GLORY IN THE RIDE ...

Your perfect road is out there. And there’s only one way to find it: on an Indian® Springfield™, a modern motorcycle equipped with all the touring essentials.


Named after the birthplace of Indian Motorcycle® and designed for a pure riding experience, the Indian Springfield™ features a traditional style, quick-release windshield, black leather rider and passenger saddles, and all-weather, remote-locking saddlebags.

It’s equipped with the most essential touring features but designed for ultimate versatility. It can be stripped down into a cruiser when the windshield and saddlebags are removed or become a fully loaded touring model with Genuine Indian Motorcycle® accessories.

The all-new purpose built trunkcompatible chassis delivers a 25-degree rake and 5.2-inch trail for unmatched handling and balance even when fully loaded.

Now available in two-tone color options, Steel Gray over Burgundy Metallic and Blue Sapphire over Star Silver, the Springfield™ is equipped with the most essential touring features but designed for ultimate versatility. While maintaining the style and luxury Indian Motorcycle is known for, the Indian® Springfield™ carves its own niche in the bagger and touring category.

Named after the birthplace of Indian Motorcycle, the Indian 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. Remote locking hard bags and adjustable passenger floorboards come standard along with genuine leather seating, ABS, TPMS, cruise control, and a powerful headlight and dual driving lights. Indian Springfield is offered in Thunder Black or Indian Motorcycle Red. New for 2017 are stunning Steel Gray/Burgundy Metallic and Blue Sapphire/Star Silver two-tone finishes. Starting at $20,999.


AT THE END OF EVERY ROAD IS A STORY.


You. The road. Nothing else. That’s the definition of pure riding. And that’s exactly what you get with the Indian Springfield™, along with features like a keyless ignition. Quick-release windshield. And remote-locking saddlebags. Want more? Add a premium audio system, should you ever want a new soundtrack to go with the satisfying rumble of your Thunder Stroke 111 engine. Be legendary.

Meh.....another big cruiser in an already overcrowded segment.......both the sport bike and cruiser market segments are far too overcrowded, often with manufacturers offering basically the same models but with minor cosmetic tweaks.
Always ask why.

I, for one, love the look of cruisers. This looks very nice. I like it because it doesn't have big fat fairings in the way.

Note: I am going to hold off updating the Cool Wall this week for a day or two as I'm working at the Total Motorcycle 17.2 launch.

I went with: Cool

I'll just put this out on the stoop and see if the cat licks it up but It's 50's retro done right IMO. I think (and I'm not knocking them) H-D could pick up a few styling cues from the Springfield. H-D loves retro, heritage and history. There current batch of cruisers, while are retro-inspired, just don't look retro 50's. And for whatever reason, the 50's are in (Triumph Bobber anyone?). So Indian has done a great job running this up the flag pool and getting people to salute it!

The price is what keeps the 2017 Indian Springfield from being awesome... at $21-26k, that's new car price!

True, but from the looks of the 2014-2017 model years, the sportbike and cruiser segment is dying; which is a real shame... Could be then why the manufacturers are not "going out on a limb" anymore.

2017 Indian Springfield - Coolness Factor = 73.0%
Featured: April 28th, 2017 - May 5th, 2017
Most popular vote category: Awesome

Image

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=54329
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... gfield.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2017 Indian Springfield is:

Awesome (3 points) 9
Cool (2 points) 8
Uncool (1 point) 3
Fail (0 point) 1

Total votes: 21

= a Coolwall Factor of 73.0%

Total Motorcycle's Take-a-way: With cruiser sales slowing and selection dwindling down, it's good to see Indian releasing another new cruiser. H-D could take a page out of the 50's heritage style here. Also the natives are getting restless and want something new in cruisers... can radical design change be near? Remember the 80's cruisers vs the 90's-2000's design?

It's a real slim victory for the Awesome vote. You usually don't see a bike voted Awesome in the low 70's in score. But there you have it.

Mike

Get excited as the next TMW Cool Wall bike for 2017 is now up for voting and discussion, have fun!

It's pretty, but after what Polaris did to the Victory brand, I'd be very unlikely to buy any Polaris product. Indian could well be another orphaned brand in a few years.

Overpriced, overweight pig with styling that is purely form-over-function. Air-cooled, which is totally inexcusable on a $21,000 motorcycle. Fail.
