Harley released the 1250cc Pan America adventure bike and the Bronx 975cc nakedbike at EICMA 2019. Here are the details of the new Revolution Max powered bikes...
Harley-Davidson unveiled two all-new middleweight motorcycles at EICMA 2019, including the release of information surrounding the latest signature Harley-Davidson V-Twin engine – the Revolution Max. The all-new 60-degree V-Twin has been designed for a new range of Harley’s in two different guises – 1250cc in the new Pan America and 975cc in the Bronx. These new models will both launch in late 2020 extending the iconic brand into new market segments, finally! We’re excited…
The Harley-Davidson Pan America is an all-new advanced adventure touring multi-purpose motorcycle. Harley say the Pan America is a two-wheel multi-tool built to endure, designed to explore, and engineered for the unknown… We will take their word for it. We just want to go adventure riding on it!
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 according to Harley. We say it’s not a streetfighter but a nakedbike but it does look awesome – very Yamaha MT-01 styled…
Powering both the new models is the new liquid-cooled 975cc and 1250cc 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.
The Revolution Max provides a narrow powertrain profile that is integrated into the motorcycle as a stressed member of the frame to enhance centre 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. Harley say its design is bold and contoured, classic and contemporary, strong and svelte – a representation of Harley-Davidson performance and style. Again, we will trust them on that one and whatever their press writers are on, give us two!

- 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 downdraft throttle-bodies that maximize airflow 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 Tyres
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 tyre performance. For braking, Harley-Davidson collaborated with Brembo to create a new radial monoblock four-piston caliper that Harley say 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 tyres, Michelin and Harley-Davidson have worked closely to develop co-branded tyres for each motorcycle model that optimize performance, feel and grip in all conditions.
