Harley-Davidson recently held the exclusive launch event for its first adventure touring motorcycle, the 2021 Pan America 1250.
The Pan America’s liquid-cooled V-twin engine, called the Revolution Max 1250, is actually a structural component of the chassis, resulting in a lighter bike minus the traditional frame and tight handling. The engine can deliver 150hp at 9,000 rpm and 127.4Nm of torque at 6,750rpm.
Built for long on- and off-road trips, the model is equipped with satin-black cast aluminum wheels and Michelin Scorcher Adventure tires. The front fork and rear shocks come with compression, rebound, and hydraulic spring preload adjustability.
The Pan America has five pre-programmed ride modes—Sport, Road, Rain, Off-Road, and Off-Road Plus. There is also a customization option where the rider can combine power delivery, engine braking, Cornering Enhanced Antilock Braking System (C-ABS) and Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System (C-TCS) settings.
Part of the production team for the adventure tourer’s global reveal video is actor and brand ambassador Jason Momoa.
“On behalf of Harley-Davidson, I’m beyond excited to introduce the motor company’s first adventure touring bike, and the film I created for this moment. From the defiant originals and to the vanishing point of the modern road, today Harley-Davidson and I begin the next chapter,” he wrote on Instagram.
The Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 is available in Vivid Black and River Rock Gray for $17,319 (around P843,500).
