Pan America: The First Harley Davison Adventure Touring Bike

A new 60-degree engine, for starters, displacing 1,250cc and evidently using liquid-cooling and dual overhead cams. The Pan America will share the powerplant with the low-slung 1250 Custom, which means we can expect the 1,250 engine to have a familiar feel to Harley's big twins; heavy flywheel, lots of torque. That said, it would be a wise guess to assume some amount of extra counterbalancing inside the engine, considering these powerplants will likely be mounted more rigidly to the frames of these new bikes. The muffler appears huge, despite a pretty obvious exhaust collector in front of the rear wheel. Knobby tires are likely to be available but, like many ADVs, street tires will probably be stock.

Even the sketches of Pan America show the dichotomy that Harley-Davidson is reaching for—clearly rough-and-tumble, but also low-slung and quintessentially Harley. Departing from the dual headlights seen here that look suspiciously like a Buell Ulysses was probably the right call. - Harley-Davidson

There will always be somebody to forgo their spare change.

The multistrada pikespeak used is going above 50k.
