“We are extremely excited about the return of the legendary Scout, not least because it will be the first truly new Scout in more than seven decades – it is a contemporary yet classic interpretation of one of motorcycling’s most coveted and famous bikes, known for its feats as the ‘world’s fastest Indian’ and on the ‘Wall of Death’,” said Indian Motorcycle Australia Country Manager Peter Harvey.
