Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! As an owner of 14 motorcycles and 3 Indians (Chief Vintage ‘14, Darkhorse ‘11, and now Scout 40th) I LOVE this bike. The looks, the ride, the styling, the refinement, the attention to detail, the cold fusion power below 3800 rpms, and the nuclear power above 3800 rpms, and just general feel of this bike is OUTSTANDING. Nice work Indian. Added hand warmers and the fish tail pipes which give an extra roar to this beauty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mid Size Cruiser After a 37 year riding hiatus, I decided to get back into it on a new Indian Scout ABS. It was definitely the right choice to start riding again. Styling, handling, power are all excellent. Glad I made this choice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st Indian, great bike! Originally looked at this as an investment, but after riding it the first 1K miles I realized I'd invested in smiles. Good solid handling bike, very responsive to controls. Tweaked it for the way I ride (who doesn't?)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needs a better belt guard Has a plastic belt guard and the stick on reflectors have already fallen off. However, the mechanics of the bike are sound. Balance, handling and power to weight ratio are almost perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing first motorcycle I bought this Scout just over a month ago as my first motorcycle, and have already put in 900 miles. I am six feet tall, and actually love how low it is. It feels very stable and I am never worried that it will tip over. I am also glad I went with the regular Scout and not the Scout Sixty or anything less powerful. At first, it sounded like this engine would be too powerful for a first motorcycle, but I grew into it responsibly. "Responsibly," as in I already took it up to 100 mph. This this purrs, then she growls ... she's like a panther! I am so excited to grow older with this motorcycle. I only put on highway bars, and do not any other accessory at this time. She takes corners really well, and have yet to scrap a peg (knock on wood). Indian, you all hit this out the park! Please never stop producing the Scout!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ride I’ve always loved the old school look of the Indian bikes. I was shocked at how comfortable and smooth the ride is. It’s low center of gravity makes it feel like a much lighter bike. Super easy to handle and lots of horsepower. Absolutely love this bike!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Funtastic bike Yes, it is a funtastic motorcycle, a life changing experience for me. I've been riding for 30+ years, never owning a bike of my own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect One month and over 1k miles, and I couldn't be much happier with my purchase. I am 6ft tall and will be changing over to the factory mini ape bars. I'm keeping the seat for now cause its comfy enough and looks great. I swapped the 30 pound mufflers for 2 pound shorty's that sound great. The 1 problem that keeps this from being perfect... before my break in was done (around 300 miles), the crank position sensor nailed and I had to tow twice to get it home and then to the shop. Awesome service and warranty coverage aside, this should not happen at all. BUT... running perfectly and looks, sounds, feels amazing. Beautiful piece of Americana.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indian Scout ABS is the BEST! I’ve primarily owned BMWs and the build quality and riding enjoyment of my Scout is far superior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and great look. The Scout is my third Indian Motorcycle. I previously owned Indian Springfield's but due to health reasons I had to go to a lighter bike and my Scout was the right choice. It is fast,powerful and good looking. Handles great in curves or in traffic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deam Bike I grew up 5 miles from the Indian factory in Springfield Mass. My fathers company rented the building next door to the Indian Museum for 50 years. I wanted one my whole life. It is everything I hoped. A fabulous bike in every way!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bike I'm very please with the Anniversary Scout. It rides very smooth, has plenty of power, and has a sharp, classic look!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall smooth ride I like the bike...plenty of power and very smooth...however, the gear shifter fell off as I was driving and it was determined that they didn’t put the bushing in at the factory that holds it in place...luckily I wasn’t going too fast

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Bike After a lifetime of riding leaking,rattling,vibrating,loud,no brakes,no lights motorcycles. This bike is a joy. Feels and handles lighter than it is. Is very powerfull but Quiet. Brakes are great. Only things I dont like about it are,no place to store registration or anything when bags arent on it. No provision to lock it up,no fork lock, and the seat is not very comfortable after 40 miles or so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power It's a good-looking bike has all the power I need and runs real smooth does not vibrate at idle too much brakes are great shifts well I'm very pleased with my purchase
