I rode the Scout at an Indian demo ride last Friday.
I am 5'11" and the seating position was comfortable, with legs stretched out on the pegs. Also, the seat was more comfortable and supportive than I expected.
The bike is fairly light (558 lbs. w/ a full tank of gas) and it feels light. I didn't get a chance to ride the bike hard at the demo event but it seemed to have plenty of power. Overall, the ride seemed similar to the H-D Night Rod Special, actually.
Instrumentation is bare bones and I much prefer the H-D turn signal buttons (but maybe I'm just used to it, though).
Lastly, this bike really isn't so cheap. You can configure it at the Indian Motorcycle website. It gets expensive quickly. Let me show you what I mean:
Base price: $11,299
Passenger pillion: $199.99
Passenger backrest: $499.98
Passenger pegs: $149.99
I'll stop there. Total so far: $13,599. A similarly equipped Sportster 1200 w/ a stage 1 kit would be pretty close in price.
It's nice to have more choice in the big bagger/touring v-twin market but I really wasn't particularly impressed with the Classic, Vintage, Chieftain or the Roadmaster. I don't see any incentive to move away from H-D at this point in time.
