The Indian Scout Bobber Sixty is joining the FTR Rally, Roadmaster Elite, Challenger and other mean two-wheeled machines in the storied American bike brand's 2020 lineup.

The menacingly murdered-out moto gets the Scout Sixty's 78-horsepower 999cc liquid-cooled V-Twin instead of the 2020 Scout Bobber's 1133cc V-Twin, but retains much of its bigger brother's stripped-down style, including chopped fenders and a slammed rear suspension.

The dark theme continues elsewhere, with the exhaust, frame, handlebars, mirrors, turn signals, primary and clutch covers all finished in black. A color-matched gauge face on the instrument panel rounds out the sinister look.

Other features give the Scout Bobber Sixty a minimalistic identity of its own on Indian's roster, including new five-spoke cast aluminum wheels wrapped in Kenda K673F street tires, stripped-down headlights, LED rear signals with integrated stop, turn and tail lights, and a side-mounted license plate.

Compared to the Scout Sixty, the Scout Bobber Sixty’s foot pegs are 1.5 inch closer and the tracker handle bars move the torso forward, putting the rider in a more aggressive position. A larger passenger seat that partially covers the rear fender can be installed as an option for those who want to ride two-up.

The exhaust and muffler can also be upgraded to improve throttle response, deliver a deeper exhaust note, and increase horsepower by over 10 percent, as well as transform the dual-pipe setup into a single unit. Options include the Stage 1 2-into-1 full exhaust system, and the Stage 1 shorty slip-on muffler kit. More than 140 additional Indian accessories are available for those who to extra customization.
