There's a history behind the name of the model with that of Burt Munro. Entitled as the “The World's Fastest Indian” and the Scout as well. The iconic bike was the original choice for the Wall of Death. Apart from this, it was also used by a team of three epic racers, who were named as the “Wrecking Crew”.
