Throttle and bottle may not usually mix, but it does when Indian Motorcycle and Jack Daniel’s get together to produce yet another gorgeous limited-edition motorcycle like this Springfield Dark Horse.
For the fifth year, the two American icons have collaborated with Klock Werks Kustom Cycles.
In the US and Canada the bike will cost $36,999 (about $US52,600) and will only available in those countries via a lottery.
Indian Motorcycle Australia brand manager Peter Harvey says he is not sure how many will be allocated to Australia, but will have pricing and availability details in the next couple of days.
The “standard” Springfield Dark Horse costs $35,995 ride away, but this bike adds a ton of customisation.
Plus buyers will get a Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel bottle display and have their name engraved on the bike together with the limited-edition number and VIN.
Dark Horse sellout
Since these bikes usually sell out in just a few minutes of their release, it is advisable to get in early and register your interest with your closest Indian dealership.
