Indian Motorcycle, America's first motorcycle manufacturer, and Jack Daniel's®, America's first registered distillery, have teamed up with Klock Werks® Kustom Cycles to create a tribute to American craftsmanship: The 2022 Jack Daniel's® Limited Edition Indian Challenger Dark Horse. It is already the sixth model of the partnership in the limited series and inspired by Jack Daniel's® famous Tennessee Rye Whiskey.
The Jack Daniel's® Limited Edition Indian Challenger Dark Horse, of which only 107 copies are available worldwide, is a proud and unique statement. The special paint finish in Rye Metallic with golden and green accents is a reference to the elaborate production process of Jack Daniel's® Tennessee Rye Whiskey. The first-class state-of-the-art equipment offers incomparable performance and maximum comfort.
"We are proud to continue this unique partnership with Jack Daniel's® and Klock Werks® – two respected brands with whom we share the age-old American ethos of uncompromising quality and craftsmanship," said Aaron Jax, Vice President of Indian Motorcycle. "The Jack Daniel's® Limited Edition Indian Challenger Dark Horse further enhances our award-winning excavator and represents the highest level of premium technology and craftsmanship – just as Jack Daniel's® did with its Tennessee Rye Whiskey."
Key features of the 2022 Jack Daniel's® Limited Edition Indian Challenger Dark Horse include:
Attention to detail and innovative spirit – what made Jack Daniel's® Tennessee Rye Whiskey a unique success can also be found in the design of the limited edition motorcycle. In addition to the special paint finish, the motorcycle has a numbered Jack Daniel's® Montana Silversmiths® badge, specially engraved running boards for rider and passenger and a genuine leather seat sewn by Jack Daniel's®.
Pathfinder Adaptive LED Headlight and Pathfinder S LED Spotlight
Indian Motorcycle's adaptive headlight detects the angle of inclination of the motorcycle and activates individual LED headlights to ensure unprecedented visibility. With 15 individual LED lenses that adapt in real time to the angle of the motorcycle, patent-pending technology and the industry's first adaptive high beam function, the Pathfinder Adaptive LED headlight offers unparalleled illumination of the road - whether you are riding upright or in an inclined position.
Rear shock absorbers with electronically adjustable preload
The Jack Daniel's® Limited Edition Indian Challenger Dark Horse features electronically adjustable rear suspension that allows the driver to adjust the preload from the comfort of the infotainment system. For example, if you drive with a passenger, you simply enter the approximate weight of the person and the system automatically adjusts the preload for optimal handling and handling.

PowerPlus Liquid Cooled V-Twin
Equipped with the liquid-cooled PowerPlus engine with 1768 cubic centimeters of displacement, the Jack Daniel's® Limited Edition Indian Challenger Dark Horse delivers class-leading 122 hp and 178 Nm of torque.
"Just as the Indian Challenger sets a new standard for American excavators, so does our Tennessee Rye for American whiskey with its unique distillation process and powerful finish," said Greg Luehrs, director of sponsorship and partnerships at Jack Daniel's ®. "The 2022 Challenger perfectly embodies what our Rye is all about – innovation and an uncompromising pursuit of producing American products of the highest quality."
