See New Indian Engine at Bike Week Party
Monday, February 18, 2013
has been hitting the promotional trail hard in advance of the release of the first Polaris-produced Indian Motorcycle
, slated for later this year. Indian has an entertaining display that’s been touring the country with the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows, a blend of glass cases filled with remnants from the company’s storied past next to clues about the company’s future.
See and hear the new Indian Motorcycle V-Twin, the first produced by its parent company Polaris Industries, at a Daytona Beach Bike Week party on Main Street at Dirty Harry's, Saturday March 9 at 9 p.m.
One of the traveling display’s most popular features has been a sound booth where you get to hear and feel the new Indian V-Twin developed by Polaris. We got an opportunity to stand in it and hear the deep drumming of the new Indian engine at the Long Beach IMS and it sounds plenty powerful. We can’t wait to see the finished product mounted in the frame rails of a new Indian Motorcycle.
But up to this point, unless you attended one of the IMS, you’ve missed out on a chance to hear this first example of Indian’s future. Fret not, Indian is planning on taking it a step further with a public debut party for the new engine during Bike Week 2013.
"Daytona Beach will be the first place that the public can see and hear the actual engine that has been in constant development from a blank sheet of paper for the past two years," says Indian Motorcycle PR.
The event will take place Saturday, March 9, at 9 p.m. (EST) at Dirty Harry’s Bar on Main Street Daytona Beach. Hang out with the Indian peeps, see and hear the new Indian engine for the very first time, and have fun at one of the wildest bars on Main Street.
“It’s an exciting time in the history of the brand, and this reveal will show the dedication to the Indian brand, respect its past and celebrate its great future under Polaris Industries stewardship,” wrote Indian in its official announcement.
As part of its Bike Week efforts, Indian Motorcycle
will have company spokesperson Mike Wolfe from American Pickers
in town to help promote various events, so be sure to check out their website if you can’t make it to Daytona Beach. Check back from March 9 -16 for daily reports and photos from the rally courtesy of Motorcycle USA, too.
