Harley-Davidson may have struggled with global sales in the recent past but a turnaround may be looming. If the reception for the Harley-Davidson Pan America in the US is any sign to go by, the makers of iconic motorcycles may well have struck gold and is likely to shine bright yet again. The Pan America 1250 adventure motorcycle was launched in India earlier this year.

The Harley-Davidson Pan America, in the US, starts at $17,000 (approximately 12 lakh). It is also competitively priced when seen against some of its direct rivals. US media reports highlight that while deliveries in the country began in the starting days of May, the latest Harley bike has seen waitlist grow in many states. It is further reported that some of the dealerships here are now taking deposits.
