Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, and the Jack Daniel Distillery, America’s first registered distillery, have announced the availability of a Limited Edition Jack Daniel’s Indian Chieftain, the second such collaboration. The first was in 2016, when the two brands came together to create the Limited Edition Jack Daniel’s Indian Springfield and Indian Chief Vintage in celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Jack Daniel Distillery. All 150 available motorcycles sold out in only eight hours.
Designed in conjunction with Klock Werks Kustom Cycles of Mitchell, South Dakota, the Limited Edition Jack Daniel’s Indian Chieftain was designed with a sleek, aggressive style that is sure to turn heads. The individually numbered motorcycles offer a wide array of custom details, highlighted by a one-of-a-kind white and black crystal paint job with charcoal colored accents inspired by Jack Daniel’s unique charcoal-mellowing process. A host of Jack Daniel’s “Old No. 7” logos and custom badging are interspersed throughout the bike, including a logoed billet driver and passenger floorboards, leather tank pouch, aluminum tank console with motorcycle number, and unique cam, primary and air intake covers. The crowning detail is a handmade, pure silver Jack Daniel’s horn cover badge, hand-crafted by the team at Montana Silversmith, exclusively developed and produced only for this motorcycle. The bike also carries an inscription of Jack Daniel’s “Bottles and Throttles Don’t Mix” mantra to remind riders that drinking and riding are meant to be enjoyed separately.
In addition to the bike’s unique custom-branded accents, the Limited Edition Jack Daniel’s Indian Chieftain also features a 19-inch, contrast cut front wheel with an open fender and a host of premium touring amenities including LED headlight and driving lights, power adjustable flare windshield, gloss black front and rear highway bar, 200-watt premium audio system with fairing and saddlebag speakers, and Indian Motorcycle’s proprietary Ride Command infotainment system.
Only 100 Limited Edition Chieftains will be made available globally, and each comes with a commemorative American flag handmade from Jack Daniel’s barrel wood. Each flag will be customized to include the owner’s name, motorcycle number and VIN. The individually numbered bikes carry a U.S. MSRP of $34,999 (California models add $250 for California emissions) and a Canadian MSRP of $42,499. Each comes with a two-year unlimited mileage factory warranty and free membership in the Indian Motorcycle Riders Group for one year.
To order one, please visit or call your local Indian Motorcycle dealership starting at noon Eastern on March 14. The motorcycles will be produced and sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Specific motorcycle numbers may not be reserved. Each will be hand-painted and built, with delivery occurring no later than August 2017.
