Indian Motorcycle And Jack Daniel’s Unveil Limited Edition Scout Bobber Motorcycle

Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, and Jack Daniel’s, America’s first registered distillery, today introduced the Jack Daniel’s® Limited Edition Indian® Scout® Bobber. For the third straight year, the two iconic American brands have joined forces with Klock Werks Kustom Cycles of Mitchell, SD to celebrate their shared values with an ultra-premium, limited-edition motorcycle. This year, they looked to the Jack Daniel’s Fire Brigade and their impressive gold and black firetrucks for design inspiration.

Jack Daniel’s® is the only distillery in the world with its own fire brigade, which is staffed entirely by employee volunteers. The Jack Daniel’s Fire Brigade is an impressive showcase of the company’s commitment to quality and a remarkable symbol for the passion and dedication shared by Jack Daniel’s employees. The employees at Indian Motorcycle developed this bike as a tribute to the people who are committed to keeping their community’s safe, the state-certified firefighters of Jack Daniel’s, as well as firefighters and EMS professionals everywhere.

The Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Scout Bobber boasts several ultra-premium, custom features that create a truly unique motorcycle. As a nod to the “Old No. 7 Brand”, only 177 of these bikes will be built globally, making anyone who owns one a member of an extremely exclusive club.

“Our partnership with Jack Daniel’s celebrates American craftsmanship of the highest order,” said Steve Menneto, President – Indian Motorcycle. “This year’s limited-edition bike draws inspiration from the incredible story of Jack Daniel’s Fire Brigade, while honoring the passion and dedication of firefighters and emergency medical responders who serve our country.” Each of the 177 individually-numbered motorcycles are accented with Jack Daniel’s Fire Brigade themes.

    The bike looks great! Don’t care for the rear view mirrors position but other than that the bike looks sharp!

    Great colors but I don’t understand why one would want to be a rolling Jack Daniel’s commercial. Do I get a check every month for promoting a liquor brand on my bike?

    Nice lipstick. A paint job and a seat. Customized but not a Custom.

    Aren’t there already enough logos without festooning it with more?
    What’s next? Stormy Daniels edition?

    The mini fridge on the front is a clever idea for a beverage themed bike 🙂

    I sure would like to say something nice about this Jack Daniels motorcycle, but I cannot! Just not my cup of tea!

    Apparently Indian is trying to compete with NASCAR for logos. When do we get to see the Tide detergent custom Scout?

    Looks like a RADIATOR with some sort of motorcycle attachment

    Nice but put decent pipes on it

    Well played Indian.

    Looks great except for the wash board hung on the front down tubes
    still don’t understand why the Japanese can make the radiator almost
    disappear and HD and Indian still have to use that Model A rad.

    So, you pay extra to advertise a product. No doubt, there is an ass for every seat.

    Mbkuder correct. Indians whole line up has fugly pipes.

    I’m waiting for the Kellogg’s version a.k.a. Froot Loops

  16. 16 Mike Mar 8th, 2018 at 11:43 am

    I’ll buy one when they come out with the “Victory” version. Just put Victory logos wherever the Indian logos are currently. I’ll even let them put “Polaris” somewhere on the bike as well. Preferably on the bottom of the bike.

    I need educating on what bobber means!
    To me this is a USA company copying a past motorcycle style (1980’s Japanese muscle custom bike aka V-Max and similar) which was a bad attempt to copy USA custom and “Harleys” and take their buyers.
    So its a copy of a copy. I think? But not a BOBBER.

    I think I am right in thinking a BOBBER is the same as the British Café Racer.
    Take original bike.
    Remove ALL parts NOT required to make it move and BIN THEM.

    Let me know if I missed anything.

    Superbe dans cet habillage!!

    What this bike demonstrates is the Indian has no respect for their customers. Do they really think that putting the Jack Daniels name will sell a motorcycle will mak you buy it? Apparently they do and they think youre all idiots, along with those who think if you paint it all flat black. No wonder sales are down no creativity, no development nothing but a decal and flat black paint!

    Kelly: FYI This is the 3rd JD special edition Indian has released. The first one sold out in less than a day. The last one sold out in less than an hour. The first one built was auctioned and sold for $150,000.

    I Know Jack Daniels is more popular than Indian or Harley😉

    For those who need a history lesson, the term Bobber came about when soldiers returning from WWII started stripping down their motorcycles to go faster. Not only did guys remove parts, they also started “bobbing” fenders to reduce the weight. This term likely came from “bobbing” horse tails which was common practice when teams of horses were used to pull equipment. Note, these guys rode H-D and Indian primarily since this is what they rode in the military.

    This style evolved into the California Chopper scene in the 60’s when bikes were “bobbed” and “chopped” to create wild customs compared to what had come before. “Frisco Style” is what a lot of people recognize today as an old-school chopper. Frames were stretched and molded with custom bodywork and radical paint. From there you can trace many elements of custom style still seen today…

    The British Cafe Racer scene came up independently from the American Chopper culture and was driven by performance more than style. The original Ace Cafe was the epicenter of this movement.
