2019 Indian Springfield Thunder Black is rated out of 5 by 266.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AZFunnGuy from The Perfect Balance of a Bike I was at the dealership to look at the Victory bikes when the Springfield was released, saw the first one to shown there, fell in love with it and haven't regretted it one bit. Perfect balance for a day to day rider and it's fully capable to take off on a long distance ride. Been upgraded to make it "My Bike", but has the reliability that shows it's a true Indian Motorcycle. Outstanding dealership, have only been dealing with them for about 7 months or so, great service for the bike and always feel welcome, not the once the bike is sold move on to the next person. Deal with them and you will enjoy the great customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ed Smith from Great Motorcycle My '16 Springfield motorcycle is far superior to all of my past Harley Davidson purchases. The buying experience solid, I got answers to all of my questions, and the sales and service team is terrific. No game show tactics here. Now with 5 months and 8,200 miles on it, the bike is as good today as the day I bought it. Outside of regular maintenance, I have not had to do 1 thing to the bike. After purchasing my Indian on May 11, 2016, I still own a CVO Road King and I have not put 100 miles on it since buying the Springfield. - If you are on a touring bike now, you really need to go and test ride this bike. The handling and performance is wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joe D from Great design Just purchased the Springfield from Indian of State College and have ridden just over three hundred miles so far. I am very impressed with the design of the bike because I hadn't been on a bike for a few years and within 25 miles I was riding like I had been on this bike for years. The handling and suspension are fantastic this bike eats up the bumps in the road like no other bike I have owned.(8 by the way) The attention to detail is amazing I find myself just standing and starring at the beauty of the engine and I get held up at every stop by people wanting to check out the bike. Great job Indian!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Biker329 from Great Ride I've had my Springfield about 7 months or so. I've put nearly 6000 miles on it. I had it upgraded to Stage-2 with Rush pipes before taking delivery at Indian Motorcycle of Lafayette". This is my second Indian, as I also had a 2014 Chieftain. The seat on the Springfield could be improved. I like the looks of the seat, but my butt bothers me after about 100 miles. I am forced to put my Corbin (I bought it for my Chieftain) seat on it for long rides. The stock air-cleaner is ugly, and to big. That's one of the reasons I decided to spend a fortune to upgrade. The Stage-1 air-cleaner is smaller, and being smaller it lets more air get to my legs for a cooler summer ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JD Trouble from A most beautiful bike I've been riding motorcycles for over 40 years. I've always had to settle for a bike that was not quite what I wanted, but that I could afford. Well, this time I bought exactly what I wanted. The Indian Springfield hit every single check-box for me, from the removable windscreen to the relaxed cruiser styling. I compared the bike to similar bikes from other brands, and while others had good qualities, the Indian was clearly better in each and every category. I've owned the bike now for six weeks or so, and even though we're at the end of Fall and closing in on Winter, I still take every opportunity to pull the bike out of the garage and ride it. I get compliments everywhere I go. She's a beautiful bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dan Buck from Retirement Gift to myself! After telling myself I would get a Harley when I retire, after seeing my buddies Heritage Softail 30 years ago or so, I started looking hard a year ago or so in anticipation of me retiring at the end of 2017. Road some, looked at some. Kept thinking, everyone has one of these. Buddy of mine told me how much he loves his Chief. So I looked at Indian. Wow! They were gorgeous. Ended up with a Springfield. Love it! The more I ride It the more I love It. Get a lot of double takes on it from people, like “ hey, wait, that’s not a Harley!”. Ya I know! What a retirement gift! Thirty years in the making.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WILL_112 from 2016 Springfield I bought this bike 1 week ago have only put 300 miles on it. I like this bike i wish somethings were improved such as the turn signal indicator shows same as 4 ways when making a left or right turn. Some of the things i like about this bike is how easy it goes from bagger to cruiser. this bike handles well and feels like a much smaller bike when you're getting into the corners. the ground clearance is good compared to my old Harley softail. this is a great bike if you want a bagger without the fairing this is the bike for you

Rated 5 out of 5 by rleerider from 2016 Indian Springfield Impression I could of bought any brand of motorcycle, however after reading Tim Russell's article on Harleys twin cam design, speaking to the dealer in Muskego, Wis, along with doing my homework and test riding I choose the Springfield Indian. I like the updated motor design, with the air cowl frame design, rake of the front fork and ease of handling. The vibration is considerablely less. My only concerns are the throttle responds with the optional Big Air Cleaner with the lag time (it's not as responsive). The other is the gear drive at low speed idle in how the bikes torque seems to chug or leap forward.
