When you think of grand touring motorcycles…you may be typically think of Harley-Davidson, BMW or even a Honda GoldWing would be the only plausible options. However Indian motorcycles are seeing quite the resurgence in the last couple of years as many motorcycle enthusiasts are looking for more perceived value, modern tech but with that classic styling too. Enter the Indian Roadmaster for 2022 for those long meanders loaded up with those essential comforts for him and her alike.
Fork mounted fairing, hard bags, trunk and passenger hugging seating, dark styling…ready for the grand tour with Thunderstroke 116/1890cc at 171Nm Torque to carry you on your way.
The Indian Roadmaster is designed for the open road and those long tours. Of course it can be used as a daily ride too, but that is not what it was intended for. Improved stock suspension and generally more included in the purchase price than any of its closest rivals, the Roadmaster will give you all the tools you need to face whatever the open road throws at you, and with the classic lines and accents, you’ll be munching up the miles in style too.
