Indian Motorcycle had done a soft launch of the Scout Sixty in India at Rs 11.99 lakh in May 2016. However, the classic bike manufacturer has officially showcased its entry-level Scout, the Scout Sixty at the company's brand new dealership in Chandigarh. The brand new Scout Sixty is positioned below the Indian Scout and is imported through the CBU route from USA. Indian Motorcycle has started taking bookings for the Scout Sixty with a minimum booking amount of Rs 50,000. Deliveries will begin from this month onwards.
The Scout Sixty closely resembles the Scout with its broad fenders, long fuel tank and a single seat arrangement. We believe the Scout Sixty, like its elder sibling, will command as much appeal. The Scout Sixty's cluster features a digital tachometer, speedometer, trip meter, engine temperature and low fuel light.
Based on the same chassis as the Scout, the Scout Sixty comes equipped with the same brake, chassis and suspension setup. The Scout Sixty uses a 999cc motor that puts out 79PS (dropped by 22PS from the 1130cc motor) and makes 88.8Nm which has been reduced from 97.7Nm.
In addition, Indian Motorcycle also inaugurated its seventh dealership in Chandiagarh. Spread across an area of 8000 sq. ft, the new dealership Asco Motors is located at Plot 61, Industrial Area Phase 1 in Chandigarh. The dealership will display the entire range of Indian Motorcycle consisting of Chief Classic, Chief Vintage, Chieftain, Chief Dark Horse, Indian Scout, Roadmaster and the new Scout Sixty. The dealership will have an in-house service centre for after sales support.
Commenting at the dealership inauguration, Pankaj Dubey, managing director, Polaris India Pvt. Ltd. said, This new dealership in Chandigarh is part of the strategic expansion plans of Indian Motorcycle currently underway to bring the brand closer to its enthusiasts, wherever they are. Indian Motorcycle is already a well-established brand here with a large number of customers present in the city. This new dealership is aimed at providing brand enthusiasts greater accessibility."
