2015 Indian Roadmaster Shows Up, Photos, Video and Price Available

Just like we announced earlier, the all-new 2015 Indian Roadmaster was around the corner, but we didn’t expect it to make appearance THAT soon. Still, the more Indian bikes we get sooner, the merrier, so here are the first photos of the bike, alongside with the debut official commercial for the new tourer.

We already knew that the platform used for this bike will be the same as the one for the Chief Classic and Vintage, as well as that of the Chieftain, so it was the looks and functionality departments who were about to get new stuff. A direct hit aimed at the Electra Glide, the 2015 Indian Roadmaster brings old-school touring features to the game with a trunk, lower protectors and upgraded seating for both passenger and the rider.

Storage and therefore – road worthiness was upgraded significantly for the Roadmaster, and there will be plenty of riders who will be thrilled to learn that the new bike comes with a64.4 liters (17 gal) of trunk storage, complemented by 9 additional liters (2.4 gal) in the lower fairing glove box and 3.8 liters (1 gal) in the upper fairing.

The standard version comes equipped ABS, cruise control, a highway bar, keyless start, a Horizon power windshield fir for touring, remote locking saddlebags, desert tan leather seats with heating, tire pressure monitors, heated grips, adjustable passenger floorboards and a 200W stereo system. Passenger comfort was also increased with a matching leather backrest and arm rests attached to the trunk.

In other technical aspects, the Roadmaster appears to be identical to the Chieftain, with the added weight of the trunk and lowers, even though Indian lists both bikes with the same mass. We’ll soon deliver you a generous high-resolution photo gallery, but until then, you should know that the 2015 Indian Roadmaster is available for $26,999 (€20,095).
