Indian reveals the Roadmaster
Snapshot: The Roadmaster will make a comeback in 2015 and will compete with the likes of Harley Davidson Electra Glide
Just two days ago we had reported that Indian is planning to revive its 'Roadmaster' in 2015, but not much was known about its looks. Finally Polaris owned Indian has revealed the pictures of the Roadmaster which will make its grand entry in 2015.
As reported, it will also be equipped with the same 1,811cc 'Thunder Stroke' engine that is found in all the three models from Indian in the market. The bodywork includes an electrically adjustable screen, a 140 litres of luggage capacity in the hard top box and panniers, and heated seats and grips. To make it more customisable than its competitors, the temperature of the grips and seats can be adjusted, and to make it more wow, pillion floorboards are adjustable too. It also has remote central locking for the luggage, keyless ignition, LED lights and the 'Indian War Bonnet' on the front mudguard.
You can further customise it by opting for pillion armrests, a heel shifter and extra chrome racks for more luggage space. Performance can be uptuned by opting for 'Big Sucker' air intake kit which, according to Indian, improves throttle response and a decent performance boost.
If you find it too heavy than there is something planned for you as well. Indian is planning to revive something which is, according to me, the most respected Indian ever. Indian Scout - the bike on which the legendary Burt Munro broke the land speed record at Bonneville - is also going to hit the markets once again. And if Indian sticks to the basic 'Scout' design that existed between 1920 and 1949, it should be a smaller, peppier and lighter motorcycle from the Polaris owned motorcycle manufacturer.
