Both bikes have great engines, good chassis, and decent suspension. The ergonomics on the Triumph were preferential for short distances, but the hard seat had me leaning toward the Scout for anything longer than about 20 minutes. The Bonnie’s styling, in my opinion, is much better, but the Indian’s versatility in the aftermarket balances that out. The Scout’s ability to stay on the road longer, due to both its more comfortable seat and larger gas tank, was a huge advantage. The Scout comes in about $1,600 cheaper than the Bonnie, but that’s because we were testing the Bobber Black model, with cruise control, better suspension, dual front discs, and other upgraded components—the base-model Bobber is only $400 more than the Scout and a bit more similar.
