Recently encountered some confusion elsewhere online regarding the menu screens on the Indian Scout and realized that apparently it's only the 2018 models that have a DC battery voltage screen.

Figured it would be nice to have a thread that outlines ALL of the updates Indian have made between model years (excluding paint and color changes).

2016:
- MSRP raised to $11,299 USD

2017:
- Introduction of new starter model on April 20th (PN: 4017209)
- Introduction of progressively wound rear shocks (part number pending)
- Introduction of individual L & R turn signal indicators at gauge
- Introduction of new front brake (PN: 2206177) and clutch (PN: 2206390) lever assembly
- Improvements to turn radius (specification/part number pending)
- Minor changes to exhaust routing and bracket (part number pending)
- Introduction of lighter clutch springs (PN: 7044758)

2018:
- MSRP raised to $11,499 USD
- Introduction of cartridge style front forks (part number pending)
- Introduction of Pirelli Night Dragon tires
- Introduction of passenger seat and pegs
- Introduction of DC battery voltage screen

- Introduction of individual L & R turn signal indicators at gauge
- Introduction of new front brake (PN: 2206177) and clutch (PN: 2206390) lever assembly
- Improvements to turn radius (specification/part number pending)
- Minor changes to exhaust routing and bracket (part number pending)

Please feel free to point out mistakes or features/parts that I've missed, I will update the OP accordingly.

Also,

I have very little experience with the Bobber line so feel free to add anything you know.

I've also read that there were some changes to the belt guard design in 2017, if anybody has specific details please let me know.

Note to Mods:
Not sure where this thread belongs as it is meant for both models. Indian Scout Guides section maybe? Feel free to move the thread as necessary.

Thanks a lot! I found the difference in the muffler brackets yesterday in my 17’ 60 and was confused looking at a 2015 service manual

The front fork springs might have changed in the 2018 Scout 60, or at least Polaris has a different part number for 2018 springs on their website.

Edit: Also is it just me, or is there only one trip odometer on the 2018 60?

I'm actually seeing the same part number (2205821) for both the 2016 and 2017 Scout 69 front fork springs, maybe they weren't changed prior to the introduction of cartridge style.

However, for the Scout 60 I'm seeing part number 2205821 for 2016, part number 2207464 for 2017, and then a return to part number 2205821 in 2018... bizarre.

For anybody that is wondering where we check this:

Yeah it's kinda confusing. Still trying to figure out if I want to do any suspension upgrades. The stock setup doesn't seem that bad to me.

If anybody knows the part number difference between the 2016 and 2017 rear shocks please post them.

I have added (part number pending) to line items in the OP that are currently only based on claims.

Starting in all the later 2017 models,.....more tucked in rear exhaust pipe, a plastic swingarm pivot cover on the LH side, and substantially changed brake and clutch lever pivot mounts.

All Scout 69s have metal drive belt guards, while all 60s have plastic belt guards. Initial (2015) Scouts have gloss black Primary covers and Belt guards.

2018 60 models are missing the gloss black "Indian" cover on the clutch housing.

Only one on the 2018 69 as well.

i received this response regarding the front springs.
Hello,

Thank you for contacting Polaris Industries.

There was no mechanical difference between the 2016-2017 Scout 60 front springs. There was an internal part number change.

Did the 2017 have an RPM readout in the digital display? 2018 does, don’t remember it on the 2017.

I put the plastic swingarm pivot cover on my 2016 to cover the ugly ass bolt. Cost from the dealer was around $1.67

Some owners of older Scouts have noticed corrosion on that bolt. The cover prevents that from occurring.

Know any of the specifics? Different fuel pump or different fuel pump positioning in the tank?

Fuel pump for sure. I was told they replaced everything but the tank. Other than that I couldn’t tell you.

That's new news (?).
Never heard that one, please explain the symptoms?
First thing that comes to my mind is the fuel pickup issues that some people were having on the older Scout models:
https://www.indianmotorcycles.net/threads/scout-fuel-problem.207160/

Personally I haven't heard of that issue resurfacing on 2017/18 models, certainly haven't had that issue on my 2018 and I'm 20,000 miles in.

Hard to say though without an actual description of the issue from the dealer.
