The Biggest Splash In the Market
The Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 has undoubtedly been a before and after, not only in the Milwaukee brand, but throughout the motorcycle industry. It is one of the most groundbreaking motorcycles that has hit the market in recent years, and that has also been transferred to the number of sales. For the first time in its history, Harley-Davidson launches a model beyond the custom world and is tested in the Adventure Touring category, with an extraordinary result.
The ‘Pan Am’ has been designed from the ground up to offer an option for the brand’s most adventurous enthusiasts. Those who do not want to leave the brand of their dreams aside, but also want to travel on the road or on dirt roads of any kind without any problems.
Among the components that have made the Harley Davidson one of the best bikes of the moment is the powerful Revolution engine. It is a new 1250 cc liquid-cooled 60° V-Twin liquid-cooled twin-cylinder engine that delivers 150 hp of power with a peak of 9500 rpm and 127 Nm of maximum torque with four valves per cylinder (2 exhaust and 2 intake) and DOHC double overhead camshafts. To minimize the high weight of the bike (242 kg), the engine has been integrated as an element of the chassis and special materials have been used in addition to specific studies to make the best use of the material.
The chassis of the Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 has also been the subject of much careful study, reviewing every millimeter to reduce its weight as much as possible through the materials used in its construction. The instrumentation has also been created to facilitate riding on trips thanks to its 6.8″ TFT screen with easy visibility. It is touch-sensitive and has Bluetooth to enjoy all the functionalities of the cell phone. In addition, it also has a wide collection of assists to improve the confidence and safety of the bike’s occupants: electronic combined braking, cornering ABS, cornering traction control, cornering torque control and hill start control.
In addition to the features we have discussed, the Pan America has many other qualities that make it the most talked about bike in the US at the moment, however, we are going to focus on what matters to us: its wheels.
