    I think it looks great and am willing to ride any motorcycle offered up. Owning it, now that's a completely different question.

    Nope. Of course, I don't fit on a Scout, so the answer for me is easy. If I did fit on A Scout - Not sure. It's not bad. I would have to ride it and see how the fairing changes things. But it is still an Indian, so nope.

    Well, yeah....
    Size can be an issue. Why they made that bike to tiny, I do not know .

    Kinda cool mod.

    Hope they make a full size bike with that engine.

    I think it's pretty cool for a person small enough to ride it.

    HP Concept made some bagger Scouts too.

    I really like that top one. Make it a full size bike and I would say it looks like what the latest greatest model on XC should have come out as.

    I do think the rear needs some work. I would also like to see a more Vic diamond shaped headlight in the front.

    My 13 yr old son fits okay on a scout, but not for much longer. At 6-5 and 255 lbs, i feel like I'm trying to sit on a kids bike when I sit on a Scout

    I like all these pictures. My thing is I want tunes in my fairing, so if its just plain on the inside kinda like the first looks I think it's wasted space.

    These are great. The top one looks amazing. The original OP pic did nothing for me with that RG looking fairing on the bike. Never never never make and Indian or a Victory look like a Harley !
    The Japanese couldn’t do it why would an American MC try ??? Ughhhhh the irony of it all.

    I couldn’t tell. Was there a stereo option. If so no emphasis on it ? 2 reasons to have a fairing IMO....
    Wind and weather protection and a stereo plus additional storage. Just not a HD looking fairing on an Injin. No no no.

    Wow--looks like a Victory!
    This fairing would be a natural on an Octane.

    Yep I'm more of a fan of the Cross Country style fairing.

    I mean if you want to turn a scout into a road glide. Might as well buy the road glide; you'll have the same amount of room.
