Indian Motorcycle announced a series of compelling reasons members of the U.S. Armed Forces should make plans to visit the International Motorcycle Show this Saturday, December 14, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.
On Saturday only, Indian Motorcycle is sponsoring free admission to the show as a token of its appreciation to the dedicated men and women of the U.S. military. All personnel with a valid military ID will be admitted to the day’s festivities courtesy of Indian Motorcycle by presenting their credentials at the VIP Service Center.
When there, stop by the all-new Indian exhibit to check out the entire line of 2014 Indian Chief models including the Indian Chief Classic, the Indian Chief Vintage and the Indian Chieftain. Indian Motorcycle will feature a host of historically significant motorcycles including the ‘Spirit of Munro’ Streamliner, a one-of-a-kind custom vehicle built by Indian to pay homage to Burt Munro who famously rode into the history books on an Indian in 1962 at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
On Saturday, Indian Motorcycle will display a one-of-a-kind custom bike it has created to benefit U.S. Armed Forces personnel and their families. In support of Jack Daniel’s ‘Operation Ride Home’ program, the company pulled the ‘No. 7’ serial number Indian Chief Vintage out of the first 1901 numbered motorcycles from its assembly line and partnered with Klock Werks in Mitchell, South Dakota, to create a special motorcycle. After this weekend, the bike heads to the Scottsdale, Arizona, Barrett-Jackson auction in January in support of Operation Ride Home and U.S. military families. Show attendees who wish to contribute to Operation Ride Home may donate in a special Jack Daniel’s whiskey barrel inside the Indian Motorcycle display.
Throughout the day on Saturday, trumpet player Dr. Jesse McGuire will play rousing renditions of patriotic-inspired music in the Indian Motorcycle display. Dr. McGuire has performed for three U.S. presidents, and his amazing rendition of the National Anthem has been heard across the country at dozens of major professional sporting events.
Indian Motorcycle is proud to offer members of the U.S. Military a $1,000 incentive on the purchase of any of the three exciting new 2014 Indian Chief models. Stop by the Indian Motorcycle exhibit this weekend to learn more, or to take advantage of this special program in honor of the members of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Throughout the event, Indian Motorcycle will highlight the inspiring design and power of the new Thunder Stroke 111 engine, the heartbeat of the 2014 Indian Chiefs. The exhibit will feature a cut-away version of the new engine to demonstrate the engineering prowess behind the new power plant, and attendees will hear the roar of the new engine through the accessory Stage 1 exhaust available for all 2014 Indian Chiefs.
Attendees at the New York IMS show will be treated to a special new bike: A custom 2014 Chief Classic designed by the Indian Motorcycle Industrial Design team led by Greg Brew. Incorporating a number of accessories currently available for the Chiefs as well as a custom paint scheme and several unique features, this bike is sure to inspire the custom builder in everyone.
