Best known for their sportsters and choppers, Harley-Davidson has long been synonymous with biker culture. But that culture has been changing rapidly over the last few years, causing the brand to have to make some drastic changes to stay relevant. And that bodes very well for new, more youthful riders that have a taste for sightseeing, as it means the brand will release their first ever touring adventure bike, the Pan America 1250.
As you might have guessed, the 1250 is in reference to the bike’s displacement of 1250cc – promising a good bit of power for the heftier bike style, a necessary requirement for long-distance overlanding. Which is exactly what the brand was intending with this bike – a faithful steed to take riders all around the world both on- and off-road. Set to be released in 2020, this exploration-focused motorcycle is a big step in the right direction for Harley-Davidson and gets us excited about what the future might have to offer.
