Vance & Hines, America’s premier manufacturer of motorcycle performance products, has announced the launch of its exhaust system for the new Harley-Davidson Pan America. This slip-on exhaust takes Vance & Hines into a new segment of the industry, adventure bikes (ADV), which is experiencing significant worldwide growth. The offering for the Harley-Davidson Pan America precedes additional Vance & Hines systems being designed to fit other popular ADV models.
The Vance & Hines Adventure Hi-Output 450 delivers a performance increase of 5 lb-ft (6.7 Nm) of torque and over 5 HP versus the bike’s stock exhaust. It reduces the overall weight of the Revolution Max-powered Harley by nearly 6 lb (2.72 kg). The product is designed with V&H’s distinctive look, a massive 4.5″ stepped, high-output canister constructed of 304-grade stainless steel with a brushed finish and a ceramic-coated, CNC-machined, billet aluminium end cap. The riveted badge showcases a new laser engraved logo graphic which will be used on all Vance & Hines ADV and off-road products.
For rider comfort, the mid-pipe has been designed to improve the rider’s boot clearance while standing on the pegs. The system delivers a Vance & Hines signature exhaust note while meeting the SAE Standard J2825 sound levels. It maintains the bike’s 50-state emissions compliance.
The new Vance & Hines exhaust is compatible with Harley-Davidson factory saddlebags. A US Forestry Spark Arrestor will be available as an add-on for riders travelling off-road. The Vance & Hines Adventure Hi-Output 450 Exhaust System for Pan America will be available through retail outlets in October. It will sell at $599.95 that converts to AED 2,203.57.
