The 2019 model also boasts many exclusive premium features including a hand painted custom-inspired design along with top of the line premium amenities.
Every Roadmaster Elite is an artistic masterpiece that features Wildfire Red Candy over Thunder Black Crystal paint with real 24-karat gold leaf badging. Each bike undergoes a meticulous paint process that takes nearly 30 hours to complete and is finished by hand.
New for 2019, the Roadmaster Elite receives an upgraded 600-watt PowerBand™ Audio Plus system. The high-powered system delivers exceptional sound and clarity from high-output fairing, trunk, and saddlebag speakers that are 50 percent louder than the stock audio system offered on the 2019 Roadmaster.
