Features

Adaptive Lighting

  • ADVANCED DAYMAKER ADAPTIVE HEADLAMP: Utilizing the ABS IMU to determine the lean angle of the motorcycle, this system automatically projects additional light into corners to illuminate areas of the road that may be unlit by an LED headlamp without this tech. Includes three LED elements per side, located just above the main Daymaker headlamp. The adaptive lamps illuminated in sequence based on motorcycle lean angle: at 8, 15, and 23 degrees. Rather than just switching on and off, the current to the adaptive elements ramps up gradually so the additional lighting is progressive and appears seamless.

Adaptive Ride Height

  • REVOLUTIONARY SUSPENSION: Adaptive Ride Height makes its debut on the Pan America 1250 Special. This factory-installed option unlocks confidence you can feel by lowering seat height when stopped, and maintaining a constant, optimum suspension sag at speed by adjusting preload while continuously sensing weight inputs.
  • SEMI-ACTIVE FRONT & REAR SUSPENSION: 190 mm (7.48 in.) travel on Showa BFF (Balance Free Forks) fronts and a BFRC (Balanced Free Rear Cushion-lite) coil-over rear shock with electronic preload control and semi-active damping. The rear suspension incorporates a linkage system connection the shock, swingarm, and frame which provides a progressive feel through the stroke.

All-new Revolution Max 1250 Engine

  • FOR A NEW GENERATION OF ICONIC BIKES: The next chapter in a century of legendary V-Twins is here. Revolution Max is a liquid-cooled powertrain with over 145 horsepower, full of ample torque, and a surging powerband tuned to maximize rider control.
  • DUAL PURPOSE POWERTRAIN: The Revolution Max 1250 is a structural component of the motorcycle chassis, eliminating a traditional frame - which significantly reduces overall weight and keeps handling taut. This is performance you can feel, with the center of gravity low and the chassis super rigid.
  • PEAK PERFORMANCE WHERE IT COUNTS: Double Overhead Camshafts (DOHC) facilitate higher peak horsepower, and independent Variable Valve Timing (VVT) broadens the overall powerband and improves torque management. All this to say you'll have as much low-end acceleration off the line and high-RPM horsepower you can twist.

Comfort - Rider Comfort

  • VEHICLE LOADING CONTROL: This system senses the weight of the rider, passenger and luggage to select optimum suspension sag by automatically adjusting rear preload.
  • SEMI-ACTIVE SUSPENSION SYSTEM: This system reacts to suspension position, vehicle speed, vertical acceleration, roll angle and rate, throttle, brake inputs and the selected Ride Mode to maintain the desired comfort setting. There are five pre-programmed profiles, which are baked into each Ride Mode: 1)Comfort - More suspension compliance and isolating the rider from rough road conditions. 2)Balanced - A balance of ride comfort and ride control, for all-around riding. 3)Sport - Maximum ride control with higher damping rates - what we call "spirited riding". 4)Off-Road Soft - Reduced initial damping to increase suspension compliance to better absorb larger obstacles and to reduce kickback: ideal for logging roads, washboards and rocky terrain. 5)Off-Road Firm - Increased initial damping for aggressive riding or when less body float is desired: ideal for soft / loamy terrain.

Great Expectations

  • PAN AMERICA 1250 MODELS ARE EQUIPPED: With the latest technology you'd expect for the category - six-axis IMU, customizable ride modes, Bluetooth connectivity and moving map navigation features in a 6.8 in (173 mm) touchscreen display.

Off-Road Ready

  • ALUMINUM SKID PLATE: Protects the engine crankcase from impacts.
  • BRUSH GUARDS: Protect the radiator and help support the motorcycle in a tip-over.
  • STEERING DAMPER: To enhance dynamic performance during aggressive off-road riding.
  • NO-TOOL-NEEDED ADJUSTABLE BRAKE PEDAL: Which can switch between two positions to improve control and comfort when the rider is standing.
  • SEMI-ACTIVE FRONT AND REAR SUSPENSION: With a specific Off-Road mode programmed to help the rider maintain traction and control over rougher roads and terrain.

Pricing

  • Laced wheel option - $500
  • Adaptive Ride Height - $1000
  • California Emissions - $200 (Vivid Black is not available in CA.)
