Indian Springfield! A new bike just launched on the world by Indian Motorcycles…
Named after Indian Motorcycle’s birthplace and is an out-and-out cruiser; having said that the saddlebags and windshield are designed to be ‘quick release’ and so you can change the style and look as the mood takes you.
Similar to the Chief Vintage in styling, the improved chassis allows for the addition of a trunk.
Other comfort features include:
Rear buckhorn bar and adjustable passenger floorboards,
Tyre pressure monitoring system,
Electronic cruise control,
Powerful headlight and dual riding lights,
Air-adjustable rear shock capable of carrying up to 242Kg (533lbs)
Standard front and rear highway bars allow for the mounting of accessories and offer protection in a tip-over scenario.
Farkling: Brightly chromed forks, headlight housing, fender trim, engine covers, exhaust and handlebars with internal wiring bring the shine along for the ride. Deatiling to seat and handlebar grips…
The tank-mounted gauges help manage information needed for the long haul including a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) indicator, cruise control indicator, tachometer, electronic speedometer with odometer, fuel gauge, dual trip meters, clock and more.
