Harley-Davidson has finally unveiled the 2021 Pan America 1250. The motorcycle company has released two models, the base model and the Special model, with the latter reportedly at the technical top of the line and is equipped with semi-active suspension plus the option of being equipped with Adaptive Ride Height control.
The Pan America 1250 is a two-wheel multi-tool engineered for off-road adventures. For the 1250, Harley produced a liquid-cooled, 60-degree V-twin, DOHC international engine with variable valve timing. The engine boasts 150 horsepower and ample torque and a powerband tuned to ensure the rider has maximum control. To put into perspective, the bike has the ability to go 135 mph with the rider, passenger and full of bags.
The Pan America 1250 is informed by Harley’s touring legacy and is purposely designed to maintain high-speed handling and performance even at the maximum weight capacity. The bike is set on a 19-inch front and 17-inch rear cast aluminum wheelset. The Michelin tires, paired with the internal construction of the bike allow the rider to seamlessly switch between different riding modes.
At a flick of a switch, the rider can choose between five Ride Modes – Sport, Rain, Road, Off-Road and Off-Road Plus. In custom mode, riders can create their own custom mode, tuning the bike to its own specific combination of engine braking, C-ABS, power delivery and C-TCS settings. The Pan America 1250 brings Harley-Davidson completely up to date in terms of electronic systems.
The all-new bike is a steady advance in sophistication from its class 1936 silhouette. Harley-Davidson fans can expect the base-model to be priced at $17,319 USD while the Special edition, which features a skid plate, centerstand and brush guards amongst other additions, is expected to set riders back $19,999 USD.
