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.


The 2016 Roadster offers excellent performance when it comes to cornering. It owes its impeccable handling to the inverted front forks and a new 43mm front suspension that features a new steering geometry and cartridge damping.
