Rated 5 out of 5 by Paint chip from 22 Roadmaster crimson I bought this in Sturgis, July 2022. By the18th of September there is over 5300 miles on her. Just rode1318 miles round trip and 400 of it in rain. Handled beautifully in two inches of water through Wyoming into SD. Getting 48-51mpg. It gets allot of attention from people. Love this bike. Sport mode!!! Wow!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by 86urRM from Bike in shop 6 weeks no resolution! Polaris does not stand behind their product. Bike in shop 6 weeks for same issue. Dealer just resets check engine light electronically. 30 miles later back on. Knock sensor. Parts only from OEM. They do not look locally at other dealerships, time waster. Upgrade Sound system not worth it. Maybe 30% louder. Sell your bike before you have warranty issues. Better yet, don’t buy one! 8k miles 2021 Roadmaster. Waste of time and money, stay with your Harley! More dealerships.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Machine X from Roadmaster Icon, one of a kind Had this bike for a while now and haven’t had any issues. This machine eats up the miles and cuts through the wind. I’ve enjoyed putting over 3k miles on it so far. Only issues with the bike is the stock seat. I only have have the heated version but I’m finding myself having to take more time off after the longer miles runs. The seat has finally broken in and it less comfortable now than it was new. It wasn’t the most comfortable saddle to begin with. It would be nice if the speakers pushed out a little more bass but they’re fine for me. Overall, I would by the Roadmaster again. Plus it still looks better than the Pursuit or HDs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Riverrat from Ride like the wind This bike is quite the upgrade from my 2015 Chieftain. Ride command rocks, the stereo is killer, and the power of the 116 is a bonus. I will likely put Vance and Hines Turndowns on it to give it more rumble. Seat is more comfy as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bombman67 from Second Time around This is my second RMDH, had a 2020 it was totaled in an accident. When the time came for a new one I didn’t hesitate to purchase a second one from Indian of Savannah Ga. Which by the way is a great team.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RoadmasterJEP from Awesome Bike I have had my bike for two months now. Not only do I love it, but my wife does as well. We are both very pleased with the way the bike rides and handles the road. Oh, and it is just down right beautiful and gets a lot of looks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cazman from The smooth ride I bought my 2015 RoadMaster when it was brand new $26k. I can’t justify purchasing a newer one because of how much they have increased in price $30.5k (minus tax, title, fees, etc.). And the $1000 military/first responders discount is gone… The gadgets are alright but my phone can do all that and more now. Warranty is weak compared to competitors. Honda Goldwing might be calling my name.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Handlebarhorse from Cream of the crop I bought this a month ago and I'm so glad I did. I've been wanting this bike for years and I finally got it. I'm still getting used to ride command and it's features. It would be better if it had android play. Or whatever you call it. Same as Apple play.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BMCS09 from 2022 Indian Roadmaster I purchased this 2022 Roadmaster to replace a 2018 Roadmaster Trike with California Side Car unit. I no longer needed the trike for two up riding. The extra power from the 116 is a huge plus. The bike is sound and well built. The only problem I am having is the battery is poor. I am operating the bike and cross my fingers everytime I try and start it. The dealer is unable to replace it under warranty until I get a fail from the battery. I sure hope it happens at home and not while I am on the road somewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eddie 63 from Love it. I absolutely love everything about this bike with the exception of the factory seat. The most uncomfortable seat that I have ever sat on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaleH from Sweet Bike! Traded in my 2017 Springfield for this Roadmaster because of the many features and because I had zero problems with the Springfield for 20000 miles. I still miss the Springfield, but love the Roadmaster for the style, storage space, and comfort , as well as the infotainment , heated grips and seat,and the power windscreen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terry6155 from Bike to have! Bought Indian roadmaster icon in March of this year. It is smooth riding and the thumper sound is awesome. It sits low in the saddle making it easier to handle at low speeds. It has option making it more fun to ride. Navigation, with Bluetooth radio and the other monitoring devices can be accessed from touch screen or controls on the handle bars. I bought some accessories along with the bike and they were simple to install with just a few tools. I got a rider back rest and passenger arm rest. My next purchase will be the boot heel shifter. The ergonomics of the bike makes you have to over extend your left foot to up shift. With the heel shifter this would not be an issue. The bike has three ride modes. In Sport mode you better hold on tight, it is very responsive throttle. Overall it's comfortable to take on long rides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maverick1970 from Roadmaster This is my 2nd indian in 2 years. Started with a 111 and now have a 116. Couldn't be happier with the performance Indian brings to the table!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bill 123 from Great Bike I've owned 8 Harley Ultras.. The dealer talked me into a test ride that I really wasn't interested in over in Des Moines. Great people there by the way. 15 minutes after I got back from my test ride I had my 2020 Roadmaster ordered. I had a 2019 Ultra only a year old with 21k on it(I put quite a few miles on my bikes) that I had to trade in. Smoother, more power and torque, better mileage, better handling, more comfortable then any of the Harleys I've owned. Best decision I ever made. I wish they would put more bass in their speakers is the only con I have with it

Rated 5 out of 5 by Darren S from 2021 Indian Roadmaster Darkhorse This is by far the nicest bike for long rides I have ever owned. I have owned most of the competitors bikes over the years including HD and this is way out front.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FrankieK from Beautiful looking bike That's what I hear everywhere I go. Stands out in the crowd. Performs very well too. Tons of upgrades over other brands. Very well balanced bike, lots of power, comfortable riding position for rider and passenger. Just wish it had better clearance while leaning

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great overall ride I replaced my 2012 Victory Cross Country with this new Indian Roadmaster classic & i couldn’t be happier…i’ve had to adjust to the handling as this is a bigger, heavier bike which rides a bit higher, but after 1000 miles i am all in & very pumped with the bike … went to the Az mexico border yesterday for a 6+ hour ride and it was terrific.

Rated 5 out of 5 by John057 from Ride is very smooth. I bought this near the end of the riding season in Wisconsin. We have over 700 miles on it before it got too cold to ride and they put salt on the roads. We love the ride. Also how low the center of gravity is compared to my Harley 2015 Ultra. The ride command is nice but takes some getting use to. One nice feature is the Home Link system so I don’t need to carry a garage door opener. I just tap the screen. Also the integration of Ride Command and Apple play is great. My navigation is always up to date when using Waze from my phone through Apple Play. Nicely done.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dannyhd from Nice features I got this recently and have only put 300 miles on so far. Very smooth and lots of power. I don't care for the heat/cool seat. It is VERY hard for passenger and myself and sits me higher than I would like to. I'm finding that alternative seats and custom parts are very limited for indian at this time. I do think more will come available I the near future as Indians are becoming more popular and competitive with other brands. Bike is put away now for winter as I live in Minnesota. Looking forward to spring to ALOT more riding in.
