    Proof that Indian is/will be a big player.

    The 2 in 1 exhaust improves a lot the look of the Scout. well done.

    cool looks . trask makes a quality product

    Trask Performance, not a very well known company except for their turbo stuff, did good on these exhausts. Everybody jumping on the Indian bandwagon. Must feel good, Polaris.

    Great pipes. Should offer same for Sportsters.

  6. 6 SIGFREED Jan 22nd, 2015 at 11:22 am

    The rear fender remains ‘Victory ugly’ and the front fender not far “behind” it.

    I would rather make an aftermarket effort to have an alternative for the fenders.

    BTW – the Polaris Scout is just a crib of the 1st gen V-Rod. Anybody that made pipe for the 1st gen V-Rod will have most of what is required to juice up the Scout.

    “I would rather make an aftermarket effort to have an alternative for the fenders”

    Cool! We look forward to seeing them, let us know.

    That’s a really nice bump in performance, something I thought the Scout badly needed after a demo ride. Kinda interesting though, most of the time I see exhaust discussed it’s all about sound and very little about performance. I take performance over sound but how well will these systems be recieved by those care more about sound?
    To me the fenders look like they came off an old Indian Scout. I see no resemblence to the much nicer looking Victory fenders.

  9. 9 Blackmax Jan 22nd, 2015 at 5:22 pm

    Glad to see Nick get on the bandwagon, and why shouldn’t he ??
    The entire Ness family are on board,
    as are John Shope/Dirty Bird , Brian Klock & numerous other luminaries in the industry.
    Face facts, Polaris (Indian / Victory) is here to stay & thank goodness they are !!!!
    Every action they take pushes H-D to improve their product or lose more market share.
    Got to love what the future looks like !!!
    Trask items are aces, way to go !!!!

  10. 10 Zenaldo Jan 22nd, 2015 at 7:09 pm

    Still reminds me of lipstick on a pig sort of thing…but Im all for any functional performance for any brand machine…and it sounds like they conquered that with this setup..kudos..

  11. 11 Zenaldo Jan 22nd, 2015 at 7:11 pm

    And yes, will somebody PLEASE make some decent looking fenders for this thing…yikes…no flow at all Polaris..

  12. 12 Badams Jan 23rd, 2015 at 1:01 am

    Huh? This attempt looks like a half measure. Bassani and others will go to market once this bike has proven viable to warrant r and d. Until then have a tuner build to your design and dyno it for max performance sans headwork.

  13. 13 Jeff Duval Jan 23rd, 2015 at 7:14 am

    Agree with most comments, BAD looking bike all around… Gawd, in the country that gave us the Shelby Cobras, and then Apple; not to mention the Moon (…), you would expect such a bike to look like one!…

  14. 14 Harlan Jan 23rd, 2015 at 8:31 am

    Quality products from a great company…Nick knows his stuff…..

  15. 15 Mike Jan 23rd, 2015 at 8:50 am

    Jeff, I suggest you go see a Scout in person, and then come back here and apologize to Indian for calling it ugly.

  16. 16 JackS Jan 23rd, 2015 at 8:51 am

    At first blush, the price seems high for this class of bike–but not totally unexpected for a newly released bike. I am sure it will drop as sales volume ramps up and competition increases. I for one welcome Trask’s product offering.

    Regarding visual appeal and knowing Polaris had to stay true to the heritage of the original Scout’s lines, I can appreciate the tins on this bike. That being said, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. I personally find the form of the Sportster Forty-Eight to be much more appealing.

    If, at the end of the night, a Sportster 72 went home from the bar with a V-Rod Muscle, would their offspring be a Scout?

  17. 17 Chris Jan 23rd, 2015 at 8:56 am

    I would ride the piss out of that bike and think it looks pretty decent. I dig the fenders, though the rear is really nothing special, the hard lines are pleasing to my eye.

    The handlebars don’t do much for me. Has somebody tried an inverted front fork and drag bars yet? That’d be sharp.

    For some reason, this bike makes me want to watch the old film Metropolis. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad though.

  18. 18 SIGFREED Jan 23rd, 2015 at 9:53 am


    I will pretend I did not catch you veiled sarcasm and I will “let you know” what I would do (link below), so “let me know” if YOU will buy it. I am based in Europe – still far too few Polaris Scouts around (eg have not even seen one on the road) to warrant tooling (let alone hand fab and/or take a saw or cutting-torch to the standard fenders).

    Note – I run a private shop (mostly as a hobby at this stage) and can therefore be selective with the work I/we do. The Scout has potential – but certainly not the direction Polaris has taken it. I am keen to dissect the Scout and rebuild it, but naturally have to buy one- and do it for myself first, so I will wait for a while to let it sort itself out a bit. In the spirit of things here, keep the criticism constructive (if you have to), it may actually help me (and others); apart from that fell free to call it what you like —;-)

    BTW – the promo “Wall of Death” Scout’s rear fender (imho) was already an improvement (of sorts).

  19. 19 BobS Jan 23rd, 2015 at 10:56 am

    Sigfreed here’s some constructive criticism to help you out. You will never see or buy a Polaris Scout in your country, my country, or any other country. Because Indian makes the Scout, Polaris does not. As long as you insist on using such thinly veiled passive-aggressive statements as a put down you will blind yourself from seeing the true potential of what your business may be capable of doing with such a product. If you want to see what direction Indian has taken the Scout, search images of Scouts from the 1930’s. I’m not a huge replica / retro guy, hence I prefer Victory. But a lot of your potential customers obviously do.

  20. 20 BCinSoCal Jan 23rd, 2015 at 11:08 am

    The usual bunch of whiners posting on here. The Scout will be a good starting place. If you don’t like it don’t buy one. Or buy one, change it, make it your way! Have a feeling it won’t be long before there will be a lot of well done custom Scouts out there!

