Its top speed reflects its enormous power, making it ideal for cruising. Moreover, you will get a great throttle response as it can go 0 – 60 mph in just 3.7 inches and 0 – 100 mph in just 9.76 seconds. 

Engine and Performance

It has a DOHC 1133 cc 60-degree V-twin engine with eight valves. It has a liquid cooling system to prevent the engine from overheating. Its engine also has a 3.898 in. x 2.898 in. (99.0 mm x 73.6 mm) Bore x Stroke ratio and 10.7:1 compression ratio.

Moreover, it has a six-speed manual transmission powered by a wet multi-plate clutch. Lastly, it has closed-loop fuel injection with 60 mm throttle bodies for the optimal amount of air and fuel mixture delivery.

Suspension & Handling 

It has a 41 mm telescopic front fork with 4.7 inches of wheel travel and Dual rear shocks with 2.0 inches of wheel travel. The rear suspension is adjustable for spring preload so that you can adjust it according to the weight and route condition. 

Further talking about the handling, it is just average, nothing to impress due to its soft and short suspensions. The seat transmits any hard/sharp bump to the rider efficiently, so riding carefully on this bike is essential. It can be really uncomfortable if you are going off-road on it, although it’s a good bike to cruise on asphalt roads.

Brakes & Tires 

It has a 298 mm disc with a 2-piston caliper for the front wheel and a 298 mm disc with a 1-piston caliper for the rear wheel. These brakes also have an ABS control option, providing extra protection when skidding. Although these brakes are adequate, there are a lot of better choices in the market that are sharp and quick. 

Coming on the tires, it has a 19 x 3.5 inches front tire and a 16 x 3.5 inches rear tire. Both of the tires are cast black, providing aesthetic looks to the bike. Aside from that, they are also adequate, providing a good connection with the road for better grip.

Understanding the Targeted Audience

Indian Scout Rogue is a mid-sized cruiser that comes with a manageable weight and pleasing design. Although this bike has moderate weight, it is not suitable for beginners. They should consider gaining some experience on low-power cycles. In this way, they can build their riding skills and then consider Rogue. However, moderate or expert-level riders can easily ride on it.

Pricing and Competition

It is available at the price of just $12,749. For some reason, if you are not able to buy it in brand new condition, then you can also buy its pre-loved version readily available in the market with the price range of $10,299 – $11,000. 

Aside from that, according to its features and price range, competitors are Harley-Davidson Nightster and Honda Rebel 1100. In comparison to all of these three, the Rebel 1100 may be a clear winner due to its comparatively low price and smooth ride due to its good quality suspensions. Plus, its brakes are also accurate and provide good performance when applied.

Final Thoughts

Indian Scout Rogue is a mid-size cruiser with enormous power and aesthetically pleasing looks. As it is an intermediate cruiser, you will not get premium suspensions or brakes. You may feel bumps and jolts through the seat. However, because brakes are not shaped well enough to stop the bike immediately, you have to ride carefully.

Comparatively, the price is quite affordable so that anyone can buy and enjoy its ride. Lastly, it is not a beginner bike due to its weight and power; however, it is suitable for riders at moderate and expert levels.
