2016 Indian Motorcycle Roadmaster

First Look at Indian's 2016 Long-Hauler

Indian Motorcycle's 2016 Roadmaster is the epitome of motorcycle touring comfort. And when you mix in century-old style, you get a winning combination with Indian's elite touring motorcycle.

The Roadmaster is an elegant looking motorcycle. We logged thousands of miles on last year's Roadmaster, and it was hard to imagine what Indian Motorcycle could have done any differently to make it any better. Now that the 2016 Roadmasters have arrived in dealerships nationwide, we're hoping we get another long-term tester to put another 10-or-so-thousand miles on...or hopefully a lot more! Already an iconic full-touring bike, the Roadmaster’s design is complemented with ergonomic luxury and innovation for both rider and passenger. With heated touring seating and individual controls for both seats. Leather grips. A power-adjustable windshield. Adjustable passenger floorboards. Easily removable fairing lowers with storage. Electronic cruise control. Standard remote locking saddlebags and trunk. Not to mention the Thunder Stroke 111 engine. Discover all of this and you’ll also discover that the road less ridden has no shortcuts. Additional accessory items such as a pilots back rest, swing-away passenger armrests, saddlebag liners, and different height windscreens further increase long distance comfort.
