2018 Indian Roadmaster Elite
It is basically all possible "adjectives" that describes exactly those things. This right here is the cream of the crop of Indian motorcycles and is heading to raise the bar for comfort, convenience, power, style, infotainment, craftsmanship and most important of all - confidence. It is everything the Roadmaster stood for, and this time, this Elite rises higher with the industry-leading Ride Command system, a 300-watt premium audio system, chrome front and rear bumpers, passenger armrests and stylish pinnacle mirrors.
For the year 2018, this American oldest brand will give the world a brand new lineage of motorcycles that are sophisticated and technologically packed while keeping the core values of its predecessors intact of being the vintage charmers. One of them will be this Indian Roadmaster Elite which is the most ultra-premium of all Indians and the only one to get real 23K gold leaf badging on the tank. Real Gold.
2018 Indian Scout Bobber
When Polaris took over the operations ofIndian Motorcycles, they literally revived the brand from the dark shallows of the abyss and created a niche for the brand worldwide. Since then, Indian motorcycles seems to have found its stronghold in India and has been swiftly introducing more products to its existing lineup. For its new instalment on the Scout platform, the Polaris owned manufacturer has launched the 2018 Indian Scout Bobber. A black-out minimalistic approach of the Scout platform ready to tear apart the asphalt.
The reason it is in existence is credited to the purists and enthusiasts who started building one from their Scouts. So the folks at Indian decided to capture the American way of the ‘30s and built this brutally beautiful factory custom bobber. It carries around the same panache and poise of the Scout and leaves no question of having a prominent place in the lineup of this historic brand. This could just as well be the bike you’ve been waiting for, and I cannot wait to decipher the logic behind this.
Ducati is finally launching the Monster 797 and Multistrada 950 on our streets.

Triumph Bonneville Bobber vs Harley Davidson Roadster
The influence both these people have on us is simply a matter of a little sparse, a little spare, and an exercise in understatement. We just love it when we see either of them on our streets, and without a doubt being some of the world’s oldest motorcycle manufacturers, they’ve become the jack of their trades. Both Harley-Davidson and Triumph have ever been at the neck of each other and giving us products of exclusivity at its best.
For 2017, they take the game up a notch and have sounded all bells and whistles. Having a rich heritage to back them up with their newfound designs, both Harley and Triumph have created pieces of modern art that look too good to be true. They may have in some way or the other taken inspiration from each other to give birth to what could be some of the best looking iterations of their iconic brands vis-à-vis the Sportster series and the Bonneville range.
Both these machines have been launched on our soil, both of them cost the same, both of them have similar engine sizes, and both of them are the next big thing for their family lineage. Here is our extensive though on how these two modern machines live up to their iconic silhouettes.
Indian Motorcycle released a limited edition Jack Daniel’s Chieftain
In 2016, Indian Motorcycles and Jack Daniels, two legendary American brands joined forces to commemorate JD’s 150th anniversary of the Jack Daniel Distillery, which was registered in 1866. This occasion led to Indian Motorcycles building a very limited number (150 units) of the Jack Daniel’s Indian Springfield and Indian Chief Vintage motorcycle models, all of which were sold barely under 8 hours within the launch.
For 2017, the same stalwarts came together again to produce yet another iconic spin-off of the sumptuousness Indian Chieftain and christened it as the Jack Daniel’s Chieftain. This time the limited number is only a 100 units which are all designed in conjunction with Klock Werks Kustom Cycles.
DSK Huosung launched the limited edition Aquila 250
DSK Hyosung might not be the favourite brand in town, but they have some serious potential machines that could give a stiff stare to the competition. One of them is the Hyosung Aquila 250 that was launched in 2014. Doing so, it officially became the most affordable V-twin cruiser available in India today.
For 2107, the bike received an update with three new colour options and this updated version is set to be a limited run of only 100 units. There are however no mechanical changes on this and also seems to miss out on the Automatic Headlamp On feature that seems to come on all the updates by other manufacturers. Neither is the engine BS-IV compliant.
Seldom comes a motorcycle when it is an exemplar of unprecedented luxury and sumptuousness. But in case of Indian Motorcycles, there have been several such examples. A company as old as over a century, the Indian Motorcycles offers you bikes like no other manufacturer with its machines which successfully try to pamper you with their sybaritic appeal.
The motorcycles of Indian are certainly not cheap, and not for everyone too. There are very few motorcycles in the world which come close to the opulent persona of the Indian’s motorcycles, especially the one which are positioned at the topmost end. The Roadmaster is one such motorcycle from Indian which has raised the standards of craft and attention to detail in case of motorcycles.
In today’s date, the Roadmaster is the flagship motorcycle from Indian, and is regarded as one of the most impeccable touring motorcycles sold around the world. Overall, the Roadmaster looks premium and lavish from every angle, and tries to justify its premium positioning in terms of price and segment. Here’s a quick look on what all things make the Indian Roadmaster this desirable.
Indian Motorcycles has launched a new two-wheeler, Roadmaster in India few days back but they have not made any public announcement so far.
The bike is a touring cruiser and its price starts from Rs. 37, 00, 000, the price differs based on the color of the bike that you choose. Indian Motorcycle is basically an American brand based in Springfield, Massachusetts, U.S. with a glorious history of its own. This two-wheeler company has seen many ups and downs, it was even a great competitor to Harley Davidson and presently it still stands apart from the other two-wheeler companies based on the quality bikes it produces.
The 2015 Indian Roadmaster, according to its company is built upon the exemplary Roadmaster name used by Indian in the 1940s. This bike bears in it the impression of a classic American Luxury and has been built keeping in view the Indian Motorcycle comfort, styling and performance out on the open road, for the long distance rides and is available in three shades namely - thunder black, red ivory cream and red.
Indian Roadmaster comes with some standard features like a Thunder Stroke 111 engine for high performance delivery, Remote Locking saddle storage bags, Pathfinder LED headlamps, Keyless Ignition and Desert Tan Genuine Leather Seats for the rider’s comfort. Apart from the standard features, the bike also bears the luxury features such as Horizon Power Windshield with push-button adjustability, a total of 37 Gallons of weatherproof storage placed at different sides of the bike within an easy reach of the rider while riding, Heated rider and passenger seats with individual controls and Adjust heated grips for the right temperature with ten settings.
Apart from all these one will find many custom options for this bike too. So far with all the features included, it looks a promising bike that costs 37 Lakhs, but the reason for IM to keep the launch under the wraps is quite confusing.
Some other motorcycles currently being sold by the manufacturer in India are Indian Scout, Indian Chieftain, Indian Chief Vintage and Indian Chief Classic.
