Harley-Davidson Pan America Receives A Price Cut Of Rs. 4 Lakh In India
Harley-Davidson as a company took a step into the new era of biking when they created & introduced their ‘Revolution Max’ or ‘RevMAx’ engine sporting modern tech such as Hydraulic Valves etc on their Pan America & Bronx concept models. It was the first time ever for the company that they moved away from their traditional ‘Milwaukee-Eight’ configuration engines and created an engine that is aimed to take the company into the future.
In India, H-D Pan America, like other countries, was launched in 2 variants – Standard & Special. The Standard Pan America was priced at Rs. 16.90 Lakh (ex-showroom) while the up-specced Pan America Special was asking Rs. 21.11 Lakh (ex-showroom).
As India is a very price-sensitive market, the sales numbers of the months that have gone by have shown that it is very difficult for the company to move its ADV with such high pricing in the segment where companies like Hero MotoCorp are offering very capable ADV at a very affordable price. So, H-D India have decided to slash the asking price of both the Pan America variants by a massive Rs. 4 Lakh.
So, the 2022 Harley-Davidson Pan America Standard will now cost Rs. 12.91 Lakh (ex-showroom) while the top-spec Pan America Special will cost Rs. 17.11 Lakh (ex-showroom) in India from now on. With the price cut, Pan America will directly compete with BMW F850 GS, Triumph Tiger 900, Triumph Tiger 1200 Range, Honda Africa Twin etc.
A little more about the Pan America – While the Bronx streetfighter concept is still a concept, the Pan America ADV is the first machine from H-D stables to flex the Revolution Max muscle. The company’s first Adventure-tourer machine is powered by a 60-degree, 1252 cc, V-twin motor which boasts numbers like 150 HP at 8750 RPM and 128 Nm of torque at 6750 RPM. This powerhouse is connected to a new 6-speed transmission system designed to tackle both the tarmac & the rough terrain.
The Pan America ADV boasts a 21 L fuel tank for longer highway hauls while the feature list is filled to the brim with modern tech like semi-active suspension, adaptive lights, TPMS, spoked 19” wheel at the front and 17” at the rear & an optional adaptive ride height feature.
