Indian Motorcycle Announces The Indian Springfield
Named after the birthplace of Indian Motorcycle and designed for a pure riding experience, the Springfield is a versatile new addition to the 2016 lineup. It features American craftsmanship, refinement and only the most essential touring features for the ultimate in open road touring without distractions.
Inspired by the rich heritage of Indian Motorcycle, the Springfield offers classic styling blended with thoroughly modern technology for a purist’s take on both touring comfort and urban versatility.
The Springfield can be quickly converted into a cruiser with the quick-release windshield and saddlebags removed, or transformed into a high-capacity touring model with Genuine Indian Motorcycle accessories. While maintaining the style and luxury for which Indian Motorcycle is renowned, the Indian Springfield makes its own distinctive mark in the bagger and touring category.
While related to the iconic Indian Chief family, the multifaceted Indian Springfield hard bagger was developed with a unique new trunk-compatible chassis for higher loading capacity and a premium touring experience without sacrificing handling.
Designed for an unobstructed view of the road ahead, the Indian Springfield sports a bespoke quickrelease windshield that creates a large air pocket for rider and passenger comfort. Other comfort features such as remote locking hard bags and adjustable passenger floorboards come standard along with real leather seating, high-resolution Anti-Lock Brakes, tire pressure monitoring, electronic cruise control, and a powerful headlight and dual driving lights. Standard front and rear highway bars allow mounting of accessories and offer valuable protection from tip-overs. Brightly chromed forks, headlight housing, fender trim, engine covers, exhaust and handlebars with internal wiring bring the shine along for the ride.
“The new Springfield wasn’t designed to fill a space in our lineup; it was built to fill a space in the hearts of riders who value the rich heritage and fine craftsmanship of Indian Motorcycle, and who want both a pure touring bike and a sleek urban cruiser,” said Peter Harvey, Country Manager.
Powered by the highly regarded Thunder Stroke 111 engine, the Indian Springfield delivers all the torque you need to conquer any highway in any weather. Its unique new chassis was designed to handle a wide load range, featuring cartridge forks and an air adjustable rear shock with 113 mm of travel for safely transporting up to 242 kg in style.
Touring comfort can be further enhanced with a full line of accessories including a tall and low windshield, heated driver and passenger seats, soft lowers, a 64 litre accessory trunk and heated grips to keep riders comfortable in cool temperatures. Yet in minutes its quick-release windscreen and saddlebags can be removed creating a classically styled, high performance cruiser. The split seat, featuring a unique stitch and stud pattern, can likewise be trimmed down to create a tight and low solo look, giving the Indian Springfield a truly customizable personality.
The 2016 Springfield comes in Thunder Black and Indian Motorcycle Red.
Priced from $33,995, the Springfield will be in Dealerships this March, 2016.
