After years of anticipation, riders will soon be able to experience Harley-Davidson’s Pan America 1250 and 1250 Special firsthand with an official motorcycle demo tour at locations across the country.
The tour kicks off in April, and signups for H-D-hosted demos are now available here: PAN AMERICA DEMO REGISTRATION. Demo opportunities at other major adventure touring, overland events and rallies, signups will happen on location.
“I’ve had the opportunity to ride a Pan America motorcycle both on and off-road, and can’t wait for riders to experience the innovations and capabilities that our team has built into this fantastic adventure touring bike,” said Jochen Zeitz, chairman, president and CEO of Harley-Davidson. “Now riders can experience for themselves the first motorcycle of its kind to be designed and developed from the ground up in America.”
The Pan America motorcycle introduces Adaptive Ride Height, an industry-first motorcycle suspension system available on the Pan America 1250 Special that automatically transitions between a riding position when stopped, to an optimal ride height when the motorcycle is in motion.
Powered by the Revolution Max 1250 engine, the clean sheet design produces a reported 150hp and is the latest in the legendary powertrain lineage of the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. The Revolution Max 1250 is designed to offer smooth, low-end torque delivery and low speed throttle control that is optimized for off-road riding.
The Harley-Davidson Pan America Motorcycle Demo Tour will include stops at adventure touring and overland events and rallies as well as H-D-hosted demo experiences. The Demo Tour starts off in Texas on April 16, 2021.
