This past weekend, Indian Motorcycle kicked off the 69th annual Bonneville Speed Week by paying tribute to its iconic heritage and the 50th anniversary of Burt Munro’s historic land speed record in grand fashion.
Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, elevated its 2018 motorcycle lineup from its entry-level Scout Sixty to its long-distance touring Roadmaster. Along with the newly introduced Indian® Scout® Bobber, headlining the 2018 model year is the ultra-premium Indian® Roadmaster® Elite and blacked-out, toughed-up Springfield Dark Horse.
In preparation for the Burt Munro 50th anniversary commemorative run, Indian Motorcycle has set three new land speed records, according to the Southern California Timing Association (SCTA). Burt Munro’s great nephew, Lee Munro, and a pair of Indian Motorcycle technicians entered the record books on July 16 at El Mirage Dry Lakebed.
Indian Motorcycle®, America’s First Motorcycle Company®, and “Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis,” announced today veterans Corporal Joshua Stein, U.S. Army (Ret.) and Corporal Neil Frustaglio, U.S. Marines (Ret.) have been named as the honorary “Hero’s Ride of a Lifetime” selectees.
