Harley-Davidson’s BIG plan
An adventure bike, a streetfighter, LiveWire going into production and loads more motorcycles announced
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’.
