Indian Motorcycle unveiled the new Springfield cruiser motorcycle in the U.S. The new cruiser, Springfield, which is also expected to come to the Indian market later, has been named after the birthplace of Indian Motorcycle.
Springfield, which looks a lot like Chief Vintage of the company, is powered by a Thunder Stroke 1,811cc V-twin engine that can churn out 139Nm of peak torque at 3,000rpm. The new Indian Springfield, which is built on a new chassis, comes in two colour options,Thunder Black and Indian Motorcycle Red. It comes with remote-locking panniers and quick-release windshield. The quick release windscreen and saddlebags can be removed without the help of any tool.
The Indian Springfield gets Anti-Lock Brakes, a tyre pressure monitoring system, electronic cruise control, powerful headlight and dual riding lights. The cruiser also features rear buckhorn bar and adjustable passenger floorboards. Featuring cartridge forks and an air-adjustable rear shock with 11.43cm (4.5 inches) of travel, the Indian Springfield is capable of carrying up to 242kg for longer rides.
"The new Indian 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 Steve Menneto, president of Motorcycles for Polaris Industries in a statement. "The Springfield's unmatched versatility will win the hearts of motorcycling purists around the world."
