Available in two variants – Standard and Special – the Harley Davidson Pan America 1250 starts at Rs 16.90 lakh. Harley Davidson has already commenced bookings of the motorcycles and deliveries are expected to commence in June
Harley Davidson may have officially shut its India operations last year, but it seems that India continues to be an important market for the brand. Just two months after the global unveiling, Harley Davidson has announced the pricing of the Pan America 1250. The American bike maker’s first-ever adventure tourer is now on sale in two variants – Standard and Special – priced at Rs 16.90 lakh and Rs 19.99 lakh.
Powering the Pan America is Harley’s 1,252cc Revolution Max V-twin motor that develops 150 horses and 128Nm. The engine comes paired with a 6-speed transmission. Suspension duties are performed by 47mm upside down forks at the front and a monoshock setup at the rear. The Special variant of the Pan America also gets the advantage of a semi-active suspension with an optional adaptive ride height. The adventure tourer also features 5 pre-programmed riding modes – sport, road, rain, off-road and off-road plus in addition to a custom mode. Cornering ABS and cornering traction control come as standard too.
Additionally, the Pan America 1250 Special also comes with a tyre pressure monitoring system, tubeless laced wheels, an aluminium skid plate, knuckle guards, and more. While full-LED lighting comes as standard across all variants, the Special comes fitted with the Daymaker Signature Adaptive Headlamp. Both variants of the Pan America 1250 come equipped with a 6.8-inch touchscreen colour display with Bluetooth connectivity. Aside from all the basic information, this display also allows phone pairing, music controls, navigation and more.
The Harley Davidson Pan America 1250 competes against the BMW R 1250 GS. The latter is currently priced at Rs 20.45 lakh for the Pro variant and Rs 22.35 lakh for the GS Adventure. While the BMW is the only competitor to the Pan America 1250 currently, Ducati is expected to bring in the Multistrada V4 later this year.
