EICMA 2019 – HARLEY DAVIDSON PAN AMERICA AND BRONX
Harley-Davidson has revealed near-production versions of its upcoming Pan America adventure bike and its water-cooled streetfighter – now confirmed to carry the name ‘Bronx.’
Both bikes use the new Revolution Max engine, a 60-degree, DOHC, water-cooled motor, with the initial version of the Pan America getting a 1250cc version and the Bronx starting life with a smaller 975cc derivative. The engines use a balance shaft to cut vibes, and they act as structural chassis members. Eventually, we’re likely to see both sizes fitted to both models.
The initial two machines will go on sale in late 2020, with Harley targeting more than 145hp and 90lbft of torque from the larger engine and over 115hp and 70lbft from the smaller version.
The firm has worked with Brembo to design new monoblock radial calipers for the bikes and is working with Michelin to create co-branded tyres for the machines.
