Harley davidson, known for making high quality motorcycles, has another success story with the Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250. This bike comes with a variety of customization options and additional accessories, but among them all, which could be considered the most useful and effective? A few of these options stood out among the rest for their durability, reliability, convenience, safety, subtlety and smoothness. Features like Adaptive Ride Height (ARH), tubeless cross spoke wheels, Michelin tires, and SW Motech luggage containers all tend to be highly desirable.
Read on to find out how useful and practical these accessories can be.
Adaptive ride height (ARH) changes the experience
The seat height can be changed to give the rider more control. One of the most popular customization options is Adaptive Ride Height (ARH), which comes at an additional charge of $ 1,000. The ARH will lower the Harley-Davidson’s suspension when the bike comes to a complete stop, and it will also lower the saddle 1 to 2 inches, depending on the rear weight load, making it easier for riders to reach floor. once the bike has stopped.
The seat height will be as low as 28 inches with ARH, but without it the seat height ranges from 31.1 inches to 32.1 inches. It’s also worth noting that riders don’t feel the ARH at work when the Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 is in auto-tuning, making it barely noticeable. The ARH also facilitates the rider’s handling as the system reads the speed.
When the bike drops below 15.5 MPH, ARH starts working. That said, however, the speed at which the seat lowers will depend on the strength of the lever, the chassis and the rate of braking. On top of that, ARH offers a setting to vary the deployment rate, as well as a setting to disable the option if bikers find it unwanted. ARH is a factory installed option, but most riders are willing to pay extra for the installation given the functionality and subtlety of that functionality.
Spoked wheels add weight
Most bikers seem to speak favorably of wire wheels, although they add 14 pounds and cost an additional $ 550. Cross spoke tubeless wheels have proven to be a practical option for off-road riding, as these wheels are superior to standard wheels to handle rigorous driving and more difficult obstacles. The Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 has a base price of $ 17,319, and the addition of tubeless cross-spoke wheels increases the price by an additional $ 500.
Also, the bike’s dry weight is 539 lbs, but the tubeless cross spoke wheels will make the bike 14 lbs heavier. Cast aluminum wheels are standard and cross spoke wheels are anodized aluminum. The front wheel measures 19 inches, while the rear wheel measures 17 inches. Drivers say cross spoke wheels handle dirt under the bike better than standard wheels.
Michelin Scorcher Adventure tires are perfect for riding
Be sure to add these tires if they are not already installed at the factory, as they allow riders to cover wider varieties of terrain. Another option is the custom-designed Michelin tires for a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Michelin tires feature both Bridge Block technology and 2CT + technology, both designed for on-road stability.
Specifically, the new technology features a specialized and detailed tread pattern that is all new and engineered for more precise handling for longer term travel, as well as superior off-road traction. Drivers who tested the Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 found that the tires lived up to their expectations, especially the performance was better, especially in corners and in the rain.
Pan America aluminum luggage and mounting system is beneficial
This luggage configuration offers cyclists a place to store their important belongings without compromising or sacrificing safety or the enjoyment of the ride. Harley-Davidson has collaborated with SW Motech to create a luggage container that is both practical and non-detrimental to the driving experience. The luggage configuration has an aluminum top and side cases with integrated handles. The whole is locked on the frame and controlled with a single key for each of its six locks. All covers are both removable and replaceable.
In addition, the entire system was designed, installed and tested at the factory before making its debut in the retail space. The luggage containers have proven to be both durable and reliable, even going so far as to be waterproof thanks to both the joints in the lids and its welded construction making them waterproof. It has also been shown in testing that this whole device does not compromise the handling and lean angle of the bike, thanks to its fit, material and location.
