Indian announces new Roadmaster

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

As it did in 2014, Indian Motorcycle is using the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally to introduce something new. For 2015 it’s another new take on an old classic – the Roadmaster.

The original Roadmaster was produced from 1947-1953 and, says Indian, “was widely recognized as one of America’s most reliable and comfortable touring bikes.” The new Roadmaster, they say, “is destined to reclaim that honour,” coming “fully-loaded with premium features for comfort and convenience.” 

Some of those features include: ABS; tire pressure monitoring system; cruise control; Bluetooth capability; infotainment system; heated grips; heated seats; lower fairing with adjustable airflow; power-adjustable windshield; and close to 143 litres of storage in its dual saddlebags and quick-release rear trunk. Oh, and that all comes standard.

The Roadmaster has an MSRP starting at $29,999 and Indian says the bike should reach Canadian dealerships in late 2014.
