Do you love Jack Daniel’s? What about Indian Motorcycles and the Springfield® Dark Horse in particular? Wish you could combine your love for both of these American classics? Indian has just announced the 2019 Jack Daniel’s® Limited Edition Indian Springfield® Dark Horse® bike, which does just that.
JD, as the brand is fondly referred to, is the country’s oldest whiskey brewery, so it was natural to celebrate their best whiskey by combining it with Indian, one of the country’s oldest motorcycle companies. Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select is a super-premium blend that uses only barrels specially chosen from certain select barrelhouses at the Jack Daniel’s Distillery in Lynchburg, Tenn. Like the 2019 Jack Daniel’s® Limited Edition Indian Springfield® Dark Horse® bike, Single Barrel Select’s flavor is distinct and unique due to the handcrafted nature of the whiskey.
The bike has a whiskey barrel themed two-tone paint scheme using Heavy Metal Crystal with Thunder Black Vivid Crystal highlights and Steel Gray graphics, topped off with a Single Barrel Select wood grain finish. The Jack Daniel’s theme is taken further with custom Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel badging, with their signature reminder that “Bottles and Throttles Don’t Mix” on the fender. Premium genuine leather is used on the seat and tank strap, both of which are also adorned with Jack Daniel’s® logos. Finally, the rider and passenger floorboards sport engraved Single Barrel Select floorboards.
Slammed saddlebags that are new designs, precision-machined custom wheels and 12-inch mid-rise ape-hanger handlebars give the bike an edgier and more aggressive styling. Premium add-ons include a tinted flare windscreen that’s removable, gloss black finishes throughout and LED lights from front-to-rear. For power, they’ve used Indian Motorcycle’s first ever “straight-from-the-factory” 116 cubic-inch Thunder Stroke engine, which delivers head-snapping power.
The lucky 177 who are chosen to be owners of this limited edition bike will also take home some themed gifts to go with their bikes. The first of these is a commemorative wooden Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select bottle decanter that’s made using the same oak barrels in which the whiskey was aged. This also comes with two custom branded rocks glasses and includes a spot that’s padded with the same leather used on the bike for your bottle of Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel. The gift and a custom Montana Silversmith badge will have the bike’s production number (#001-#177) engraved on them.
