The first batch of the highly-anticipated 2021 Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 has finally made its way into Malaysia. Didi Resources Sdn Bhd, the official distributor for H-D here in the country, announced earlier this year that the brand's first adventure bike was set to arrive around April or May, but there were some obvious limitations imposed due to COVID-19 and the Movement Control Order (MCO).
Nevertheless, the first batch has arrived safe and sound, and looking at what Harley-Davidson of Malaysia announced back in March, there will be two variants that they'll be offering, which are the standard Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 with five-spoke wheels (from RM99,900 to RM101,900) and the Pan America 1250 Special with laced wheels (from RM115,900 to RM118,900). The prices are excluding insurance and road tax and also based on the colour choice.
Harley's first-ever 'adventure bike' is powered by the brand's latest 1,250cc V-twin 'Revolution Max' engine which is able to produce 150hp and 127Nm of torque. You can also say that the Pan America 1250 is also one of the 'smartest' H-D bikes you can get right now thanks to its electronic riding aids such as:
- Selectable Ride Modes (Road, Sport, Rain, Off-Road and Off-Road Plus)
- Cornering Enhanced Antilock Braking System (C-ABS)
- Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System (C-TCS)
- Cornering Enhanced Electronically Linked Braking (C-ELB)
- Cornering Enhanced Drag-Torque Slip Control System (C-DSCS)
- Cruise Control
- 6.7-inch TFT screen
- Hill Hold Control (HHC) + more
The first batch has been evenly distributed to all of the authorised dealers and showrooms here in Malaysia. To know more, you can head to any of the closest one BUT only after we're done with this 'total lockdown' situation. Until then, stay safe and stay positive.
