Chance Encounters: 2015 Indian Scout

Sep 04, 2014 - 2:21 PM - by NickJ


I am feeding the engine fuel with a heavy right foot, and swapping cogs with a right hand, as if the electricity of my excitement was driving my muscles exclusively. Up the on-ramp onto the 183. Now barreling down the highway toward the heart of ATX, more specifically the East side, my mind is a flurry with the questions that I have, the anticipation of the ride, the disbelief that a random, shot-in-the-dark email only hours earlier had actually reaped response. Seconds clicking past as minutes, and this might be the longest drive downtown that I have had yet. 183, 35, the exits begin to whiz by as if invisible. 38 1/2, Airport, 15th, 11th, and finally my exit, now I am ever so much closer.

Perhaps I should back up a bit. A month ago, we all heard about the 2015 Indian Scout, a bike that we have been waiting for, specifically here in the office. Once the Indian Roadmaster was announced, we almost immediately started seeing teasers stating that Indian was #NotDoneYet. Something was coming at Sturgis. Something that we were almost certain was the Scout. What shape? What motor? What price? We had to wait.


News from Sturgis came rushing down the canyon like a torrent from the great rain that was the Wall of Death. As soon as we had all of the information, I had my reservation in. Then, I had my money down (hopefully more on that to come at a later date). I had money down on a bike that I had only seen via 1's and 0's, and through the flicker of my monitor. This was crazy!

Present tense, the Sunday before Labor Day...

2015 Indian Scout Leaked!

Aug 02, 2014 - 5:49 PM - by NickJ


Looks like the LA Times dropped the ball on this one!

http://www.latimes.com/business/auto...801-story.html

The story has been taken down, but not before people were able to grab ahold of the image headlining the whole story! The brand new Indian Scout looks breathtaking! I was not sure what they were going to do with it. Would it be a scrambler; or a modern classic like the Bonnevilles, Royal Enfields; or would it be a straight shot at the Harley Sportster? Looks like they are gunning straight for the bread and butter of Harley's lineup!

Ready to Make History: Polaris Slingshot is a Reality

Jun 30, 2014 - 12:41 PM - by NickJ


Today is the day that so many of us who have been watching this secret project from Polaris finally get a taste of sweet sweet validation! We thought that Polaris has had something up their sleeves and today we got the word that the Polaris Slingshot is indeed going to be a reality, and the full release is going to be on 27th of July!

From what we can tell, and what has been rumored, the Polaris Slingshot is a street legal machine that has an open top, and apparently no doors. The Slingshot, from what we can tell from the Patent Drawings and Spy Shots, is a 3-wheeled vehicle that has two wheels up front and one in the rear. We are not 100% sure if it is a front wheel drive car, or rear just yet.

The details are a little light, but I can tell you from the screen caps from the Polaris Slingshot Teaser Video is this: Polaris is ALL IN on this new product, and they have abandoned the CVT in favor of a manual shift transmission... I say that they are "All In" due to the fact that you can spy in the video that they will likely have a full line of Slingshot Branded outerwear based on the fact that the driver is wearing gloves. This leads me to believe that the slingshot is, as rumored, open topped with no roof available!


Also, you see the driver is swapping cogs with his right hand instead of the "foot down and go" operation of a CVT transmission in virtually all of their full line of vehicles. An interesting departure for sure! I for one am excited to think that they have three pedals on the floor and a shifter for your right hand!

The next video is slated to release on July 7th, and subsequent videos all the way up to the full release on the 27th of July! It might just be a second Independence day for many of us!

As we have been watching the Slingshot for over a year, we have the premier place to read all of the news and rumors of what this new machine is and will be capable of! Polaris Slingshot Forum
