The Roadmaster’s reputation for excellence is already well understood in Europe, but the new ELITE version has propelled the model to the top of its category. Similar to flying long distance in business class, the level of equipment, elegance and comfort of the Roadmaster Elite really does elevate long-distance touring to a ‘premium’ level.[Not a valid template]
Roulez en première classe
The lines and beauty of the ELITE are something to be marvelled at; the blue and black bodywork with those beautifully rich 23-carat gold leaf lines.
As you get closer, you immediately notice the gold on the engine covers too, as well as the Indian signature on the bottom of the saddlebags.
It sports a chrome headdress and front and rear bumpers, as well as chrome around the top case. The cockpit is equipped with the Ride Command infotainment system, with a second fuel gauge on the fuel tank (in addition to the Ride Command one), as well as a voltmeter providing an immediate visual gauge of the charge level. An LED headlight beam increases the power and the quality of the light out the front, making it perfect for riding long into the night.
Pinnacle mirrors come as standard and the rider and passenger’s footrests are also given the ELITE trim touch. Your passenger also enjoys special treatment with their own heated leather seat and height-adjustable pivoting armrests, giving them comfort that’s just not available on any other motorcycle.
For extra acoustic power and comfort during long tours, Roadmaster Elite has a 300-watt front and rear audio system. Smartphones and other audio sources can be connected via a USB cable in the saddlebag, or by Bluetooth.
Like all of the models with a Thunder Stroke 111, Euro 4 compliant engine, the Roadmaster Elite has a 15 hp increase in power and a 15N increase in torque for 2018. Fasten your helmet, slip on your gloves, rev up the engine and experience newfound pleasure on the open road.
