pan america™ 1250 special

The Pan America™ 1250 Special motorcycle is our premier two-wheel multi-tool built to endure, designed to explore and engineered for adventure.

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

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.

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.

190mm (7.48 inches) 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 connecting the shock, swingarm, and frame which provides a progressive feel through the stroke.

The 1250 Special has several enhancements as a standard for when you take the road less traveled.  

*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.

Available as a factory-installed option, the stainless steel spokes are inserted through the aluminum wheel rim outside of the tire bead.  These wheels offer the rider several advantages over the cast wheels in off-road conditions.  

Advanced Daymaker® Adaptive Headlamp utilizes 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.
