Launch Alert! Harley-Davidson Pan America | An American Adv! What! | PowerDrift

Harley-Davidson has had a tough time in the recent past with falling sales. It’s led to far-reaching changes in how the company looks at products as well as markets. For example, Hero MotoCorp now runs H-D in India. And for another, could you have imagined a Harley Adv 3-4 years ago? A bike with no chrome, a tall seat, variable valve timing and electronic suspension control? Amazing, really. The Pan America is out and now, it’s on sale in India. Shumi has all the details you need to know on the bike that’s built to bring new customers to Harley as well as take the fight to the likes of the BMW R 1250 GS, Ducati Multistrada and the Honda Africa Twin 1100!

    Thanks for a great update man. I’m looking at buying an adventure bike soon and the Pan America is really up there on my options list. A comfortable ride is my main concern cause I’m getting old and plan on doing long trips, afcourse some mild off-roading abilities would be nice for Indian roads. When you do do your test drive could you please compare it to the GS and Tiger and tell us what you honestly think? Thanks!

    @Jeetendra Shende Powerdrift mentions a review as a review in all its titles. If you wish to take something which isn't a review as a review then that's on you and you alone. You can't blame Powerdrift for some people lacking comprehension about what a video is supposed to be. Powerdrift clearly titles all reviews so if you wish to ignore logic and reason there is nothing anyone can do.

    HD the company exited India but their business remained and was taken up by Hero motors. So it was an uninterrupted exit. So their business continued to operate while talks with hero were going on. The transition lead to a few dealers shutting shop but otherwise their business was running just fine

    A bike that will change the Fortunes of HD world over. No shame in making products ,what the market demands along with those HD is known for. Amazing ,Unique tank like look, fully loaded , 1250 Cc , 152bhp, 190mm travel, 210mm GC. These are right in the category of the best - BMWGS 1250 and ducati Multistrada v4. The icing on the cake it comes at the price of a Speed triple. Superb.

    महीने पहले

    @Joyesh Karmakar Of course. I ride a street naked. Great for short rides and even in the city commutes. But in the highway I face heavy wind blast at speeds over 120 and the suspension has short travel which makes travelling on bad roads a pain in the butt. Advs allow you to travel a lot longer distances at far greater comfort levels. Cruisers are good only for well paved highways. Their poor ground clearance, low performance and poor handling make them illsuited for a country like India where bad roads and winding roads are pretty much a part and parcel of almost every part of India.

    @Brendon Fernandes it can't be helped.. the most famous aspect of biking is freedom. But you loose the freedom on a goldwing when there are bad roads. You shed your freedom of speed when you are out of race tracks. Biker want freedom and adv tourers are enabling them to have freedom of going anywhere on a bike. But not everything is happy happy with advs also. You loose the freedom of nimble movement in a crowded city with the big bad advs.. There's always a tradeoff.
