Two new Scout models are joining the lineup for 2022 as Indian has swapped some parts, added a little of the "club-style" look and created the new Rogue and Rogue Sixty.

The functional parts are pretty much the same as the existing Scout and Scout Sixty models, except for the 19-inch front wheel on the two Rogues. All other Scout models roll on 16-inch wheels front and rear. The appearance parts that give the Rogues a different look include Indian's mini-ape handlebar, a small fairing, bar-end mirrors, a solo seat and blacked-out engine and exhaust parts.

Like other Scout models, the difference between the Rogue and the Rogue Sixty comes down to engine, transmission and price. The Rogue produces a claimed 100 horsepower at the crank from its 1,133 cc V-twin, runs the power through a six-speed transmission to the belt final drive, and costs $11,499 base price. The Rogue Sixty produces a claimed 78 horsepower, has a five-speed transmission and costs you $1,500 less.

Underneath, you get the same Scout package of a multi-valve, liquid-cooled V-twin, a five-speed gearbox with belt drive, single disc brakes at both ends and — a feature somewhat infamous among Common Tread testers — a minimalistic two inches of rear suspension travel. That brings the expected pros and cons, from the ultra-low seat height some riders want to a rough ride and limited cornering clearance other riders don't want.

The adjustable piggyback rear shocks that Indian already offers for the Scout will fit the Rogues, as well. They increase travel to 3.0 inches and add rebound and compression damping adjustability for $799.99, but they're currently shown as out of stock on the Indian web site.

Riders who plan to push the Scout Rogue's portfolio beyond local cruising might want to consider some of Indian's other accessories, such as the rider comfort seat, a two-up seat, saddlebags and the Pathfinder adaptive LED headlight, which activates additional beams to adjust for cornering. But if you're planning long-haul rides on the Rogues, you might want to consider that Indian offers some other models better suited to the mission. You might also want to consider that Indian recommends 91-octane fuel for the Scout and the fuel tank only holds 3.3 gallons. No wonder Jen Dunstan over at RevZilla, in her recent review of the Scout Bobber, concluded that "I can’t say it’s a top choice for the next long-distance bender."

Scout Rogue colors and pricing

Since the Rogue versions differ from the regular Scout mostly in appearance, it's not surprising that the prices depend mostly on your choice of paint, plus ABS. We're happy to see that Indian is offering colors other than gray, but it must be a sign of the social mood or something that a U.S. motorcycle manufacturer has introduced a new motorcycle and informed us that we'll have to pay more to get it in gray.

The prices break down like this. If you want the base model Scout Rogue without ABS, your only color choice is Black Metallic and the price is $11,499. With ABS and Black Metallic, the Rogue costs $900 more at $12,399. In Black Smoke, Sagebrush Smoke or Storm Blue, all of which come with ABS, MSRP is $12,899. If you want Stealth Gray, pay $13,399. Prices in Canada are all $3,100 higher in Canadian dollars.

The Scout Rogue Sixty in Black Metallic and without ABS barely squeaks under the five-figure mark (before fees and taxes, naturally) at $9,999. The Sixty in Black Metallic with ABS is $10,899 and the Bronze Smoke and Titanium Smoke colors are $11,399. Prices in Canada are all $2,300 higher in Canadian dollars.

The new Rogues offer a look that many riders were creating themselves with accessories, and now you can get it straight from the factory. Beyond that, they don't break any new ground, but more options are still better, right?
