Har­ley-David­son’s BIG plan

An ad­ven­ture bike, a street­fighter, LiveWire go­ing into pro­duc­tion and loads more mo­tor­cy­cles an­nounced

Motorcycle Monthly - - News -

Talk about turn­ing your mo­tor­cy­cle world up­side down! Har­ley-David­son has sent the mo­tor­cy­cle es­tab­lish­ment reel­ing with its huge plans for the fu­ture with a raft of new mo­tor­cy­cles rang­ing from 500 to 1250cc.

And top­ping the wow fac­tor has been the ma­chine pic­tured here – the firm’s brand new Pan Amer­ica ad­ven­ture bike.

The Pan Amer­ica is pow­ered by a new wa­ter-cooled mo­tor which is go­ing to form the pow­er­plant for a range of new mo­tor­cy­cles. In the Pan it’s ap­pear­ing as a 1250cc V-twin with a host of elec­tron­ics, ride-by-wire throt­tle and trac­tion con­trol.

Har­ley hasn’t re­leased any specifics in terms of out­put or spec yet, but this thing looks se­ri­ous.

What we can see from the sin­gle photo sent out from the fac­tory is that the bike gets trick Showa sus­pen­sion and hard-bit­ing Brembo brakes.

There’s no men­tion of price yet, but we do know that the bike will be re­leased in 2020 and will be the first bike to ap­pear from what Har­ley-David­son is re­fer­ring to as the ‘mid­dleweight range’.
