I just got back from a demo ride and have to admit that the Scout Bobber is my favorite of the Scouts. It has a decent riding position, is physically pretty tight and compact (small, not a bad thing) and the motor is pretty responsive when you want it to be (down-shift to get it in it's powerband and it takes off). We were limited to 60mph on the highway portion of the ride but the motor was revving at only ~3200 rpm and the power seems to really come on above 5000 and goes above 8000. It almost reminds me of the XVS1100 but in a bike that felt physically smaller than my 650. The pegs/foot-controls are slightly forward as expected with this type of bike but they're also located higher and cornering clearance seems better than with most 'cruisers'. Thankfully the Scout does not feel like yet another bike trying to copy HD.
