For all of us that are shocked, I think Indian forgot about what started them back up...
Harley still has the Fatboy and Heritage.
I agree. HD quit making Springers and Road King Classics some time ago due to lagging sales. IM did well with the Vintage, but retro bikes seem to have a relatively short shelf life.They make what sells, the classic bike sales have dropped every year since they have been out, a few liken them, but the modern 21st century bikes are what's making money
Offering the soft bags as an option or choice for 2022 must be confusing, too complicated for I/P to figure out LOL.As 2021 Vintage owner I was disappointed to see the Vintage dropped from the lineup. But as far as I know the Springfield and Vintage are essentially the same bike the only difference being hard vs soft saddle bags and some fringe. It would have been easy for Indian to allow owners to choose soft bags as an option when ordering a 2022 Springfield. View attachment 656091 m
I've thought about selling my hard bags and buying some custom Boss Bags. Probably breakeven, but I would have to swap out my Rinehart slip-ons, as well. Too much work.Offering the soft bags as an option or choice for 2022 must be confusing, too complicated for I/P to figure out LOL.
Yeah, unless I'm missing something I believe now the Vintage & Springfield are essentially the same bike, but I've been wrong before I expect I/P might offer the "leather" bags & fringe as an option or add on. But if so, the price for the bonded leather will be stupid high.
