ADVENTURE ON & OFF-ROAD
The iconic motorcycle company from Milwaukee, Illinois, has finally done it – take it off the road, that is. The all-new Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 Special is its first-ever off-road adventure tourer, and it was worth the wait. The bike is everything you expect from a company so attuned with details and exceeds expectations for its incredible rideability.
The Pan America 1250 Special has Harley-Davidson’s DNA. The gas tank hints of the 883 Sportster, but the high clearance of the rear mudguard and the slim horizontal headlights showcase a bike that’s all its own genre. The Revolution Max 1250 engine is uniquely designed to be a structural component of the chassis. It does away with the need for a traditional frame and any extra weight that it entails. Cornering Rider Safety enhancements like electronically Linked braking (ELB), Antilock Breaking System (ABS), Traction Control System (TCS), and Drag-Torque Slip Control System *DSCS) remain the hidden heroes behind the bike’s uncanny ability to eat up curves. A small button just off the right grip allows one to switch the ride mode. The Pan America 1250 Special model has seven modes: Road, Sport, Rain, Off-Road, Off-Road Plus, and two that the owner can customize.
Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 Special starts at $19,999.
