1DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.

Additionally, S&S Cycle will offer a generous race and championship contingency bonus package of over $80,000 to qualifying racers who use S&S Cycle custom exhausts on their Indian Scout FTR750s, Harley-Davidson XG750Rs, or Kawasaki Ninja 650s.

 

“Racing is the very heart and soul of the many accomplishments and innovative products S&S Cycle has delivered over the past 60 years,” said David Zemla, VP of Marketing for S&S Cycle, Inc. “This passion for performance drives innovation from our designers and engineers, ensuring we deliver on our promise of Proven Performance.”

INDIAN MOTORCYCLE INTRODUCES 2018 LIMITED-EDITION CHIEFTAIN ELITE WITH ONE-OF-A-KIND BLACK HILLS SILVER PAINT

Ultra-Premium Bagger Pairs Stunning Paint Completed Entirely by Hand
with Top-of-the-Line Amenities
 
Minneapolis (March 1, 2018) – Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company founded in 1901, today announced its new ultra-premium bagger, the 2018 Chieftain Elite.

Indian Motorcycle meticulously thought through the design to ensure every line, texture and material complemented the contours of this aggressive platform. The focal point of this bagger is the stunning, specialty paint featuring high-flake Black Hills Silver. As the name suggests, this paint was inspired by the silver mines in the Black Hills of South Dakota, which is near Indian Motorcycle’s custom paint facility in Spearfish, SD. A team of Indian Motorcycle experts mask the bodywork, lay the graphics, and hand-spray each Chieftain Elite. Each bike takes nearly 25 hours due to the time-intensive, painstaking processes that are completed by hand. Incredibly, no two bikes will look the same due to the level of human touch involved. There’s no question that this bold, one-of-a-kind bike will stand out in any crowd.6-2018-indian-chieftain-elite
 
“Whether cruising around the city or touring the country backroads, the 2018 Chieftain Elite delivers on its promise of being the best bagger that money can buy,” said Reid Wilson, Senior Director – Marketing and Product Planning for Indian Motorcycle.  “This bike was born to turn heads and provide an unmatched riding experience with all of the premium amenities included.”BBJX4lN.img
 
The 2018 Chieftain Elite has a commanding stance that’s punctuated by its 19-inch, 10-spoke, contrast-cut front wheel and marbled graphics package. It’s equipped with premium features, including a 200-Watt premium audio system, Pathfinder LED headlight and driving lights, a push-button power flare windshield, billet aluminum Select Driver and Passenger Floorboards, and genuine leather seats. New for this year’s Chieftain Elite are pinnacle mirrors and updated, smaller hand controls for improved ergonomics. 2018-indian-chieftain-elite-riding

The Chieftain Elite also features ABS, cruise control, tire pressure monitoring, remote-locking saddlebags and keyless ignition.featured
 
At the soul of this bike is the Thunderstroke 111 engine, an award-winning American V-Twin that delivers a monstrous 119 ft-lbs of torque and power to spare in every gear.
 
A large number of accessories are also available for riders looking to add power or further customize the Chieftain Elite.

Leah Visits the Evel Knievel Museum

1On her way toward Oklahoma to visit friends and leave her beloved Scout for the winter, Leah Misch stopped in to see the new Evel Knievel Museum in Topeka Kansas. Housed in a new facility adjacent to historic Harley-Davidson, the museum opened this past June and garnered visitors from all 50 states and a dozen foreign countries in just three months.

 

Visitors see Evel’s motorcycles, leathers and helmets along with dozens of personal effects including his casts and gold checkbook. Plus:

  • Fully-restored Mack Truck Rig “Big Red” – cab, dressing room and trailer
  • Snake River Experience Room featuring the actual X-2 Sky Cycle
  • “Plan A Jump” interactive wall
  • Broken Bones interactive touch screens including Evel’s actual X-rays
  • Virtual Reality Jump Experience
  • “Big Red” Gallery with restoration film, crew recollections
  • 1970’s-era movie theatre with marquee, seating and décor
  • Film and crash videos of many famous jumps
  • The kid’s room, the garage, the family room
  • Children’s letters to Evel from decades ago
  • Many never-before-seen personal items and images7

It’s the one and only exhibition showcasing the world’s largest collection of authentic artifacts that belonged to the most legendary, death-defying daredevil of all time! The Museum’s extensive and complete displays reflect the impact of a man who did the unthinkable and, some said, the impossible. They were tumultuous times in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. America needed a hero – and Evel Knievel gave us one!

Enjoy Leah’s pictures and visit the Museum yourself.654 3 2
