The 2021 Harley Davidson Pan America 1250: The New Adventure

The wait is over! The first American-made Adventure bike is here, the Harley Davidson Pan America 1250. HD is trying to come into a market segment that has some serious heavyweights. Both the 1250 and 1250 Special have the specs that should make them definite contenders.

This is the first use of the new Revolution® Max 1250 Engine in the 2021 Harley Davidson lineup, a liquid-cooled V-Twin designed to offer flexible, engaging performance with a broad powerband that builds to a rush of high-RPM power. Making 150 HP and 94 ft. lbs of torque, this engine spins up to 9500 RPM. The 60o V-Twin has an optimized design for lightweight and is a structural component of the motorcycle chassis, a front frame element, mid-frame element, and the tail section bolt directly to the powertrain.

The Pan America 1250 and Pan America 1250 Special models are equipped with a collection of technologies designed to match motorcycle performance to available traction during acceleration, deceleration, and braking. The systems are designed to aid the rider in controlling the motorcycle while accelerating and braking in a straight line or while in a turn.

  • Cornering Enhanced Electronically Linked Braking (C-ELB)
  • Cornering Enhanced Antilock Braking System (C-ABS)
  • Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System (C-TCS)
  • Cornering Enhanced Drag-Torque Slip Control System (C-DSCS)
  • Hill Hold Control (HHC)
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

5 Pre-programed ride modes (4 are pre-programmed and one can be customized) for the Pan America 1250 models include Road, Sport, Rain, Off-Road, and Off-Road Plus. The Pan America™ 1250 Special model has two additional modes that can be customized by the owner, each ride mode consists of a specific combination of power delivery, engine braking, Cornering Enhanced Antilock Braking System (C-ABS), and Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System (C-TCS) settings.

2021 Harley Davidson Pan America 1250 Features

For A New Generation of Iconic Bikes

The next chapter in a century of legendary V-Twins is here. Revolution® Max is a liquid-cooled powertrain with 150 horsepower, full of ample torque, and a surging powerband tuned to maximize rider control.

Dual Purpose Powertrain

The Revolution®Max 1250 is a structural component of the motorcycle chassis, eliminating a traditional frame — which significantly reduces overall weight and keeps handling taut. This is performance you can feel, with the center of gravity low and the chassis super rigid.

Peak Performance Where It Counts

Double Overhead Camshafts (DOHC) facilitate higher peak horsepower, and independent Variable Valve Timing (VVT) broadens the overall powerband and improves torque management. All this to say you’ll have as much low-end acceleration off the line and high-RPM horsepower you can twist.

Revolutionary Suspension

Adaptive Ride Height makes its debut on the Pan America 1250 Special. This factory-installed option unlocks confidence you can feel by lowering seat height when stopped, and maintaining a constant, optimum suspension sag at speed by adjusting preload while continuously sensing weight inputs.

Semi-Active Front & Rear Suspension

190mm (7.48 inches) travel on Showa® BFF™ (Balance Free Forks) fronts and a BFRC™ (Balanced Free Rear Cushion-lite) coil-over rear shock with electronic preload control and semi-active damping. The rear suspension incorporates a linkage system connecting the shock, swingarm, and frame which provides a progressive feel through the stroke.

Different by Design

H-D design and engineering teams have crafted a vision guided by utility, rooted in the spirit of iconic American off-road vehicles. In a landscape of bikes that are achieving uniformity, Pan America is a rugged take where function feeds form in a package that is uniquely Harley-Davidson.
