Why wait?



Yesterday everyone that had placed a deposit on the 2015 Scout were told “With luck expect your bike in Winter or April-May”,previously these people were told after the official launch at the Melbourne Moto-Expo last month the Scout  would start “trickling” out in December. In August I booked a trip to Tasmania and was told I would not get some of the accessories  that I wanted till early 2015 fair enough, but now the trip on the bike is cancelled. Indian mentioned a refund was available if I wanted it and they would cancel my bike, if Indian launches the 2016 range in August at Sturgis  it might pay to hang off for the “glitches” to be sorted plus your new machine will only be new for 3 months. Indian have mentioned the new Scout 2015 is a platform for a full range of  versions, I’d like wire wheels and a bigger fuel tank and footboards, potentially 2016 models may have this and if there a couple of grand dearer who cares? The last thing Indian needs is mass cancellations of 2015 versions but you know what a bit of up-front honesty would have helped everyone and had much happier customers these are mine and quite number of thoughts given to me by deposit owning Scout owners in the last 24 hours
