    Indian Scout cruiser review - Motorbike Writer

    Just look at that engine with its artistically pressed cases and the lack of unsightly plumbing hanging out. In fact, they stalled the delivery earlier this year to resolve a paint problem around the tank. Fixed and now it is perfect. I rode the Scout at its world release at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally on the billiard-table-snooth roads of South Dakota just over a year ago and then again late last year at the Australasian launch in Burt Munro territory in the beautiful South Island of New Zealand.

    For the model year, the only change is the addition of a new redder red warpaint, so the gloss black bike I tested last week when I rode it on the horrible bumpy roads of South East Queensland has not changed my mind about this motorcycle. They are basically springs. There is no compression or rebound damping and the spring is too soft.

    Regardless, the mechanics at Indian Motorcycle in Brisbane tell me that hardly any owners swap out the shocks. The only other concerns I have are a fair bit of heat from the rear cylinder, a wide turning circle and the unfinished look of the aftermarket saddlebags. The bottom part of the bag clip should be leather and the back of the bags looks unfinished.

    This stands out because the brown leather contrasts against the black plastic backs. In fact, I will now apologise to readers and largely plagiarise myself by running my previous review with some added comments along the way. First off, the engine is the main attraction here. The Indian Scout has more power and torque than its opposition, is more refined, quieter and far more flexible. It will pull strongly from about revs and hits the meat of the torque about The six-speed transmission has a tall first gear and a short top gear making it a close-ratio box which is unusual for a cruiser.

    You will find yourself taking most city corners in first rather than second gear. Thankfully the fuelling is very smooth, so this is no drama. You can whip through the cogs with ease. Riding position is also fairly aggressive for a cruiser, with the rider sitting on it, rather than in it. For my cm frame, it offers plenty of control and comfort. However, its low seat height and ergonomic rider triangle also make it appealing to a wide range of rider heights. Optional handlebars, foot controls and seats will make it even more suitable for both taller and shorter riders.

    It also feels very slim with no air filters or protruding engine components forcing splayed legs. On past tests I worried about the comfort of the seat.

    When you first mount up it feels like there is a ridge under your bum. However, after prolonged tank-full stretches in the saddle, I am happy to report it actually is quite comfortable for a long haul. The Korean-made Kenda tyres should be long lasting, but they are not the best for grip on wet roads. In the dry, they feel fine. The steel-braided brake lines give the front lever plenty of feel and the single disc seems to have enough effect for my 75kg weight. If you weigh a bit more and option up to the dual seat and saddlebags, it may feel underbraked.

    The classic instruments are a single round unit with analogue speedo and an LCD screen that includes a clock and toggles between rev counter, odometer, trip meter, engine temperature and low fuel warning via a handy switch on the front of the left switchblock.

    A fuel gauge would be nice, though. The self-cancelling indicators work very well. After road tests in three countries I can now say this is a quality bike with plenty of character and an engine that will win your heart.
