Suspension specialists IKON have developed upgraded rear shock absorbers for Indian’s new Scout.
Like many cruisers, the Scout gives a somewhat unforgiving ride, due in part to the relatively low amount of suspension travel afforded by the low-slung rear end, and also because the standard shock absorbers are set to cope with two riders plus luggage. Since they are are non-adjustable for rebound, they cannot be fine-tuned to suit solo riding.
Styled to suit the traditional cruiser look, but with thoroughly modern features, the 7610 Series have a Triple Rate Progressive Spring – using a rate similar to the original – and Twin tube Hydraulic Damping for a consistent and comfortable ride on a variety of road surfaces.
Three Position Spring Preload and Four-Position Rebound Damping – adjustable by hand, no tools required – provides the fine control that enables the rider to set up the machine for road conditions and load.
IKON 7610 Shock Absorbers are individually dyno tested before leaving the Australian factory, to ensure consistency and quality throughout. They’re also rebuildable and can be re-valved.
IKONs for the Scout come in two versions: SP9 – black body and chrome springs, or the SP14, which has black body and black springs. Prices start from just £279.30 per pair (including VAT).
