I don't want to be debbie downer, but the Indian rep I spoke with at the dealership said no bikes delivered before December. I've been known to be wrong once or twice before ...I hope I am this time. Putting on some miles in '14 would be awesome!
3 Dealers I spoke to yesterday all said December. One went into more detail and said pre-orders should get bikes in earlier December while the general release for non- preorders should be around by Christmas.
Ordered my on 09.05.14 - the Dealer said December - unlike many dealers, this dealer ONLY deals with Indian Motorcycles and none of the other Polaris line - e.g. Victory Motorcycles, Polaris Jet Ski, etc. - or anything else for that matter, strictly Indian Motorcycles. Maybe some of these other dealers are confusing the earlier dates with another product?
Anyway, if you get your Scout earlier, I will be happy for you. That means maybe mine will becoming earlier.
I just got off the phone with Indian of the Rockies (changed my pre-order to omit the bazooka Stage 1 pipes as I decided to hold out for the swept pipes) and the latest word is that the earliest pre-orders "could" start showing up at dealers as early as the end of this month. I doubt that I'm one of the earliest pre-orders as I didn't get mine in until August 20th, but hopefully you guys that ordered earlier will get your bikes really soon. Then again, take this with a grain of salt just in case the local dealership is blowing smoke.
