Harley Davidson officially launched their first adventure bike, which is a big step in a new direction for the longest-running motorcycle company in the United States. The powerful Pan America 1250 Adventure Motorcycle introduces a revolution in accessibility and performance through Adaptive Ride Height technology. The industry’s first motorcycle suspension system will automatically switch between riding positions when the motorcycle stops moving to the best riding height for motorcycle sports. The suspension lowered when stationary makes the motorcycle easy to install and disassemble without sacrificing tilt angle or ground clearance. The core of Pan Am is Harley’s new 1,250 cc, liquid-cooled, 60-degree V twin-cylinder Revolution Max engine. This produces 150 horsepower and 94 pound-feet of torque at 9,500 rpm.
There is also a 5.6-gallon aluminum fuel tank, electronically controlled linkage braking, drag torque slip control, tire pressure monitoring system, slope keeping control, five driving modes, cruise control, heated handlebars, telephone connection, LED lighting, ABS, traction control, mobile map navigation display and turn enhancement functions through conventional IMU. Harley’s basic Pan America is priced at US$17,319, and the special edition is priced at US$19,999. Click here for more details about Pan America 1250.
