24 pounds lighter and $2,000 cheaper. Meet the 2020 Indian Scout Bobber Sixty. Seeing how the 999c Scout Sixty is a leaner version of the 1133cc Scout, giving it the Bobber treatment seems natural. Black it out, chop its fenders, throw on some meaty Mags and a black leather solo seat, it all feels right on the 2020 Indian Scout Bobber Sixty.

The list of blacked-out bits runs deep – engine, exhaust, frame, handlebars, mirrors, turn signals, cast aluminum wheels, primary clutch covers, even the gauge face. A fresh tank badge, perch mount mirrors, headlight, the all-black seat, and five-spoke wheels wrapped in Pirelli Night Dragons highlight the styling revamp.

“Bringing a stripped down, old-school Bobber priced at $8,999 is something we’re very excited about. We’re proud to provide such a dynamic offering at a price point that makes owning an Indian motorcycle extremely attainable to an even wider range of riders,” said Reid Wilson, Vice President of Indian Motorcycle, in the announcement.

Thanks to its tracker bars and foot pegs that are 1.5-inches closer than the Scout Bobber, riders lean a bit more forward and the triangle is a touch tighter. The riding position suits a bike that’s sure to be a few steps quicker thanks to shedding 24 pounds. The 60-degree, 78 hp V-Twin is revvy, one of the reasons it’s been a favorite with Super Hooligan racers.

Two colors are offered, Thunder Black or Thunder Black Smoke paint with ABS and non-ABS versions. Pricing starts at $8,999, but the added cost of the ABS wasn’t listed yet, but I’d wager it tacks on about a grand. The 2020 Indian Scout Bobber Sixty are currently shipping and will hit dealership floors soon.
