FEATURES AND BENEFITS WHEN NEW
The Harley-Davidson® Pan America 1250 model is a rugged, powerful, technologically advanced multi-purpose motorcycle designed for riders ready to embrace real-life adventure. The riding experience is capable and intuitive, on a motorcycle that stays composed and confident wherever your adventure takes you.
A focus on performance and minimizing weight drove both vehicle and engine architecture, material choices, and aggressive component design optimization, all with the goal of achieving a desirable power-to-weight ratio. The powertrain is a stressed member of the chassis, eliminating the traditional frame. Three distinct elements – the front frame, the mid frame and the tail section – bolt directly to the powertrain. This design reduces motorcycle weight and results in a stiff chassis that contributes to precise handling. The cast-aluminum swingarm minimizes unsprung weight. The chassis is designed with a 62.2-inch wheelbase, ideal for touring capability (especially with a passenger and loaded luggage) and agile handling required for off-road maneuverability.
Cast aluminum wheels (19-inch front and a 17-inch rear) are designed to be strong, yet light weight, intended for use on paved roads and un-paved surfaces, such as gravel roads and fire roads. Harley-Davidson and Michelin collaboratively designed a Scorcher Adventure tire for the Pan America models to meet the demands associated with adventure touring. Michelin Anakee Wild tires with an aggressive “knobby” tread pattern will be offered through Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories for riders seeking maximum off-road traction and a bold style profile.
Harley-Davidson and Brembo collaborated on an all-new braking system for the Pan America™ models that is designed to provide the rider with outstanding braking feel and performance. A new radial monoblock four-piston (30 mm) caliper takes full advantage of the material characteristics to increase stiffness while reducing overall weight. Dual front brake rotors are 320mm in diameter; single rear-brake rotor is 280mm diameter. A new lightweight front brake master cylinder offers adjustable lever response.
The Pan America 1250 model features premium passive front and rear suspension that is fully adjustable for pre-load and compression/rebound damping. Suspension travel front and rear is 7.48 inches (190mm). Front suspension is provided by a SHOWA® 1 by 1 47mm inverted cartridge fork. Rear suspension is a SHOWA® Piggyback reservoir shock with adjustable hydraulic preload. The rear suspension incorporates a linkage system which provides a progressive feel through the stroke and maintains a comfortable, compliant ride on-road, while providing superior support for off-road conditions.
All instrumentation and infotainment functions are displayed on a tilting 6.8-inch TFT touchscreen (thin-film-transistor, a type of liquid-crystal display noted for high image quality and contrast). Its non-reflective glass cover makes it easier to view in most lighting conditions. The touchscreen function is disabled when the motorcycle is in motion, but the rider can use hand controls to manage many functions of the screen display when the motorcycle is moving. The display supports infotainment generated by the rider’s Bluetooth-equipped mobile device, including music and calls. Navigation is supplied by the free Harley-Davidson® App for iOS or Android.
Cornering Rider Safety Enhancements
The Pan America 1250 model is equipped with Cornering Rider Safety Enhancements, a collection of technologies designed enhance rider confidence during unexpected situations or poor road conditions. The systems are electronic and utilize the latest chassis control, electronic brake control and powertrain technology. Cornering enhanced technology utilizes an inertial measurement unit, IMU, for optimal intervention when the motorcycle is leaned compared to when the motorcycle is upright. Elements of Cornering Rider Safety Enhancements for the Pan America 1250 model include: Cornering Enhanced Electronically Linked Braking, Cornering Enhanced Antilock Braking System, Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System, Cornering Enhanced Drag-Torque Slip Control System, and Hill Hold Control.
Selectable Ride Modes electronically control the performance characteristics of the motorcycle, and the level of technology intervention. Five modes are available on the base model (4 are pre-programmed and one can be customized). The Pan America™ 1250 Special model has two additional modes that can be customized by the owner. Pre-programed ride modes for the Pan America 1250 models include Road, Sport, Rain, Off-Road and Off-Road Plus. Each Ride Mode consists of a specific combination of power delivery, engine braking, Cornering Enhanced Antilock Braking System (C-ABS) and Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System (C-TCS) settings. The rider may use the MODE button on the right-hand controller to change the active ride mode while riding the motorcycle or when stopped, with some exceptions.
