MY21 Pan America Riding Photography

Quite literally as this sentence is being written, members of the motorcycle press are gathering for the media intro to the new Harley-Davidson 2021 Pan American 1250 and 1250 Special adventure motorcycles. But you don’t have to be a member that that insider’s club to get your own shot at one of these exciting new bikes.

Riders can test ride the new ADV models, which are powered by the all-new Revolution Max 1,250cc DOHC liquid-cooled 60-degree V-twin, as part of the Harley-Davidson Pan America Motorcycle Demo Tour that kicked off in mid April and continues well into the fall. It includes 25 stops in 16 states, starting in Texas in April and wrapping up in Arizona in November.

Signups for H-D-hosted demos are now available here: PAN AMERICA DEMO REGISTRATION. Demo opportunities at other major adventure touring, overland events and rallies, signups will happen on location. 

“I’ve had the opportunity to ride a Pan America motorcycle both on and off-road, and can’t wait for riders to experience the innovations and capabilities that our team has built into this fantastic adventure touring bike,” said Jochen Zeitz, chairman, president and CEO of Harley-Davidson. “Now riders can experience for themselves the first motorcycle of its kind to be designed and developed from the ground up in America.”
