Dirty Bird Indian Scout

If the 2015 Indian Scout in stock form didn’t manage to rattle a few heartbeats, Dirty Bird Concepts have sprinkled the exemplary Scout with more dash and oomph. Dirty Bird Concepts owner, John Shope says “When I saw the new Scout I knew it was going to be a real player on the market – and when I had a chance to ride it – I was totally blown away by how great the engine and handling is.” Excited, he kickstarted the customisation calling it “Scout 42”.

Coming to the changes- at the front, the Dirty Bird Indian Scout was given a custom fairing, front fender and a new chin spoiler around the radiator to give it a tighter look. Stock handlebars gave way to forward canted Renthal handlebars giving the rider a more aggressive stance and stock pegs were swapped with custom bear claw footpegs for added boot grips. The seat was re-covered in a diamond pattern. The stock wheels were replaced with custom rims- though retaining the size so as not to disturb the acclaimed handling of the motorcycle. The suspension too was left un-tinkered.

The “Scout 42” was given a new paintjob of candy blue shade with tape fading style alongwith grey inserts well complimented by a darkened tail light. The number plate was moved to the sides with the levers, chain guide and the sprocket covers being treated to a drilled pattern. A reconfigured blacked out compact exhaust replaces the stock unit that Dirty Bird says “sounds really nasty”.

Neat job that!
