Default Surprize!!!

pretty good lookin scout especially at that price, should kill sportster sales if its problem free. less weight + good HP, a rever for sure. time will tell how it feels + handles but specs look promising, a real surprize for sure!!!

Ya know... the more I look at this bike the more I like it. It's probably a good thing I can't afford one right now because I don't like buying the first year of any vehicle. I might just have to make the 2 hour ride up to Las Vegas to give one a spin when they come in though.

I REALLY expected to see the water cooled motor go on a Vic.....not in the Indian line.

In my opinion....nobody wanting an Indian is going to take a second look at it......it doesnt fit in with the rest of the line and image.

.....should have been air cooled. Should have reigned in the styling a bit more.

That bike should have been a Victory......it dont belong under the Indian badge.

I think it is a very cool looking bike but agree that it would have fit better under the Victory name plate. Maybe a sign of things to come for Victory down the road.

Well the debate is settled regarding using the 111 TS or slapping a smaller engine in it. Looks like the smaller engine won. So far I'm unimpressed with Indian.
