2025 Indian Scout Review | First Look

2025 Indian Scout Lineup

In its first major revamp since its 2015 debut, Indian’s Scout cruiser platform is all-new from the ground up, and the 2025 lineup includes five models, including some with names that will be familiar to any fan of Indian history: Scout Bobber, Sport Scout, Scout Classic, Super Scout, and 101 Scout. Three trim levels will be available, as well as more than 100 dedicated accessories. 

2025 Indian 101 Scout
Headlining the new platform is the high-performance 101 Scout, seen here facing a 1920s 101 Scout.

At the heart of the Scout platform is a new engine called the SpeedPlus 1250. The V-Twin remains liquid-cooled but has been completely redesigned, punched out from 1,133cc to 1,250cc. Its bore goes up from 99m to 104mm, while its stroke remains at 73.6mm. Power goes up to 105 ponies and 82 lb-ft of torque, and the 101 Scout gets a bump to 111 hp.  

2025 Indian 101 Scout
The new Scouts feature an all-new 1,250cc V-Twin that pumps out as much as 111 hp. Also seen here is the new tubular-steel frame.

Also new is the Scout’s frame, switching from an aluminum design to a simpler steel-tube chassis intended to be easier to customize, similar to what Indian did with the Chief platform in 2021. It supplies a 61.5-inch wheelbase with a 29-degree rake and 4.8 inches of trail.

“Our top priority was to uphold the iconic namesake of Scout and ensure the new lineup is as timeless as all its predecessors,” said Ola Stenegard, director of product design for Indian Motorcycle. “For us, it was imperative to keep it clean, follow the iconic lines of Scout, and create a package that offered seamless customization. To achieve this, it all started with the steel-tube frame and all-new V-Twin engine.” 

2025 Indian Super Scout
The Super Scout is a light-duty touring machine equipped with a detachable windshield and saddlebags.

Indian says the Scout’s 25.6-inch seat height is the lowest in class. There are also new features and technology offered on certain Scout models and trim packages. All models except for the 101 Scout use a single 298mm front disc brake with a 2-piston caliper, and ABS is standard.  

2025 Indian Scout Bobber

“As our top-selling platform, Scout has long been a staple in our lineup,” said Mike Dougherty, president of Indian Motorcycle. “We’re excited to take it to the next level and continue its evolution with a robust offering of models to meet the diverse needs of our global riding community.” 

2025 Indian Scout Models

2025 Indian Scout Bobber
The Scout Bobber is the cheapest way to get into the Scout lineup, with prices starting at $12,999.

The least expensive version is the Scout Bobber, with prices starting at $12,999. It’s a low, stripped-down model with chopped fenders, blacked-out styling, bar-end mirrors, and slammed 2-inch rear suspension.

2025 Indian Scout Classic
The Scout Classic has traditional styling with
chrome trim and wire-spoke wheels. All Scouts except the Bobber have 3 inches of rear-suspension travel.

The Scout Classic (starting at $13,999) lives up to its name with a traditional design that includes flared fenders, wire-spoke wheels, relaxed ergonomics, and flashes of chrome. Their “as shipped” weights are 522 lb and 536 lb, respectively. We’ll have to wait to find out what their curb weights are when their diminutive 3.4-gallon fuel tanks are full.  

2025 Indian Sport Scout
The Sport Scout is thematically similar to the former Scout Rogue. It’s pictured here with saddlebags that are part of a robust line of accessories from Indian.

Reprising a model name from the 1930s, the Sport Scout (starting at $13,499) has a similar aggressive style as the former Scout Rogue, with a quarter fairing, 6-inch moto-style bar risers with machined highlights and a moto-style handlebar, machined triple clamps, along with a sport-style seat and a 19-inch front wheel. It weighs 528 lb as shipped.

