Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not off to a great start Purchased Roadmaster Dark Horse about a month ago and now have about 700 miles on the bike. Bike is comfortable, fit and finish is nice. Really do not like the road command and do not find it to be very intuitive. Continue to have problems with AppleCar Play. Every time I use app, it completely shuts down within 20 minutes of use. Doesn't matter if its playing music or using navigation. I do not have this issue in any of my other vehicles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ride and balance of this bike is phenomenal. I I went to the Indian dealership almost on a whim. I’ve been riding Harley-Davidson bikes for almost 20 years, never thought I’d ride anything else. Once I sat on the Indian and stood it up off of the kick-stand I was sold. Within the first few miles of our test ride, my wife said “we are riding this home”.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ride quality This is my second roadmaster . The mono shock rear suspension is second to none. along with its power windshield and diamond stitched seats, this truly is a must check out before you settle. Owned , Harleys, Yamaha, and Suzuki.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Ride I bought my 2020 Roadmaster on 12 Nov 2020. As soon as I pulled out of the dealership parking lot I knew this was the right bike for me. I considered by a Harley to go with the one I already have. However, when I compared the Electra Glide to the Roadmaster it was a no brainer for me. Option for option the Roadmaster offered more than the Electra Glide. I compared similar levels of model and it was an easy choice. Especially since the Indian was $10K less. I've put on over 1K miles on my Indian, even in 16 degree weather, and love it. The balance is dead on. I can put on the cruise control and ride with a very light touch and the bike glides straight and true. The 116ci motor really gets up and goes. Going through roundabouts is a breeze. The sound system is really good. Did I mention the 16 degree weather? Well the heated seat and grips take care of the chill for the most part. There is one thing I really dislike about the bike. The horn sounds like it came off of a kids scooter or Honda car. I'll be getting new horn as soon as I can find one that puts out some serious decibels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Roadmaster Traded in one of my older Indians for this bike and loving it. My wife isn't riding her own much anymore and wanted all the comfort for long haul rides and this fits the bill perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Ride I have ridden many types of motorcycles in the past 60 years, mostly Harleys, but after test driving my first Indian in 2017 I knew before leaving the parking lot that this bike was for me. I just got a new 2020 RoadMaster and I have never been happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Ride I purchased my bike in October and love it so much that I am finding hard to put it up for the winter. I live in Indiana and it is December, I am still riding every chance I get. The bike is very responsive with handling and power. This has definitely been the best bike I have owned. Very Satisfied

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the 116 motor This is my fourth RM, but my first Dark horse with the improved ride command though. The 111 motor was impressive. The 116 is in a new "awsome" class, all by itself. The new ride command, not so much. Its been out for over a year now. There are no instructions yet on how to use it. Nothing. The oute download from my computer doesn't work. The Bluetooth route from your phone ride command app, that worked great, isn't available anymore. Luckily, the USB wasn't taken away. Bits the only think that seems to work as before. The rest area search can't even locate rest areas that I'm sitting in as I do the search. Pitiful. The search locator arrows, pointing you in the direction of upcoming waypoints, points down. This tells me that what I want is already behind me. The arrows pointing up are for waypoints already to my rear. Pitiful and confusing. It seems like there was no beta testing done before releasing this version

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream machine My second motorcycle built by Polaris. I was not disappointed with either, but this Indian has tremendous power and comfort. I have only put 500 miles on it yet both my wife and I love this bike. I have yet to master the ride command however that too seems to offer a lot of information without taking your eyes from the road for to long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It"s A Bike that Fits. When you first swing a leg over and ease down. Comfort, Solid, come ride, and t.hen the soothing V twin sound. It"s all Right There. And it runs like It should without extra kits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2020 Roadmaster I have had a Yamaha Stratoliner, Kawasaki Vulcan, Harley Davidson Road Glide and two Honda Goldwings. So far, I like my 2020 Roadmaster the best, as a all around motorcycle. It is very fun to ride and with all of the options and electronics it is at an higher end of motorcycles. Fit and finish is great and I love the sound and power from the 116 engine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bike !!! 2020 Roadmaster Dark Horse 2000k on it since September 14th. Bought the Bike from Head Motorsports, Columbia, MO. Best experience I have had buying a bike, period!! This bike is a BEAST !! The only complaint is the Kick stand is WAY to far forward.. I'm 5-10" and have to lean in to bring it back, not good... Overall, best decision I have made...
