Just a day after the launch of
the Indian Springfield, the company has announced that it has come with a
limited Edition Jack Daniel’s version. SO when you are done with your bottle
and you are sober enough to throttle, there is a limited edition Jack Daniel’s
Indian Springfield waiting to be ridden.
This partnership between Jack
Daniel’s and Indian Motorcycle 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.
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.
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
The first 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 Oct. 6-8 at the Mandalay Bay resort.
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, as with all new Indian motorcycles,
include free membership in the Indian Motorcycle Riders Group for one year.
Powered by the highly regarded
Thunder Stroke 111 engine, each of these new 2016 model year motorcycles
uniquely maintains the style and craftsmanship Indian Motorcycle is known for
while offering the ultimate in versatility. Featuring quick release windshields
and saddlebags, both may be ridden as a stripped down cruiser or treated as a
capable touring model for longer getaways as they both feature cruise control,
ABS and a comfortable riding position.
fresh-from-the-factory Springfield showcase Indian Motorcycle’s renowned
valance front fender, studded genuine leather seat and brightly chromed forks,
headlamp and dual driving lights, handlebars, engine and down-firing exhaust.
However, the Limited Edition
Jack Daniel’s models bring these models to a whole new level with an array of
genuine Indian Motorcycle and Klock Werks accessories, as well as Jack
Daniel’s-inspired custom paint and logos, badging, seat and saddlebags.
Among the custom touches on
the Limited Edition Jack Daniel’s Indian Springfield and Chief Vintage are a
front fender featuring gloss black head dress housing and trim, commemorative
Jack Daniel’s 150th Anniversary logo and an inscription with the names of the
seven Master Distillers who have overseen the Jack Daniel’s distilling process
over its 150-year history.
There’s a fuel tank featuring
an Indian Script badge, coloured dual fuel caps, gloss black gauge cluster
housing and Jack Daniel’s 150th Anniversary branded leather pouch.
Viewing the profile of each
bike, the sculpted two-piece seats receive unique white stitching, side panels
that tout Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 logo, saddlebags branded with Jack Daniel’s
150th Anniversary logo and gloss black taillight housing. Finally, there’s an
inscription of Jack Daniel’s “Bottles and Throttles Don’t Mix” mantra.
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 it is has aligned with a vehicle
manufacturer,” said Dave Stang, Director of Events & Sponsorships for Jack
Daniel’s, adding that “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 the respect for history and the
desire to promote responsible riding. These two models will be instant
collectors’ items, and more importantly are fantastic motorcycles to ride every
