Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

In­dian Mo­tor­cy­clesõ new model role­out con­tin­ues with this new de­riv­a­tive of the Chief­tain range called the In­dian Spring­field.

Aimed at tak­ing a slice of the gi­gan­tic Amer­i­can bag­ger sec­tor, the model fea­tures a re­mov­able wind­screen and hard sad­dle­bags for a full-on tour­ing spec­i­fi­ca­tion.

The bike is the lat­est ad­di­tion to the larger-ca­pac­ity 1811cc V-twin range that al­ready in­cludes the Chief­tain, Chief Clas­sic, Chief Vin­tage, Chief Dark Horse and Road­mas­ter.

Work has been fo­cused on mak­ing the Spring­field very com­fort­able over dis­tance, with stan­dard equip­ment in­clud­ing ABS, a tyre pres­sure mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem, cruise con­trol, twin front rid­ing lights and en­gine bars of­fer­ing a bit of pro­tec­tion should the bike topple over.

It will cost £19,599 when it ar­rives in In­dian deal­ers at the end of April. MCN is cur­rently in the USA rid­ing the new model, full re­port to fol­low soon.
