About the Pan America™ 1250
The Pan America™ 1250 is the newest motorcycle in the Harley-Davidson® lineup. In fact, the 2021 model was the inaugural edition and first appeared in showrooms in February. For those unfamiliar, adventure bikes are motorcycles designed to strike a balance between on-road and off-road performance. Adventure motorcycles are not new. They have been around for many decades, but we are seeing a resurgence, and that has a lot to do with new tech that helps achieve that aforementioned balance.
This is the first adventure bike that Harley-Davidson® has ever designed, but when you think about, it really makes a lot of sense. Touring motorcycles are synonymous with the brand, and adventurer bikes are essentially touring machines that can tour off-road as well. Harley-Davidson® even markets the bike as such when it mentions that this is the ride for enthusiasts who see touring as detouring. Despite being a first effort, the Pan America™ 1250 was a great success. It received high praise even from outside Harley-Davidson® circles and had well exceeded sales estimates by August of the initial year.
About the 2022 Pan America™ 1250
Moving into the adventure bike space was a bold decision. While the company certainly made this move based on extensive research and mountains of data, there had to be some uncertainty about whether the investment would pay off. Now that it clearly has paid off, it will be interesting to see how Harley-Davidson® proceeds with the marketing and the new products it makes available.
The 2022 Harley-Davidson® Pan America™ 1250 in Tampa is the previous model carried forward essentially unchanged. One difference is that Vivid Black is the only color available this year. With the previous model, River Rock Gray was also offered, but we suspect that it was not very popular. The biggest updates will be all the new products that will available this year. Some are already available. More are on the way. Adventure bikes cater to a diverse group, and Harley-Davidson® is committed to extensive personalization, such as seating, saddlebags, tour packs, handlebars, windshields and so forth.
Characteristics and Performance
The 2022 Harley-Davidson® Pan America™ 1250 in Tampa offers an upright riding position and passenger seat as you would expect from a tourer. It has a frame-mounted fairing, and as mentioned, you already have the option for saddlebags, tour packs and the like. Characteristics that favor the off-road riding include the taller profile and the mid-mount foot controls. Another notable feature of the Pan America™ are the ride modes. There are five preset modes—Sport, Road, Rain, Off-Road and Off-Road Plus—in addition to a mode that you can customize to your preferences. These modes are invaluable to delivering that seamless transition between the various surfaces that you may ride on.
This Is the Right Bike For
The 2022 Harley-Davidson® Pan America™ 1250 is an amazing option for any rider who wants comfort and versatility both on-road and off. We love the slogan about this being a motorcycle for enthusiasts who see touring as detouring, but it is a great option even for those who will not ride long distances. You can run errands around town, take it up into the twisties and then hit the fields before returning home.
