第一印象 - 这就是它的了!

The Bars

The Indian Springfield Dark Horse… Ape Hangars Seriously? In the first 30 seconds of my first ride video, I mentioned it. Yes, Seriously Ape Hangars. Totally comfortable and capable! I loved them the whole way home which was about a 45 minute ride with a combination of interstate and in town traffic management. The bars make up a major part of the Eloquent Industrial look of the Springfield Dark Horse and they were the first feature to draw my attention. Our sport bike riding friends commented their opinions and I stated don’t knock it until you try it! This was my first ride with hangers as high as my shoulders (which is the local limitation) and I was certainly impressed.

挡风玻璃供斯普林菲尔德黑马虽然我们的自行车尚未配备之一。穿着my Blaze Vest,I took blasts of freeway grit to my neck and arms as they were stretched out and high. As powerful as the bike is, I concentrated on holding on when accelerating as I took a lot of wind blast to the chest and face. 0 – 65 mph riding was comfortable, after that I started to feel the wind pressure and felt especially focused on my grip.

请与我们为我的想法未来事件在酒吧的感觉上长途旅行。

我一直喜欢挂钩th地板e option of stability over comfort. But… I’ll tell you after my initial learning curve, Indian sure spoiled me with the floorboards on our Springfield Dark Horse. Their ‘Headdress’ design is long and wide, but not so wide I can’t comfortably put my feet down at stop lights. The board lengths are very nice for adjusting my leg position for comfort and the boards are tucked in close enough that I don’t feel like the freeway wind will push my legs out of position. I don’t have real long legs (I’m 5’6), so I need to keep in mind not to get too comfortable with my feet too far back on the boards because it can be quite a reach to the shift and rear break levers.

The Machine

对于在印度摩托车的历史上第一次,一个116立方英寸的雷击引擎提供某些机型上,直接从工厂。我们的斯普林菲尔德黑马体育这个惊人的雷击电厂。它有一个6速变速器49度V型双缸。同样在雷击阵容是头目酋长有限公司酋长复古路线大师黑马RoadmasterRoadmaster Elite和非常特别的2020印度斯普林菲尔德黑马杰克丹尼限量版。Our math converts that displacement to 1900 cc’s. That’s a big engine. With that said, Indian managed to keep this bike under 800 pounds (758 dry weight to be exact). Impressive! ABS brakes give it the stopping power it needs.

The Maneuverability

随着758磅考虑,印度斯普林菲尔德黑马是非常灵活的。我可以形容它的最好办法是像一个神奇的扫帚,这是我一直想要的。座椅是低,所以很容易对我来说,安装,扁平足和转移脚架的重量。单撑到了后,我的黑马换到一档和开球飙升像万圣节之夜女巫。我喜欢它!

As a motorcycle enthusiast, journalist and MSF RiderCoach, I’m involved in the motorcycle community every day. I often hear of incidents where both new and experienced riders have tip overs at very low speeds or with the engine off while maneuvering a motorcycle around the garage or driveway. As heavy bikes reveal their weightiness when not at speed, the ability to flat foot, muscle around and maneuver heavy bikes really can save you from a garage incident. I’ve got no complaints whatsoever as to the engine off maneuverability around my over packed garage (aka toybox) and I don’t embarrass myself while maneuvering the enormous 2020 Indian Springfield Dark Horse around parking lots. I am eager to try it out on the MSF Range to see how it performs on low speed cone weaving exercises.

The Special Features

Indian did their homework when designing this beautiful machine.

当有较大的发动机驾驶摩托车,我总是想到发动机的热天热流量骑行时。斯普林菲尔德黑马有一个叫做后停缸,你可以打开或关闭与车把上的换档杆的点几下鼠标功能,它是很容易改变,而在一个红绿灯。I turned it on when night riding at 80 degrees ( I knew it was 80 degrees because the display showed it with another quick click of a selection lever.) I felt engine heat at stop lights but wasn’t blasted with a blower full of hot air. I’ll turn the Rear Cylinder Deactivation off in the chill of the morning and welcome the heat, though. Follow us for future episodes to see how that feature works for me.

The Springfield Dark Horse offers three different riding modes, Standard, Touring and Sport. It’s easy to select your preference when you start your ride for the day. I selected the Standard Mode for my first couple days on the bike.

Adjustable Suspension is another amazing feature you’ll find on the 2020 Springfield Dark Horse. It comes with a pump to easily make your adjustments and a graph is printed on the underside of one of the side cases. You can estimate the weight of rider, passenger and item’s and make your adjustments. Later on this on our passenger episode.

