The launch took place at the Auto Hangar India Private Limited, Polaris’s authorized dealership, where the Scout Sixty is priced Rs. 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). This price is lower by about Rs. 2 lakh from the Indian Scout.

Polaris offers the Scout Sixty in three colors: Thunder Black, Indian Motorcycle Red and Pearl White. The motorcycle will be available for sale from next month in cities and metros as Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh and Gurgaon.

The V-Twin engine of the Scout Sixty comes with a slightly lower displacement of 983 cc (from the 999 cc of the Indian Scout) or 60 cubic inch, where the name Sixty comes from. The power output is 78 bhp and 88.5 Nm of torque at 5800 rpm, mated to a 5-speed transmission. The Indian Springfield, launched a couple of months ago, is also powered by the same engine.

The telescopic front fork suspension is retained from its predecessors, while the rear wheel sports dual shock suspension. Safety equipment is taken care of with single dual caliper 298 mm front disc brake and single channel 298 mm disc in the rear. Besides the discs, there is also ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) for precise braking, as standard equipment.

The instrument cluster features mostly analogue dials with only the tachometer being digital. The split dual exhaust with crossover is very prominent. The low-slung seating is ergonomically designed for better comfort and handling. Polaris offers interesting accessories as the customizable handlebars and adjustable foot pegs and seats. The quick-release windshield, saddlebags and laced front and rear wheels are the highlights in terms of the accessories.

The Indian Scout Sixty will get assembled from the Polaris plants, after being brought down to India via the CKD (Completely Knocked Down) route. Customers can now book for the motorcycle, as bookings have started in all their dealerships across India.
