Indian Motorcycle has just released details on its new 2016 Indian Springfield. Named after the birthplace of Indian Motorcycle, the Springfield was designed to offer classic styling blended with modern technology. In short, it's here to deliver a healthy mix of touring comfort and urban versatility.

The Indian 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. The Springfield hard bagger was developed with a trunk-compatible chassis for higher loading capacity and a premium touring experience without sacrificing handling prowess, says Indian Motorcycle. 

The Indian Springfield sports a quick-release windshield for rider and passenger comfort. Other comfort features such as remote locking hard bags and adjustable passenger floorboards come standard along with leather seating, 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.

Powered by Indian's road-proven Thunder Stroke 111 engine, the Indian Springfield delivers 119 ft./lbs. of torque. Its unique new chassis was designed to handle a wide load range, featuring cartridge forks and an air adjustable rear shock with 4.5 inches of travel for safely transporting up to 533 lbs. 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 17-gallon 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 Indian Springfield starts at $20,999 in Thunder Black and $21,549 for Indian Motorcycle Red. It comes with a two-year unlimited mileage factory warranty and, as with all new Indian Motorcycles, includes free membership in the Indian Motorcycle Riders Group for one year.
