The 2019 Jack Daniels Limited Edition Springfield Dark Horse is a combination of firsts. Indian Motorcycle is America’s first motorcycle company, and Jack Daniels is America’s first registered distillery. Both have a rich heritage of quality, originality, and craftsmanship. Working in conjunction with Klock Werks Kustom Cycles, the pair of iconic companies has created a motorcycle that pays tribute to the people behind the brands. The 2019 version continues the four-year tradition of the companies coming together on special projects.
The Dark Horse pulls inspiration from Jack Daniel’s single barrel limited runs of whiskey and celebrates the craftsman who put together those barrels. The bike will maintain the look and feel of the Indian Dark Horse—meaning it will stay lean and stripped down with only a number of ultra-premium design features to make it a one-of-a-kind bike. The approach is similar to the simplicity that Jack Daniels uses to create their whiskeys.
Previous bikes made by the collaboration have sold out in a matter of minutes, giving little chance to the common folk—like those that this bike celebrates—to pick up one for themselves. This time around, a new digital promotion will be used to select who will be able to buy the limited edition bikes.
As with previous models, only 177 bikes will be made to commemorate Jack Daniels’ old number 7 line.
