All I can say is WOW! I was not expecting the new Scout to run like it did. Took one on a demo ride yesterday to see how it compares to my Chief . Totally different animal. More like a comfortable sport bike. This thing was a rocket. Never got it out of 3rd gear! Instant torque. I don't think there is ANY bike in its price range with this kind of performance! If anyone gets a chance to try one....do it! Post your thoughts and let us know what YOU think.
