The American Motorcyclist Association has announced that Indian Motorcycle will be celebrated as the 2014 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days Marque of the Year, July 11-13, at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days will include special recognition, displays and race classes for historic Indian-brand motorcycles, as well as participation from the new Indian Motorcycle.
Attendees to the three-day festival of vintage motorcycling will experience a special Indian Motocycle-themed tent on the Mid-Ohio infield featuring beautiful examples of classic Indian machines, as well as the latest machines from the new Indian Motorcycle. In addition, a full demo fleet of Indian Motorcycles will be at the event, allowing attendees to get a feel for the Indian Motorcycle line-up.
"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.
"It is a real honor to our entire team for Indian Motorcycle to be selected Marque of the year for AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days," said Menneto. "We know that enthusiasts of all brands come to this event, and the chance to not only celebrate where the Indian Motorcycle came from but to display and ride where we are heading is going to make a for a fantastic weekend."
