Indian Motorcycle Joins In Promoting Motorcycle Safety Month

Company joins the greater motorcycle industry in raising awareness

Indian Motorcycle has just released an announcement to remind riders that May is Motorcycle Safety Month (hey, better late than never), and to join the greater motorcycle industry in raising awareness of motorcycle safety with both riders and non-riders. Indian encourages all riders to seek out regular professional skills development and safety training no matter how many miles they have ridden, as riding skills should be consistently reinforced and practiced in a controlled environment to be most effective. Information about existing national programs such as the Motorcycle Safety Foundation can be found at, and many states and regions have training organizations, including Streetmasters ( and Total Control (

As part of its steadfast commitment to rider safety, Indian Motorcycle has made sure its new line of apparel offers an array of safety features and technologies to protect riders, including motorcycle jackets with built-in CE-approved armor and stitching designed to help survive abrasion. Indian Motorcycle also offers a line of DOT approved helmets and a selection of technically advanced riding gloves for additional protection. The Indian Motorcycle engineering team never rides without full gear and encourages all motorcycle enthusiasts to do the same.

In addition to promoting ongoing skills development and rider safety, Indian Motorcycle encourages automobile drivers to be particularly vigilant in looking out for motorcyclists as the summer riding season ramps up. A motorcycle’s smaller size and diminished profile means they can often be overlooked on the road or in a driver’s blind spot.
