    2015 Indian Scout

    So....100 hp is for "riders of all skill levels" now? Intriguing.

    I still can't decide if I like it or not.

    A 100hp "beginner" bike doesn't make much sense to me either.

    It makes perfect sense if the only thing that you have to sell are 100 hp bikes.

    Very nice looking motorcycle ... unique ... and priced the same as the XL1200 Sportsters ... smart move on Indian's part! 100HP is NO beginnerbike ... but I'd love to try one out!

    The front fender looks like it's on backwards. Either that or it's intended to be swapped for the rear fender.

    Everything between the fenders/under the seat & tank looks overly industrial, it looks like the original V-Max motor has been unseated for least visually appealing.

    I thought the Triumph Rocket had that dubious distinction.

    Only on the left side...the right side is masked by head pipes but the left is made worse by that cancerous growth above it on the tank. Like the V-Max, the new Scout mill begs to be covered with fairing--- kind of like "double bagger" girlfriends where you wear a bag over your head while kissing just in case hers falls off.

    Video & first ride review is up on CW for those interested.

    I'm not sure what the proper modern design for a 60 year-old model should be, but this one doesn't bother me. The price isn't ridiculous and the speedo isn't on the tank. The pegs are almost in the right place.

    I just wonder if the Victory Judge makes sense with this at 11 grand.
