I agree 100%! Black was the best they ever had in my opinion, and I know everyone has one of those... Would be nice if they offered the pearl white, they only had that on the Chief Classic for a couple years I think. I would definitely consider trading my Roadmaster for a new Springfield IF it came in a decent color AND came with the 116, this is assuming they would keep the classic round bags too. Springfield is the best bike they produce, with no extra plastic junk or sketchy electronics.

It is irresponsible for those with a Willow Green / Cream paint job to even thing of giving it up, but that's just me thinking out loud. Especially on a Vintage with the tan bags and seat, it is such a beautiful bike.

They wouldn't market the 2023 colors on purpose to setup a 'don't sell enough of them' excuse to discontinue would they?

Yep, 116 and keep the bags and fenders, and of course offer some better color selections.

I'm partial to black myself. This bike ended up hitting a deer at 70 mph and now looks like a chief classic after my budget rebuild. I still prefer it most days over the Roadmaster when I don't need the extra storage.

now that you have to order your bike I don't know why they don't offer ICON colors to pick from.. if the Roadmaster was offered in the Spirit Lake Blue Metallic and Silver Quartz Metallic I would order one... I just can't wrap my head around the Bronze yet have to see it in person

I think it's hard to beat this color scheme. Of course I could be somewhat biased.;)

That is one of my favorites....that Dark green and black was a good one as well....That Bright Blue this year is terrible...The Bronze Pearl Metallic is not tooo bad....but the Dark Horse Colors should apply as well....IMHO!

Indian Red was a beautiful Springfield colour especially when a top box was added.

I have only seen photos of the bronze pearl metallic scheme for 2023, but I kinda like it. It reminds of a root beer float. :)
