The Roadmaster Classic reimagines what a heritage-inspired American touring motorcycle can be. Welcome back, Americana

THE new Roadmaster Classic reimagines what a heritage-inspired American touring motorcycle can be by blending iconic styling with the ultimate in modern touring amenities.

The Indian Roadmaster Classic features loads of high quality genuine leather, including a premium touring seat, saddlebags with fringe, and a new leather trunk. Large enough to hold two full-faced helmets and constructed with a built-in passenger backrest, the leather-adorned trunk can be kept on for a full touring experience or quickly detached to create a more streamlined look.

Further adding to the beauty of the motorcycle, Roadmaster Classic features valanced fenders, chrome details, and stunning two-tone paint options.

The bike’s eye-catching vintage style combines cutting-edge technology to ensure rider and passenger travel in comfort. A keyless ignition with proximity fob, throttle-by-wire cruise control, heated grips and seats, Pathfinder LED headlamps, power adjustable windscreen, adjustable passenger floorboards, tyre pressure monitoring system, anti-lock brakes, 100-watt premium audio system, and Indian Motorcycle’s much-lauded 7-inch Ride Command infotainment system all come standard.

With power to spare, the Roadmaster Classic’s Thunder Stroke 111 (inspired by the Power Plus motor of the 1940s) produces 119 ft-lbs of torque with extraordinary output at low RPM so you can accelerate effortlessly in all six gears.

Indian Motorcycle’s telescopic fork front and air-adjustable single shock rear suspension soak up the bumps while offering superior feedback.

Balanced braking comes from dual 300 mm semi-floating rotors with four-piston calipers up front and a single 300 mm semi-floating rotor with two-piston caliper in the rear, with stainless steel reinforced lines and high resolution ABS.

Riders can customise the Roadmaster Classic with a wealth of additional leather and chrome accessories, including passenger armrests and trunk mat specifically designed for the Roadmaster Classic. Additionally, riders can enhance the riding experience with a touring or flare windshield, lower fairings, genuine leather extended reach seat and Infinite Highway Pegs.

Roadmaster Classic can be upgraded with an integrated garage door opener or Indian Motorcycle’s Premium Touring Console.

Complementing the Roadmaster Classic Genuine Leather Trunk and Saddlebags are Genuine Leather Accessories, including grip, lever, highway bar and floorboard wraps, tank pouch, rear highway bar bag, mud flaps and saddlebag fringe.

There’s still history to be made crossing the country, exploring the coast or your weekend escape. For riders who choose the Roadmaster Classic, it’s guaranteed to make those stories legendary.

The Indian Roadmaster Classic will be available in three colour options: Black, Willow Green and Cream, Indian Red and Cream.

The Indian Roadmaster Classic will be available in Australia from April and will feature a ride away price of $38,995 for the black colour option and $39,995 for the two-tone colour options.
