    Default 150HP. 9500RPM. V-Twin....

    And it's a HARLEY? https://www.cycleworld.com/story/mot...t-ride-review/
    This could be a game changer if they price it competitively. Going to really p!$$ off the old skool riders though.

    Yeah the Pan America is hideous.

    And about $18K base price.

    You think THAT'S ugly, check out the Husqvarna Vitpilen 701! At half the price I'd take one of those instead for off roading.

    As to the H-D anything you do is going to tick off the purists so why worry. Big V-Twins are a dying market catering to a dying demographic, they should have started projects like this in the late 70's as far as I'm concerned. 32mpg is horrid in this day in age although I was somewhat surprised by the weight at only 560lbs. For $20k I'll take the Husky and a garage full of project bikes.

    In Canada the stock Special starts at $24,199.00.
    Add the luggage, spoke wheels and upgraded paint and it will easily be $35,000 to have one in the driveway.

    Yeah, no thanks. Just like the big BMW "adventure" bikes, they really aren't for anything other than cruising around. I'll take a KLR with all the mods and no payment any day.
