Indian Motorcycle becomes title sponsor of the Brooklyn Invitational and will have three custom Scout Bobbers on show

Along with its sponsorship, Indian will unveil three custom versions of the all-new Scout Bobber built by Keino Cycles, Kraus Motor Co. and skateboarding icon Steve Caballero in conjunction with Roland Sands Design.

Reid Wilson, Marketing Director – Indian Motorcycle said: “The Brooklyn invitational carefully curates an exhibition of incredible customs and from some of the world’s most renowned builders, providing the ultimate venue for us to showcase these custom Scout Bobbers and demonstrate the bike’s potential.”

“With its lean and mean, minimalist design, the Scout Bobber provides builders an ideal platform for customisation and we’re excited to see the creative interpretations brought to life by these three unique customisers.”

The all-new Scout Bobber was unveiled to the public during the X Games weekend in Indian’s hometown of Minneapolis.

“Strip it down” was the mantra and inspiration Indian Motorcycle used when developing the latest model in its iconic Scout lineup. A low-slung, blacked-out, minimalist that proves less is definitely more. 

Indian specifically chose these three well-known customisers, because each brings a uniquely distinct vision and signature style; the end result being three totally unique custom interpretations of the Scout Bobber.

Keino Sasaki and Satya Kraus carry long-standing reputations forged through years within the customisation and aftermarket industry.

Meanwhile, skateboard icon Steve Caballero has seen his profile increase steadily within the community thanks to his love for vintage American V-twins and his participation in festivals such as Wheels & Waves.

“I’ve long been a fan of Indian and the incredible history, legacy and influence the iconic brand holds within the motorcycle industry,” said Steve Caballero. “I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Indian, collaborating with my friends at Roland Sands Design in creating a version of the Scout Bobber that is uniquely my own.”

The Brooklyn Invitational is a motorcycle, photography and music showcase in the heart of New York City. Builders appear by invitation only. Hosted at Root Studios, doors open on Sept. 9 from 1-11pm ET and tickets run for $15.
