Just finished a quick 80 miles on MD’s Indian Roadmaster Classic test bike. Very impressed so far. Like other Indians we have tested, the Roadmaster Classic has a refined, powerful nature, and handles well for its class of motorcycle.
Of course, the reason this bike exists is a rider’s desire for touring comfort and convenience. I can already tell the seat has plenty of support, and found no comfort issues during the initial ride. The saddlebags and top case offer huge carrying capacity (I confirmed the top case will hold two extra-large, full-face helmets).
This is an expensive motorcycle with an MSRP starting at $26,999. Nevertheless, this is definitely a full-dress tourer with gorgeous leather covering the saddlebags and top case for a vintage look. Touring amenities include heated grips and seat, together with a power windshield, and Indian’s big, 7″ “Ride Command System” that gives you a legible, easy-to-navigate screen up front and center with plenty of information (we will detail that later), including an excellent stereo.
We are looking forward to putting some serious mileage on the Roadmaster Classic. We will even put a passenger on that inviting seat (with backrest). Stay tuned.
