2025 Indian Scout Classic First Look [7 Fast Facts]

There are five new motorcycles in the 2025 Indian Scout lineup—the 101 Scout, Sport Scout, Super Scout, Scout Bobber, and Scout Classic. The newest Scouts feature the new SpeedPlus 1250 engine and matching frame, with the various Scouts mining a different part of Indian’s long heritage. We covered technical aspects and the broad range of options for the 2025 Indian Scout lineup last week, so we won’t go through all that again. This time, our attention is focused on the new 2025 Indian Scout Classic. So, let’s dig in.

2025 Indian Scout Classic First Look: MSRP

  1. The 2025 Indian Scout Classic has a stately designed to satisfy traditionalists. Bucking the current trend towards blacked-out styling, the Classic proudly shows off its chrome. The exhaust system captures the most eyeballs, with more shiny stuff provided by the wire-spoke 16-inch wheels, handlebar, turn signals, mirrors, round headlight, and valve covers for the DOHC liquid-cooled V-twin. Valanced full-coverage fenders provide a resolute look while keeping road grime at bay.
