2017 Indian Roadmaster www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Outstanding steering geometry
The steering geometry of the Roadmaster® was engineered to deliver light, responsive handling, whether ridden solo with no cargo or two-up with full saddlebags.

7+ Gallons of Cargo Space
The longer the hauls, the better. The Indian Roadmaster® offers over 37 gallons of weatherproof storage between the saddlebags, trunk, fairing and lowers. The storage compartments in the lowers can be accessed from the front seat, and the saddlebags and trunk can be locked and unlocked remotely with the key fob.

REMOTE-LOCKABLE HARD SADDLEBAGS and Trunk
Your cargo is protected inside convenient, spacious hard saddlebags with weatherproof seals. You can even lock them remotely using a console-mounted button, or via the bike’s key fob.

Design inspiration
To design this fairing, our team looked for inspiration outside of the motorcycle industry. They landed on the sleek and powerful streamliner locomotives of the 1950s. With these classically styled machines as their guide, a new icon for Indian Motorcycle® was born.

LED head and driving lights
As if the Roadmaster® wasn't already premium enough, it also includes LED lighting from end to end, illuminating the road for safer riding, day or night.

Chrome headdress
The most powerful icon in motorcycling. Since 1947, the illuminated headdress has graced the front fender of nearly every Indian Motorcycle®, guiding the way from legend to legend.

ABS braking
With ABS braking, you'll ride with confidence, knowing you can brake under control in any situation.

Push button height-adjustable windshield
With a push of a handlebar-mounted button, this windshield can quickly raise or lower up to 4 inches electronically. Lower it to enjoy the cooling airflow. Or raise it to block out wind and rain.

Premium leather driver/passenger seat
A plush, leather two-up seat delivers long-riding comfort, with independent heat controls for you and your passenger.

Adjustable passenger floor boards
Spacious, adjustable floorboards provide room to move your feet and legs, for all-day comfort on even the longest rides.

119 ft-lbs of torque
The Thunder Stroke® 111 produces extraordinary torque at low RPM, so you can accelerate hard with power to spare in every gear.

Premium Concert Audio
The Indian Roadmaster® features an integrated 200 watt audio system that delivers premium-quality sound from high-output fairing and trunk speakers. Smartphones and other audio sources can be connected via cable or Bluetooth®.

Internally wired handlebars
This high-profile area features all-chrome hand controls. Plus, all of the wiring is routed inside the handlebars for a clean, premium-quality look.

Keyless ignition
Never fumble for your key again. With the proximity fob in your pocket, just climb on, press the start button and ride away. Misplace your fob? Simply enter your personal security code and go.

Cruise control
Automotive-quality cruise control is easy to set and adjust for smooth, relaxed highway cruising.

Cast aluminum frame
The Roadmaster's® cast aluminum frame is lightweight yet exceptionally strong, providing excellent low-speed handling.There’s no frame flex at speed in the corners, and you'll experience confidence-inspiring stability on the highway, where it matters most.

Weather protection and Additional Storage
The Roadmaster's® hard lowers are designed to provide outstanding weather protection, not to mention even more storage.

Heritage inspired powerplant
Designed from the ground up, the Thunder Stroke® 111 is a powerful engine offering premium performance, as well as legendary features inspired by the Power Plus motor of the 1940s:

Multi-directional finned valve covers
Downward firing exhaust
Large, parallel push-rod tubes
Organic, asymmetric fin styling
Right-hand drive
