American iconic motorcycle manufacturer, Indian Motorcycles, has introduced a new paint scheme to its newest offering in the country, the Indian Scout Sixty.
The Indian Scout Sixty, which is the litre-capacity motorcycle, now gets a new Star Silver or Thunder Black color option. The Indian Scout Sixty is the most affordable product in the portfolio of Indian Motorcycles, for buyers in the western city of the country to choose from. The bike is the smaller sibling of the Indian Scout, which is a much bigger motorcycle in comparison.
The new color choice now is in addition to the already available red, black and white, solid paint options present on the bike until now. The new dual tone color will also see the addition of golden pinstripes on the fuel tank of the motorcycle.
The Indian Scout has been very well accepted by customers of the historic motorcycle brand in the country. The motorcycle brings in about 60 per cent of the total sales volumes of the company. Seeing the increasing market for premium and mid-size motorcycles in the country, Indian Motorcycles has introduced the bike in Mumbai, which had earlier already been launched in the national capital, New Delhi.
With the launch of the Indian Scout Sixty in Mumbai, the company now aims to enhance the overall portion of the Scout series in company’s sales numbers to around 75 per cent. The Indian Scout Sixty comes with a 999cc liquid-cooled V-Twin engine, which produces 78 BHP of power at 5,800 rpm and generates 89 Nm of peak torque. Indian Motorcycles is marketed under the Polaris group in the country, which is a player in the All-Terrain Vehicle or ATV space.
Indian Motorcycles intends to locally assemble its bikes in the country, once it sees considerable volumes, suitable to infuse an investment into the same. At the moment, the motorcycles are being imported as Completely Built Units or CBUs and being sold in the Indian market.
