When one thinks of motorcycle brands with an unparalleled heritage, it goes without saying that Indian Motorcycles are one of the first brands that spring to mind and they’ve wowed us here at Coolector HQ once again with their latest release, the astounding Limited Edition Scout 100th Anniversary Motorcycle. A celebration of one of their most iconic machines, this limited edition steed is impressive from a visual and performance perspective and for anyone looking to get their hands on a legend on two wheels, look no further.
The Indian Limited Edition Scout 100th Anniversary Motorcycle is one of a few new models that aim to pay homage to the 100-year legacy of the iconic Indian Scout – the Scout Bobber Twenty and the limited edition Scout 100th Anniversary. Also for 2020, Indian Motorcycle is introducing a selection of new Scout touring accessories, including a colour-matched Quick Release Fairing with a two-inch Windshield and weather resistant Semi-Rigid Quick Release Saddlebags.
On The Road Again
The Indian Scout is a cornerstone of the motorcycle industry and has stood the test of time as one of the most influential, iconic and recognisable motorcycles in the world and 100 years is an incredibly special milestone, and it made perfect sense to honour Scout’s history and legacy with these two heritage-inspired 2020 models. In 1919, Indian Motorcycle announced the world’s first Scout motorcycle with the 1920 model year Scout. As a celebration of the Scout’s 100th birthday, they have created a premium and collectible Scout 100th Anniversary model, limited to 750 produced globally.
The special anniversary edition from Indian Motorcycles takes its design inspiration and styling cues from the original Scout, highlighted by its eye-catching paint scheme of Indian Motorcycle Red with Anniversary Gold trim, and colour-matched Scout 100th Anniversary badge. The bike’s finishing touches are impressive to say the least and include a Desert Tan Genuine Leather Solo Saddle Seat, Black Wire Wheels, Beach Bars, Luggage Rack and chrome finishes to complete the heritage-inspired throwback styling.
In addition to the two new heritage-inspired Scout models, the 2020 Scout lineup also sees the return of Scout, Scout Sixty and Scout Bobber. All 2020 Scouts will be on the receiving end of some key feature upgrades, which will include floating rotors, new calipers and master cylinders for improved braking performance out on the road. All Scout Bobbers will receive new Pirelli MT60RS tyres, while the 2020 Scout features a Sport Seat and passenger pegs for enhanced comfort on those longer rides.
All About The Accessories
For riders who are wanting to tour on their Scout, Indian Motorcycle will be offering a handful of new accessories that will help the trip last a bit longer to keep the adventure vibe going. A brand new, colour-matched Quick Release Fairing with a two-inch Windshield is available for all model years of Scout and Scout Sixty and comes with the option to change to either a five-inch or seven-inch Windshield. To complete the touring package, riders can add the Solo Luggage Rack (available in chrome and now in gloss black) and a Solo Rack Bag.
Indian Motorcycles are one of our favourite bike brands here at The Coolector and this latest release is definitely a fitting tribute to one of their most iconic machines. For those who feel like honouring their accomplishments over the last 100 years, this limited edition steed will be the ideal means of doing exactly that and it will be available to take for a test-drive from their dealerships shortly.
