Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Bike! Best bike I've ever owned. No joke. However, there is ONE manufacturing oversight that really needs to be addresed : The Rear Reflectors. They are held on by sticky tape, which peeled off easily when trying to attach the reflectors. They need to make these 'permanent' fixtures of the bike and not with sticky tape. Not sure what they were thinking (or lack thereof) but with the elements that comes with riding a bike the reflectors will eventually fall off. (I used Alien Tape to secure them. Much better than the 3M tape Indian used) Aside from that...... its perfect!! I gave 5 stars on all categories but 1 (Fit and Finish) because of the rear reflector issue. Honestly, this should be a recall issue so they can be 'permanently attached'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My birthday present to myself I absolutely love getting out and about on this bike! It was everything I wanted when I ordered it, and when I am not riding I am thinking about the rides to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power and thrills I bought my bobber in October and have been riding it every chance I get. I love the look and the power on this bike. I am a first time rider and the scout bobber turns out to be the perfect choice for me. Right height, right feel, and did I already mention the power. It is taxing on long rides ( the ride position adds some straining on my neck with my full face helmet after a couple hours) but the thrill of the ride with the responsive throttle makes it more than worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Reminds me of my younger days. I have been playing with and loving motorcycles since I was 12. I am now 72. Although It is a modern motorcycle, I love the relative simplicity of it. Not a lot of unneeded electronics. I spent 25 years in the USCG and owned beaucoup motorcycles, sometimes 3 at a time. This one is a keeper. It kind of reminds me of my first motorcycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best decision I've had my Scout since September and I have to say it gets better and better the more I ride it. I carefully reviewed several other bikes before my purchase and knew it was the best choice for me. It has superb handling and is a looker as it's always getting stares lol. Even though I had to wait so long it was totally worth it. Indian also supported me with a gift when I purchased because I was a veteran. A+ to a company that show its support for military. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love I bought my very first bike to celebrate my 40th birthday. It's the 2022 Scout Bobber 20. I absolutely love the feeling of being on it. I ordered all my upgrades at that time. Indian makes a gorgeous bike. There are a few things I'd wish were different. If you're looking for a loud bike, you need aftermarket pipes. There's is NO fuel display... Completely mind blowing. So, do quick math or set your odometer to track it... Polaris, get with the program and fix this. For order turn around time: I ordered the bike on mAy 14, and it came in Aug 07. Everything was put on at the dealership, and it's gorgeous. I'm still waiting on footboards, as of Oct 17. From start to finish, the sales team was so wonderful and kept me in the loop as they new things. Indian of Marietta was amazing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a fun ride - never want it to stop. Great look and feel. Very easy for a first time rider. I do recommend an safety course in your state if its provided - that was beneficial. This bike handles well. I get so many complements on it. It just fits me. And the Indian brand is stuck to me for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 22 Scout Bobber Non ABS I ordered my bike on 2/25/22 and picked it up 8/09/22. This was a very long wait in my opinion but I'm thrilled with what I received. I love this bike and don't ever see me selling it or trading it in for another. I went with the thunder black metallic finish cause I didn't see spending this type of money for something that looks like it's primers regardless of how some people think that finish is attractive or cool. I loved the paint more after I got the bike home and gave it its first wash and wax. It looks like a black mirror. The blacked out finish is nice to a degree but begs for some chrome here and there for contrast. The bike looks and runs awesome. About the only things I'd change about it mechanically is I feel like the engine idle speed is a touch high. At operating temperature it idles at 1150. I feel like this should come down to around 850-950. It wants to immediately take off when the clutch is released without applying any throttle. I've tested this out and went down the road just on idle and have easily been able to upshift to 2nd gear. The other mechanical change I'd like to see is quieter bearings in the electric fan. It's pretty well loud and the first time I heard it I thought something was wrong with the bike. I changed the stock exhaust out for something much louder and I can still hear the fan. The bike handles great and its done everything I've asked it to do with ease. The stock seat is annoying and doesn't hold you in place. I plan on changing this to something much better soon. The biggest issue that I have with this bike is that I can't seem to be able to go anywhere and not attract attention and be able to get in and out of somewhere quickly. It never fails that atleast 2 or 3 people approach me with compliments and questions. If you don't like attention or aren't a people person then thus bike probably isn't for you. Also, i live in a rural and heavily agricultural area in southside Virginia. This is a gorgeous place to live and ride. Im blessed with lots of natural