Indian Motorcycles has silently launched the Roadmaster Classic in India at ₹ 41.17 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai). Dealers are accepting bookings for the motorcycle at a non-refundable amount of ₹ 5 lakh.
Powering the mammoth motorcycle is a 1,811cc 'Thunder-Stroke' V-twin engine. Indian Motorcycles do not reveal the power outputs of their motorcycles, however, this is air-cooled mill belts out 135Nm of peak torque at 2,100rpm. The hefty looking Roadmaster Classic is heavy with a dry weight of 392kg. The entire Roadmaster range is built on the Indian Chieftain platform.
As interesting as the motorcycle's looks can get, the bike also has a whole load of modern features. The standard features include cruise control, a tyre pressure monitoring system, heated seats and grips, keyless ignition and adjustable floorboards with LED lights. ABS is also a standard feature. The most interesting feature remains to be the Indian's 'Rider Command' infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen display. It is paired to radio, USB, Bluetooth, navigation and also displays all the relevant riding data.
Despite the modern tech, the retro look is thanks to the desert tan leather seats and saddlebags. The leather saddlebags and the top box can be detached when not needed and have a total capacity of 122 litres. This is a little less than the 142 litres on the standard Roadmaster.
With this launch, touring has just got a bit cooler for Indian fans and enthusiasts.

The motorcycle is available in all three colour schemes including thunder black, willow green over ivory cream and red over ivory cream. It will however take two and a half months to get the bike delivered after the booking is done.