2025 Indian Super Scout

The Super Scout mirrors the theme of the Super Chief, equipped for the open road with a quick-release windshield, saddlebags, a passenger seat, and 3 inches of rear suspension travel. Like the Scout Classic, it has chrome finishes and wire-spoke wheels. It’s the heaviest Scout at 571 lb, and prices start at $16,499.

2025 Indian 101 Scout
2025 Indian 101 Scout in Sunset Red Metallic

Resurrecting another legendary model name from Indian’s past, the 101 Scout packs more performance than any production Scout ever made. Its fully adjustable suspension consists of an inverted fork and piggyback rear shocks. Brakes are also high-end items, with a pair of 4-piston radial-mount Brembo front calipers pinching 320mm rotors. Like the Sport Scout, it has black moto-style risers and a moto-style handlebar, but the 101 Scout sets itself apart with a custom-stitched gunfighter-style solo seat and exclusive 101 Scout badging, paint, and graphics. Prices start at $16,999.  

2025 Indian Scout Trim Packages and Accessory Collections

Three trim levels are available for certain models, starting with the Standard trim package, which includes ABS, new LED lighting, and an analog gauge with new fuel level and fuel economy readouts for the Scout Bobber, Scout Classic, and Sport Scout. Upgrading to the Limited trim level ($700) on those models adds selectable ride modes (Sport, Standard, and Tour), traction control, cruise control, and a USB charging port. 

2025 Indian 101 Scout
The Limited +Tech trim comes with a 4-inch TFT display with Ride Command capabilities.

The top-of-the-line Limited +Tech trim includes the Limited features and adds keyless ignition and Indian’s 4-inch round touchscreen display with Ride Command that offers turn-by-turn navigation, point-to-point route planning, weather and traffic overlay, configurable gauges, ride stats, and optional Ride Command+ connected services. The Limited +Tech trim level adds $1,700 to the base pricing for the Scout Bobber, Scout Classic, and Sport Scout, and it’s standard on the Super Scout and 101 Scout.  

Along with the five models and three trim levels, Indian will offer more than 100 accessories to enhance versatility, style, and comfort (including 32 ergonomic combinations). There are also four new accessory collections. 

2025 Indian Scout Classic Overnighter

The Overnighter Collection is for travelers, and it includes the Solo Luggage Rack, All-Weather Vinyl Tail Bag, 20-inch Quick Release Touring Windshield, and Touring Saddlebags.​ 

2025 Indian Scout Classic Commuter

The Commuter Collection includes the Syndicate Seat, Pathfinder 5.75-inch Adaptive LED Headlight, Pinnacle Mirrors, RAM X-Grip Phone Mount, Mid Foot Controls, and Passenger Pegs.​

The Stealth Collection adds aggressive style and functionality with Sleek Smoked Turn Signals, Moto Handlebar with 10-inch risers, Radial RS Mirrors by Rizoma, Bobber Saddlebags, Blacked-Out Levers, and the Pathfinder LED Headlight. 

2025 Indian Super Scout Open Roads

Indian Scout Teaser Video Released

Indian Scout Teaser Video

Indian Motorcycle is set to release a new Indian Scout or Scouts on April 2, and it has been teasing us with a few videos that hadn’t revealed much of anything. But today it posted a new video (see below) that shows a group of five bikes riding across a desert lakebed.

Sadly, the low light in the video doesn’t provide enough illumination to reveal many details, but there appears to be four different variants of the new Scout. For reference, Indian’s current Scout lineup consists of three main models: the classically styled Scout, the stubby Scout Bobber, and the mini-faired Scout Rogue.

In the video, the leading trio of bikes have low-mounted bar-end mirrors, while the rearmost bikes are differentiated by chrome mirrors perched atop their handlebars. Of the trailing pair, the one on the right displays a smallish windshield that suggests some sort of light-duty touring version. The one on the left could be a traditional Scout of some form.

Leading the group is a bike with a mini fairing topped with a small windscreen that looks similar to the bike on its left. One or both could be a new version of the Scout Rogue. The bike second from the left has no fairing and could be a model similar to the existing Scout Bobber.

