Star Tron Winter Prep 2019

Star Tron Winter Prep 2019 (PS)

Prepare Bikes/Quads for Off Season Storage  

Make Sure It Starts in the Spring

Press Release: Now that temperatures are dropping, it’s time to prepare motorcycles, ATVs, side-by-sides and other gas-powered equipment for off season storage. However, you need to do more than “just stabilize” fuel.  

All fuel needs to be stabilized to help prevent it from degrading during storage. Stabilizing is especially important for ethanol-blended fuel because ethanol and gasoline cannot form a chemical bond; as fuel ages, evaporation and oxidation leads to gums and other debris that clogs carburetors and fuel injectors, making engines run rough or suddenly become difficult to start. The engines are fine – it is the fuel that is the problem. 

Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment is engineered to protect fuel during winter storage. The enzymes maintain fuel quality for up to 2 years to ensure easy, smoke-free starts. Star Tron’s enzymes also allow for a more complete burn of the fuel charge for easy starts, maximum power and improved fuel economy. A more complete burn of the fuel charge also helps prevent carbon deposits, keeping engines running clean with significantly reduced emissions. Star Tron helps treat water issues caused by condensation by breaking apart clumps of water molecules into tiny submicron-sized droplets that can be safely eliminated while the engine is running. When it’s time to ride, engines running Star Tron-treated fuel start easy and run smooth. 

Used year-round, Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment keeps all engines starting easily and running smoothly. For more information, visit www.startron.com or call (800) 327-8583.

Indian Motorcycle’s Scout FTR750 Sweeps Podium At Williams Grove Half-Mile

Indian Motorcycle Privateers Briar & Bronson Bauman Place 1-2, Wrecking Crew Rider & 2018 AFT Champion Jared Mees Takes 3rd

MECHANICSBURG, Penn—Indian Motorcycle Racing continued its American Flat Track dominance as Indian privateer Briar Bauman, aboard his Scout FTR750, secured his first win of the 2018 season. Piloting a factory Indian Motorcycle, at Brad Baker’s request, Bronson Bauman placed second and secured the first Twins podium of his career. Indian Wrecking Crew rider and 2018 Grand National Champion Jared Mees rounded out the podium with a third-place finish.

In a main event that featured bar-to-bar action and multiple lead changes, it was Indian privateer Briar Bauman who spent most of the race locked in a battle with Mees, before ultimately pulling away. Briar’s brother, Bronson, also managed to push his way up to the back tire of Mees and ultimately made a pass with few laps remaining. It was his first career AFT Twins podium.

“The Bauman brothers ran a great race and put on a really good show. Both Briar and Bronson pushed hard to get their 1-2 finish,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Racing, Technology & Service for Indian Motorcycle.  “It was exciting watching Briar battle Jared to get his first win of 2018.  Plus, Bronson riding Brad’s FTR750 and getting his first ever twins podium made for a really amazing day at Mechanicsburg.”

With two races to go, Mees has already wrapped up his fifth career Grand National Title, securing the victory at last weekend’s Springfield Mile II. The title win was his second consecutive aboard the Indian Scout FTR750. Indian Motorcycle privateer Henry Wiles currently ranks second with 239 points, while Brian Bauman ranks third with 196 points. Jeffrey Carver Jr. and Kenny Coolbeth Jr are fourth and fifth with 180 and 163 points, respectively.

The season continues on September 29 in Indian Motorcycle’s backyard at the Minnesota Mile at Canterbury Park.

Indian Motorcycle Unleashes Redesigned & Updated Chieftain

By | New Product News

Indian Motorcycle Unleashes Redesigned & Updated Chieftain

Restyled Fairing & Saddlebags, Combined with New Features, Offer Riders a More Streamlined, Aggressive Style

New PowerBand Audio Upgrade Package is Loudest Audio System in Indian Motorcycle History

Press Release: Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company founded in 1901, today announced a redesigned Chieftain lineup. Since its debut in 2013, the Chieftain has consistently won high marks for handling, power and comfort. Now, for 2019, the Indian Chieftain, Chieftain Dark Horse and Chieftain Limited feature more streamlined, aggressive styling that reflects the bike’s well-established performance capabilities. For those loyal to Indian’s classic designs, the 2019 Indian Chieftain Classic will continue to feature its traditional fairing and iconic valanced front fender.

