Indian Motorcycle has unleashed the most aggressive Indian Scout to date – the new Scout Rogue. With so many other Scout family members to choose from, the dilemma was to set the Rogue apart. And guess what? Indian Motorcycle seems to have done just that because the Scout Rogue is packed with aggressive styling elements. Not to forget, the sinister dark shade will not feel out of place if a certain Dark Knight from Gotham city decides to include it in his garage.

The Indian Scout Rogue can be had in three different monochromatic shades including Black Smoke Midnight, Sagebrush Smoke, or Stealth Gray. It also gets an adorable quarter fairing up front that makes it look like a baby bat. Other styling elements include ape-hanger handlebars and a pair of blacked-out, round mirrors. In its stock form, there’s no provision of accommodating a pillion. The voyage that would lead to the dark world must be accomplished alone, Indian believes. And then there’s a blacked-out 19-inch front wheel, retaining the look as mean as the handling.

The Scout Rogue derives its oomph from a 1,133cc V-twin engine that is rated to put down 94 horsepower at 8,000 rpm, and 97 newton-meters of torque at 5,600 rpm. To stop you dead in the tracks, there’s single 298mm floating rotor brake discs both at the front and rear. Up front, you get a two-piston caliper, while in the back, it is a single affair. Suspension duties are handled by a 41mm telescopic fork up front with 120mm of travel, and dual adjustable shocks in the rear offering 51mm of travel. Ground clearance stands at a measly 129mm so you’d best stay clear of nasty speed-breakers astride your Rogue. Indian has only mentioned the dry vehicle weight for this bike, which is listed at 241 kilograms.

It is stark clear that the Scout Rogue doesn’t revolutionize the Scout line but it does offer a head start for any customer who might be eyeing this sort of customization. Rogue’s styling is well in line with current trends in the cruiser market. Take the recently unveiled Harley-Davidson Low Rider ST for instance, that makes do with its similar headlight accessory and wheel sizing.

Expect Indian Motorcycle to unleash the Scout Rogue on the Indian streets sometime this year.
