The Indian Scout provides 1920s styling with modern technology. The Massachusetts-based Mustang has followed this philosophy, and created two new aftermarket seats – an all-day Touring seat or the low RunAround.“We have always been partial to Indian motorcycles around here,” Mustang Sales Manager Jesse Sargent says. “The birthplace of Indian motorcycles is in Springfield, Massachusetts, less than 30 minutes from Mustang’s historic factory here in Three Rivers, so we have been following Indian’s progress closely.”
The Indian Scout Mustang seats are available in black or classic brown; Mustang also offers a variety of accessories. “We think it was worth the wait,” says Jesse. “If you like riding to far-away places, the Touring solos and passenger seats offer you and your companion support and comfort for the entire journey.”The Indian Scout Mustang Touring seats feature Mustang’s controlled-density, proprietary foam, precisely molded to the shapes and angles needed for optimal cruising comfort. The 13″ wide solo and 8.5″ wide passenger seat provide ample room for comfort without compromising the look of the bike.“The cover designs are brand-new concepts developed by our designers just for the Scout,” he adds. Available in black or classic brown vinyl, the two-tone pattern complements the look of the motorcycle. “The center stripe ties the solo, passenger seat and the driver backrest developed just for the Scout together visually.” But even bigger news is the fact that Mustang now offers leather seating panels exclusively for the Scout Touring solo seats.For riders preferring to cruise closer to home, consider the RunAround. “Mustang’s engineers developed this 9.5″ wide solo to be low, lean and mean so you will look classy and cool all around town.” The vinyl cover features distinctive styling and is also available in black or brown. “Whatever your style, Mustang has an option for your Scout that will let you show off the look and go the extra mile,” concludes Jesse.In addition to the new seats and related accessories for the Scout, Mustang also offers replacement seats and accessories for the Chieftain, Chief Classic and Chief Vintage.
