Indian release a Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Scout Bobber
Indian Motorcycles have teamed up with legendary whisky brand Jack Daniel’s to create a limited edition run of Scout Bobbers.
Somewhat strangely, the bikes aren’t inspired by the company’s famous black and white logo, but instead their gold and black paint is a nod towards the fire trucks used by the Jack Daniel’s Fire Brigade.

Yep, the distillery actually has its own fire brigade – which is probably a good thing if you are making over 11 million cases of flammable booze a year!
Only 177 of the limited-edition bikes will be built, a nod to the ‘Old No. 7 Brand,’ and they have been designed by Klock Werks Kustom Cycles. The bikes come with two-tone matte black paint and 24-karat gold graphics on the mudguards (or fenders if you are American) and tank with a ‘bottles and throttles don’t mix’ emblem on the front mudguard (fender…). In addition, the bikes gain a leather seat with JD embroidery and custom grips, pegs and shift levers. Finally, there is a gold-coloured Indian badge and an individually-numbered 24-karat gold Montana Silversmith badge. And if you fancy owning one you had better be fast…
Only three of the JD bikes will be arriving in the UK with each one costing £14,449 from Indian UK, which isn’t bad considering they are so exclusive and a stock Scout Bobber costs from £11,299. Delivery is expected to begin in July 2018.
