“We’re thrilled to bring the world together virtually to showcase the inspiration and passion behind our 2021 motorcycles, including a glimpse of our first adventure touring motorcycle, Pan America," said VP Marketing Theo Keetell. “We look forward to sharing this moment with our customers and dealers from around the world.
The Pan America motorcycle is a very significant product as it's Harley's first proper attempt in the ADV segment. It first broke cover in an advanced prototype form at the EICMA 2019 Motorcycle Show in Italy. In terms of mechanicals, it sources power from a 1,250 cc version of Harley-Davidson's new Revolution Max engine. This engine makes use of 60-degree, liquid-cooled v-twin set-up with DOHC. It is known to put out 145 PS of maximum power and 122 Nm of peak torque. The company claims that it has used a balancer shaft to keep the vibrations at a minimum.
