Indian Motorcycle has announced the renewal of its partnership as the headline sponsor for the Indian Riders Fest 2024 (IRF24).
This partnership marks the continuation of a successful collaboration that marks the 10th anniversary of the official Indian Riders Group and celebrates the spirit of riding. With an extra day added to the programme off the back of a record-breaking attendance of bikers from 39 nationalities this year, IRF24 aims to bring together riders and fans from all corners of the globe to reconfirm its position as one of the most significant gatherings of Indian Motorcycle enthusiasts globally.
Located in České Budějovice (Budweis), Czech Republic, from July 13-16, IRF24 promises a host of activities, exclusive product showcases and unforgettable rides. In addition, the festival’s 2024 theme, ‘Back In Time’, will take participants on a journey through the storied history of Indian Motorcycle with an immersive experience that pays homage to the classic designs and innovations that have defined the brand over the years, illustrated with a display of iconic vintage models.
“We are delighted to renew our partnership with Jean-Marie and the IRF team for Indian Riders Fest for 2024,” Grant Bester, Vice President International for Indian Motorcycle, told Gonzo. “Indian Motorcycle has always been committed to the riding community, and the IRF is not just a celebration of our motorcycles but also highlights the dedication of our riders. The rapid evolution of the IRF since 2019 is a testament to the team and as the major event on the international calendar, it allows us to connect with owners at a deeper level. After the hugely enjoyable time I had at the 2023 event, I cannot wait to meet, and ride, with everyone in Budweis again next year.”
Alongside a variety of food and retail stalls, festival-goers will be thrilled with performances from the Wall of Death;, live concerts; a genuine Indian Motorcycle apparel shop; the Indian Motorcycle Roadshow truck offering test rides on the latest models; and much more.
Another major feature of the 2023 festival was the AMD-approved Budweis Indian Motorcycle Custom Show, the only custom show to be 100 per cent dedicated to Indian Motorcycle. Back with official AMD approval for 2024, the larger custom show will again be a showcase for skilful builders and incredible craftsmanship. I’ll bring you more details of the 2024 Budweis Indian Motorcycle Custom Show as they become available.
Until the end of October, attendees can take advantage of special “early bird” discounted prices on IRF24 tickets, Riders Packs, and hotel accommodation. Additionally, the event offers a unique ‘Two Person’ ticket option and Riders Pack, providing a 15 per cent saving over buying two separate tickets.
