Indian Roadmaster Bike Overview
Fully kitted out with a 1811cc V-twin, air-cooled engine (the same as the Chief and Chieftain), you can sit comfortably for hours on top of the Roadmaster. Although it being a pretty heavy bike, 421kg wet weight, the low seat height allows for easy maneuverability at low speeds and you can reach a top speed of approximately 110mph.
Matched closely with Harley’s Electra Glide, there’s plenty of added extras with the Roadmaster including a fantastic windscreen that’s fully adjustable, brilliant sound system that’s audible up to 70mph and heated grips and seat, keyless ignition and lots more to make for the perfect ride.
Start pricing for the Indian Roadmaster is around £21,000.

Beautiful bike to ride
Brakes serve the bike well
Smooth ride, powerful
Very economical for its size 3 different ride modes.
For a heavy bike, it's a very smooth ride, don't notice the weight when touring, need to think about very slow speed turning and stopping at junctions, especially on gritty or wet surfaces. Takes corners well, probably far better than I feel comfortable taking them.
Far more powerful than I am ever likely to use, very smooth through the gears, even in 6th gear when cruising still plenty of power available if required. Cat got a bit hot with standard pipes, not been a problem since upgraded to stage 1 pipes.
Service intervals at every 5000 miles a bit low when averaging 7500 a year. Averaging 45 miles to the gallon which I think is reasonable for an 1800cc engine. Insurance reasonable with 5 years plus no claims. Difficult to compare to previous bikes as Roadmaster top end of market and purchased for touring which it does extremely well.
Solid build, never let me down, nearly 15k from new. One puncture but still able to ride her home after temporary plug repair. Had a couple of paint issues with front and rear fenders and chrome on front engine bars, all replaced under warranty by dealer with no issues. Shorting issue with wiring in seat, after severe wet weather riding, still got home with no problems, dealer sorted short issue under warranty, no further problems.
No problem stopping, tend to use engine braking and thinking ahead to avoid the need for heavy braking. Brakes more than adequate, tyres give good grip.
