Also for 2020, Indian Motorcycle is introducing a selection of new Scout touring accessories, including a color- matched quick release fairing with a two-inch windshield and weather resistant, semi-rigid, quick release saddlebags. New Indian Motorcycle performance accessories include a Stage 1 Shorty slip-on muffler kit and an all-new 2-into-1 full exhaust system, both of which will modify the look of the bike, while providing a significant performance upgrade. "The Indian Scout has stood the test of time as one of the most influential, iconic and recognizable motorcycles in the world," said Reid Wilson, Vice President for Indian Motorcycle. "100 years is an incredibly special milestone, I and it made perfect sense to honor the 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. In celebration of the Scout's 100th birthday, Indian Motorcycle has created a premium and collectible Scout 100th Anniversary model, limited to 750 produced globally." The special anniversary edition takes styling cues from the original Scout, highlighted by its striking paint scheme of Indian Motorcycle Red with Anniversary Gold trim, and color- matched Scout 100th Anniversary badge. The bike's finishing touches 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. As a limited edition commemorative model, pricing for the Scout 100th Anniversary starts at $15,999. "The 'Twenty' in Scout Bobber Twenty also pays homage to the original 1920 Scout, as do several of the bike's unique features, including wire wheels and a floating saddle. The 2020 Scout Bobber Twenty delivers a meaner, 'old school' bobber style with improved ergonomics. Scout Bobber Twenty features an old school mix of chrome and blacked-out finishes, 10-inch ape hanger handlebars and comes in three colors, with pricing starting at $11,999 for non-ABS and $12,899 for ABS." In addition to the two new heritage- inspired Scout models, the 2020 Scout line-up also includes the return of the Scout, Scout Sixty and Scout Bobber. All 2020 Scouts receive key feature upgrades, including floating rotors, new calipers and master cylinders for improved braking performance. All Scout Bobbers will receive new Pirelli MT60RS tires, while the 2020 Scout Continues on page 8 >>> ‘SourKraut’ Jordan Dixon scooped 8th place in the Avon Freestyle class at the 2018 'AMD', and with it the honor of being top American placed builder with this 1947 EL - a vision of a concept bike of the time that never happened.
