2016 Indian Scout Sixty
Indian has released yet another model for 2016 calling it the Indian Scout Sixty where the name refers to the motorcycle’s 60 cubic inches of displacement in a 60-degree V-Twin. The Sixty is a more introductory level Scout that opens more doors for Indian in the global market. It runs on a 999cc engine and is claimed to produce the most power in its class with a peak 78 hp and 65 lb-ft of torque at 5800 rpm. In addition to its 60 cubic inch engine, the Indian Scout Sixty runs a five-speed gearbox. he blacked-out model in question features a black aluminum frame and swingarm, a black seat, and gloss black cast wheels. Beyond that, the 2016 Scout Sixty sources the same cast aluminum frame, 41mm fork, dual rear shocks, and braking package as the standard Scout. Unlike the new Scouts, ABS is not an option.
