Receiving a mid-model update for the coming year are the 2019 Indian Motorcycle Scout and Scout Bobber, which come in new colours. For the Indian Scout, colour options are Thunder Black, Deep Water Metallic, Metallic Jade, Indian Motorcycle Red over Thunder Black and Willow Green over Ivory Cream.

Meanwhile, the rather more aggressively styled Indian Scout Bobber comes in Thunder Black, Thunder Black Smoke, White Smoke and Bronze Smoke for next year’s riding season. Of note is the inclusion of a USB charging port as standard, located next to the speedometer for charging the rider’s electronic devices.

Carrying a 1,133 cc liquid-cooled, DOHC, V-twin, the Scout mill produces 94 hp and 97 Nm of torque. Power gets to the ground via a six-speed gearbox and belt final drive.

“The iconic Indian Scout family is a favourite amongst riders across the globe,” said Reid Wilson, senior director for Indian Motorcycle. “Since the addition of the Scout Bobber in July 2017, we’ve continued to evolve our Scout offering to meet the tastes of various riders, whether they prefer the heritage-inspired look of Scout Sixty and Scout or the stripped-down, blacked-out attitude of Scout Bobber.

Current Indian Scout and Scout Bobber owners who wish to add the USB charging port to their steeds can purchase a kit which is compatible with Scouts going back to 2015 and any Scout Sixty to 2016. In Malaysia, the 2017 Indian Scout retails for approximately RM108,000.
