2020 Indian Scout Bobber Sixty First Look

Stripped down old school styling for just $9,000

There’s another bobber in town; the Indian Scout Bobber Sixty. It’s a slightly smaller, lighter, and less expensive version of the 1100cc Scout Bobber.

Indian Motorcycle was rewarded with positive results when it offered a smaller version of its original Scout, the Scout Sixty, so the company is hoping to repeat its success by introducing Scout Bobber Sixty.

The 999cc Scout Bobber Sixty offers the same feet-forward, aggressive riding position as the 1133cc Scout Bobber. But starting at just $8,999, riders can get a 24-pound lighter stripped-down old school cruiser for a $2,000 savings.

Powered by the same 78-horsepower engine as the Scout Sixty, the Scout Bobber Sixty’s light weight and nimble handling along with its low center of gravity will appeal to riders looking to move up from their beginner small-displacement motorcycles without being overwhelmed. Confident new riders will even find this bike to be an ideal first motorcycle to start on.

Weighing just 548 pounds with a full tank of gas, the Scout Bobber Sixty offers riders an easy-to-handle motorcycle with a low 25.6 inch seat height.

To set the Bobber Sixty apart from its siblings Indian blacked-out the engine, and added a modern tank logo, stripped down headlight, all black seat, and new five-spoke black wheels.

Bobbers are a style of motorcycle that essentially “strips” all unnecessary parts off the motorcycle in an effort to make it lighter, faster, and less expensive. To “bob” a motorcycle, customizers traditionally remove the front fender to use it as the rear fender, and sometimes headlights, mirrors, and passenger seats are removed or made as small and light as possible. You won’t find any chrome on a true bobber as well.

Obviously, Indian isn’t going to remove essential safety features such as the headlight and mirrors, but it does a great job keeping fenders short and parts small and blacked out for a minimalistic look.

The Bobber Sixty’s brake light is integrated into the turn signals that are mounted on the short rear fender for a clean stripped look.

The mirrors on the Bobber Sixty are in the traditional place—a perch mount—as opposed to the Scout Bobber’s bar end mirrors. Some people have trouble seeing what’s behind them in bar-end mirrors, so this is a welcome change.

In true bobber style, the Scout Bobber Sixty comes with a tiny solo seat.

Riders looking to customize their Scout Bobber Sixty can do so by selecting from more than 140 authentic Indian Motorcycle accessories. This bigger “comfort” seat, passenger seat, and backrest will be a welcome upgrade for owners who need a little more “cush” than the stock seat provides.

The Indian Scout Sixty is offered in Thunder Black and Thunder Black Smoke (flat black) with ABS and non-ABS versions.

Available in dealerships now, Indian’s Click.Deliver.Ride program allows riders to purchase and take delivery of an Indian motorcycle without leaving their home.
