Indian Motorcycle Offers Riders the Chance to 'Switch Your Gear' and Swap That Other Motorcycle T-Shirt for a Cool One

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - Feb 16, 2015) - Indian Motorcycle® (NYSE: PII), America's first motorcycle company, today announced its new "Switch Your Gear" t-shirt trade-in offer. From February 15 - March 31, forward-thinking riders are highly encouraged to visit their nearest Indian Motorcycle dealer and donate a new or gently used t-shirt from a competing motorcycle brand. In exchange, the t-shirt donor will receive a brand new t-shirt from Indian Motorcycle, American's first motorcycle company. Indian Motorcycle dealers will donate unwanted shirts to a local charity of their choice. This program is available free of charge to riders across the U.S. and Canada as Indian Motorcycle's way of welcoming riders to the Indian Motorcycle family, and helping them gear up for spring with fresh, new apparel.

"As American v-twin riders increasingly come to understand and appreciate the performance, style and unmatched quality of our exceptional new Indian Motorcycle models, our dealers are experiencing a remarkable influx of riders eager to convert from older, established motorcycle brands and join the Indian Motorcycle family," said Scott Meek, marketing director for Indian Motorcycle. "With the new riding season at our doorstep, we're happy to take riders' unwanted motorcycle shirts off their hands and outfit them with cool new Indian shirts for spring."

In addition, Indian Motorcycle dealers are hosting the "Ride the American Original" event through February 28.
