2014 Indian Chief Launch Program at Sturgis
However, it's now less than 10 days until the historic official unveiling of the bike. Indian Motorcycles has been kind enough to share the event schedules with us and here we go.
The 2014 Indian Chief will be publicly unveiled on Saturday, August 3, at 8 PM local time. The bike will be present at 999 Main Street at the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame. Add in live music, a guest appearance from Mike Wolfe, American Picker, interviews with Indian officials and an audio/video tribute to Indian history. Access to the even is free so you'd better cue up in time.
Here are more excerpts from the official press release:

Oh, and it looks like the rumors of Indian bringing the new Chief at Sturgis via an ultra-secret tunnel dug by aliens, so that no spies can take photos of the bike before the launch are a bit unfounded, as the aliens said they are also dying to see the new bike.
