Indian Motorcycle Unveils Model Year 2017 Line-Up

OK, can we just stop for a second and acknowledge how sexy the Scout’s new “Brilliant Blue over Pearl White with Fireball Red pinstripe” paint scheme is?

I mean, great googly moogly. I want one of these things in my living room, just so I can stare at it. At night I would cover it with a blanket and whisper, “I love you,” quietly enough that my wife wouldn’t hear.

The Scout’s new paint is just one of the minor tweaks being made to Indian Motorcycle’s 2017 line-up. Other bikes receive new paint, while the Roadmaster and Chieftain will be equipped with a new infotainment system, and the Scout and Scout Sixty get a handful of improvements designed to make them even more rider-friendly.

Those improvements include:

  • Recalibrated rear shocks
  • Improved looks for the wiring harness
  • A redesigned rear header exhaust pipe for more leg clearance
  • A swingarm bearing cover has been added on both sides
  • Increased steering lock for tighter radius circles
