Harley Davidson has just had a new boss taken over after the previous CEO was fired earlier this year. As when all new bosses come in they have different ideas about how the company should operate.

The market release of the Pan America was scheduled for August 2020 but this has been moved out to February or March 2021. Most manufacturers announce their new models late in the year at the various international motorcycle shows like the EICMA show in Italy, however this is at the end of the US summer riding season.
To try and capitalise on sales the launch is being shifted to the beginning of the new riding season in the US, Harley’s local and biggest market.
