Victory Gunner or Indian Scout?
Okay, so maybe it's not an exact apples to apples comparison, but after seeing and sitting on a Scout I'm wondering if it might be a better bike for me.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to drive the Scout due to the weather (15 degrees above zero with icy roads), so I'm wondering if anyone out there in Gunner-land has driven the Indian Scout. If so, what are your thoughts? How does it compare to the Gunner?
Here are some basic (and subjective) pros and cons:
Sweet looking (IMHO slightly better looking than the Gunner)
$2,000 less than the Gunner
lighter and more maneuverable
it's an Indian (okay, so that might not mean much. But it is cool to own a bike with such history
smaller engine (after 65 mph I heard it picks up some vibration)
according to some reviews the riding position gets fatiguing after 50 miles or so
first year of production may yield some problems/recalls later
Power (longer rides would be more comfortable)
comfortable riding position (again, long rides would be comfortable)
not quite as nice looking as the Scout
Any additions to the pro/con list would be greatly appreciated.
