    2020 Indian Scout Bobber Sixty Confirmed In Certification Documents

    Indian is preparing to release a 1000cc version of the Scout Bobber, or, to look at it another way, a bobber version of the Scout Sixty. The new variant was recently certified by both the California Air Resources Board and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as the 2020 Indian Scout Bobber Sixty, which, as if it weren’t confusing enough, will have a smaller version of the engine powering the anniversary edition Indian Scout Bobber Twenty.

    While we wrap our heads around the math of 20 > 60, it’s relatively easy to figure out what to expect from the Scout Bobber Sixty. The regular Scout Sixty is similar to the Scout, only with a 1000cc V-Twin engine (versus 1133cc) and a five-speed transmission (compared to the Scout’s six gears). The Scout Sixty lacks the Scout’s passenger seating, as well as the chromed highlights on the engine and wheels.

    It stands to reason that the Scout Bobber Sixty will likewise be similar to the Scout Bobber, but with blacked out cylinder heads and a five-speed gearbox. The Bobber Sixty will likely get the same truncated fenders and lowered suspension, low profile seat, headlight, handlebars and foot pedal positions of the Scout Bobber.

    Expect the Scout Bobber Sixty to look like the Bobber but with black cylinder heads.
    The CARB executive order confirms the Bobber Sixty’s five-speed transmission, as well as a Stage 1 intake and/or exhaust upgrade as well as a Stage 1 intake and/or 2-into-1 exhaust upgrade. Beyond that, neither the CARB or EPA certification documents provide any useful details, though we can’t rule out any other changes Indian may introduce for the Scout Sixty Bobber.

    The Scout Sixty is priced at $8,999, or $2,500 less than the 1133cc Scout. The Scout Bobber has an MSRP of $10,999, which means we expect the 2020 Indian Scout Bobber Sixty to come in around $8,499, barring any surprises.

    Makes sense really. Just to use the 999cc version 60 motor and trans in the Bobber. Reduced price from normal Bobber will help with cost affordability too. Smart move.

    Good looks and affordability- usually a winning combination.

    Of course it's not. Its the Bobber model with the Scout 60 motor. Lower cc's than the standard Bobber, 999cc in this one. Lower price, equates to more entry level into Indian buyers, Sheeez

    We've discussed this in the past. There are really only 7 Indian models (frame/rake/fairing), the rest are derivative. One more time (with updates for the new stuff)
    -Scout
    -FTR
    -Chief
    -Vintage
    -Springfield
    -Chieftain
    -Challenger

    By the way, it occurs to me that there's too many here to be viable, at the low volume sold. I'd probably combine the Chief/Vintage/Springfield (move to common geometry) and get down to 5.
