2019 Indian Scout Bobber Thunder Black is rated out of 5 by 181.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ScoutBobber from 400 miles in 3 days, and its so freaking good!! First 3 days of ownership I put 400 miles on the bike. Possibly the best 400 miles I have ever riden! More than enough power, and a great wide band to wring it out. The seat takes a while to break in, but once it does it is perfect even on tank draining no stop stints. I did have the anemic exhaust replaced with Vance and Hines Gernades exhaust, Intake, and tune which adds even more power (not needed) but helps that 69CI monster roar. I'll keep my XR for hooligan races but the Scout will be my favorite from here on out! I will never go back to HD as long as Indian keeps producing bikes like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bruner from This Bike Rocks! I have discerning tastes. Too much bling is just an attempt to cover up bland with chrome. I normally chop up old bikes and paint everything flat black. As much as I love old bikes, I don't love the normal problems that come with old equipment. So needless to say when I saw the matte black Indian Scout Bobber on the show room floor I fell in love. My love only deepened when I got to ride it. Holy smokes! Smooth power from bottom to top. Handling is a dream and I get to look really cool while doing it. Super stoked on this bike and I'm over the moon that I now own one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trahan1011 from Great Bike! I have always been a Polaris fan so when I learned they make Indian I had to look and fell in love instantly. Besides looking great this thing handles great. if your looking For long distance touring this probably isn’t the right bike for you as it has more of a sport suspension. The only complaint I have is the seat, I love the 2 tone look but it’s about as comfortable as sitting on a cinder block. And of course The first thing I did was change the slip ones for a better sound. Overall I am extremely satisfied with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fasteddy from Scout bobber I signed up for the demo ride at a local dealership with Indian factory test ride rig. Stock the scout bobber was a little soft in power delivery with firm feeling rear shocks and seat. Then I rode the scout bobber with modified intake and opened up pipes with fox shocks and comfort seat. The bikes engine response was crisp with smooth linier power. Handling was good suspension compliance with the fox shocks and stock forks was spot on. The brakes were strong with good rider feedback and the six speed gear box shifted cleanly with well sorted out gear ratios. Overall the modified bobber was a blast to ride.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tim73 from Happy Fathers Day! My wife bought me this bike for Fathers Day, early, so I could enjoy the weather. I would have given 5 stars, but I think there are some minor comfort issues. I have installed 10" mini ape hanger handlebars and the flickability is comparable to my previous sport bike now. Amazing! I've also gone with an aftermarket LED headlight assembly. The solo rear rack and side saddlebag. If these options came already on the bike I'd have given it 5 stars straight through. I understand the price point, and I'm satisfied. 4.5 Stars. P.S. Never complain to your wife when she buys you a motorcycle. ;) Just say "Yes dear, thank you."

Rated 5 out of 5 by davidvhines from Best looking Bike I've ever owned This is my first Indian motorcycle and I will never own anything else (as long as Polaris keeps making them). I've been riding since I was 15 years old, legally, :) and have had many bikes. I traded in a 2015 Victory Vegas 8-Ball, because, you know... I've had to adjust a couple of things as I am 6' 2", and didn't want it to sound like a Prius so I put on some Vance & Hines Grenades, but otherwise I couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amdz13 from BEST LOOKING BOBBER ON THE MARKET I purchased my Indian Scout Bobber 3 months ago at Indian motorcycles of Fort. Lauderdale. Needless to say what a great experience it was. I have to thank all the crew over at the dealer in sales (Greg). Parts and service ( Austin, Hondo, Nick, Shawn) just to name a few. With their expertise and advice they help me customized my Bobber exactly the way I wanted it from the get go. It took a little bit of time but it was well worth the wait since some of the parts had to be special ordered. The ride it's firm but sporty, handles like a sport cruiser w/ plenty of passing power and torque from low rpms. I wanted something different and better than what the other American brand was offering and I found it on the Indian Scout Bobber. POLARIS its taking the Indian brand in the right direction w/ these new line of Scout bikes. Hopefully they will come out w/ other styles guided to a younger audience like cafe racers, trackers and other models. Here are a few pics of my new ride :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Zamboni from forward controls and handlebars a problem. I rode the Bobber for a full 20 minutes in mild winding road conditions. After 20 minutes, my shoulders were killing me due to the forward reach and the in ability to scoot forward on the seat. The seat was too far back for my 5'-6" frame. And the lack of a wind screen made the wind at 50 mph tried to push me off the bike; making more strain on my shoulders. I ride a 750 Magna with the footpegs under me and the forward controls were foreign and very uncomfortable. Although I love Polaris bikes, this is not the model for me The Scout is a much more comfortable bike and would be great with a wind screen, foot controls under my hip and a throttle lock.
