Indian Motorcycles has finally launched the Scout Bobber in India at ₹ 12.99 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Scout Bobber is essentially the same as the standard Scout, but gets a sexier, evocative design. The Indian is shod with knobbly tyres, chopped fenders, flat-track style handlebar, leather seats and all of it wrapped in dark shades and blacked out bits. The tyres actually lend solid muscle to the overall look of the bike. The headlamp is surrounded by a chrome nacelle while the alloy wheels have been blacked out as well. The footpegs of the bike have been re-positioned to offer a tad more committed riding posture, which goes with the overall theme of the bike.

The bike also gets a bold new badge with block letters on the fuel tank along with new engine covers. The smaller bar-end mirror adds to the retro charm of the bike. The telescopic forks up front are new and the rear suspension too gets a different tune and the travel has been lowered by 45 mm. The power comes from a liquid-cooled V-twin engine that makes around 99 bhp and 97.6 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. The engine will be mated to a six-speed gearbox. The mechanicals remain the same as the regular Scout. The company has already started taking bookings for the Indian Scout Bobber for ₹ 50,000. The deliveries should begin in the next couple of weeks. The bike will be brought to India as a completely built unit (CBU).
