2015 INDIAN SCOUT IS FINALLY HERE!
THE LEGEND – REIMAGINED – ROARS INTO SINGAPORE
MAH Pte Ltd has unveiled in Singapore the legendary Indian Scout motorcycle, a contemporary yet classic interpretation of one of motorcycling’s most famous and coveted bikes.
The 2015 Indian Scout was introduced to a gathering of press, VIPs and industry leaders at a private preview held in the Indian Motorcycle showroom, which was opened only three months ago at Zervex Building in the heart of the Republic’s automotive industry in Ubi.
More about the Scout
Weighing in at a wet weight of 558 pounds – lightest in its class – the 2015 Indian Scout was derived from a clean sheet design, creating a potent and precise middle-weight cruiser that carries forward the spirit of innovation that made it one of the most storied bikes of all time.
Boasting advanced technologies, design and engineering innovations, it offers a breakthrough chassis design featuring a lightweight and rigid cast aluminium frame coupled with a low 25.3-inch seat height for exceptional comfort, balance and manoeuvrability.
Powered by a liquid-cooled, 69 cubic inch, 100 HP V-twin engine, the all-new 2015 Indian Scout is powerful yet approachable. Its low seat height, manoeuvrability and lightweight design makes the Scout appealing to riders of all sizes and experience levels while the high horsepower and superior handling make it a bike that will thrill even the most experienced riders.
This is the first truly new Indian Scout in more than 70 years and marks the return of the legendary bikes that conquered the infamous “Wall of Death” and carried the legendary “Indian Wrecking Crew” motorcycle race team to multiple victories. Technology and designs derived from Scout models played a significant role for Allied Forces in World War II and a 1920 Indian Scout earned the title of the “world’s fastest Indian” as proven by Burt Munro in 1967.
“The legend is finally here! We are delighted to present motorcycling enthusiasts in Singapore with the Indian Scout, a bike that has seen countless innovations, racing wins, world records, and industry firsts,” said Mr Eugene Mah, managing director of MAH Pte Ltd, the exclusive distributor for Indian Motorcycle in Singapore.
“It’s always a special feeling when you mount a motorcycle with so much history and such a strong heritage, yet carefully crafted with the latest technology and innovations. Riding the legendary Indian Scout just never gets old,” Mr Mah added.
The new Scout was designed from the ground up for a superb balance of comfort and control, delivering a superior riding performance for both newer and experienced riders.
It offers the look of a classic “rigid triangle” design that is synonymous with original Scouts, coupled with a set of premium coil over monotube rear shocks that deliver exceptional ride, handling and comfort. A 25.3 inch seat height, 61.5 inch wheelbase and 5.3 inch ground clearance, delivers a confidence-inspiring 31 degrees of lean angle and low centre of gravity, along with exceptional high and low speed maneuverability.
The Scout is adorned with a premium, genuine tan leather solo bucket seat, making the Indian and the only brand to offer this seating as standard.
The 2015 Indian Scout is powered by an all-new, 69 cubic inch V-twin engine that combines all the design, performance and reliability elements that made the original Scouts unbeatable and mates it with state-of-the-art components and modern technologies.
About the Powerplant:
• Liquid-cooled design for 100 HP of pure power, along with enhanced durability and reliability.
• Out of respect for the legendary Scouts of the 1920s, 30s and 40s, the 2015 Scout carries forward classic engine design cues with purposeful styling that honors both form and function.
• Closed loop fuel injection and drive-by-wire throttle actuation mated to a 6-speed overdrive transmission for peak torque of 72 ft./lbs. of torque at 5900 RPM.
