If you are one of the CoD faithful who stayed up until midnight last night in order to be among the first to play the brand new WWII game then you may have stumbled across the Indian Scout 741B. The period correct Scout was used by the Allied Forces during World War II and game producers Activision teamed up with Indian Motorcycle for “authentic in-game integration”.
authentic in-game integration
Full disclosure here, the last game I played to any degree of obsession was Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on the PS2 so I am not exactly an authority on modern gaming. However Custom Culture is something I thrive in which is why I’m far more interested in the extremely limited edition (only 5 being made) 741B Call of Duty replicas based on the Indian Scout Sixty. According to Indian “these exclusive 741B Call of Duty® edition Scouts have period-correct Olive Drab paint, weathered leather and custom army components, offering a modern take on the vintage 741B Scout”.
Before you rush out to your local Indian Dealer to order one, well, you can’t. The only way to get one is to win one but how this done is a little vague as the Indian Press Release only included the following links with entry details:

France > https://www.amazon.fr/Call-Duty-Limited-Indian-Motorcycle/dp/B075VFNN48
Australia > https://www.jbhifi.com.au/features/games/call-of-duty/
Call of Duty and Indian Motorcycle fans in the United States, Germany, United Kingdom, France and Australia will have the unprecedented chance-to-win one of these exclusive 741B Call of Duty® edition bikes in each country
Brilliant if you are in one of the above countries, not so great if you’re not. Yet according to the release “Call of Duty and Indian Motorcycle fans in the United States, Germany, United Kingdom, France and Australia will have the unprecedented chance-to-win one of these exclusive 741B Call of Duty® edition bikes in each country”. If you fancy your chances it’s probably best you keep an eye on the Indian Motorcycle website in your region for these details (which are not present at time of writing).
In the meantime take a look at the picture gallery below and drool over this pretty awesome looking machine.