侧箱体及按键

Indian calls them ‘Slammed Bags’ and guess what…they work with on a keyless entry system. Their shape really looks nice and streamlined, not enormous but big enough to take lots of items along for the ride. Locking side cases are such a wonderful thing to have on a road trip. It’s nice to pull into a roadside diner after a 200 mile stretch and have a burger, knowing your Springfield Dark Horse has your stuff locked up safe.

Keyless Entry

智能钥匙用于锁定和解锁“砰袋”也是一个起动发射机。只要我有它在我的人没有密钥是必需的。我要告诉你,实在是一个礼物,印度的礼貌。与把手套,然后记住他们每个车手斗争已经在口袋里掏来检索的关键。根据你的牛仔裤的密封性,外套拉链,或在你的钱包,钥匙骑马是一件美妙的事情!印度确实投一组键,以及,一个需要停车时锁定叉额外的安全性。

The Seat

The ‘Two Up Rogue Seat’ is surprisingly comfortable for as sleek as it looks. This design includes a ridge at the back of my rear that feels right natural and keeps my center from sliding back when accelerating. This design is especially appreciated when taking on wind at high speeds without a windshield. More to come later on how it feels to be a Springfield Dark Horse passenger.

“......有这么大的权力,我是立即挡风玻璃希望。”

我们升级

雷击阶段1滑移式尾气

这个Stage One Slip on Exhaust upgrade使得自行车的声音令人振奋和平均无正在热映的响亮或恼人。Eric和孩子们能听到我和斯普林菲尔德黑马通过与足够的时间来打车库门开启器按钮我附近来。印度的网站上说,不仅不升级产生丰富的,嘶哑的排气注意,它可以让一个雷霆冲程发动机呼吸更自由,释放出具有增强型中档扭矩和油门响应额外的电力。此升级成本$ 699.99美元对对,你可以选择黑色或镀铬。A variety of Exhaust Tips are sold separately.

雷击Stage One Performance Intake

Indian upgraded our Springfield Dark Horse intake with the雷击Stage One Performance Intake。印度人网站指出,升级将“增加3%的马力”到使功率与任何发动机的关键是丰富的空气和燃料流入燃烧室。交换你的股票的空气过滤器这个阶段高性能空气滤清器,以创造更多的功率和提高acceleration.This防水阶段绩效空气净化机的好方法设计与无纺布媒体,以提高通过更好的流动能力,并提供高efficiency cleaning to protect your engine from damaging dirt and debris.’ They also state that the synthetic filtration material operates at high filtration efficiency and doesn’t require filter washing like paper based filtration systems. Also, it looks pretty awesome, inspired by muscle car designs. The price point is$519.99USD and color options are black or chrome.

前叉行车灯

斯普林菲尔德黑马大灯机舱(TMW编辑 - 机舱,我不得不look这一个!)说到股票与开/关按钮,你应该选择添加一个地方前叉行车灯。Check out ourYoutube and Facebook videofor this episode to see the incredible difference these lights make. They offer more than double the light to my panoramic view while night riding and could be the difference between seeing wildlife or debris in time to avoid an incident or not. A smart upgrade indeed as more illumination can only be a good thing. The price point is$ 289.99USD,颜色的选择是亚光黑色或亮黑色。

16 in. Ape Hanger Handlebar Kit

The stock bars are 12 inches, so this16 inch upgrade给你增加4英寸。我上面提到的那t I’m 5-6, so this upgrade makes my hand position parallel to my shoulders. In Utah, any higher than your shoulders is not legal. As a distance rider, it’s important to me to mention these handlebars position my arms low enough as to not expose my delicate armpits to UV rays. Evenings after my rides are absolutely enjoyable without sunburns. The positioning is just comfy comfy! Indian’s website states that this upgrade ‘infuses classic cruiser style’, and they’re certainly right about that. The kit comes with clutch extender cables etc. and can be purchased for$ 309.99USD and you can choose from polished (chrome) or gloss black.

第一印象 - 摘要

On first impressions, the Springfield feels a lot lighter and nimbler than it looks, and there’s so much power that I was immediately wishing for a windshield. Controls are easy to reach, but there’s a learning curve to the foot controls if you’re not used to big wide floorboards. The seat is comfortable, and so are the higher bars, but again it’s hard to hide from the wind with your arms spread so wide. I had a great time riding it home, and we’re exciting for all the riding we’ll do on it this summer.
