Indian Motorcycle accessories will also be on display and apparel will be available for purchase. The Indian Motorcycle show truck is located on the corner of 4th and Lazelle Street in downtown Sturgis. Indian Motorcycle was founded in 1901 in Springfield, MA , and one of the company’s original dealers, Pappy Hoel, is credited as the founder of the Black Hills Rally. To further celebrate this 110th anniversary milestone, Indian Motorcycle is inviting all 1901- 2010 Indian owners to park their motorcycles, VIP-style, beside the Indian Motorcycle event truck. There will also be a special display of vintage Indian Motorcycles during the rally at the 4th & Lazelle location. Indian’s goal this year is to provide a complete look at the past, present and future direction of the company.
All 2011 Indian Motorcycles feature the American built 105 cubic inch PowerPlus V-Twin power train with electronic closed loop sequential port fuel injection, a six-speed Baker transmission, Brembo 4-piston calipers with 11.5” dual rotors up front and a standard 5.5-gallon fuel tank, all-leather seats, etc.
