High Tech Comfort
A category first, Adaptive Ride Height is a factory-installed option that 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.

Reaching for the Sky

The Harley-Davidson® Pan America 1250 scaled new heights when a group of five motorcyclists reached the top of Kela Pass in the Himalayas, making history in the process.

Kela Pass, located in the Leh district of Ladakh, India, is the highest unpaved motorable road in the world at 18,600 feet above sea level. It’s characterized by steep slopes, loose gravel, rocks, snow and ice – incredibly challenging terrain for both bikes and riders.

Adventure Touring Motorcycles

Adventure touring motorcycles are perfect for those who need more excitement in life. Why settle for a simple motorcycle that can't handle dirt roads and all of the stops along the way? At Harley-Davidson, we have a selection of adventure motorcycles that can keep up with all of the adventures that riders crave.

Loads of Comfort

Harley-Davidson adventure touring bikes have a seat that keeps the rider in an upright and comfortable position. This seat has an adaptive design that fits riders of different sizes and continuously senses weight inputs to adjust the preload for optimum suspension sag. The center stand that comes standard makes it easier than ever to park the bike and keep it upright. Also standard on our adventure motorcycles are tubeless laced wheels that come installed from the factory and offer a smoother ride. For added comfort on cold days, riders can warm their hands with heated motorcycle handgrips.

Check out our motorcycle backrest pads for a more comfortable riding experience.

Engine Details and More

Our adventure touring bikes come with a Revolution Max V-Twin motor that gives riders more control whether they need to keep up with the flow of traffic on the highway or stop and start multiple times while driving through the city. This motor is liquid-cooled and offers plenty of torque. The brush guard on the side of the bike cuts down on the cleaning that it needs and works with the skid plate that is only inches away.
