Upgrade for Indians

The latest addition to Three Rivers, Massachusetts based Mustang’s growing Indian Motorcycle portfolio “ditches the classic chrome studs and leather fringe for updated sporty styling plus a host of rider-friendly features.”

Available for all ’14-later Chief, Chieftain, Springfield and Roadmaster models, the new 2-up Mustang Wide Tripper features a “streamlined one-piece design that places riders slightly lower and further back compared to the stock seat.”
The low-cut driver area is said to sit the rider comfortably “in” the motorcycle rather than “on” it, offering easier ground reach and commanding control. A high-quality expanded vinyl cover, offered in black or distressed brown, provides the appearance of leather with added durability to withstand harsh elements. The handsewn covers feature a unique diamond-stitch design for a true off-the-shelf custom appearance.

Available with or without a fully adjustable and easily removable driver backrest – one that is said to provide fully tailored lumbar support with its fore/aft and up/down positioning. The built-in driver backrest receiver is mounted directly to the baseplate, offering easy tool-less installation and removal.
Mustang says that all its seats are handcrafted and shaped with a proprietary controlled-density polyurethane-based foam that “requires no break-in period and retains its shape after years of use. The patented foam compound provides even weight distribution and support across the Wide Tripper’s 13” wide driver area and 10” wide passenger area.”
