2022 Indian Springfield Dark Horse Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

This is a stylish, confident, supremely comfortable, and powerful bike that’s perfect for weekend drives and has the storage you need for even longer trips.

 

Air-Cooled V-Twin

The award-winning Thunderstroke power plant delivers exceptional torque. And three ride modes—Tour, Standard, and Sport—give your bike the feel that’s right for you.

Classic American Styling

Whether you choose to cover the bike in chrome or black out the finishes, the Indian Springfield embraces the legacy of America’s first motorcycle company.

 

Superior Handling

With the Indian Springfield’s cast aluminum frame, low seat height, and ergonomic controls, riders will be instantly comfortable—and inspired.

 

Secure Storage

The hard saddlebags are sturdy and nearly bottomless. Plus, there’s remote locking, so you can know your stuff is always safe.

 

 

Thunderstroke and PowerPlus Models

            Models

Indian Motorcycle Thunderstroke and PowerPlus-equipped motorcycles range from baggers to touring models – each offering heritage-inspired design or blacked-out, modern style. Air-cooled baggers and touring models, including Springfield, Chieftain and Roadmaster lineups, pack the Thunderstroke motor, while Challenger models deliver a class-leading 122 horsepower with the liquid-cooled PowerPlus engine. With high-displacement motors, Indian Motorcycle bagger and touring models were engineered to dominate the road. Saddlebags and the Roadmaster tour trunk provide plenty of storage for riding gear and cargo, while wind protection, comfortable ergonomics, floorboards, amenities, and a comfortable two-up seat make these models the ultimate long-distance machines.

This year’s 2022 bagger and touring lineup receives fresh new paint colors across each lineup. Colors like Quartz Gray on the Chieftain Dark Horse and the all-new Spirit Blue over Black Metallic on the Challenger Limited add to each bike’s attitude.

 

Accessories

To accommodate additional storage needs on longer rides, Indian Motorcycle has released its Spirit Lake Luggage Collection, which includes a Rack Bag, Day Bag and Touring Bag. Each piece features a shoulder strap for convenient carrying off the bike and attaches securely to luggage racks, sissy bars, or the rear of the passenger backrest. Each piece is sold separately but designed as a cohesive collection.

In addition, bagger and touring riders can add personalized style and add visibility to other motorists with all-new rear LED saddlebag lights. Designed to seamlessly integrate with the standard lighting, these Pathfinder Auxiliary LED Saddlebag Lights do not require any drilling, but rather feature a convenient peel-and-stick adhesive for easy and quick install.

New for 2022, Indian Challenger riders can add wind protection with the addition of Hard Lower Fairings. Designed specifically for Challenger models, the Hard Lower Fairings are compatible with all 2020-2022 model year offerings. Riders also have the option to add PowerBand Audio or additional storage compartments within the Hard Lower Fairings.
