This is their fourth limited edition collaboration.

We knew it was coming, and now it's here. Indian unveiled its latest collaboration with Jack Daniel's and Klock Werks Custom Cycles on Saturday night, a limited edition Springfield Dark Horse.

This year's custom ride, a 2020 model due to come out late this year, features custom styling to invoke the Jack Daniel's connection. False but tasteful woodgrain appears on the tank and saddlebags, mimicking the barrels that the whiskey ages inside. (A special bottle display using the same wood as these barrels is also included.) The custom Heavy Metal Crystal and Thunder Black Vivid Crystal two-tone paint is unique to this model. So is the liberal scattering of Jack Daniel's Single Barrel logos all over the bike, meant to evoke the exclusivity of Jack Daniels' single barrel whiskey, of which only a single unique barrel is made.

It's not all show, either. This special bike will feature Indian's new 116-cubic-inch engine, promising 127 foot-pounds of torque. It also includes special wheels, mini-ape handlebars, LED lighting, and a quick-release tinted windshield.

As with previous Jack Daniel's branded Indians, this will be a limited edition, with only 177 to be made. Since last year's Scout Bobber sold out in ten minutes, Indian has entered the 21st century with an online application to become one of the lucky owners of this year's bikes. Anyone may apply from now through 11:59 pm on March 17 for a chance to buy this bike. Winners will be chosen at random, so you don't have to rush to be the first in line.

Bike number 001, however, will be withheld from sale, and instead auctioned off, as previous bikes have. All proceeds from the auction will benefit Operation Ride Home, a charity that provides financial assistance to eligible active duty junior-enlisted military members to travel from their duty station back home to spend time with their families.