scenery, windy backgrounds and very close to a state park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Not all my riding happens on pavement is my point. Ive riden on dirt, gravel and grassy fields and had full confidence in this bike the entire time. This bike is not at all a dirt bike but it does great on some limited and light offroad use. This fits completely with my perceptions of Indian bikes and how they started ovet 100 years ago. These bikes were riden on unpaved roads, in pastures and even on battlefields. I've loved Indian bikes all my life but thus is the first time I've had the pleasure of owning one. I visited several brand dealerships before my purchase and sat on many a seat but I didn't feel like it was for me until I sat on an Indian Scout. This is an unusual bike and people stare at it like it's a spaceship or something like that. I really like that it's different. I like my bikes the way I like my women and that is uncommon and not one that everyone else in creation has had. If you want to be one of the masses then buy an HD, If you appreciate being an Individual then buy an Indian. Thank you Polaris for building a truly awesome bike and I feel sure it will probably outlive me and still be riding down the road decades from now like Indians are known to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOLD ON TIGHT After reading all the reviews I could and photos. I decided on the Indian motorcycle. Found the right color! Right features. I wanted a nice simple bike. No bell or whistles just BIKE. This bike is awsome! Way more power than I expected. Handling is amazing balance is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Building smile muscles This bike is the perfect example of raw vintage riding. Go stock right out of the box and feel every curve and power through the straightaways or build this bike to suit your personality and ride with confidence to fill every need and want in your own style. Currently working on my own handcrafted leather accessories that says I own this bike!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bike!!! I absolutely love my 2022 ISB!! I've had 3 other motorcycles and by far my Scout Bobber is my favorite. I do recommend upgrading to the comfort seat for longer rides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish Ride Really happy with the look and performance of the bike but can't give it 5 stars (which it deserves) due to the appalling stock seat and equally appalling rear suspension! Have since changed seats and suspension (front and rear progressive) plus added an LED headlight which really should have been standard amongst many other personal performance and cosmetic changes that Indian is very much lacking in ability to supply, Indian really needs to do better here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Bobber I bought this a month ago and have never regretted it. I can't believe the compliments I get on its style and looks. I'm sure I will upgrade to a bigger bike eventually but this ride is sweet and no regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an adventure My entire life as a rider, I have always given my attention to the Asian ladies (sport bikes) as they always tickled my speed rush and road hugging. Now that I’m older and my back not all that great, I gave our American big bone babies a chance. And wow not what I expected, the power and capabilities this scout has..oh my after some upgrades the sound of American muscle built here in the states has me very pleased and happy…always looking for a chance to take her out and get her screaming but yet sidle comfort ride. I do say I’m happy Indian has my full attention.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scout bobber I am extremely happy with my scout bobber twenty and all the extra accessories I have ordered and installed. Except for one. It is the fairing storage bag. The magnetic latch holding it shut does not hold the cover closed. I asked the dealer for a replacement but the same results. Also made a comment to Indian direct with no results. Poor poor Custer I’ve.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great starter bike After 26 years of not having a bike I finally broke down and bought an Indian Scout Bobber. Great bike to get back on the road with. Only had it for about 5 weeks and have put almost 1k miles on it. It’s not so great for interstate riding, just doesn’t have the power. It’s is great for rural roads and backroads all day long tho. It’s fairly quick and agile, great on curvy roads. I have been on a couple 1.5 hr rides and the seat gets really uncomfortable after about an hour. My hopes are to keep this bike for 2-3 years then trade up to something a lil bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple but elegant I bought my Indian Scout Bobber ABS about three months ago. Everytime I take it out for a ride, I get so many “thumbs up!” and compliments on how fine it looks. I really enjoy the way people approach me and initiate conversations about my bike and the fact that they would love to own one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Motorcycle Couldn’t Be Happier I bought my 2021 Scout Bobber a few months ago and it was the best decision I made everyone at HYR Motorsports was amazing and the bike itself is low, mean and beautiful. She handles amazingly and is super fun to ride I definitely would recommend this bike to anyone from beginners to more experienced riders just an overall great bike and I get compliments on the daily from riders and non riders alike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never going back Happy to say I’m here to stay in the Indian family. Despite some hiccups at the dealer I bought at in another state, I love the bike and visiting my local dealer
