Indian Motorcycle recently unveiled their latest offering called Indian Scout and with the new model, Indian has made owning its motorcycles a lot affordable. The Scout carries the lowest price tag of all the Indian motorcycles available in the market but looks nothing less than an exquisite piece of art in a museum.

The Indian Motorcycle company revived after hibernating for too long and the name, ‘Scout’ brings back the memories of a machine used to sell in the middle of last century, which would be like the 1950s. The platform of the Scout is developed from ground-up and it is a first all-new platform from the American company in 50 years.
