Passion runs deep in everything we do at Indian Motorcycle. Passion is what fueled Burt Munro’s dogged pursuit of a world land speed record. The determined New Zealander would not be denied, despite no funding or help from anyone but his own two hands. In 1967, and he and his heavily modified Indian Scout finally set a world record of 183.586 mph on the Bonneville Salt Flats. The record still stands, and, in fact, the speed was corrected to 184.087 mph by the AMA in 2014This fall, a group of our engineers set out to do one thing, go fast. Fast forward almost 50 years and that same passion still flows in the veins of our engineers at Indian Motorcycle. Working late nights and weekends they prepped an Indian Scout and Indian Dark Horse to run at the land speed races in El Mirage, California in the fall of 2015 in search of their own land speed records. This is their story.