TECHNOLOGY ENHANCES THE HARLEY-DAVIDSON ADVENTURE TOURING EXPERIENCE
Pan America 1250 Special Introduces Adaptive Ride Height and Semi-Active Suspension
The Harley-Davidson® Pan America 1250 and Pan America 1250 Special models are all-new adventure touring motorcycles. Harley-Davidson has applied its deep engineering capabilities to equip these motorcycles with advanced technologies designed to enhance the riding experience.
The Pan America 1250 Special model is equipped with electronically adjustable semi-active front and rear suspension. Utilizing data provided by sensors on the motorcycle, this suspension system automatically controls damping to suit the prevailing conditions and riding activity. These suspension components are provided by SHOWA®, while the control software was developed by Harley-Davidson.
Adaptive Ride Height (ARH) is an option for the Pan America 1250 Special model only. Harley-Davidson is the first to offer this technology in the motorcycle industry. This evolutionary suspension system automatically transitions the motorcycle between a low stopped position and optimal ride height when the motorcycle is in motion. The system allows the rider to mount the Pan America 1250 Special model with ease, and to confidently put feet down to the ground at a stop, by lowering the seat height 1 to 2 inches (depending on automatically selected rear pre-load, which determines ride height when the bike is moving).
This system does not compromise suspension travel – travel is maintained – and does not compromise lean angle, ground clearance or ride quality.
There are four selectable Adaptive Ride Height sub-modes:
Cornering Rider Safety Enhancements
The Pan America 1250 and Pan America 1250 Special models are equipped with a collection of technologies designed to match motorcycle performance to available traction* during acceleration, deceleration and braking. The systems are designed to aid the rider in controlling the motorcycle while accelerating and braking in a straight line or while in a turn. A rider may find the systems most helpful when riding in adverse road conditions or in unexpected situations. The systems are electronic and utilize the latest chassis control, electronic brake control and powertrain technology.
*Disclaimer: Available traction is determined by the road/tire interface. The systems are only able to adjust brake pressure or powertrain torque in an attempt to keep the forces at the tire from exceeding available grip. These technologies do not have the ability to increase grip, to intervene when the rider has not made a brake or throttle application, or to directly influence vehicle direction. This is a key difference between motorcycle systems and automotive stability control. The rider is ultimately responsible for steering, speed and path corrections.
Some elements of Cornering Rider Safety Enhancements may be “cornering enhanced” with technology that is motorcycle-specific. An inertial measurement unit, or IMU, measures and reports the motorcycle lean angle as it navigates a turn. Because many motorcycles have different size front and rear tires, when the motorcycle leans into a turn the wheels begin to rotate at slightly different speeds. The tire traction patch – the part of the tire actually touching the pavement – also changes as the motorcycle leans in a turn. Cornering enhanced technology takes this into account and, for optimal performance, intervenes differently when the motorcycle is leaned compared to when the motorcycle is upright.
The rider can deactivate C-TCS in any Ride Mode when the motorcycle is stopped and the engine is running. Changing to Rain Mode will automatically re-enable C-TCS, but C-TCS may be disabled again after Rain Mode has been selected. C-TCS can be reactivated with the push of a button on the right hand control when the motorcycle is stopped or underway.
TCS is also designed to support Front-Wheel Lift Mitigation (FLM) to reduce the height and duration of front-wheel lift (wheelie). The height and duration of front-wheel lift is tied to the rider-selected Ride Mode, with Rain Mode being the most-restrictive and Sport/Off Road being the least-restrictive of the standard modes. Turning off C-TCS fully disables both C-TCS and FLM.
In the Off-Road Plus or Custom Off-Road Plus Ride Mode (see Ride Mode section) TCS is enabled without any cornering adjustments, allowing the rider to take advantage of ruts, banking, and berms to better accelerate at lean. In Off-Road Plus mode TCS will allow a greater amount of rear-wheel slip appropriate for off-road use only and fully disables FLM so that an experienced rider may use throttle to lift the front wheel to clear obstacles.
The rider activates HHC by momentarily applying extra pressure to either the front-brake hand lever or the rear-brake foot control after the motorcycle has come to a complete stop. If rider brakes very hard to a stop, and holds the brake pressure after stopped, HHC may also set without any added squeeze. A HHC indicator light will illuminate to confirm that the rider has activated HHC, and the ABS system will hold brake pressure after the rider releases the brake control. The indicator light will blink if the rider attempts to engage HHC but that action is not available – for example if the side-stand is down on models equipped with a side stand sensor. HHC is disengaged automatically as the rider begins to pull away from a stop, or if the rider applies and releases either brake control.
