All-New Pan America™ 1250 Adventure Motorcycle Is Harley-Davidson’s Explore-It-All Machine


MILWAUKEE (February 22, 2021) – Exploring the world from a motorcycle engages the senses as the landscapes, sights and sounds create a deep, visceral adventure. The all-new Pan America™ 1250 adventure motorcycle is Harley-Davidson’s explore-it-all machine for those who are driven to push boundaries and don’t want to be confined by the limits of roads. Adventure touring riders seek out new experiences in any direction, on any terrain, to explore the undiscovered, sleep under the stars and immerse themselves in the journey. The Pan America was built for these explorers, to go further, until they find themselves in places few have traveled.

“I’ve put in many miles aboard Pan America, in beautiful and remote parts of the world and have experienced the innovations and capabilities that will unlock our brand’s passion for adventure for more people around the world,” said Jochen Zeitz, chairman, president and CEO Harley-Davidson. “I am truly excited about Pan America. Adventure touring is a natural fit for Harley-Davidson.”

The spirt of Adventure Touring on a Pan America™ 1250 is one of endless possibilities and unrestrained freedom for the soul. From highways to dirt paths, from mountain tops to river valleys, the thirst for adventure spurs riders forward to discover what lays beyond the next bend in the trail. This tenacious spirit has driven Harley-Davidson to develop a motorcycle that will win the hearts of bold, adventurous individuals who seek out the wild spaces. Individuals like actor Jason Momoa, who after an early test ride of Pan America, jumped at the opportunity to partner with Harley-Davidson on the launch. Momoa, a passionate motorcycle enthusiast is the perfect partner to help bring the Pan America to the world and showcase the technological advancements that Harley-Davidson is bringing to the segment. 

“Pan America is the machine that will allow me to extend my passion for Harley-Davidson to the ends of the earth and I am absolutely stoked to be a part of it,” said Momoa. “It’s the best Adventure Touring bike I have ridden, and I know other adventurers like me who are consumed by wanderlust will love it.”

Whether its camping on a mountain side or traversing a dry lakebed, the Pan America™ 1250 motorcycle is equipped with advanced technologies designed to embrace adventurous spirit. Adapting to varied terrain and riding styles easy with multiple electronically controlled ride modes that tailor the performance characteristics of the motorcycle to deliver confidence in a wide variety of riding conditions.

The Pan America motorcycle introduces a revolution in accessibility and performance with Adaptive Ride Height technology. This industry-first motorcycle suspension system automatically transitions between a riding position when stopped to an optimal ride height when the motorcycle is in motion. The lowered suspension at rest makes the motorcycle easier to mount and dismount, without sacrificing lean angles or ground clearance.

The Pan America motorcycle is also powered by the all-new Revolution Max 1250 engine. The latest in the legendary powertrain lineage of the Harley-Davidson Motor Company, is a liquid-cooled 1,250cc-displacement V-Twin finely styled as the visual centerpiece of the motorcycle. The Revolution Max 1250 is designed to offer smooth, low-end torque delivery and low speed throttle control that is ideal for off-road riding.

From the Arctic Circle to the base of Mount Kilimanjaro, the Harley-Davidson Pan America motorcycle is designed to explore, built to endure, and engineered for endless adventure, learn more at h-d.com/PanAmerica.
