Indian Motorcycle and Jack Daniel’s have once again partnered for a celebration of American craftsmanship, and as you can see, they knocked it out of the park once again with their 2023 Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse.
The seventh limited-edition offering from these two iconic American brands, and developed in partnership with Klock Werks Kustom Cycles, this latest model draws its inspiration from Jack Daniel’s legendary Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey.
So much so that real Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 whiskey is mixed directly within the bike’s Super Graphite Metallic paint, something that they have never done before. Yes, you read that right, there’s actual whiskey in the paint! Seriously, how cool is that?
Hand painted and highly exclusive, Indian Motorcycle is only producing 177 bikes. Building upon the Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse’s mechanical style, where its steel-tube frame and powerful Thunderstroke 116 motor take center stage. The Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse includes several fine-touch details that make the bike truly one of a kind, including Jack Daniel’s branding throughout, and that special paint job.
“The Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse is yet another powerful and dynamic representation of the quality, craftsmanship and attention to detail that is core to both of our brands,” said Aaron Jax, Vice President for Indian Motorcycle. “This time, we decided to pay homage to Jack Daniel’s iconic Old No. 7 – the most iconic of Jack Daniel’s whiskeys – pairing it with the Chief Bobber Dark Horse. Both products are timeless American originals that share a combination of no-nonsense simplicity and premium quality.”
With a mean attitude and old-school muscle, the 2023 Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse features several design elements that make this bike truly exclusive. Jack Daniel’s branding will be found throughout the bike including the front and rear fenders, stamped on its solo seat, and on a Montana Silversmiths Badge with each bike’s unique serial number. For ultimate exclusivity, Jack Daniel’s signature can be found on the rear fender and etched into the exhaust. The 2023 Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse touts a tank with a single Indian Motorcycle Script “I” along both sides.
The Thunderstroke 116 engine features non-machined highlighted cylinders and heads, Cloud Silver painted rockers and pushrod tubes – giving it a throwback style with a raw metal look.
The limited-edition motorcycle also features white center rims, a solo-saddle seat, a tinted Klock Werks Flared Deflector, a Pathfinder 5 ¼ Adaptive LED Headlight, which monitors the bike’s lean angle to maximize nighttime illumination, three ride modes, and a four-inch touchscreen powered by RIDE COMMAND with Bluetooth, weather and traffic overlays, turn-by-turn navigation, and more.
For Jack Daniel’s and Indian Motorcycle, craftsmanship is about the fundamentals. And no two products better represent the fundamentals than Old No. 7 and the Indian Chief. For the Chief, the fundamental element is the frame. When designing this bike, it was important to get the stance right and maintain a simple, mechanical design. The Chief’s no-nonsense design is a modern homage to the glory days of motorcycling with iconic V-twin style, combined with modern performance and ride-enhancing technology. For Old No. 7, the fundamental element is cave spring water from Lynchburg, TN– clean, pure, crisp, and a constant 56-degrees – the very lifeblood of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee whiskey.
Starting at $24,499, the Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse will be exclusively available through Indian Motorcycle dealerships. The order window opens March 14, 2023 at 12:00pm EST, and will close once all bikes are sold.