HHC is not to be used as a parking brake. It will also disengage if the rider lowers the side stand (on models with a side-stand sensor, not a feature in all markets) or shifts into neutral on models without a side-stand sensor, or if the engine is turned off. In most situations after ten seconds the indicator light will flash and the HHC will release if there is no rider action. HHC is not intended as a substitute for a parking brake in any situation. The rider may use the instrument display to disable (or re-activate) HHC if they desire.
In the U.S. market only, the Pan America 1250 Special model is equipped with a side stand sensor interlock, which permits HHC to be engaged in neutral; this feature is not present on the Pan America 1250 model. In all markets that require a side stand sensor interlock (which is not the case in the U.S.) this feature is present on both models.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
Selectable ride modes electronically control the performance characteristics of the motorcycle, and the level of technology intervention. Five modes are available on the base model (4 are pre-programmed and one can be customized). The Pan America 1250 Special model has two additional modes that can be customized by the owner. Pre-programed ride modes for the Pan America 1250 models include Road, Sport, Rain, Off-Road and Off-Road Plus. Each ride mode consists of a specific combination of power delivery, engine braking, Cornering Enhanced Antilock Braking System (C-ABS) and Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System (C-TCS) settings. The rider may use the MODE button on the right-hand controller to change the active ride mode while riding the motorcycle or when stopped, with some exceptions. The ride mode may also adjust Semi-Active Suspension settings on the Pan America 1250 Special model.
The rider may use the MODE button on the right-hand controller to change the active ride mode while riding the motorcycle or when stopped, with some exceptions. A unique icon for each mode appears on the instrument display when that mode has been selected.
With the exception of the Road Mode, the rider may disable ride modes through the settings menu on the instrument display. The Custom Ride Mode(s) need to be enabled by the rider through this settings menu before they can be to be selected with the MODE button during operation.
Sport Mode: Sport Mode maximizes the rider connection to the motorcycle for a direct and visceral performance riding experience. The rider will experience the full performance potential of the motorcycle in a direct and precise manner, with full power and the quickest throttle response. C-TCS is set to its lowest level of intervention appropriate for on-road use, and engine braking is increased. On the Pan America 1250 Special model, Sport Mode will also increase the rate of suspension damping for enhanced feedback to the rider at higher speeds.
▪ Road Mode: Intended for daily use, Road Mode delivers balanced performance. This mode offers less-aggressive throttle response and less mid-range engine power than Sport Mode, with a higher level of C-ABS and C-TCS intervention. On the Pan America 1250 Special model Road Mode selects a suspension damping setting that delivers a softer ride then Sport Mode.
▪Rain Mode: This mode is designed for riding in the rain or when traction is otherwise limited. The Rain Mode is also an appropriate setting for riders as they become familiar with the motorcycle. Throttle response and power output are programmed to significantly restrain the rate of acceleration, engine braking is limited, and the highest levels of C-ABS and C-TCS intervention are selected. On the Pan America 1250 Special model Rain Mode will also adjust suspension damping to a compliant comfort setting.
▪ Off-Road Mode: This mode is designed for unpaved roads and moderate off-road situations. The motorcycle delivers a mid-range level of power, and the torque curve is tailored for use in an off-road environment – there is less peak torque and horsepower at the upper end of the rpm range. In Off-Road Mode C-ABS is active on both wheels, with interventions designed specifically for loose, unpaved surfaces. The C-TCS intervention is set at the same level as Sport Mode. On the Pan America 1250 Special model Off-Road Mode adjusts suspension damping to an off-road setting for enhanced control over uneven surfaces.
