive riding. The sport-style seat provides riders more back support and comfort to ride longer and harder, without compromising the bike’s sleek style. The quarter fairing gives the Sport Scout a stylish and custom look straight from the factory, while also providing protection from the wind. The 19-inch front wheel adds to the aggressive nature of the Sport Scout – both in style and agile handling.

The Scout Classic is where heritage-inspired design meets the needs of today’s American cruiser rider. Premium chrome, classic Indian Motorcycle flared fenders, and flawless paint will turn heads at every intersection. Wire wheels add to the timeless, authentic style. A low seat height and relaxed ergonomics makes for an easy, confident ride at every speed, whether commuting or going on a weekend trip.

When the goal is to hit the open road, riders must ensure no corners are cut or details overlooked. Built for any type of riding, saddlebags, wire wheels, windshield, and passenger pillion all come standard. Super Scout’s saddlebags allow riders to effortlessly carry essentials and offer simple ease of use with a quick pull tab. The quick-release windshield comes off in seconds for a different look, while its three inches of suspension travel increases comfort to ride longer and farther. Premium chrome finishes and flawless paint add to the timeless styling born from the Indian Scout’s heritage.

Indian 101 Scout

Rooted in history as one of the greatest motorcycles ever made, the Indian 101 Scout is purpose built to be the highest performing Scout Indian Motorcycle has ever offered. When it comes to capability and style, the Indian 101 Scout resets the bar for American V-Twin cruisers. With adjustable piggyback rear shocks, inverted adjustable front forks, and dual disk Brembo® brakes, the Indian 101 Scout is packed with premium components that make a statement about the rider’s ability to go fast. A custom-stitched, gunfighter-style solo seat provides premium comfort to match the bike’s premium performance – delivering unrivaled rider confidence. Up top, stylish gloss black six-inch moto style risers with machine highlights, machined triples and moto handlebars tie it all together, with custom appeal and purposeful ergonomics that fit its aggressive character. Exacting attention to detail finishes the look with 101 Scout badging and exclusive paint and graphics.



Trim Levels

New for model year 2025, the Indian Scout family is available with three technology trim levels. Standard Trim provides an offering at an attainable price point to get riders into the lineup, while the Limited Trim takes it to the next level and introduces rider-centric technology. At the top of the line, Limited +Tech Trim delivers the best-of-the-best, with the most ride-enhancing technology ever offered on an Indian Scout.



Standard

Starting the lineup are three models with standard equipment: Scout Classic, Scout Bobber, and Sport Scout. Each of these models come standard with ABS, new LED lighting, and an analog gauge with newly introduced fuel level and fuel economy readouts – perfect for riders looking to get into the all-new Scout lineup at a lower price point.



Limited

The Indian Scout’s Limited Trim adds to the Standard Trim with the premium badging and the next level of usable technology. Traction Control provides confident, predictable handling in all conditions, while Cruise Control improves comfort when traversing long, highway rides. A USB Charger keeps riders connected, while three selectable ride modes, including Sport, Standard, and Tour, allow riders to adjust throttle response to dial-in their ride experience. Riders can choose from Scout Classic Limited, Scout Bobber Limited, and Sport Scout Limited.



Limited +Tech

At the top of the line, Limited +Tech Trim delivers an unrivaled Indian Scout experience. Continuing to build upon Standard and Limited features, Limited +Tech Trim introduces Indian Motorcycle’s 4” Round Touchscreen Display Powered by RIDE COMMAND to the Scout platform. This display offers a GPS system with turn-by-turn navigation and point-to-point route planning, as well as weather and traffic overlay, configurable gauges, ride stats and more to enhance the riding experience. To not only elevate the ride but also ownership as well, unlock critical bike data with RIDE COMMAND+ connected services; Access industry-leading technology with Bike Health, Bike Locator and more so you can stay in tune with your Scout. Limited +Tech Trim also offers a push-button, keyless ignition, for convenient on-off capabilities and a premium experience. While standard on 101 Scout and Super Scout models, riders can level up when choosing Scout Classic, Scout Bobber, and Sport Scout models.



Scout Family Accessories

Versatility

Launching with a complete line of Scout family accessories, riders can personalize their bike to meet their individual riding preferences. Taking Scout personalization to an entirely new level, the Indian Scout’s all-new redesigned rear subframe delivers consistent fitment for accessories across the entire line. Over 100 family accessories offer unprecedented versatility and allow riders to tailor their bike’s style and dial-in personal comfort.



Comfort

Dialing in personal fitment of a new motorcycle is extremely important. Indian Motorcycle is excited to launch the all-new Indian Scout with everything a rider needs to improve comfort with 32 different ergonomic combinations. From a variety of handlebar options to reduced and extended reach seats, to mid-controls, riders can personalize their bike to fit their height and preferred riding position – allowing riders to ride longer and farther.



Style

The new Scout line of accessories features countless style options to allow riders to tailor their bike to match their personality. No matter the model or trim, riders can dramatically change the look and feel – creating a one-of-a-kind take on an iconic American motorcycle.



Accessory Collections

Curated to inspire personalization, Indian Motorcycle is introducing four Scout accessory collections. Each Indian Motorcycle accessory is sold individually – allowing riders to select exactly which parts they desire and continue to build over time. The four collections, including Commuter, Overnighter, Stealth, and Open Roads, deliver countless style, comfort, and protection accessory options.
