2021 Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 First Ride

See Full Image Gallery >>

The Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 is an excellent adventure touring motorcycle. The fact that it’s the brand’s first real entry into the segment is impressive — no, I didn’t forget the Buell Ulysses, which was neither badged a Harley-Davidson nor a direct competitor to other bikes in the segment — but the Pan America isn’t just good for an opening salvo, it’s just plain good. And the happy story all starts with the bike’s all-new liquid-cooled engine.

Harley’s new 60-degree V-twin engine displaces 1,252cc, features dual overhead camshafts with variable timing, dual spark plugs and a 13.0:1 compression ratio.

The settings I most popular for the observe were: Track Mode with the throttle map set to Street, ABS set to Supermoto, and Wheelie Management on (sure, I suck at wheelies). I suppose the setting that stands out is the Road throttle map. Since a lot of the riders I talked to went for the Sport mapping, I was a little sheepish about my choice until Chris Filmore instructed me that it was his most well-liked setting, too. The choice was made solely on my choice to how the engine responded to throttle inputs mid-nook. Though Sport wasn’t abrupt, I’m a rider who values smoothness, and Road gave me just that little additional finesse.

Electric: Instantaneous torque. No warmth. No vibration … Read More
