Been flirting with getting a Scout for a while. Tried out Triumph and the Speedmaster-- loved it. Not quite as nice a build as Indian, though. My wife learned to ride and started drooling all over Scouts. Yesterday, I bought a 2017 60. Never rode one. We were a good hour from home and I got to ride highway, backroads, and windy roads through the mountains...and a little city stop and go. I rode my Chieftain to the dealer so I could leave it for the recall fix and a new front fender, so I had a quality ride fresh in my memory. My Chieftain has cams, PV3, no cats, etc. It is a dog compared to the 60! Any speed. Roll-ons at 60 and 70 mph would have left the Chieftain in the dust. Wow. First and second gear are AWESOME! I took her up to just shy of a ton. After all the MANY complaints I have read about the crappy seat and poor suspension, and the monkey/football thing, I was prepared for the worst. I found the seat comfortable during the 1.5 hours I sat on it. I purposefully hit the worst bumps, tar snakes and road imperfections, constantly, so I could advise my wife on it. Yes, the suspension is firmer than the Chieftain, but the ride was excellent and I never had a bone-jarrimg encounter. The bike was rock solid through everything I threw at it. This 60 has Crusher pipes, Pirelli Night Dragons....and I don't know if it has a new intake or not. The tires are brand new and I spun them several times while nailing 1st gear. Seriously -- I was looking at the "full sized" Scout and the FTR, thinking the 60 was a "beginner bike" as so many have said --- but not any more! I am impressed! I wish it was a bit taller. I was comfortable -- I am 5' 10" and 160 lbs (down from about 200!) and it fit me like a glove. I just didn't like being so low to the ground, but no big deal. I like the hooligan kits available. I have over 30 years riding experience on everything from rice rockets to Ducs, Harley, Victory & Yamaha. Anyone wanting an exciting bike to ride that costs HALF of some others that is cheap to upgrade, should try a 60. My hat's off to Indian on this one.