At this point, we can only speculate based on what we see in the video, so we can’t say what could be inside them regarding their engines or chassis modifications. Full details will be released on April 2. Stay tuned!

2024 Indian Roadmaster Elite Review | First Look 

2024 Indian Roadmaster Elite

Indian Motorcycle has added to its high-end Elite lineup with the 2024 Roadmaster Elite. Like other models in this Elite program, the Indian Roadmaster Elite includes premium features and a custom paint scheme, and it’s limited to only 350 units worldwide. 

2024 Indian Roadmaster Elite

The Indian Roadmaster Elite first draws the eye with its dazzling tri-tone Indian Motorcycle Red paint scheme. This paint scheme honors the Indian Motorcycle Red paint first seen in 1904. For 2024, Indian Motorcycle partnered with paint shops Gunslinger Custom Paint in Colorado and Custom Painted Vehicles in Wisconsin to ensure the highest-quality finishes. Each motorcycle will also include an exclusive Elite badging with an individually numbered center console and a silhouette of a 1904 Indian Camelback, the bike that first received the Indian Motorcycle Red paint.

“Our Elite models take the incredibly high bar we set for all of our products, and raise it even higher, offering something more exclusive for the rider who wants to make sure their bike is a cut above anything else on the road,” said Aaron Jax, vice president for Indian Motorcycle. “What I love about the new Roadmaster Elite is how we’ve taken the historic Indian Motorcycle Red and given it a tougher, meaner attitude with blacked-out styling.” 

2024 Indian Roadmaster Elite

The tri-tone paint includes Indian Motorcycle Red Candy, Dark Indian Motorcycle Red Candy, and Black Candy, along with handpainted Championship Gold pinstripes, and each bike takes more than 24 hours to complete. 

2024 Indian Roadmaster Elite

“Our design team is always thrilled to work on the Elite models, because we’re essentially given the keys to design our very own custom bike, but instead of just one, hundreds will be available around the world,” said Ola Stenegard, director of product design for Indian Motorcycle. “With each new Elite model, we pull through custom bike trends to create something that’s not only current and relevant, but authentically aligns with the Indian Motorcycle brand and complements each model’s inherent DNA.” 

See all of Rider‘s Indian coverage here.

2024 Indian Roadmaster Elite

Aside from top-notch paint jobs, Indian’s Elite collection also includes premium features and components from the brand. The 2024 Indian Roadmaster Elite will include PowerBand Audio with Bass Boost & UnderGlow, which was introduced in 2023 and delivers 50% louder audio through 12 speakers in the front fairing, saddlebags, and touring trunk. Also included is the Pathfinder Adaptive LED Headlight, which improves visibility by adjusting illumination based on the bike’s lean angle. Pathfinder LED lights can also be found in the bike’s saddlebags to provide better visibility of the bike to other motorists. 

2024 Indian Roadmaster Elite

Other premium details on the 2024 Indian Roadmaster Elite include a gloss black painted dash, polished driver and passenger Indian headdress floorboards, a color-matched stitched heated and cooled seat, a tinted flare windshield, passenger arm rests, backlit switch cubes, and 10-spoke precision machined wheels. 

2024 Indian Roadmaster Elite

The 2024 Indian Roadmaster Elite will have an MSRP of $41,999 and will begin arriving in dealerships this spring. Find more information at the Indian Motorcycle website

Indian Challenger RR – 2022 King Of The Baggers Race Replica 

Indian Challenger RR Tyler O'Hara King of the Baggers
The Indian Challenger RR will be built to the same specifications as Tyler O’Hara’s King Of The Baggers championship-winning Challenger.

When you’ve got to have the baddest bagger on the block, Indian Motorcycle is now offering the Indian Challenger RR to the public. It’s built to the same specifications and by the same hands as the bike Tyler O’Hara raced to the 2022 King Of The Baggers championship. 

