Yesterday, Wheeltek’s Harley Davidson of Cavite held an Open House to formally launch the American motorcycle brand’s first adventure bike, the Pan America 1250.
First unvieled in Asia last March at the Bangkok International Motorshow where it won the event’s Best Bike Award, the H-D Pan America is now officially available in the Philippines.
Without the widely accepted ADV front beak, the Pan America’s fresh styling is unique and not a “me too” execution. Claimed weight is 534 lbs or 242 kgs ready to ride which is lighter than same as the class leading BMW R1200GS (268 kgs) and the Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro (254 kgs).
It is powered by a new liquid-cooled 1,252cc V-twin Revolution Max engine that produces 150 horsepower at 9,000rpm and 94 lb-ft of torque at 6,750rpm. It has DOHC and Variable Valve Timing (VVT) andmatched to a six-speed transmission with clutch assist with slipper functions.
It has bespoke Brembo brakes, semi-active front and rear Showa suspension suspension and adaptive load and ride height, adaptive headlights, aluminum swingarm, asymmetrical cast aluminum wheel with 19 inches at the front and 17 inches at the back, Michelin Scorcher Adventure tires and a 6.8-inch TFT touchscreen.
The Pan America’s electronic suite includes five rider modes (Road, Sport, Rain, Off-Road, and Off-Road Plus) which adapt the bike’s power delivery, engine braking, cornering ABS, and cornering traction control to the rider’s immediate needs. Cornering Enhanced Antilock Braking System (C-ABS) and Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System (C-TCS) settings.
Wheeltek’s Sales and Marketing VP Mr. Roscoe Odulio is one of the most excited about the new H-D off road bike having known since 2019 that the product will come, “One of the most anticipated Adventure Bike for 2021!”
The H-D Pan America 1250 starts at P1.4M.
