I wouldn't be all that surprised GTO.

Harley Davidson managed to sell two units of the CVO Limited this year - one both in Jan and Feb. And its their flagship motorcycle priced at 49.9L ex showroom, even higher than this Indian! People are spending BIG money on some motorcycles for sure.

I would be interested to know how these bikes are being used though.

Meanwhile, here are some videos of the Roadmaster Elite -

Let's all show this news to our Dads and record their reactions.

140 litres of cargo capacity is 20% more than my A-star's.

Tell moms too, and watch their reactions on hearing about 23 Carat Gold plated bike parts.

Not to mention ALL of that chrome!

Those are most likely to end up as garage queens! Or probably 'Mine is bigger than yours' at a couple of biker events or breakfast rides. And in a year after somebody loses interest in his toy, it may be listed at 45 Lacs just cause they are the 'very rare' CVO model!

Unlike sport bikes with their exclusive Performance models (denoted by R or S etc) that have better shocks, brakes, wheels, exhaust and other performance stuff, these cruisers are basically more show value.

Well to each his own...
