Harley-Davidson’s 1st Adventure Touring, Streetfighter Models Debut with All-New Revolution Max Engines

The powerful all-new 60-degree V-Twin has been designed for a new range of Harley-Davidson motorcycles in two different guises – 1250cc in the new Harley-Davidson Pan America and 975cc in the Harley-Davidson Bronx.

Displayed for the first time publicly at EICMA in Milan, Harley-Davidson is showcasing two all-new middleweight motorcycles, including the release of information surrounding the latest signature Harley-Davidson V-Twin engine – the Revolution Max. The powerful all-new 60-degree V-Twin has been designed for a new range of Harley-Davidson motorcycles in two different guises – 1250cc in the new Harley-Davidson Pan America and 975cc in the Harley-Davidson Bronx. Harley-Davidson first announced expansion into new segments including new middleweight offerings in its More Roads to Harley-Davidson accelerated plan for growth in July 2018.  These exhilarating new models will both launch in late 2020 extending the iconic brand into new market segment.

Pan America™

The Harley-Davidson Pan America is an all-new advanced adventure touring multi-purpose motorcycle equal parts campfire, wanderlust, and grit. The Pan America is a two-wheel multi-tool built to endure, designed to explore, and engineered for the unknown. 

Bronx

The new Harley-Davidson Revolution Max powertrain is also at the heart of an all new Bronx. This middleweight streetfighter model rolls with an unapologetic attitude and performance to match.

Powering both the new Pan America and Bronx models is the new liquid-cooled 975cc and 1,250cc Revolution Max engine. Created to power a range of new Harley-Davidson models, the Revolution Max is designed to offer flexible performance with a broad powerband that builds to a surge of high-RPM power. Minimizing weight and maximizing performance, the Revolution Max provides a narrow powertrain profile that is integrated into the motorcycle as a stressed member of the frame to enhance center of gravity and handling. The fully balanced powertrain has an internal counter balancer that mitigates primary engine vibration to enhance rider comfort and improve vehicle durability. Its design is bold and contoured, classic and contemporary, strong and svelte – a representation of Harley-Davidson performance and style.

Revolution Max 1250 Engine Performance Targets

  • Displacement 1250cc
  • More than 145 horsepower
  • More than 90 ft. lbs. peak torque

Revolution Max 975 Engine Performance Targets

  • Displacement 975cc
  • More than 115 horsepower
  • More than 70 ft. lbs. peak torque

Revolution Max Engine Technical Features

  • Liquid-Cooled V-Twin Architecture
  • Since 1909 the V-Twin engine has been the centerpiece for legendary Harley-Davidson motorcycles. This lineage continues into the middleweight performance space with the Revolution Max engine.
  • A 60-degree vee angle of the cylinders provides space for dual down draft throttle bodies that maximize air flow and increase performance.
  • Liquid cooling maintains a controlled engine temperature for consistent performance in changing environmental and riding situations.

High Performance Development Collaboration – Braking and Tire

To optimize performance of the new Pan America and Bronx models, Harley-Davidson tapped into the expertise of world class component manufacturers to deliver bespoke solutions for braking and tire performance. For braking, Harley-Davidson collaborated with Brembo to create a new radial monoblock four-piston caliper that combines sharp edges with softer curves designed to create a style that complements the personality of the bike and delivers outstanding braking feel and capability. For tires, Michelin and Harley-Davidson have worked closely to develop co-branded tires for each motorcycle model that optimize performance, feel and grip in all conditions.
