New Indian Scout Sixty and Roland Sands Hooligan Racers

last night's press event for the debut of the new Indian Sixty and Roland Sands's Hooligan Racers

Last night was an event put on by Indian Motorcycles for media. It was the debut of the new Indian Scout Sixty, and the Roland Sand Design-built Scout Hooligan Racers. It was quite the show watching Roland and the guys racing around the track in a warehouse down by the ocean in San Pedro. Roland and the Hooligan Racers are gearing up for the Super Hooligan Race in Las Vegas this weekend.

The new Indian Scout Sixty offers many of the same features and components of the award-winning Indian Scout, which was introduced in 2014 at the Black Hills Rally on the fabled "Wall of Death." True to the craftsmanship, reliability and legendary agility of the Indian Scout, the new Scout Sixty shares the identical chassis, suspension, brakes and core engine — all mated with a new 60 cubic inch engine. Featuring 78hp, the highest horsepower in class, and a dry weight of 542 pounds with a potent 65 ft./lbs. of linear torque, the Scout Sixty is paired with a silky smooth, easy-to-shift 5-speed transmission, and starts at $8,999. Offered in three classic, bold Indian Motorcycle colors, the Scout Sixty features a black seat, matching black frame and wheels, and is compatible with the many accessories already available for the Indian Scout.

The Scout Sixty is available in Thunder Black starting at $8,999, with Indian Motorcycle Red and Pearl White color options starting at $9,299. A seat height of 25.3 inches allows for sure-footed comfort at stops, and the low center of gravity ensures agile cornering, precise balance and overall rider confidence and control. A series of accessories including seats, handlebars and footpeg relocators allow the motorcycle to be tailored to fit each rider, while additional accessories such as saddlebags, wire wheels and quick-release windscreens give owners virtually unlimited freedom to customize their rides.