  21. 21 SIGFREED Jan 23rd, 2015 at 11:38 am


    I am not here for a cyber dual, but here is some constructive criticism, if not mature (as both of probably are not).

    You but a horse. The horse dies and you bury it. You buy another horse and give it the same name as the first horse – IT IS NOT THE SAME HORSE JUST BECAUSE IT HAS THE SAME NAME (period).

    Now you, or anybody else, can try and be smart and throw back retorts like, “we are not talking about horses here”‘or some other red-herring; the reality is as per the above parallel. If Polaris and you (I suspect you are a dealer or something similar) are going to cling to some non-existent lineage, then you WILL fail, or at best limit your sales severely. JUST MOVE ON and focus on the future.

    Eg – you do not buy a Triumph today – you but a Hinckley. Give Hinckley some credit though – they are not pigheadedly obsessed with some distant lineage (yes here and there they do use it – but not obsessively); they just build great bikes and sell more every year – in a market that is even more competitive than in the US.

    *…You buy a horse…*

  23. 23 BobS Jan 23rd, 2015 at 12:59 pm

    Strange analogy but ok, I’ll go with it. My horse died. In my quest to replace it I want the strongest, fastest, healthiest horse I can get. I get the best horse in the stable. In what comes across as an act of jealousy somebody wants to ignore all the fine attributes of my horse and critsize me for naming it “Trigger”. Clinging to lineage has nothing to do with. Polaris bought the company, they can do whatever they want with it. If Indian Motorcycles wants to use lineage to influence current products or if they want to put their name on something totally different, their company, their choice. If critisizing lineage is all you have then you don’t have much to critisize.
    I’m not here for a cyber dual either. You asked for constructive criticism, I provided it.

  24. 24 SIGFREED Jan 23rd, 2015 at 3:42 pm


    – Ask for const. crit. on mods to the POLARIS Scout – not on American Auto history.

    – But great, just as well, as Polaris are free to do as they wish, I will proceed as I wish and proceed with a POLARIS SCOUT.

    Thanks for taking us 360deg…

  25. 25 BobS Jan 23rd, 2015 at 4:08 pm

    That’s the thing about constructive criticism, it’s usually not something you want to hear. If people just tell you what you want them to, that’s called “sucking up”.

  26. 26 Xchoppers Jan 23rd, 2015 at 5:38 pm

    As soon as I get the Scout I have on order from Arlen Ness I will be starting to design new fenders and other parts which will bring the Scout into the retro custom / chopper world. Whoever commented that the Scout is lacking power must not have ridden one. I own a Triumph Rocket III, Suzuki M109R, Honda VTX1800, Ducati Diavel and a 1700 Thunderbird so I know a fast bike when I ride one. The 2015 Scout I rode had lots of power! That’s why I ordered it last September.

  27. 27 Jeff Duval Jan 26th, 2015 at 9:12 am

    Mike, there is some sense and value in what your are suggesting but that “wave” of making motorcycles look like fashion accessories is alien to the old adage of “Engineering with Flair”… However, I respect your advice and will try to implement it ASAP. PS: Keep smiling…

  28. 28 smilinphoenix Feb 16th, 2015 at 11:27 pm

    I bought my Scout because it blew my old 1998 Sportster 1200 away. Yeah, I put 80K miles on my Sporty and lots of good memories… Sold it. If you don’t like it, don’t ride it or look. The 2015 Scout already has scads of aftermarket goodies, including fenders, seats, other pipes and panoply. I won’t think of you when I am hitting the twisties.

  29. 29 Keith Feb 19th, 2015 at 9:02 pm

    as in women, you can wipe your but with looks. I have been waiting for my Scout to be delivered. lot of disappointment in factory delay. I am looking at the inside of this bike, cant wait to test this new motor and getting some good sounding pipes. every thing Polaris put a motor in usually screams, snowmobile, quads, they have HP and reliable, hope this Scout will prove to be the same. do like performance but need reliable more than anything. I ride almost every day to work and leave work and just love going.

  30. 30 Derek Apr 27th, 2015 at 8:49 am

    I own a new Scout, #1 it’s fast, #2 I can’t turn around without somebody stopping me and telling me how awesome my bike is, #3 it is a fantastic design with great lines, but hey if you don’t like the Scout you can keeping riding your chrome museums.

  31. 31 JR May 28th, 2015 at 12:30 pm

    I keep seeing people saying things like ugly fenders. People look up some history on the scout and realize that the bike is based on the ww II bike not the sportster looking one eventhough I loved the look of that one too I now own one and love it , the bike is very fast and responsive looks are different but I think polaris did an awesome job of bringing the bike back to life. Get on one that’s broke in and you will enjoy the ride they can’t keep them in the show rooms and if you see one there it will probably have a sold sign on it.

  32. 32 reelman Jun 7th, 2015 at 6:27 pm

    get on one, I own one put it up aginst any v-rod or sportster thing is a beast and if you don’t like the looks of it buy some thing else or go coustom but I drove mine out of the show room and home 135miles LOVE it thunder black don’t much care what people ride just so they ride!

  33. 33 John Lupperger Jul 19th, 2015 at 9:16 pm

    Have had my Scout for a couple months now and it is awesome. It has 32 more horsepower than a Sportster 1200 and handles way better. However, if you like the sound and look of the Sporty better, then by all means ride it. But, that doesn’t mean the Indian is ugly, or inferior in some way. That’s the great thing about motorcycles right now, you have choices. Just because you made a choice that’s right for you, doesn’t mean someone else’s choice that they made for themselves is wrong. It’s their CHOICE!!
