After announcing two new Scouts in its 2020 lineup back in September, Indian Motorcycle has dropped yet another new model, the 2020 Scout Bobber Sixty. Powered by the same 78 horsepower, 999cc, liquid cooled twin as that used in the Scout Sixty, but with the Scout Bobber’s stripped-down, blacked-out styling, the new Scout Bobber Sixty is a claimed 24 pounds lighter than the regular Scout Bobber and is priced starting at just $8,999.

The Scout Bobber Sixty maintains the stripped-down styling of the Scout Bobber, including chopped fenders and a confident riding position, while adding several cues that give the model a look of its own.
It features a blacked-out engine, a modern tank badge, perch mount mirrors, a stripped down headlight, an all-black seat and all new five-spoke all black wheels. Riders looking to customize their Scout Bobber Sixty can do so by selecting from more than 140 authentic Indian Motorcycle accessories.

Could we have something other than the same old black paint?
Well, Rob, the point is to keep the price down. Think, instead, of what they used to say about Ford’s Model T: “You can have it in any color you want as long as it’s black.”
I hear that every other color requires a large amount of unobtanium that causes the price of pigments like red and blue to be at least 3,235% more expensive than black.
Apparently black is the preferred color of garage queen motorcycles.
Any type of alarm system on this bike? Can’t seem to find the details.
