The India Springfield offers classic styling blended with thoroughly modern technology that offers a good mix of touring comfort and urban versatility.

The Indian Springfield is powered by a Thunder Stroke 111 engine. The engine is air cooled and the capacity is 1811cc. It makes a peak torque of 161Nm @ 2600rpm on the North American models. Maximum power is around 96hp. The chassis features cartridge forks and an air adjustable rear suspension with 4.5 inches of travel. The Indian Springfield can be quickly converted into a cruiser with the quick-release windshield and saddlebags which can be removed. It also features additional touring features that can be removed as well. The Springfield gets a new trunk-compatible chassis for higher loading capacity (533 pounds/241kg) and has good handling.
The Springfield features remote-locking hard bags and adjustable passenger floorboards. The seats are made of leather. There are a ton of electronic features on board the Springfield such as high-resolution Anti-lock brakes, tire pressure monitors and electronic cruise control. There are dual driving lights as well for added visibility. There are standard front and rear highway bars that allow mounting of accessories and also prevent damage when tipped over. Chrome is also used generously on the Indian Springfield. There are brightly colored chrome forks, headlight housing, fender trim, engine covers, exhaust and handlebars. The split seat can be trimmed down to create a tight and low solo look.
Additional accessories that can be fitted on the Springfield include a tall and low windshield, heated driver and passenger seats, soft lowers, a 17 gallon (64 liters) accessory trunk and heated grips.