▪ Off-Road Plus Mode:** This mode is intended for use by experienced riders in the most-challenging off-road situations, ideally with the motorcycle equipped with Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories off-road tires. The intent is to give the rider the ability to use braking and engine power to control the motorcycle over a loose surface or larger obstacles; for example to use the rear brake to lock the rear wheel in a controlled slide, or to use engine power to lift the front wheel to better clear an obstacle. Engine performance is the same as Off-Road mode. ABS function on the rear wheel is disabled, the linked braking function is disabled, and the Drag Torque Slip Control (DSCS) is disabled. The TCS is set to provide the least intervention available. Front wheel lift mitigation and rear wheel lift mitigation is also disabled. The cornering enhancement to TCS and front wheel ABS are disabled, meaning these systems will be at their consistent level of intervention regardless of motorcycle lean angle. On the Pan America 1250 Special model the Off-Road Plus Mode will adjust the suspension to have less initial damping for increased compliance over larger suspension inputs – bumps on the trail, obstacles or landing after leaving the surface.
Note: To select Off-Road Plus Mode the motorcycle must be in Off-Road Mode and stationary with the engine running. Pushing and holding the Mode button will then select the Off-Road Plus Mode. The rider may exit Off-Road Plus Mode by pushing the Mode button at any time. The mode will change back to Off-Road Mode, and the rider may then use the Mode button to change to any other Ride Mode setting.
** The Pan America motorcycle was designed for on-road and moderate off-road use (which entails use on paved and gravel roads or groomed trails, but does not include competition courses, rally routes, or similar use.
Custom Mode: A Custom Mode allows the rider to create a set of performance characteristics to meet personal preference or for special situations, such as a track day. To create a Custom Mode the rider may select their combined preference of engine torque delivery characteristics, engine braking, throttle response, C-TCS and C-ABS intervention, and suspension damping levels (Pan America 1250 Special model only), within specific ranges. On Pan America 1250 Special motorcycles equipped with optional Adaptive Ride Height (ARH) the rider can adjust the timing of, or turn off, the lowering function. The rider can create one Custom Mode for the Pan America 1250 model and up to three different Custom Modes (Custom A, Custom B and Custom Off-Road) for the Pan America 1250 Special model. (see chart below for Custom Mode options)
Note: To select Custom Off-Road Plus Mode the motorcycle must be in Custom Off-Road Mode and stationary with the engine running. Pushing and holding the Mode button will then select the Custom Off-Road Plus Mode. The rider may exit Custom Off-Road Plus Mode by pushing the Mode button at any time. The mode will change back to Custom Off-Road Mode, and the rider may then use the Mode button to change to any other Ride Mode setting.
The Pan America 1250 and Pan America 1250 Special models feature a 6.8-inch TFT touchscreen (thin-film-transistor, a type of liquid-crystal display noted for high image quality and contrast) that displays all instrumentation and infotainment functions.
Base Screen display:
Widgets: The rider can customize the basic display by adding “widgets” of additional information while keeping the speedometer and tachometer central to the display.
Bike Status Screen
The rider can select this display option to put bike status information in a predominate position on the screen, with a smaller speedometer on the upper screen. Status information includes front and rear tire air pressure, engine temperature and oil pressure, battery voltage, and diagnostic codes.
The screen display on the Pan America 1250 and Pan America 1250 Special models supports infotainment generated by the rider’s Bluetooth-equipped mobile device. The motorcycle does not have an on-board infotainment system, and it is not equipped with speakers. Most infotainment functions also require a Bluetooth headset and speakers worn within the helmet.
Navigation is supplied by the free Harley-Davidson® App for iOS or Android, which must be downloaded into the rider’s mobile device. When navigation is enabled, the rider may select a moving map display or turn-by-turn map, either of which are displayed on the screen, assisted by audio instructions through the headset.

The grips remain at a constant temperature regardless of changes in outside temperature, and the left and right grips are each thermostatically and independently controlled for even heat output. Switched on/off with the ignition to avoid draining the motorcycle battery. Available only for the Pan America 1250 Special model.
Tank Knee Pads: These self-adhesive black rubber pads feature tapered raised ridges that complement the styling of the Pan America model seat, and add traction and comfort for extra grip. The two-piece kit offers protection for surfaces where rider legs and riding gear contact the tank.
** The Pan America motorcycle was designed for on-road and moderate off-road use (which entails use on paved and gravel roads or groomed trails, but does not include competition courses, rally routes, or similar use).

The paragraph descriptions and specifications for new motorcycles are provided by the factory and web company. Sometimes they discuss various options available for the given model and don’t necessarily match the exact bike we are presenting. Be sure and ask your salesperson about details like engine size, security, ABS, etc. Also, there are over 30,000 prices and loads of specifications on this website, we do not warrant that is entirely error free.