The redesigned Chieftain lineup continues an evolution that started in 2017 with the introduction of the 10-spoke, 19-inch contrast-cut front wheel and open fender on the Chieftain Limited and Chieftain Elite. The response from customers was overwhelmingly positive, paving the way for this lineup expansion.

“As we continue to evolve the Indian Motorcycle brand, we want to expand our lineup with more aggressive style options, while still maintaining the availability of our more classic style options,” said Reid Wilson, Senior Director for Indian Motorcycle. “What’s most important to us is developing motorcycles that meet a wide variety of customer style preferences, and Chieftain’s new look does just that.”

At first glance of the new Chieftain, riders will notice a restyled fairing and saddlebags with sharper lines and harder edges that give the bike a commanding presence and more streamlined look. A trimmed and slimmed fairing, paired with full LED lighting and new fork guards, delivers a streamlined front-end package that’s indicative of the bike’s impressive performance capabilities. The Chieftain’s new, slammed saddlebags with color-matched fender closeouts also provide a sleek and custom-inspired look. While the new Rogue gunfighter seat gives the bike a sleek, low-slung stance, Chieftain maintains its superior handling and comfort with more than four inches of rear suspension travel. New badging on the tank and saddlebags and the iconic Indian headdress on the front fender complete the package.

In addition to the styling and design enhancements, the 2019 Chieftain lineup features new ride-enhancing technology for increased performance customization and rider comfort. For a more customized ride experience, riders can now choose between three Ride Modes  – Tour, Standard or Sport. The throttle map for each Ride Mode was designed with a specific application in mind, resulting in one bike with three distinct personalities. All 2019 Chieftains are also equipped with Rear Cylinder Deactivation for increased rider comfort when the bike is stationary.

Also new for 2019, the Chieftain Dark Horse lineup expands with new paint options, including White Smoke, Bronze Smoke and Thunder Black Smoke. More than just matte-finish body paint, the 2019 Chieftain Dark Horse now features premium black ceramic exhaust and gloss black finishes on the primary cover, valve covers, push-rod tubes, cam cover, and saddlebag hinges for a custom, blacked-out look.

Chieftain

Enhanced Audio

Several enhancements have also been made to Indian Motorcycle’s stock audio system to significantly improve sound quality. First, the tweeters have been separated from the mid-range speakers to optimize sound output and clarity. Second, a dynamic equalizer that’s fully customizable now adjusts specific frequencies at different vehicle speeds to provide peak system performance at all times. As speed increases, the equalizer automatically adjusts each frequency to the optimal level to compensate for road, wind and engine noise. The result is crystal-clear, 100-watts of premium audio at all speeds.

In summary, the 2019 Chieftain lineup packs a host of new features, including:

·       A restyled fairing and saddlebags that reflect Chieftain’s performance capabilities

·       A new Rogue gunfighter seat that enhances the bike’s sleek profile

·       New front and rear turn signals and full LED lighting

·       New ride-enhancing technology that provides a customizable ride experience with three Ride Modes and Rear Cylinder Deactivation for improved rider comfort

·       Enhanced stock, 100-watt premium audio system for crystal-clear sound at all speeds

Also new for 2019, Indian Motorcycle introduces its loudest audio system to date. With PowerBand Audio, riders can choose from audio configurations that are up to 50 percent louder than stock audio. The system is engineered with an integrated amp on speaker and does not require additional amps. The premium audio package is fully integrated with Indian Motorcyle Ride Command so that when PowerBand Audio speakers are installed, Ride Command automatically recognizes the upgrade and takes the equalizer from five bands to nine bands with additional pre-set options and volume control. Riders can choose from three kits – PowerBand Audio (fairing upgrade), PowerBand Audio Plus (fairing and saddlebag upgrade) and PowerBand Audio Plus with accessory trunk (fairing, saddlebag and accessory trunk upgrade).

