Indian Debuts an All-New Scout for 2025

Indian Motorcycles

The Scout, Indian’s top-selling model, has been a staple of the motorcycle brand’s revival since parent company Polaris reintroduced the name in 2015. For 2025, the entire Scout lineup will receive a complete refresh—that means five models with three trim levels, all getting some attention. Here are the highlights.

The main talking point is the new SpeedPlus engine. Displacing 1250cc, it’s a V-twin that packs the most power of any Indian powerplant thus far, with 105 horses for all models (except the 101 Scout, which packs a healthy 111 horsepower). The engine’s electronic fuel injection will allow for a flat torque curve, and should pair well with the bike’s six-speed gearbox. ABS is standard on all models, and select trims get multiple rider-selectable traction control along with ride modes that alter the tuning to suit individual tastes.

That new powerplant fits into a tried-and-true steel frame, as the design team was focused on integrating the history of the century-old model into the future. “Our top priority was to uphold the iconic namesake of Scout and ensure the new lineup is as timeless as all its predecessors,” said Ola Stenegärd, Director of Product Design for Indian Motorcycle.  “For us, it was imperative to keep it clean, follow the iconic lines of Scout, and create a package that offered seamless customization. To achieve this, it all started with the steel tube frame and all-new, V-twin engine.”

The three trim levels that can be applied to each model include: Standard, Limited, and Limited+Tech. The Standard includes new LED lighting and an analog gauge with newly introduced fuel level and fuel economy readouts. Stepping up to the limited adds the selectable rider modes, a USB power socket, traction control, and premium badging. The Limited+Tech changes out the standard gauge display for a touchscreen powered by Ride Command software that enables navigation at the rider’s fingertips and keyless push-button ignition.

The various models—Scout Bobber, Sport Scout, Scout Classic, Super Scout, and 101 Scout—each have their own technology suites and parts swap to tailor the bike to a different niche of the V-twin motorcycle market and will be rolling out to dealerships soon.