Related: 2023 Indian Motorcycle Lineup | First Look Review

Just 29 will be built, a nod to O’Hara’s #29 championship-winning bike, and they’re a near duplicate of the bike O’Hara rode during the 2022 season, including a hot-rodded V-Twin that likely produces in excess of 170 hp.  

Indian Challenger RR Tyler O'Hara King of the Baggers

“Originally, the thought of roadracing baggers was perplexing to many, and even downright offensive to some road racing purists,” said Gary Gray, Vice President of Racing, Technology, and Service for Indian. “But in just three short years, King Of The Baggers has emerged as the hottest thing in motorcycle racing as these bikes have rapidly evolved in their sophistication, and we thought it would be awesome to give people the opportunity to own the bike that holds the crown.” 

Related: 2023 Indian Sport Chief | First Ride Review

As you might expect with a race-tuned bagger, this motorcycle is not street legal, but it is a true racebike that will get your blood pumping on the track. As Gary Gray said, “Put in the right hands, it will reach the podium in MotoAmerica’s Mission King Of The Baggers race series.” 

Indian Challenger RR Tyler O'Hara King of the Baggers

Those courageous enough to own one will have to fork up $92,229, which sounds like a lot until you take a look at the extensive list of components and R&D that have gone into making the Challenger the class of the KOTB field.

2023 Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse 

2023 Jack Daniel's Limited Edition Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse

Indian Motorcycle and Jack Daniel’s have partnered up to create a special Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse. Limited to only 177 units, this hand-painted motorcycle takes inspiration from Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey and was co-developed with Klock Werks Kustom Cycles

Related: 2023 Indian Sport Chief | First Ride Review

A key feature that makes this motorcycle unique is the paint, which is Super Graphite Metallic with real Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 whiskey mixed in. The iconic whiskey brand further touches this bike in the Jack Daniel’s design elements throughout, such as Jack Daniel’s branding on the front and rear fenders, on the solo seat, and on a Montana Silversmiths Badge with each bike’s serial number. The Jack Daniel’s signature can also be found etched into the exhaust and on the rear fender. 

2023 Jack Daniel's Limited Edition Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse

“The Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse is yet another powerful and dynamic representation of the quality, craftsmanship and attention to detail that is core to both of our brands,” said Aaron Jax, Vice President for Indian Motorcycle. “This time, we decided to pay homage to Jack Daniel’s iconic Old No. 7 – the most iconic of Jack Daniel’s whiskeys – pairing it with the Chief Bobber Dark Horse. Both products are timeless American originals that share a combination of no-nonsense simplicity and premium quality.” 

2023 Jack Daniel's Limited Edition Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse

The whiskey-inspired styling is paired with the Indian “I” painted on the tank, and the Thunderstroke 116 engine features non-machined highlighted cylinders and heads and Cloud Silver-painted rockers and pushrod tubes for a vintage raw metal appearance. The bike is also equipped with white center rims, a tinted Klock Werks flared deflector, and a Pathfinder adaptive LED headlight, which monitors the bike’s lean angle to optimize nighttime illumination when cornering. The bike comes with three ride modes, a 4-inch TFT display with Ride Command, turn-by-turn navigation, ABS, cruise control, keyless ignition, and other premium features. 

2023 Jack Daniel's Limited Edition Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse

“At Jack Daniel’s we live by the motto, ‘Every day we make it, we’ll make it the best we can’,” said Greg Luehrs, Director of Sponsorships and Partnerships for Jack Daniel’s. “Indian Motorcycle shares that philosophy, which is why this partnership has been such a success.”

2023 Indian Sport Chief | First Look Review

Indian Motorcycle has announced details of the 2023 Indian Sport Chief, a bike the company says is its most aggressive iteration of the legendary Chief. 

2023 Indian Sport Chief

From a visual standpoint, a new quarter-fairing sets the Sport Chief apart, combined with a new moto-style bar with a machined triple clamp and 6-inch riser. Indian says this new bar, mid-mount foot controls, and a solo gunfighter seat put riders in a “commanding yet comfortable” riding position.  

