The two household names announced they would offer a Limited Edition Jack Daniel's Indian Chieftain. As mentioned, the new custom-inspired Chieftain marks the second year the two iconic American trailblazers have joined forces to build a unique V-twin-powered celebration of American craftsmanship.
Last year, Limited Edition Jack Daniel’s Indian Springfield and Chief Vintage models were built to celebrate the famous distillery’s 150th anniversary. As with last year’s offering, the Indian Chieftain limited edition will be designed by Klock Werks.
‘The motorcycle brings together two brands that share a mutual commitment to independence, originality, and ingenuity,’ the announcement reads.
The Limited Edition Jack Daniel's Indian Chieftain takes advantage of the model’s sleek, aggressive style, with the hope the extremely limited edition motorcycle turns 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 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.
As this is a limited edition, only 100 are 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 an MSRP of $34,999, with California models adding $250 for California emissions and a Canada 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.
Interested riders should be at their local Indian Motorcycle dealership by Noon Eastern on March 14th when orders will be taken for the limited edition. Only 100 motorcycles will be produced and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. It’s important to note, specific motorcycle numbers may not be reserved and as each of these motorcycles will be hand-painted and built, delivery could take up to August 2017.
A motorcycle from last year’s limited run was auctioned, riding away with a $150,000 bid.
