It would be really nice to have some polaris rep come on once in awhile to give us the facts but it would be less entertaining.........it appears the more Indiana talks about things the deeper they get....

I know the government & Polaris wants to shut this up, but I have it on good authority that the missing Scouts were scooped up by UFO's and are now being ridden on the planet Nearfop. Remember... you heard it here first!

This is odd. Several Indian dealers that I have been to lately have a Scout or two setting around, actually "for sale". Were these bikes turned down by their original owners? Or have you guys just ordered special custom made bikes? Or did some of the dealers get early orders placed on the Scout so they could have some extras while the rest of you set around waiting? There's at least 12 - 15 Chieftans, Classics, Roadmasters, etc at nearly every dealer I visit.

I placed my order in oct. Canceled in dec.. I'm still getting updates.

This came yesterday.



Dear Jeffrey,
We are writing today to update you on the status of your Indian Scout. Before we do that, we want to say again, we appreciate your patience during our production delays.As you know, manufacturing and delivering the highest quality 2015 Indian Scout is our primary focus. Production delays were clearly not in our plan when we launched this great bike, however, providing the highest quality was in our plans from day one. I truly apologize to you, our valued Scout owner for your experience, but I’m confident that you’ll find the Scout worth the wait.As a team, we've corrected our paint system issue and have increased our capacity levels in our Spirit Lake, IA facility. In addition, we resolved the minor cosmetic issue that had previously hindered us from our ability to ship you product as quickly as anticipated. We are confident that every bike we ship meets our rigorous standards and that your Indian Scout will deliver on our promise of quality and exceed your expectations.
We know that not all of these bikes will ship to dealerships by the end of March, but please know that your Indian Scout is on its way. We are as excited as you are for you to get out and ride.We will continue to send updates to your dealer regarding the delivery details of every order as soon as they are available. If you have a question that your dealer is unable to answer or is not addressed in this communication, please call Indian Motorcycle at 877-204-3697.Sincerely,
Steve Menneto
Vice President, Motorcycles
Hell! husky! You may end up getting a free bike!

Ditto. Ordered in September, cancelled in February. What a smooth running, tight organization Polaris is. Maybe the entire executive suite ought to run for Congress... at least they would be in their element.

Hey LuftWolf, if you get one, and as you'll not be riding it, cos you got the mighty Gussi, And cos Indian will lose it and never trace it back to you, can I have dibs on the seat? I'm putting, or trying the ER seat on mine but sat on Silk without a seat and thought, hey this REALLY sinks you down into the bike! So, Buddy, Pal ,Friend, how about it?,.........

No problem Alpal. If Indian drops one off, the seat is yours. The way Polaris is " organized, " heck anything is possible.
