Bollywood actor Rohit Roy recently added a new high-end motorcycle to his garage. The actor has purchased the famous Indian Scout Bobber. Rohit took the delivery of his Scout Bobber at an event in Mumbai. It’s said that the actor has bought this motorcycle to replace his 1832-cc Honda Rune. The Indian Scout Bobber costs Rs 11.99 lakhs.
The Scout Bobber is based on the regular Scout but looks a bit bolder owing to the several styling updates it offers. The fenders are sleeker and the motorcycle comes with a flat-track handlebar. The motorcycle also gets a leather cover for the seats and knobby tires. The latter makes it a tad more accomplished on the rough terrain. Also, the foot pegs have been pushed forward by 38 mm for a more aggressive riding position. Rohit’s Indian Scout Bobber features an all-black paint scheme and looks pretty aggressive.
The Indian Scout Bobber is powered by the same 1311-cc, V-twin engine that powers the standard Scout. The engine outputs a maximum power of 99 bhp along with a peak torque of 98 Nm. The motor comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The motorcycle rides on a set of new telescopic forks up front, while the rear suspension has been lowered by 25 mm. Both the wheels get disc brakes and ABS is offered as standard.
Like we said, the actor has replaced his Honda Rune with the Indian Scout Bobber. The Rune is a limited edition motorcycle that was produced way back in 2003. It’s based on the Valkyrie and only 600 units were ever made. Hence, it’s sort of a collectible for motorcycle connoisseurs. Powering the motorcycle is a 1832-cc liquid-cooled, six-cylinder engine that outputs 117 BHP of maximum power and 167 Nm of peak torque. While the Rune is special owing to its exclusivity, the actor decided to replace it with the Scout Bobber as the latter is more practical for regular use. Rohit says he found little time to ride the rather bulky Honda Rune. Hence, he decided to replace it with a motorcycle that he can ride more often.
