A closer look at Harley Davidson’s bid into the ADV segment

Harley Davidson has ventured into the ADV segment with the launch of the Pan America 1250. While it carries the Milwaukee heritage, Harley Davidson has built the engine, the chassis, and the rest of it, from the ground up. So, let’s dive deeper, and take a look at these detailed images of the Pan America 1250.

Firstly, the Pan America 1250 is available in two variants: Standard and Special. While both look similar, there are some goodies that only the ‘Special’ variant gets, but more on that later. 

Upfront, the Pan America sports an all-LED horizontal headlight. Just above it is the tall wind-shield to effectively deflect oncoming wind blasts. 

Moving ahead, Harley Davidson has thrown in a 6.8-inch touchscreen TFT display. You get a trip-meter, tachometer, navigation, fuel level reading, tyre pressure (standard on the Special variant), Bluetooth-connectivity, battery voltage, and engine temperature, among other information. 

Powering the Harley Davidson Pan America is a liquid-cooled 1252cc 60-degree V-twin that belts out 152PS at 9,000rpm and 127Nm at 6,750rpm. It’s mated to a six-speed transmission, aided by a slip-and-assist clutch. Harley Davidson claims the Pan America 1250 can deliver a mileage of 20.4kmpl. 

Moreover, the motor also gets Variable Valve Timing, which helps to improve the power and torque distribution over the rev-range.

On the electronics front, the Pan America 1250 gets five riding modes: Sport, Road, Rain, Off-Road, and Off-Road Plus. 

It also gets cornering ABS, traction control, hill-hold control, tyre pressure monitoring system, cornering enhanced electronically linked braking and cornering enhanced drag-torque slip control. 

The Pan America 1250 is sprung on 47mm USD forks and a linked monoshock, both with compression, rebound, and preload-adjustability. While the ‘Standard’ comes with conventional Showa springs, the ‘Special’ variant gets semi-active Balance Free Forks and Balance Free Cushion-Lite rear shock (from Showa) with ride-height adjustability. This lets the rider lower the bike by an inch or two considering the 869mm seat height is pretty high. 

Carrying a heft of 228kg, the bike surely needs to stop with precision. Hence, the Pan America 1250 gets dual 320mm discs up front and a 280mm rear disc with dual-channel, cornering-enhanced ABS.

The bike sits on a 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheel wrapped in Michelin Scorcher Adventure dual-purpose tyres. Harley Davidson also provides optional spoked wheels with tubeless Michelin Anakee off-road tyres for the Special variant. 

On the accessories front, the Pan America 1250 gets a skid plate, adjustable windshield, heated grips, center stand, steering damper, and radiator shield among others. 

While the ‘Standard’ variant is priced at $17,139 (approximately Rs 12.04 lakh), the ‘Special’ retails at $19,999 (Rs 14.47 lakh). However, Harley Davidson will likely bring the Pan America to India via the CBU route. That could further push up prices, with the ‘Standard’ and ‘Special’ variants likely to retail at Rs 20 lakh and Rs 23 lakh-Rs 24 lakh, respectively. 

Once launched, the Harley Davidson Pan America 1250 will square off against the BMW R 1250 GS and the upcoming Ducati Multistrada V4.
