BENGALURU: Expanding its product range, the iconic cruiser bike manufacturer, Indian Motorcycle launched the Scout Sixty. Named after its powerful engine, the Indian Scout Sixty is an entry-level cruiser from Indian Motorcycle, and sits just below the Indian Scout. The bike looks identical to its bigger sibling, with only few visible differences like the emblem on the fuel tank. Unlike its big brother, the Scout Sixty's engine is completely blacked-out.



The low slung silhouette with its chunky tires and fenders adds extra muscle to the overall look. Gazing at the specifications, the bike houses a Liquid Cooled V-twin Cylinder Semi Dry Sump engine coupled with 5 speed manual gearbox offering 98 Nm at 5800 rpm and 78 hp (58.2 KW) power. The machine offers 999CC displacement as well.  The average fuel efficiency this bike offers is about 25Km/l. It comes with a single-pod instrument console displaying a large, analogue speedometer with a small LCD screen displaying distance-to-empty readings, digital rev counter, and trip meter. A fuel gauge is missed instead there is a low fuel warning light.



The Scout Sixty shares almost all of the major parts of the original Scout, but Indian made some tweaks to the inside of the engine that cut displacement down to just under a liter. The company also got rid of fifth gear in the original Scout's transmission, so the five-speed Scout Sixty is just similar to having a four-speed with an overdrive.
