The Scout is a recognizable motorcycle, and the Scout 101 is among the most famous and iconic of Indian. Engineer Mr. Franklin was not only a notorious racer of Indian motorcycles but also the designer of the Indian Chief – the bigger sister of the Indian Scout with an (even) more powerful engine.

What makes the Indian Scout 101 so popular? It likely comes down to several factors. Alongside the Chief, the Scout features the typical V-twin engine. Additionally, the Scout is recognizable by its frame. Here, we are dealing with an almost 100-year-old motorcycle. With its excellent weight distribution and low center of gravity, it is now a very popular classic motorcycle. Indian introduced the Scout 101 in 1928, the model we present to you here. Compared to the previous Scout, this Scout 101 had a redesigned frame with an (even) lower seat height, a longer wheelbase, and fortunately, this Indian was also equipped with the V-twin engine.

A notable feature was the “suicide clutch”—a foot-operated clutch coupled to a hand shifter connected to a three-speed gearbox. Although this operating method has long been abolished for safety reasons, it remains an important part of the Scout 101’s character. Indian produced this Scout from 1928 to 1931.
