Harley Davidson have announced they will have an official Adventure Bike in their range in 2020.
Named the Pan America, this new model from The Motor Company the bike will be powered by a new 1250cc 60 degree V-Twin with integrated transmission, tubeless spoke wheels, Brembo brakes, led lights all round including hand guards with integrated turn signals, engine guards and a skid plate, and the requisite high exhaust.
No details on weight, power, torque are available and the images Harley have released so far are of the prototype so the final version may look different.
A 975cc version of the Pan America is also expected in 2021 using a variation of this new engine that will first appear next year in a new road HD model.
There’s 13 seconds of teaser footage in this video released by Harley Davidson about there upcoming models and direction.
I think this will sell, particularly in the US.
HD has probably the best brand loyalty of any motorcycle brand so some will buy it just because it’s HD and if you categorise it alongside bikes like the V-strom 1000 and similiar bikes and HD can keep the weight down to V Strom levels it’s probably a good market fit. A low hp high torque engine is perfect for adventure touring.
