Harley-Davidson released their first adventure touring motorcycle, the Pan America, on February 22, 2021, via a scheduled YouTube video release. The video was a short documentary of sorts highlighting the history of Harley-Davidson. It then moved into the Pan America reveal but lacked overall information on what most riders want to know.
So, in this podcast episode, we tell you what you actually want to know about the Harley Pan America and how it stands up to the competition in the current adventure-touring market, such as the BMW R 1250 GS Adventure, to name just one competitor. The Pan America has more horsepower, while the GS 1250 has more torque. But, both motorcycles are definitely comparable and have many options and comforts.
There are two models to choose from, the Pan America 1250 and Pan America 1250 special. The special model comes with additional standard equipment and some factory install options that you'll pay for at the time of purchase.
Admittedly, I was a bit concerned that Harley-Davidson would release a sub-standard adventure bike that would be overpriced for the market, especially after we saw the release of the Livewire, their first electric motorcycle. However, I was pleasantly surprised and I can say that the Harley Pan America is definitely a competitor now in the adventure touring market, both in regards to equipment and price.
Make sure to listen in to get all the details of the new Pan America and our overall thoughts and opinions.
