Harley-Davidson announced that its adventurer motorcycle Pan America will be launched on February 22nd. This new “Big Trail” arrives with a 1,250 cm³ engine called ‘Revolution Max’.
Pan America was presented at the Milan Motor Show (EICMA) 2019, along with a naked “streetfighter”, Bronx, which ended up being canceled.
The 2021 Harley-Davidson Pan America has a design, let’s say, different, at least on the front. According to the brand, there is “technology behind the design”.
In their word, “Pan America is a two-wheel multi-tool built to endure, designed to explore and engineered for adventure.”
It arrives equipped with spoked wheels and off-road tires (developed in conjunction with Michellin), fairing / engine protection bars, high windshield, hand guards, crankcase protector and final chain drive.
It also has an inverted front suspension and Brembo brakes, with a double disc at the front, with 4-piston calipers.
The engine is the new Revolution Max, a V-Twin 60° with 1,250 cm³ with liquid cooling, capable of generating over 145 HP of maximum power and 12.45 kgfm / 122Nm of torque. Just to compare, the new BMW R 1250 GS Adventure has 136 HP of maximum power and 14.5 kgfm / 143Nm of torque.
Anyway, these are the information released so far. We will wait for the launch to have all the technical data.
Competitors and availability
Harley-Davidson Pan America arrives to compete, mainly, with BMW R 1250 GS Adventure, Triumph Tiger 1200 XCx, KTM 1290 Super Adventure S, among others.
It should be available in the United States in February, and in Europe in April or May.
