2021 Indian Scout Lineup First Look: Five Models (Photos, Specs + Prices)

Although the five-motorcycle Indian Scout lineup is functionally unchanged for 2021—last year was a major expansion of the line—this year, Indian is offering new colors and accessories to turn the Scout into a touring mount.

New touring-oriented factory accessories for the 2021 Indian Scout lineup include quick-release semi-rigid bags with a front hinge, a color-matched quick-release fairing sporting a two-, five-, or seven-inch windshield, a vinyl fairing bag, low and mid flyscreens, plus heated grips with three settings.

As before, the flavors of the Scout can be viewed in different ways. There are two standard Scouts, augmented by three Bobber variations. Or, you can see it as three 69ci Scouts, plus a pair of 60ci Scout Sixty models. Gone this year is the ultra-retro 100th Anniversary edition.

As before, you can get into the 2021 Indian Scout world for under $10k, as both Sixty models hit the showroom floor with a four-digit MSRP. ABS is widely available, and you’ll have to settle for Thunder Black paint if you don’t want that safety feature.
