The Indian Roadmaster

 

Originally produced from 1947-1953, the Indian Roadmaster was widely recognized as one of America’s most reliable and comfortable touring bikes, and the all-new 2015 Roadmaster is destined to reclaim that honour. In keeping with its legendary namesake, the Roadmaster comes fully-loaded with premium features for comfort and convenience. Roadmaster is the ultimate statement motorcycle, a long distance tourer unmatched in luxury, featuring expansive storage capacity, class leading power and performance.

 

“It has truly been a privilege and an honour for our team to be a part of motorcycling history in designing and reintroducing the Roadmaster, which has such a legendary reputation as the king of luxury touring bikes,” said Steve Menneto, VP of Motorcycles for Polaris Industries. “The quality, craftsmanship, performance and standard feature set on this bike is simply unmatched in the luxury touring segment, and we look forward to sharing the 2015 Roadmaster and other exciting announcements with the global motorcycling community”

The Roadmaster is dripping in standard chrome, including the forks, trunk rack, front and rear highway bars, fender tips, and many other chrome components and trim that are options on other brands.
