Motorcycle enthusiasts who compare Indian to Harley-Davidson® for the first time are often surprised at the price differences, and that gap is there when comparing the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Ultra Limited® vs 2023 Indian Roadmaster. The Roadmaster is more expensive. Indian would like to sell you on the fact that this is necessary due to the high-quality of their parts and manufacturing standards. The truth is that the pricing is a marketing choice with the hopes of convincing you that more expensive equals better. But the Ultra Limited® is at the pinnacle of touring machines and simply provides greater value.


All Ultra Limited® models available through Harley-Davidson® of New Port Richey are powered by the Milwaukee-Eight® 114 V-twin engine, which is the most powerful engine that the brand uses for its standard touring models. The 2023 Indian Roadmaster is powered by the Thunderstroke 116, which is also air cooled. The performance here is similar. Perhaps the biggest difference is that the Ultra Limited® gives you the option of advanced rider assists, which are aren’t available with the Roadmaster.

Ride Characteristics

The Ultra Limited® has the fork-mounted or batwing fairing. It also a windscreen, heated grips, a state-of-the-art infotainment system, two-up seating, a backrest for the passenger, floorboards, stretched saddlebags and touring pack with luggage carrier. The Roadmaster is quite similar with all of the features that it includes standard minus the heated grips. You should also compare the infotainment systems if that feature is important to you. Most critics agree that the infotainment operating system included with the Harley-Davidson® is more user-friendly and has a more robust feature set.
