Indian Motorcycle and Jack Daniel Pair Up for Straight and Neat Order

Indianfire

Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, announced the availability of Limited Edition Jack Daniel’s Indian Springfield and Indian Chief Vintage motorcycle models. This partnership brings together two of America’s most iconic brands that share a mutual commitment to independence, originality, and American craftsmanship dating back more than a century. Created to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Jack Daniel Distillery, which was registered in 1866, each model will be produced in extremely limited numbers not to exceed 150 total units and will benefit U.S. Military personnel and their families through the “Operation Ride Home” program.

Designed in conjunction with Klock Werks Kustom Cycles of Mitchell, S.D. to offer classic styling, premium features, touring comfort and custom detailing, the new hard-bagged Indian Springfield and the leather-bound Indian Chief Vintage are the first-ever production vehicles to feature Jack Daniel’s livery and its “Bottles and Throttles Don’t Mix” responsibility campaign. The first unit of the limited edition series, an Indian Chief Vintage version that was the custom painted prototype built by Klock Werks, will be auctioned at the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction on October 6-8 at the Mandalay Bay resort.  All proceeds from the auction will benefit Operation Ride Home, which assists active duty U.S. military personnel in traveling home to visit their families. More information can be found at Barrett-Jackson.com.

The individually numbered 2016 Limited Edition Jack Daniel’s Indian Springfield and Indian Chief Vintage models are available to order today at your local Indian Motorcycle dealership.  Both motorcycles share an MSRP of $29,999 (California models add $250 for California emissions), a Canada MSRP of $37,499, and will be available for International order except in Brazil. Both models come with a custom-printed Jack Daniel’s whiskey barrel top to commemorate each bike, a two-year unlimited mileage factory warranty, and free membership in the Indian Motorcycle Riders Group for one year.

Both models feature an array of genuine Indian Motorcycle accessories and custom accessories, as well as Jack Daniel’s-inspired custom paint and logos, badging, leather saddle and saddlebags. Each fender is also inscribed with the names of the seven Master Distillers who have overseen the Jack Daniel’s distilling process over its 150-year history. Finally, an inscription of Jack Daniel’s “Bottles and Throttles Don’t Mix” mantra reminds riders that drinking and riding are meant to be enjoyed separately.

Final customization work was designed and completed by Brian Klock and his inspired team at Klock Werks in Mitchell, S.D.

To order one of these highly sought after limited edition motorcycles, please visit or call your local Indian Motorcycle dealership from March 4 to April 4. Only 150 motorcycles will be produced and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Specific motorcycle numbers may not be reserved.  Each of these motorcycles will be hand-painted and built, with delivery occurring no later than August 2016.

“This is the first time in Jack Daniel’s history that we have aligned with a vehicle manufacturer,” said Dave Stang, Director of Events & Sponsorships for Jack Daniel’s. “Using these new, limited edition motorcycles to help the ‘Operation Ride Home’ program serves as the perfect pairing for these two classic American brands.”

“Indian Motorcycle and Jack Daniels are ideal partners to work together,” said Steve Menneto, President of Motorcycles for Polaris Industries. “We share a respect for history and a common desire to promote responsible riding. These two models will be instant collectors’ items, and more importantly are fantastic motorcycles for everyday riding.”

INDIAN MOTORCYCLE REVEALS PRICES & UNVEILING OF ALL-NEW 2014 INDIAN CHIEF AT STURGIS RALLY

 Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, today continued its trip toward the historic unveiling of the completely new 2014 Indian Motorcycle. Following on the heels of the reveal of the all-new Thunder Stroke 111™ engine on March 9 at Daytona Bike Week, Indian Motorcycle is announcing additional details as it accelerates toward the upcoming launch.

Staying true to its heritage, the revival of the Indian Motorcycle brand will debut with the introduction of the 2014 Indian Chief. First introduced in 1922, the legendary Indian Chief is historically the brand’s most popular selling model and is widely recognized by motorcycling enthusiasts around the world as one of the most iconic motorcycles ever produced. The Indian Chief is the flagship of the brand’s 112-year product lineup, and it has come to proudly represent the spirit of the Indian Motorcycle brand.

“We are honored to make today’s important announcements at this time, as it was roughly 112 years ago that the very first Indian Motorcycle prototype was demonstrated to the press on the streets in Springfield, Massachusetts,” said Vice President of Polaris Motorcycles Steve Menneto. “We’re especially proud to reveal that our inaugural model will be the iconic Indian Chief. Riders around the world will be thrilled to know their choice in American motorcycles will now come in the form of an all-new Indian Chief.”

In addition to announcing the first model to come out of the Spirit Lake, Iowa production plant, pricing for the all-new 2014 Indian Chief will start at an MSRP of $18,999. Inventory is expected to be available at Indian Motorcycle dealerships throughout North America later in the year. Additional Indian Motorcycle dealerships will be opening across the country this summer to accommodate bike demand and service needs.

To view a short video clip in support of today’s announcement, or to see a silhouette image of the flagship 2014 Indian Chief, visit the Indian Motorcycle website.

“When Polaris Industries acquired this brand two years ago, our goal from the outset was to leverage our engineering, manufacturing and operational prowess as a market leader in powersports to design and build a truly exceptional motorcycle that represents the perfect balance of legendary heritage and brilliant, state-of-the-art engineering and technology,” continued Menneto. “All of us at Indian Motorcycle are very proud to offer the 2014 Indian Chief at a starting price of $18,999. We set out to make the power and heritage of this beautiful new bike available at a price point that is competitive and more accessible to people who are looking for authenticity and choice in American motorcycles.”

The new Indian Chief will be revealed at the 73rd annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota, which runs August 3-11, 2013. Specific details on the launch timing will be announced this summer. The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, the world’s largest motorcycle rally, was started in 1936 by an Indian Motorcycle club, the famed Jackpine Gypsies. Indian Motorcycle is proud to reclaim that heritage and share the historic reveal of the 2014 Indian Chief with the rider community at  the 2013 Sturgis Rally.
