Taking its name from the original Roadmaster produced between 1947 and 1953, the new version uses the 111ci Chieftain as a base, adding a bunch of premium features for comfort, convenience and luxury, including expansive storage capacity.
Mechanically, the Chieftain's Thunder Stroke 111 engine and 6-speed overdrive transmission are carried over unaltered, with the new variant available in Thunder Black, Indian Motorcycle Red, or a two-tone Indian Motorcycle Red/ Ivory Cream paint scheme, lavished with chrome trim.
Built for two-up touring, the new Roadmaster features dual hard saddlebags and carpet-lined topbox for 143 litres of lockable, weatherproof storage. Heated grips, power adjustable windscreen, adjustable footboards, lower fairings with adjustable airflow, and heated seats are other features.
Other premium additions include high-res ABS, 'Pathfinder' LED lighting, keyless ignition, a tyre pressure monitoring system, electronic cruise control and an advanced infotainment system
Scheduled for local release in October/November, the Indian Roadmaster will carry a rideaway price of $38,995.
