|The new Indian Scout, bedecked with accessories|
|“I think it’s f*ckin’ sweet,” said Rich Christoph, lead designer on the Scout.|
- The Scout out muscles the Yamaha XVS1300 (aka Star Stryker) by 28 horsepower.
- It beats the much larger Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 by 27 horsepower.
- It beats the the Suzuki Intruder 1500 by 22 horsepower.
- It beats the Triumph Thunderbird by 14 horsepower.
- It tops the Honda CB1100 EX by 12 horsepower.
- And it even manages to churn out 4 horsepower more than the much-heralded Moto Guzzi California, a model that landed on a number of publications’ best-of lists when it was re-launched a few years ago.
|I love the look of the exhaust.|
|I imagine those bags would look pretty cool after being distressed by British weather.|
|The more I look at it, the more I love it.|
(a) The longer it takes for the former to occur the more it will aid the latter, giving me time to save money.
(b) Typically, the numbers for dollars and pounds match up. That is to say, if something costs $100 in the United States it will cost £100 in the United Kingdom. That’s somewhat unfair to us because the pound is actually worth more than the dollar. So, that $100 item is costing us $160.
(c) I have a rumbling fear of this being a mistake. It seems to me the standard equipment blurb was cut and paste from that of the Chief Classic, because it also lists as standard a light bar and keyless start — two things the Scout most obviously does not have.
