Mustang Makes Replacement Seats For Scouts!

 

IndianBeersmSomething has been brewing around Mustang Seats for months. But we kept the news bottled up until recently. You may have noticed a series of social media posts featuring historic Indian motorcycles shot in a local museum and cryptic hints to “scout around” for more clues. The Facebook hints finally came to a head with the official announcement that Mustang now has seats for the new Indian Scout. Not just one seat, either… several seat styles and both black and brown colorways. Hopefully this makes the suspense worth the wait.

However, we didn’t want to make an announcement until we were sure that we had everything right. After all, the birthplace of Indian Motocycles is in Springfield, Massachusetts, less than 30 minutes from Mustang’s historic factory in Three Rivers, so we have always had a soft spot for the brand around here. As much as Mustang may have wanted to be first to market with a seat for the new Scout, we would not comprise on what went into the seat before the Mustang name went on it!

MMP15_Scout_tan_34viewIndian Motorcycle’s new Scout combines classic styling cues from the 1920s with modern day refinements and performance upgrades. Mustang’s new line of seats and related accessories for the Scout follow this “best of both worlds” philosophy. This allows you to combine the latest in comfort with the look of yesteryear. Whether you opt for an all-day comfort two-up or flying solo for short hops,  Mustang now has Indian Scout riders sitting pretty. A choice of a Touring seat or our low and lean RunAround™ cater to to completely different types of riders.

The Touring seats feature Mustang’s medium-density foam, precisely molded to the shapes and angles needed for optimal cruising comfort combined with our durable steel-reinforced, marine-grade fiberglass baseplates.The 13″ wide solo and 8.5″ wide passenger seat provide ample room for both the pilot and passenger without compromising the clean lines of the bike.

 

While you can’t judge a book by its cover, Mustang’s seat covers are pretty telling as to the over all quality that goes into the Scout saddles. The cover designs are brand-new concepts developed by our designers just for the Scout. Available in classic black or the new Indian brown vinyl, a distinctive two-tone pattern complements the look of the motorcycle. The distinctive center stripe ties the solo, passenger seat and the mini driver backrest (developed specifically for the Scout) together visually.

We heard plenty of requests for both brown and for real leather seats when we asked Indian owners what they might want in a replacement seat. The market has spoken, and Mustang has delivered.

 

For riders preferring to cruise closer to home, we suggest the RunAround for bar-hopper style bikes. Mustang’s engineers developed this 9.5″ wide solo to be low, lean and mean as possible so you will look classy and cool all around town. The vinyl cover features distinctive styling and is also available in black or brown. Whatever your style, Mustang has an option for your Scout that will let you show off the look and go the extra mile…. Cheers!
