Indian Motorcycle and Jack Daniel’s have collaborated for the third consecutive year to produce a limited edition motorcycle. The two brands joined hands with Klock Werks Kustom Cycles to create the bike. The two brands introduced the Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Scout Bobber, drawing inspiration from Jack Daniel’s very own Fire Brigade. Jack Daniel’s is the only distillery in the world with its own fire brigade, which is staffed entirely by employee volunteers. The limited edition bike was designed as a tribute to people who are committed to keep their communities safe, as well as to emergency medical services (EMS) professionals everywhere.
Only 177 of the limited edition bikes will be built globally, and each bike will be individually numbered and accented with Jack Daniel’s Fire Brigade themes. The bike has a two-tone matte black paint and has real 24-carat gold graphics on the tank and fenders. The 24-carat gold carries over to the rest of the design and finds itself on the Fire Brigade emblem on the tank and the “Bottles and Throttles Don’t Mix” emblem on the front fender. Additional changes include a leather single seat with “Jack Daniel’s”.
Bookings will begin on March 13 across Indian Motorcycle dealerships worldwide and considering the fact that only 177 will be made, you better keep your checkbook ready if you are as taken by this gold and black beauty. The 2016 Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Springfield and Chief Vintage bikes sold out in less than eight hours and the 2017 Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Chieftain sold out in less than 10 minutes. So, if you are still thinking, you rather not.
