Rated 5 out of 5 by from Springfield Dark Horse is a great bike Now that I have put a few thousand miles on my new bike, I have had no issues whatsoever. It performs as well as the many bikes I've had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected My last bike was a Yamaha Virago over 30 years ago. I was a little concerned about the weight. I shouldn't have been. Very comfortable with a low center of gravity. I got the red seat package as well as highway bar and passenger boards. Just waiting for the windshield and running lights. Didn't make me too happy. I think the weight may have had something to do with me escaping possible injury or worse. One of those plastic totes (16X24X16 quesstimate) fell out of the truck ahead of me (doing speed limit, 70 mph, and back a ways. No tailgating). It's bouncing, I'm guessing which way is it going. I guessed right but not right enough. I clipped it going about 70. My foot was resting on the highway peg attached to the highway bar. The hit knocked my foot off the peg, but the bike reacted like Rocky..."Is that the best you got!" And it didn't even flinch. After a minute I looked down and saw that the rubber floorboard pad was gone. I didn't go back to look. When I got home, I saw the bar AND the bolt attaching it to the frame was bent so far back that the floorboard was resting on the highway bar. I'm alive and kicking. I credit the bike to a large degree.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Ride I like the way the bike looks and handles. I get a lot of looks when I'm riding. The bike feels light and smooth. Corners nice. I like the 116 C.I. engine. It responds quickly. I like the sound of the engine. I like key fob and the fact that you can automatically lock the bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A rare gem in my neck of the woods I have only had this dark horse for two months and have have loved every minute of it. It’s well balanced, great for me at 5’8”. People continue to seem amazed by it when I pull up next to them. Saddlebag fits a small soft yeti cooler perfectly. Really well lit for night rides. Have 600 miles on it so far and wake up every day hoping to get another ride in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome bike I love this bike only issues is lack of horsepower and 4000 room limit. Other issues is fuel gauges are estimate, always almost a gallon left of 5.5 tank but everything says empty and does not match trip milage . Wish horn button was easier to reach, too close to light switch. The big power button and the ignition switch should be ONE,would like to see side panels fit better so I don't see gaps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth finish Every time i look at my bike in the garage, i find more details to it that i hadn't seen before, stainless steel brake lines name placards with indian stamped on it. The dark horse in Thunder smoke is such a nice look with very few glossy parts that it balances well from one black to the next. Such a smooth ride & a head turner. As mean as this bike looks it has the power to back it up. Coming from street bikes for 18 years transitioning to this cruiser wow the power does not let you down, the balance from a big cruiser on this bike is phenomenal. You need to take a test ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Springfield Dark Horse I was out of riding for almost 40 years. I bought a Kawasaki EN650 Vulcan back in early 2019. Took the 2-day MSF and was off and running again. Rode that back for one year and then made the jump to Indian. I have not been disappointed in any of the experiences. The staff at Mall of Georgia Indian were great and the bike quality and looks are still amazing to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall just an amazing bike. Ive owned many other cruisers, including Yamaha, Honda, Sazuki, and Harley; and this is by far my favorite cruiser. Tons of power, rides smooth, looks great, great features, etc

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal Motorcycle In the 5-6 weeks of owning my Springfield DH, I have put on ~1400 miles and not a single mile has disappointed. I'm a "no frills" kind of guy and expect everything on my bike to directly relate to performance. This motorcycle EXCELS at that! Indian has made a beast of a bike in this 2020 model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark Horse its the one I last bought a new bike upon return from Gulf war. I enjoyed it and rode it from East to West coast. This Dark horse I just bought exudes an increased level of technical features, smooth engine and style I admire more than the leading competitor. I expect this to be my last bike and to ride it eventually the entire 4 corners of our great country.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well balanced. Great power. I bought this bike and it is not just a bike. You own the road when riding this and this machine is fantastic on the corners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Motorcycle I’ve Owned Couldn’t be any happier with the 2019 Springfield. Plenty of power, comfortable ride & handles like a much smaller bike. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bike Bought a month ago - Winter in Ohio so haven't ridden much but in the first 200 miles I love it. Traded in a 2018 Scout, which I loved also but didn't have room in the garage for both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Indian I bought the 2019 Springfield Darkhorse to complement my Chief Vintage that I’ve owned for 3+ years. Having both now is great. They are the same but different. The shorter wheelbase and steeper rake on the Springfield gives it quicker steering and a lighter feel. Both have the 111 engine but are mapped different. My Vintage is black with tan leather and my Springfield is white smoke. I put the 5 inch shorter tinted Jack Daniels windshield on the Springfield. Locking bags on the Springfield. I love both and it’s fun having a choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has great features and is a very smooth ride. I already own an older Indian. Just wanted to test drive a newer Indian

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ride and power I ride (and love) a 2016 Springfield. The new model feels similar, but the 116 motor is so much more powerful. They set me on the ride mode of touring, and the around town riding was very similar to my own bike. The difference came when I got to the highway and accelerated. There was a lot of power, which continued in every gear and at every RPM. Very fun ride. The controls felt smooth. Only complaint was that I prefer a windshield at highway speeds (it was a cold day!).
