Stunning race-themed motorcycle to be unveiled and celebrated.
ST. PAUL, MINN., MARCH 9 —The Sturgis Buffalo Chip® and Kuryakyn® are back at it again with a second powerful dose of “Rock, Rumble & Rebellion” to gear up for the annual August rally in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
“The Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling®” is now also the epicenter of all-things motorcycle racing, making the Sturgis Buffalo Chip the place to be for thrill-seeking adrenaline junkies. This year’s Buffalo Chip Moto StampedeTM showcases RSD Super Hooligan, American Flat Track Buffalo Chip TT, AMA Supermoto and the Street Drag Invitational with Crazy John, all of which will share center stage with some of the world’s top bands. To represent the festival’s hottest top-line events, Kuryakyn designed and built a one-off custom race-inspired machine to capture all the full-throttle action going down at the legendary campground.
The Grand Unveil
Together with the Buffalo Chip, Kuryakyn will pull the cover off the brand-new 2017 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® during the 30th annual Donnie Smith Bike & Car Show. Media members and attendees are invited to witness the unveiling, which will take place on the show’s main floor stage at the St. Paul RiverCentre on Saturday, March 25 at 11 a.m.
“Kuryakyn has presented another absolute winner,” said Rod Woodruff, Sturgis Buffalo Chip President. “The race theme and the flat-out powerful look of the new Mesh and Riot collections capture the excitement of all of the action taking place at the Chip this summer. The person who gets to own this beauty after its tour of the motorcycle event circuit this summer is going to be one lucky biker.”
Following the unveil, Kuryakyn will showcase this year’s signature bike at various rides and events leading up to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s 36th year of music, motorcycles and revelry Aug. 4-12.
“Once again we’re honored to represent the Sturgis Buffalo Chip through this signature bike build,” said Holger Mohr, Kuryakyn President. “Both brands personify the Rock, Rumble & Rebellion attitude. With street drag racing being one of the focuses for Rod and the Buffalo Chip team, we executed a design that balances the quintessential rawness of performance with the refinement of quality off-the-shelf Kuryakyn products. It presents the perfect medium to showcase our Crusher Performance Division, the new Mesh and Riot product collections, and also introduce the evolution of one of Kuryakyn’s most iconic products, the Hypercharger. The fact that we get to debut this bike in the Twin Cities, just a short ride from our headquarters in Somerset, makes it even more special for our team.”
