Following on from a series of limited and special edition Scouts released by Indian Motorcycle Australia, the latest one was announced in late February: the ‘Indian Scout Franklin Edition’.
Taking its name from Charles B. Franklin, the designer of the original 1920 Indian Scout back, the modern tribute features a number of unique styling touches said to be inspired by the original Scout.
Leading the way is an Indian Red treatment on the fuel tank and mudguards, with a vintage Indian script logo in gold on the fuel tank and gold coachlines on the tank and guards.
The chunky front and rear rims are painted black (with chromed spokes), and there’s also a tractor-style sprung solo saddle trimmed in real leather.
Mechanical and other specs are unaltered, meaning a 74.7kW/97.7Nm 1133cc v-twin, 6-speed gearbox, twin shock rear, ABS brakes and a 12.5-litre fuel tank, to name some of the stock Scout features.
Priced at $21,495 rideaway and produced in strictly limited numbers, Indian says the Franklin Edition offers over $4,000 in added value.
