Indian Motorcycles will be celebrated as Marque of the Year at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days July 11-13
AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days featuring Indian Motorcycle as Marque of the Year will include special recognition, displays and race classes for historic Indian-brand motorcycles (including Indian "Motocycles" from the early days), as well as participation from the new Indian Motorcycle.
"Few of motorcycling's great brands have as much history as Indian Motocycle, which began in 1901 and helped define the pre-WWII motorcycling era with iconic models like the Indian Scout and Chief," said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman. "With the modern revival of the Indian Motorcycle name being backed by Polaris Industries, we're excited to celebrate the brand's iconic motorcycling history, as well as its future."
Indian Motorcycle Vice President Steve Menneto says the company is looking forward to showcase its new models to some of motorcycling's most die-hard enthusiasts.
