Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250: Details Explained

Harley-Davidson has unveiled its new adventure tourer motorcycle, the Pan America 1250. The motorcycle is expected to reach the Indian market, although the company is yet to make an announcement. While we await those details, here we explain the new model in detail.


The adventure tourer from the American two-wheeler brand packs a rugged design. The front features a modern headlight design along with a tall windscreen. The rugged looks are further enhanced by knuckle guards and a skid plate. Other styling cues include a muscular fuel tank with plastic cladding on the top, split-style seats, and a side-slung exhaust. The motorcycle gets alloy wheels as standard while wire-spoke units will be available as an optional extra.

Everything went fine this time! Well, everything went sort of fine. A long trip on a short-range EV motorcycle is still kind of a pain in the ass, and the charging infrastructure could still use some work, but thankfully progress is being made. Just the difference between

No, Harley-Davidson isn’t killing off the LiveWire electric motorcycle

Harley-Davidson recently updated the Future Vehicles section of its website, removing some previously featured models. One of those models was an electric motorcycle, prompting speculation that the motorcycle manufacturer might be calling it quits on electric vehicles.

The move was first reported on Motorcycle.com before the speculation was picked up elsewhere.

I reached out to Harley-Davidson directly to inquire about the company’s plans for its lightweight electric vehicle concept (seen above) that was removed from the Future Vehicles section of the website, as well as to hopefully receive more information about the fate of the LiveWire electric motorcycle. Below is the response I received:

As part of The Rewire, Harley-Davidson is no longer commenting on future products prior to their formal introduction. Harley-Davidson is committed to lead the electrification of motorcycles. As pioneers in the space, we are proud of the accomplishments of LiveWire to date, including achieving the
