The 2016 Roadster is built for comfort. The bike comes with a new low profile two-up seat that is not only very comfortable, but that also offers an all-day riding experience without the rider feeling tired. Contributing to its comfort is the premium suspension built to endure all that the road can throw on the bike’s way.
