Harley-Davidson recently unleashed its bold take on adventure touring with the all-new Pan America 1250 and Pan America 1250 Special motorcycles. The spirit of adventure touring is one of the endless possibilities and unrestrained freedom. From its inception, more than a century ago, when many roads were little more than dirt trails, Harley-Davidson has stood for adventure. Riders will soon be able to experience that freedom first-hand as the American motorcycle company has announced the Harley-Davidson Pan America Motorcycle Demo Tour.
The Harley-Davidson Pan America Motorcycle Demo Tour will include stops at adventure touring and overland events and rallies as well as H-D-hosted demo experiences at locations that allow for riders to experience the capabilities of the Pan America on- and off-road. The Demo Tour starts off in Texas on April 16, 2021.
The Pan America motorcycle introduces a revolution in technology, performance and accessibility with innovative Adaptive Ride Height and the all-new Revolution Max 1250 engine. Adaptive Ride Height is an industry-first motorcycle suspension system available on the Pan America 1250 Special that automatically transitions between a riding position when stopped, to an optimal ride height when the motorcycle is in motion. The lowered suspension at rest makes the motorcycle easier to mount and dismount, without sacrificing lean angles or ground clearance.
The Revolution Max 1250 engine is an all-new, clean-sheet design, developed by the Harley-Davidson design and engineering teams. It is a 150hp, liquid-cooled 1,250cc-displacement V-Twin, the latest in the legendary powertrain lineage of the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. To minimize the overall weight of the motorcycle, the Revolution Max engine is integrated into the vehicle as a central member of the chassis. It is designed to offer smooth, low-end torque delivery and low-speed throttle control that is optimized for off-road riding.