Riders can further customize their Chieftain with a variety of accessories, including performance packages from Stage 1, 2 and 3 featuring exhaust, air intakes, cams and the 116 ci big bore kit. Custom fit options like extended and reduced reach seats, mid-rise handlebars and reduced reach handlebars are also available. Color-matched accessories such as Hard Lower Fairings, Saddlebag Audio Lids, a Quick Release Trunk, and for the Chieftain Classic owners, a 10-spoke 19-inch contrast-cut wheel with an open fender can be added to give your bike a custom look.

Pricing for the 2019 Chieftain begins at $21,999 in the U.S. and $26,999 in Canada, while the Chieftain Dark Horse starts at $25,999 in the U.S. and $32,499 in Canada. Indian’s Chieftain Limited is available starting at $25,999 in the U.S. and $32,499 in Canada. Pricing for the Chieftain Classic begins at $24,999 in the U.S. and $31,499 in Canada.

Arriving at dealerships now, riders can learn more or test ride by visiting a local Indian Motorcycle dealership. For more information on the 2019 Chieftain lineup, or to find the nearest dealer, visit IndianMotorcycle.com and follow along on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Returning Crowd Favorites include NTC Drift Trike Races, Ride-In Bike Show, 

Classic Motorcycle Rodeo Games and Events, and On-Site Campout. 

Easyriders Events proudly announces the 30th anniversary of its annual Motorcycle Rodeo at the Ross County Fairgrounds from August 30th thru September 3rd, where more than 10,000 motorcycle enthusiasts will converge for five days of on-site camping, dirt track motorcycle rodeo competitions on two-wheeled steel ponies, live concerts; from old school country to hard-hitting rock. Plus, you’ll find the very best motorcycle-lifestyle related vendors in the country, a ride-in bike show and much more. 

Chillicothe

David Allen Coe

When the sun goes down, the party gets started at the stage. We’ll be rockin’ all weekend starting Friday night with Wheeler Walker Jr. who will be setting the tone for a wild weekend with his undeniably offensive but inarguably hilarious country melodies, followed by Saturday night’s headliner, Fuel, who are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their hit album Sunburn, and finally wrapping up on Sunday with the legendary outlaw country artist David Allan Coe. Supporting acts include Cowboy, Jasmine Cain, Miss InTENt and MORE. A weekend wristband grants the holder access to all event areas, while a day pass will allow one- day access to the venue, limited to the event’s midway (excludes campsite). All are able to view concerts and attractions at no additional charge. 

ChillicotheBeyond the stage, Rodeo attendees will be able to camp on-site for the duration of the event, with early bird camping beginning on Wednesday, August 29th at 2pm. Easyriders Events offers all amenities on-site for guests including shower and bathroom facilities, allowing enthusiasts to maximize their time on-site throughout the weekend. “Easyriders Rodeos are strictly 18 and over events that offer unparalleled opportunity for participants to transcend their normal everyday lives and really let their hair down. For many, these events are an annual getaway from work, the kids and the stresses of everyday life,” says Kari Roben, Event Manager. 

Chillicothe
For those who want to get in on the Rodeo action, the dirt track offers something for everyone. Attendees can participate in the fan favorite NTC Drift Trike Races, sliding their way across the dirt in a race to the finish line or the ever-popular Barstool Races, in which they race –you guessed it– a motorized barstool against friends and strangers through a winding track bordered by hay bales. The action-packed races are just as exciting to participate in as they are to watch from the grandstands – as they always deliver unbeatable entertainment. There are a variety of additional events that are open to the public, and the sign- up cost of your first rodeo event is included in the price of a weekend wristband. Details are available on- site and all are encouraged to participate and truly become a part of the rodeo experience. 

There will be a multitude of unique motorcycle-related vendors setting up shop on the show’s midway; including motorcycle professionals, builders, parts & accessories manufacturers, riding gear, leathersmiths and jewelry designers. The city of Chillicothe, the first capital of the state of Ohio, is centrally located between two major metropolitan areas – Columbus and Cincinnati – attracting many for its beautiful riding country and secluded atmosphere, making the Easyriders Rodeo a favorite adults-only summer destination since 1987.

