Indian Scout Bobber in showrooms by December

Indian Motorcycle has revealed the Scout Bobber developed by the Industrial Design team. Of late, it seems that the old-school-style bike makers are targeting "bobbers" - a custom motorcycle style that began in the 1930s featuring removal of excess bodywork and cut-down fenders.

The Scout Bobber features a black headlight nacelle, minimal engine covers, bar-end mirrors and vented exhaust shields.

The Scout Bobber will be available in the U.S. from September and is expected to be launched in India as well, with a slight premium over the Indian Scout's Rs 12.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) price.

United Kingdom inflation rate's unexpected drop takes pressure off BoE
But the latest figures will ease that pressure and analysts now see little likelihood of BoE rate hike next month. While the drop was below economists' expectations of 2.9%, CPI remained above the Bank of England's target of 2%.

A chopped rear fender, new LED stop/turn/tail lights and a side-mount license plate give the rear a clean look. The footpegs are now moved 1.5 inches closer to the rider, and the dirt-tracker handlebar positions the rider farther forward. The American spec version will get a classy side-mounted number plate and bar-end mirrors while the global variant will continue with the normal number plate and standard mirrors. The 2018 Indian Scout Bobber will be available in five shades namely Indian Motorcycle red, thunder black, thunder black smoke, star silver smoke and bronze smoke.

The Indian Scout Bobber is more aggressive and muscular in its looks.

Reduced rear suspension travel gives the Bobber a low-slung profile and its black wheels with chunky semi-knobby tires gives the bike plenty of attitude.

Dennis Hastert out of federal prison

"The new muscular Scout represents a core passion for motorcyclists - connecting to the road without a need for anything unnecessary", press materials read, offering "a tangible means of escape from a life that is so easily bogged down by commitments and a boatload of unnecessary 'stuff'".

Even more impressive was the debut, just a year later, of the Scout, a midsize cruiser powered by a liquid-cooled, 1,133cc (69ci) 60-degree V-twin with DOHC and four valves per cylinder that makes 100 horsepower and 72 lb-ft of torque (claimed, at the crank). The engine is coupled to a 6-speed gearbox. The motorcycle will go on sale in September 2017.
