Indian Motorcycles is expanding their portfolio in India one after the other right from smaller entry-level motorcycles from the brand to the very top-end of the market. All of this started with the Chieftan then we saw the lovely Scout and now we see, this, the latest addition to their lineup is the new Indian Springfield. It is your typical high-end American cruiser styling with lots chrome, bling and road presence like no other.
The Indian Springfield comes under the Bagger category of bikes in the company’s lineup. The Springfield is meant for long distance touring and it shows as the cruiser gets three headlights for epic proportions of illumination of the road so that the evening doesn’t stop you from riding. There is also a large windscreen at the front keep your helmet and chest wind blast free. Design wise we can see the traditional use of chrome, which can be seen used at the engine and exhaust pipe. There are genuine leather seats on offer and there is a lot more to like about this!

The list include ABS, Cast Aluminium Frame with Integrated Air-Box, Cruise Control, Front and rear Highway Bars, Keyless Start, Quick-Release Windshield, Quick-Release Hard Saddlebags, Tire Pressure Monitoring system, Adjustable Passenger Floorboards and much more is on offer on the instrument cluster.