2019 Chief, Springfield & Roadmaster Models

By | New Product News

2019Indian Motorcycle Announces 2019 Chief, Springfield & Roadmaster Models With New Technology That Enhances Riding Experience

New Ride-Enhancing Technology Improves Performance, Comfort, & Audio Quality;
Dark Horse Style Updates and Expanded Color Options Round Out Upgrades for 2019

Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company founded in 1901, today announced its 2019 Chief, Springfield and Roadmaster models with new technology designed to enhance and customize the riding experience.  Dark Horse models also get darker with premium gloss black finishes and expanded color options on Springfield Dark Horse.

Developed in direct response to rider feedback, the new technology features focus on improving performance, comfort, and providing more customization. The new features include:

Selectable Ride Modes
Riders can now choose between three Ride Modes on the fly – Tour, Standard or Sport – for a ride experience that’s customized to their riding style. The throttle map for each Ride Mode was designed with a specific application in mind, resulting in one motorcycle with three distinct personalities. “Tour” mode features a smooth throttle response for relaxed cruising. “Standard” mode features a crisp throttle response and well-balanced power delivery for responsive passing power and predictable, slow-speed handling. And finally, “Sport” mode features an instant throttle response and aggressive power delivery for head-snapping acceleration.

2019Rear Cylinder Deactivation
To increase rider comfort, all Thunder Stroke 111 models are now equipped with Rear Cylinder Deactivation. When the engine reaches operating temperature and the ambient temperature exceeds 59⁰ F, the rear cylinder will automatically deactivate when the bike is at a standstill, resulting in less engine heat for improved comfort in slow-moving or stopped traffic. The rear cylinder instantly reactivates when throttle is applied for a seamless transition to full power.

Improved Airflow on Roadmaster Lower Fairings
The lower fairings on the 2019 Roadmaster have been redesigned and optimized to provide significantly more airflow to the rider. This greatly improves comfort while cruising down the road. The redesigned airflow vent can be adjusted from all the way open for maximum airflow to fully closed for total weather protection. The new lowers can be retrofit to bikes from past model years with the addition of new highway bars.

Enhanced Audio System
Several enhancements have been made to Indian Motorcycle’s stock audio system to significantly improve sound quality. First, the tweeters have been separated from the mid-range speakers to optimize sound output and clarity. Second, a dynamic equalizer that’s fully customizable now adjusts specific frequencies at different vehicle speeds to provide peak system performance at all times. As speed increases, the equalizer automatically adjusts each frequency to the optimal level to compensate for road, wind and engine noise. The result is crystal clear, 100-watt premium audio at all speeds.

“These enhancements for 2019 showcase our commitment to listening to riders and continuously improving their experience with our products,” said Steve Menneto, President, Indian Motorcycle.  “We are laser-focused on delivering a best-in-class riding experience, and these new technologies represent a focus on quality that will continue long into the future of Indian Motorcycle.”

Also for 2019, Chief Dark Horse and Springfield Dark Horse receive several style updates that further accentuate their mean, custom styling. These models now boast premium gloss black finishes on the engine including the primary, valve, and cam covers, push-rod tubes, as well as on the exhaust and saddlebag hinges.

Springfield Dark Horse is now offered in two colors –Thunder Black Smoke and a new White Smoke option. Also, notable for the 2019 Springfield Dark Horse is the addition of the iconic Indian headdress on the front fender and a 19” contrast-cut wheel. The front highway bars and windshield were also removed to punctuate its sleek, streamlined stance.

Indian Motorcycle offers a wide range of authentic accessories for riders to customize their bike’s performance, style, comfort and storage. Exciting additions to the accessory line will be announced shortly.

Pricing for the 2019 Chief Dark Horse begins at $17,999 in the U.S. and $21,499 in Canada. The Chief Vintage is available starting at $19,999 in the U.S. and $23,999 in Canada. Pricing for Springfield begins at $20,999 in the U.S. and $25,299 in Canada, while the Springfield Dark Horse begins at $21,499 in the U.S. and $25,999 in Canada.
