Harley Davidson Pan America 1250 and 1250 Special motorcycles have been launched in India. The Harley Davidson Pan America 1250 is available from Rs. 16.90 lakh, while the Pan America 1250 Special is available from Rs. 19.99 lakh.
The Standard and the Special are the two variants that the company has launched in the Indian market. The standard variant is typically road-based, while the special variant is more for the off-road setup as it comes with electronically adjustable suspension, spoked wheels, etc.
The Pan America 1250 comes with a tall windscreen, all-around LED lighting with DRLs, an up-swept exhaust, well-cushioned wide seats, wide and raised handlebar, along with a long-range fuel tank having 21.2-litre capacity.
Harley Davidson Pan America 1250 and 1250 Special comes with a liquid-cooled, V-twin-cylinder 1250cc engine that has 149bhp maximum power at 9000rpm and 127Nm peak torque at 6750rpm. The engine comes paired with a 6-speed transmission which has an assist and slip clutch.
Both the variants of the motorcycle have a 6.8-inch TFT display. The motorcycles also have a touchscreen instrument cluster that disables as soon as the vehicle is in motion. The rider can view the odometer, gear, fuel level, clock, trip, low temp alert, TIP over alert, side stand down alert, cruise, range and tachometer indication on the instrument cluster.
The company also offers bluetooth capability, with which the rider can access phone calls, music and navigation using the mobile phone application. The smartphone charger of the motorcycle is a USB Type-C.
Harley Davidson has offered the Pan America motorcycle in five riding modes: Rain, Road, Sport, Off-road, and customisable riding mode. The Special variant has seven riding modes with two additional ride modes as the Off-road Plus and a customisable Off-road Plus mode. The riding modes also adjust the semi-active suspension on the Pan America Special variant.
Additional rider electronics include a standard hill hold, lean-sensitive ABS, traction control, linked braking, and torque slip control. Handguards with integrated turn signals, an adjustable windscreen, a beefy aluminium skid plate, and engine crash bars are the additional features of the Pan America Special. It also gets lowered automatically by 50mm when halted due to its electronic adjustability feature.
Both the motorcycle variants have a 47mm inverted fork at the front and a mono-shock setup at the rear that handles the suspension duties. The rider can also adjust both the units for compression, rebound and spring preload. The motorcycle has 320mm dual-disc brakes with radially mounted, monoblock, 4-piston calliper at the front and a single 280mm with floating, single-piston calliper at the rear. The company also offers hard and soft luggage options, new exhaust, top box, panniers and tank bag for both variants.
The Pan America 1250 faces competition from the likes of the Triumph Tiger 900, Honda Africa Twin and the BMW R 1250 GS in India.
