The 2021 Indian Roadmaster Elite Brings Luxury to the Open Road
The Roadmaster Elite is the most expensive motorcycle in the 2021 Indian line-up. It’s expensive, but the price is more than fair considering the quality of this motorcycle. It’s a premium touring cruiser, and Indian Motorcycles has spared no expense. This is the 2021 Indian Roadmaster Elite: an American-made tourer for crossing continents in style.
The heart of the Roadmaster Elite is Indian’s largest engine, the powerful Thunderstroke 116. This 1,890 cc liquid-cooled V-twin delivers 93 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque in the Elite, with plenty of low-end grunt. As one of Indian’s premium motorcycles, the Roadmaster Elite also boasts selectable ride modes, cruise control, ABS, rear cylinder deactivation, and more.
Other premium features include a heated leather saddle, backlit controls, Pathfinder LED lighting, aluminum floorboards, pinnacle mirrors, and over 37 gallons of practical cargo space.
The Roadmaster Elite also includes Indian’s RoadCommand infotainment system with connected traffic and weather overlays, smart navigation, vehicle status alerts, ride data, and sophisticated instrumentation. What’s more, this top-of-the-range motorcycle features an impressive 600-watt audio system as standard.
For 2021, the Roadmaster Elite is available in an exclusive Thunder Black Vivid Crystal Over Gunmetal Flake hand-painted finish. Each model undergoes a 30-hour paint process for a one-of-a-kind riding experience.
