Indian Roadmaster. Three million in two wheels

With the advent of summer, we tested the flagship model of the legendary Indian family. I must say, the motorcycle was impressive – both in appearance, and in technical solutions, and at a price …

Say right away, very little is known about Indian motorcycles in the world. And Russia is no exception. Well, at least that was until 2005, when the now-iconic Roger Donaldson movie “The Fastest Indian” starring Anthony Hopkins starred (he played the famous New Zealand motorcycle racer Bert Monroe). True, it tells about a motorcycle in 1920, which after 45 years of tuning finally managed to overcome the 200-mile bar of speed (320 km / h).

To say that Sportster has not changed at all since 1957 is impossible – the designers played with the shape of the wings and the tank, experimented with lighting and the shape of the steering wheel, and the engineers tried to refresh the design. Any Harley-Davidson fan will tell how in the early 2000s he mourned the rejection of carburetors and how he worried about the appearance of “rubber” frames.

Then, under the auspices of improving comfort, the engine was excluded from the power structure of the Continue reading