Related: 2023 Indian Motorcycle Lineup | First Look Review

2023 Indian Sport Chief

The suspension and brakes of the Sport Chief get a major upgrade over previous Chief iterations. Indian bolted on the same front end as used on the Challenger bagger, including its 43mm KYB inverted fork and pair of Brembo 4-piston calipers biting 320mm rotors, which replace the Chief’s underwhelming single-disc setup.  

2023 Indian Sport Chief

Indian must’ve been listening when we said the 2022 Chief’s chassis was so solid and stable that it made us wish for more than just 28.5 degrees of lean angle and 3 inches of rear travel, because the new piggyback FOX shocks bump travel by an inch and lean angle by 1 degree.  

2023 Indian Sport Chief

Ola Stenegärd, director of Industrial Design for Indian Motorcycle, said that with the Sport Chief, the company wanted to maintain “the same care-free attitude and American muscle but elevate it even further with componentry that not only delivers a style and attitude that exudes performance but raises the bar entirely for performance cruisers.” 

2023 Indian Sport Chief

The Sport Chief features cast wheels (19 inches in the front, 16 in the rear) wrapped in Pirelli Night Dragon tires, a 4-gallon fuel tank, a bobbed rear fender, dual exhausts, LED lighting, keyless ignition, and three selectable ride modes: Sport, Standard, and Tour.  

2023 Indian Sport Chief

The new Sport Chief will boast the same blacked-out Thunderstroke 116 motor of the Dark Horse versions of the Chief, Chief Bobber, and Super Chief Limited, making a claimed 120 lb-ft of torque. When we tested the various iterations of the Chief in May 2021, the Thunderstroke 111 on the standard models offered ample power, but the 116 on the Dark Horses was even more satisfying. 

2023 Indian Sport Chief

As with the Dark Horse models, the Sport Chief offers a customizable 4-inch touchscreen powered by Ride Command that can also be accessed via handlebar controls. Riders can cycle through multiple interfaces, including two different gauge configurations, bike and ride information, and turn-by-turn navigation with optional connected features like weather and traffic overlays. Riders can also link up to a smartphone via Bluetooth or USB to access music and phone information, and incoming calls will appear and can be accepted or declined directly through the Ride Command system. 

2023 Indian Sport Chief

The Sport Chief is available in Black Smoke, Ruby Smoke, Stealth Gray, and Spirit Blue Smoke starting at $18,999. We’ll soon be taking it for a ride, so stay tuned for its road test report.

This bike was one of three Indian Motorcycle models that answered the American and Allied forces call to action.” 

“This collection was designed to celebrate our history as well as our passion to create what’s next for American Motorcycling,” celebrates Indian’s website

Indian Motorcycle® Sponsors 8th Annual Veterans Therapy Program with VCR

The Veterans Charity Ride (VCR) has just acquired its usual trusty sponsor for 2022 – and Indian Motorcycle® is more than happy to be a part of the non-profit’s 8th Annual Therapy Program for vets.

The program will purportedly involve 10-12 amputees, paraplegics and victims of PTSD – all veterans from our good country – that will be matched up for one-on-one treatment that includes mentors and fellow vets that have previously completed VCR’s program.

It’s a brilliant opportunity for our military men and women to use the Indin bikes provided and use the trips, memories made and thrills to ‘rehabilitate and support veterans returning from combat,’ supporting their ‘transition back to civilian life.’

“We are proud to say we have touched the lives of more than 150 veterans,” says Dave Frey, the Veterans Charity Ride Founder

“With a growing number of returning veterans still in need of VCR programming, we’re excited to expand and host three multi-day motorcycle therapy events.”

“VCR’s growth is a testament to Dave and Sue Frey, as they’ve made it their mission to positively impact the lives of the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country.”
