2017 Indian Roadmaster gets desert tan leather seats and saddlebags alongside a Rider Command infotainment system with 7-inch touchscreen
Indian Motorcycles launched the all-new 2017 Roadmaster in the US market at a starting price of $26,999 (Rs. 18.08 lakh) back in February. The true blue cruiser motorcycle comes wearing desert tan leather seats and saddlebags, but the engine remains same. The latest model in Indian Motorcycle’s cruiser range has also received several new features.
Apart from the desert tan coloured seat and saddlebags, the all-new 2017 Roadmaster Classic comes with features like heated seats and grips. The floorboards can be adjusted according to the rider’s preference. It also comes with LED lights. The colour options for the model are Thunder Black, Willow Green with Ivory Cream and Red with Ivory Cream.
A very interesting feature in the 2017 Roadmaster Classic is the Rider Command infotainment system incorporating a 7-inch touchscreen equipped with navigation, radio, USB and Bluetooth connectivity options. It allows the rider to control several functions with just one touch along with showing several datas of the motorcycle.
Among other features available with the model are cruise control, ABS and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). The leather saddlebag and the box at rear can be detached if the rider wants those to be removed. Impressive fact is that those bags come with a total carrying capacity of 122 litre. However, the standard Roadmaster gets 142-litre of storage capacity.
Power source for the 2017 Indian Roadmaster Classic is a massive 1,811 cc Thunder Stroke V-Twin engine. The air-cooled engine is capable to pump out 161.6 Nm of peak torque at 3,000 rpm. However, the power output of the 392 kg weighing motorcycle is yet to be disclosed by the American motorcycle manufacturer.
The brand offers the regular Roadmaster in Indian market for a price close to Rs. 40 lakh (ex-showroom). We predicted that the Classic could arrive in India sometime this year and it seems like the launch is on the cards. It is already listed on the company’s Indian website and could come with a premium of Rs. 2-3 lakh over the standard Roadmaster.
