INDIAN MOTORCYCLES THUNDER STROKE 111 ENGINE REVEALED AT ULYSSES AGM ON FRASER COAST

INDIAN MOTORCYCLE REVEALS THE THUNDER STROKE 111 ENGINE IN AUSTRALIA FOR THE FIRST TIME

Indian Motorcycle Australia pulled the covers the all-new Thunder Stroke 111 engine at the Ulysses AGM on the Fraser Coast at 3.30pm AEST to an eager crowd of over 1,000 Ulysses members.

Due for release later this year, the much anticipated reveal of the all-new Thunder Stroke 111 powering the new Indian Motorcycle drew significant interest from Australia’s largest Motorcycle Club, with members inspecting every little detail of the all-new engine up close and in person.

The engine reveal also coincided with the launch of the exclusive “One-Eleven Original” riders club. The One-Eleven Original riders refer to the first 111 Indian Motorcycles’ to be sold and delivered in Australia. Indian Motorcycle Australia has commenced accepting orders and deposits for the new Indian Motorcycle and in return prospective owners receive an exclusive One-Eleven Original kit containing:

  • One-Eleven Original Embroidered pit shirt
  • Indian glass Warbonnet paper weight
  • Indian belt & buckle
  • Numbered bike
  • Exclusive video content straight from the US design & engineering team
  • Numbered print of the original Indian design sketches, signed by US design & engineering team
  • Spirit of Munro - BELL helmet with One-Eleven Original livery

Peter Harvey, Country Manager for Indian Motorcycle Australia said “we expected the new engine to generate a lot of interest and unveiling it at Ulysses for the first time outside the USA and second time worldwide is a coup for Australia and Ulysses. Many Ulysses members have taken advantage of being amongst the first to see the heart of the new Indian Motorcycle and place deposits. With only 111 bikes to receive the exclusive One-Eleven Original kit and numbering, Indian Motorcycle enthusiasts and prospective customers will need to move quickly as the response and interest is very strong.”
