PAN AMERICA 1250 SPECIAL

PAN AMERICA 1250 SPECIAL

As a premium travel enduro, the Pan America 1250 Special comes with numerous other exclusive features.

The Pan America 1250 Special is characterized by a semi-active chassis that is electronically adjustable at the front and rear. Based on the data stream from the vehicle sensors, this suspension automatically adjusts the damping to the ground conditions and driving activity.

The semi-active chassis components come from Showa, the control software from Harley-Davidson itself. The vehicle loading control system registers the weight of the driver, passenger and luggage and automatically adjusts the spring preload of the rear shock absorber.

• Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

The tire air pressure monitoring system TPMS shows the tire pressures on the color display and warns the driver if the tire pressure is too low. Both handling and tire life benefit from correct tire pressure.

• Center stand

With the main stand, the motorcycle can be parked vertically and requires less parking space than on the side stand - an advantage in narrow garages. At the same time, the rear wheel is raised, making maintenance and changing tires easier at home and on the go.

• Adjustable brake pedal

The brake pedal can be adjusted in two positions without tools and therefore remains optimally accessible even when driving while standing. This riding technique is essential for off-road driving in order to maintain control of the motorcycle in difficult passages and to be able to better see the terrain ahead.

• Protective bar

The protective bars made of tubular steel protect the radiator from damage and also serve as handles to right the motorcycle after a possible fall.

• Light metal engine guard

The robust engine guard protects the crankcase from impacts.

• Daymaker Signature Adaptive Headlight

The state-of-the-art technology of the adaptive Daymaker headlight is based on the inertial sensor technology of the cornering ABS to determine the lean angle and automatically illuminate the area in front of the vehicle into corners and areas that would otherwise be impossible with a conventional LED headlight in corners not be illuminated. This ensures a safe driving experience on dark roads.

o The system includes three additional LED lighting elements per side above the Daymaker main headlight.

o The additional adaptive light sources come into action one after the other from a lean angle of eight, 15 and 23 degrees.

o Instead of simply switching on the additional headlights, the voltage is continuously increased so that the additional lighting is gradually shown to the driver almost seamlessly.

o The system works with low beam and high beam.

• Handle shells and heated handles

Both provide increased comfort in cold weather. The heated grips work in three stages, which can be selected with a button.

• Steering damper

The steering damper helps prevent the handlebars from hitting when the front wheel becomes light when riding hard off-road.

• Optional ex works: Adaptive Ride Height

Harley-Davidson is the first motorcycle manufacturer to offer automatic chassis lowering.

The new technology is reserved for the Pan America 1250 Special and is available as an option. The technology ensures safe contact with the ground when stationary, without affecting the ground and lean angles while driving. The revolutionary system automatically reduces the seat height when stopping and raises it to the optimal position for driving after starting. The system thus allows the driver to comfortably mount the Pan America 1250 Special while standing and always have safe contact with the ground.

The lowering is 25 to 50 millimeters, depending on the automatically adjusted spring preload on the rear wheel. All features of the semi-active chassis are retained in conjunction with Adaptive Ride Height .

The system does not reduce suspension travel. Lean angles, ground clearance and driving comfort also remain unaffected while driving.

Adaptive Ride Height offers four selectable modes:

  • Auto mode: The system automatically determines the speed of lowering based on the braking force in order to fully lower the chassis and thus the seat height in a timely manner when stopping.
  • Short Delay and Long Delay Modes: In these modes, lowering is delayed to keep the seat height up at low speeds, such as when driving slowly in a parking lot.
  • Locked mode: The automatic lowering of the landing gear is deactivated. This mode is intended, for example, for tall drivers who do not need a lowering position when stationary, or for off-road driving at low speeds.

• Optional ex works:

Cross-spoke wheels for tubeless tires
For customers who like to travel off-road, Harley-Davidson offers cross-spoke wheels as a factory option instead of the standard cast-spoke wheels. The stainless steel spokes of these wheels are guided past the tire bead and into the rim. This special design offers further advantages in off-road operations.

o Tubeless tires can be used, which reduces unsprung masses.

o If necessary, defective spokes can be repaired on the go without having to remove the wheel or remove the tire.

o The spoked wheels offer a robust, high-tech design and added off-road flair.

Gauntlet Gray Metallic paint colors as well as two-tone Baja Orange with Stone Washed White Pearl. Further information about the Pan America 1250 and Pan America 1250 Special can be found at www.harley-davidson.com.
