This Motorcycle Might Be the Coolest Sub-$10,000 Ride We’ve Ever Seen

The Indian Scout Bobber Sixty packs dark good looks, 999 ccs and 78 ponies into a package that starts at just $8,999.

Outside of the temperature-oriented definition, “cool” is a pretty elusive term, isn’t it?

Essentially a streamlined version of the original Scout Bobber, the Sixty features slightly less displacement (999 ccs versus 1,133) and a lower weight (548 pounds wet, versus 572).
