    i think it looks good as well but at 6'4 and 255 lbs those small bikes look like I"m riding a thong from behind.

    Nope, to me the ones in OP's post and video, and a couple others shown here, just don't flow. They look like they were an after-thought and just stuck on the front without any thought of style. Way too bulbous for the rest of the bike. Now those with the fairing in Pyro's pictures look much nicer.

    Damn this site is getting slow.

    I echo the sediments on the new Indian Scout's being too small. Polaris should of made something more like these IMO...Early 2000's Indian Scout...For some reason I can't post pics on the VOG anymore :(

    I wouldn't mind have a fixed fairing like that on my XCT..... I feel they should have from the beginning had a fixed fairing on these bikes.... Darn it if the gothic old engineering of the harley company can do it why not the more progressive Victory range.... I like it....

    I remember the scouts of the early 2000 era. They were actually pretty nice. More like a king pin regarding size.
    Indian got the motor right but dam even for me the bike is too small. The only Scout that appeals to me is the bobber. They are supposed to be more compact. To me even the Triumph Bobber is too small.

    I really like those HP Concept Scouts, but as others have noted, they are not sufficiently big for my big ass. Now, if these sported a 50% larger motor [110 cu in / 1800cc / 120rwhp], and a 33% to 40% larger frame & etc, I'd be riding one. Of course, I doubt that Indian would ever go this route as it would compete directly with their Thunderstroke 111 bikes. But a man can still dream...
