Yeah, we know, styling is arbitrary, but the Metallic Jade over Thunder Black paint is an undeniably striking colorway (sorry, Indian Red!). The deep green is subtle until sun hits it, igniting the tiny metalflake. Tastefully applied pinstripes delineate the Metallic Jade from Thunder Black. The dark tones of the paint combo make the copious amounts of chrome in the powertrain pop. Even subtle styling cues like the Indian script logo on the tank add to the Springfield’s panache. We’ve been approached on the street by several random people asking if they could snap a picture of the bike, which is further validation that Indian hit the nail on the head with the styling.
