Details
  • Thunder Stroke® 111: Designed from the ground up, the Thunder Stroke® 111 is a powerful, award-winning engine with 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; Right-hand cam cover; Classic 2/3 head-to-cylinder neck down
  • 33 Gallons of Leather-Wrapped Storage: Take the long way ’round. The Indian Roadmaster Classic offers 33 gallons of cargo space. The quick release leather-wrapped trunk fits two full face helmets.
  • Genuine Leather Saddlebags: These distinctive genuine leather saddle bags were custom-designed to match the iconic look of the Roadmaster Classic. These touring bags feature adjustable metal buckles and leather fringe.
  • 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 Brakes: With ABS brakes, you’ll ride with confidence, knowing you can brake under control in any situation.
  • Design Inspiration: To design this fairing, our team looked for inspiration outside of the motorcycle industry. We landed on the sleek and powerful streamliner locomotives of the 1950s. With these classically-styled machines as our guide, a new icon for Indian Motorcycle® was born – a streamlined front fairing with a chrome headlight nacelle that accentuates the style.
  • Pathfinder LED Head and Driving lights: As if the Roadmaster® Classic wasn’t attention-grabbing enough, it also includes LED lighting from end to end, illuminating the road for safer riding, day or night.
  • 119 ft-lbs of Torque: The Thunder Stroke® 111 produces extraordinary torque at low RPM, so you can accelerate effortlessly with power to spare in every gear.
  • Adjustable Passenger Floorboards: Perfect for the open road, these spacious, adjustable floorboards provide room to adjust your feet for all-day comfort on even the longest rides.
  • Desert Tan Leather Seat: A plush, genuine leather two-up seat delivers long-riding comfort, with independent heat controls for you and your passenger.
  • Push-Button Power Windshield: With the push of a handlebar-mounted button, this windshield can quickly raise or lower electronically. Lower it to enjoy the cooling airflow. Or raise it to block out wind and rain.
  • 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.
  • Premium 100-Watt Audio System: The Indian Roadmaster® Classic features an integrated 100-watt premium audio system that delivers premium-quality sound from high-output fairing speakers. Smartphones and other sources can be connected via USB cable or Bluetooth®.
  • Cruise Control: Automotive-quality cruise control is easy to set and adjust for smooth, relaxed highway cruising.
  • Heated Handgrips: With 10 heat settings to choose from, your hands will always be comfortable. Plus, all of the wiring is routed inside the handlebars for a clean, premium-quality look.
  • The Indian Motorcycle® Ride Command® System: Pinch. Swipe. Tap. All without removing your gloves. Through this industry-leading seven-inch display, you can get turn-by-turn directions. Quickly find points of interest. Play Bluetooth® audio. Check vehicle information and status, plus a whole lot more. And thanks to split-screen technology, you can easily customize the display to focus on the details that matter to you most.
  • Cast Aluminum Frame: The Roadmaster’s cast aluminum frame is lightweight yet exceptionally strong, providing excellent low-speed handling. There’s minimal frame flex at speed in the corners, and you’ll experience confidence-inspiring stability on the highway.
  • Genuine Leather Trunk: The distinctive genuine leather trunk was custom-designed to match the iconic look of the Roadmaster Classic. With a capacity of over 16 gallons the genuine leather trunk can hold two full face helmets. Convenient access to your smaller items is available in the top trunk pocket.
  • Custom Teardrop Badge: The Roadmaster® Classic is loaded with chrome accents such as this new teardrop tank badge inspired by Indian Motorcycles of yesteryear.
