First thing first, the Rs 48 lakh price tag of the Indian Roadmaster Elite is actually the ex-showroom price. Which means, if you were to purchase this motorcycle, the final price will come out to be well over Rs 50 lakh. That’s about half a Crore rupees which you’ll be spending on a motorcycle. And if you are wondering at this point about who will buy this motorcycle in India? Well, Indian Motorcycles allotted two motorcycles for India (it is a limited edition motorcycle with only 300 units to ever be made) and at the time of the launch of the motorcycle, announced that both the units were already sold out. What makes this motorcycle so special? Well, the list is quite long. But, we have decided to compile a few of those features below along with some images to give you a detailed look of the motorcycle.

Well, if you are spending this kind of money, it better be having some gold in it. The Indian Roadmaster Elite comes with a beautiful dual-tone black and cobalt blue paint job and as per the company, the motorcycle is painted by hand and takes over 30 hours to be completed. The highlight, though, is the fuel tank which has a 23-karat gold leaf badge on it.

If you weight the motorcycle with a full tank, the Indian Roadmaster Elite weighs in at a whopping 433 Kg, and, it is almost 9 feet in length. Carrying on with everything being big is the engine which is named as the ‘Thunderstroke 111’. This is a 1811cc engine that makes a mammoth 150 Nm of torque which is delivered as low as 2900 RPM. Oh, and the engine cover is in gold too.

The Indian Roadmaster is also equipped with features to the brim. The first thing that will catch your attention is the huge 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system on the dash. The motorcycle comes with Bluetooth connectivity and will also showcase maps on the screen along with navigation for the rider’s convenience. The system can be operated through the handlebar mounted buttons too but if that’s not your thing, then the screen supports gestures like swipes and pinch to zoom as well. To let you know exactly what condition your motorcycle is in, the system also showcases several statistics about the motorcycle as well. And, it comes with a key fob that has a proximity sensor which is picked up the motorcycle. Why? So that you don’t have to take the key out of your pocket. Just sit on the bike, it will sense the key is with you, and the motorcycle can be started through a button next to the infotainment system. Also, the wind deflector is adjustable, electronically. It can be lowered or raised by the touch of a button on the handlebar.
