American motorcycle manufacturer, Indian Motorcycle has launched the new Indian Scout Bobber, the latest entrant to the Scout family.
The Scout Bobber will be available in the US 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.
The Indian Scout Bobber is more aggressive and muscular in its looks. The bike is designed by stripping down regular Scout and giving it black panels, new tyres and moulder leather seats.
The Scout Bobber is available in the choice of five shades - Bronze Smoke, Indian Motorcycle Red, Star Silver Smoke, Thunder Black, and Thunder Black Smoke.
The Scout Bobber is powered by the same 1131 cc, v-twin engine with peak power of 100 bhp and 97.7 Nm of torque and with a six-speed transmission.
A bobber originally called a 'bob-job' from the 1930s through 1990s, is a style of custom motorcycle. The typical construction includes stripping excess bodywork from a motorcycle; removing the front fender, and shortening the rear fender, which is "bobbed" (as in bob-tail), and all superfluous parts removed to reduce weight.
