Indian Motorcycle is all set to launch the Scout Bobber on November 24 amidst the 2017 edition of India Bike Week (IBW). We at Express Drives, were the first ones to bring you the exclusive images of the India-bound model and now, our sources close to the development have sent us some more pictures. As revealed by our little birdie earlier, the Indian Scout Bobber will be launched in  the country at a starting price of Rs 13.09 lakh (ex-showroom, Ahmedabad). The motorcycle is clearly the sportiest and meanest looking motorcycle from the company's line up and it was unveiled globally in June this year. For those not in the know, the bookings for this motorcycle had already commenced at the company's dealerships across India at a token amount of Rs 50,000. The Indian Scout Bobber will land on Indian soil via the Completely Built Unit (CBU) route that somewhat justifies its price tag.
