It's hard to believe but Indian Motorcycle is celebrating the 100th anniversary of one of its originals, the Indian Scout. For 2020, the modern Scout pays homage to the original 1920 version with a "Bobber"-specific variation in the 2020 Indian Scout Bobber Twenty.
Rolling on wire-spoke wheels (versus cast alloys), the Bobber also gets a nifty floating seat sans passenger accommodation. It also trades a conventional handlebar for a mini-ape version (10-inch high) affording a meaner stance.
It eats blacktop via a 69ci (1,133cc) liquid-cooled V-twin that puts nearly 85 hp and 64 pound-feet of torque to the chunky Pirelli MT 60 tire. The engine feels especially punchy compared to its competition and it sounds just as tasty as it looks hung inside a meaty alloy frame. But don’t just take our word for it, watch the Indian Scout Bobber Twenty in action in this MC Commute installment.
