Factory-Engineered for Outstanding Fit, Function and Style
MILWAUKEE, WI – February 23, 2021 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Harley-Davidson® Pan America™ 1250 and Pan America™ 1250 Special are motorcycles designed for explorers, those riders seeking freedom and adventure on the road, and off-road. To amplify and personalize that experience, Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories has created a broad range of luggage and other accessories for these models and their riders. Each was designed to be an integral component of the motorcycle, to fit and function well, and to feel and look integrated with the motorcycle. Each has been validated to meet Harley-Davidson standards for durability and quality.
Luggage Accessories for Pan America 1250 and Pan America 1250 Special Models
Harley-Davidson has designed a tank bag and three different luggage systems – Sport, Aluminum and Adventure – for the Pan America™ 1250 and Pan America™ 1250 Special models, each designed specifically for the motorcycle, each intended to support a different type of touring and to appeal to a different rider style preference. Left and right side cases are sold together as a kit, while the top case is sold separately.
The side cases and top case luggage are waterproof. Luggage weight capacity is 10 kg (about 22 pounds) in each of the three cases, or 30 kg (about 66 pounds) total, for each style of luggage. Top case systems have been designed to support loading capacity without compromising ride, handling or speed limiting.
- Sport Luggage: This luggage set is designed primarily for on-road use by riders looking for the utility of luggage but who also value a clean look when the luggage is removed. This system includes side cases and a top case and is molded of rugged composite plastic material that has a smooth aesthetic and presents a clean silhouette on the motorcycle. The side cases and top case are designed for installation and removal, and each luggage piece has an integrated handle to enable it to be carried off the bike.
- The mounts for the side cases are built into the motorcycle, so when the cases are removed there is no extra hardware left behind to clutter the styling.
- The top case requires installation of a Top Case Mounting Plate (sold separately).

Additional Key Accessories for Pan America 1250 and Pan America 1250 Special Models
Reach® Solo Seat: The Reach® Solo Seat lowers seat height by one inch to adjust fit for riders of shorter stature, while retaining full functionality. This seat helps many riders get their feet down at a stop and retains the two-position adjustability feature and access to under-seat tool storage. Replaces only the rider seat position and matches the style of the original equipment seat.
Tallboy® Solo Seat: The Tallboy® Solo Seat opens the hip/knee/ankle angles to adjust fit for comfort, especially over longer distances, and offers a rider position for riders of a taller stature. Its design retains the two-position adjustability feature and access to under-seat tool storage. Replaces only the rider seat position and matches the style of the original equipment seat.
Tall Risers – Black: Tall Risers move the handlebar up and back two inches compared to the stock riser. This improves seated reach for some riders and also may improve control and comfort when the rider is standing on the foot pegs. The Tall Risers can be installed with the original equipment control cables and lines.
Center Stand: The center stand (original equipment on the Pan America 1250 Special model) supports the parked motorcycle in an upright position. With the center stand deployed the parked motorcycle takes up less space than it would leaning on its side stand, a benefit when garage space is tight. The stand also raises the rear wheel off the ground to facilitate maintenance and tire changes. The stand is pre-assembled with springs in place to facilitate installation.
80GRIT™ Collection – Raw or Black: 80GRIT Collection rider and passenger foot pegs and shifter peg are available for Pan America™ 1250 and Pan America™ 1250 Special models. The lightweight aluminum material has rugged styled edges to grip the boot sole for added traction.
Screamin’ Eagle® Street Cannon Muffler: This muffler is formed with a titanium shell, a carbon fiber end cap and a stainless-steel mid-pipe. It is durable and weighs 42 percent less than the original equipment on both Pan America models. The deep and sporty exhaust note is stirring but not extreme. Engineered with the motorcycle to facilitate installation.
Screamin’ Eagle® High Flow Air Cleaner: This washable and reusable performance air filter features an off-road specific filter media. Clean, dry and re-oil to remove the miles of collected dust, dirt, and debris from the filter to reuse it trip after trip. Factory engineered to be a replacement and upgrade over the original equipment air filter, it provides 9 percent more air flow to the engine than the original equipment filter to allow the engine to breathe in nearly all riding conditions.
Steering Damper: The steering damper (original equipment on the Pan America 1250 Special model) enhances dynamic performance during off-road riding, and can improve rider confidence in challenging situations.
Michelin® Anakee Wild Off-Road Tires (Front and Rear): These “knobby” tires (120/70R19 Front; 170/60R17 Rear) feature a tread pattern designed to deliver off-road traction and a bold style profile. These tires may be installed on the original equipment cast aluminum wheels or the optional laced wheels. Note: Tire purchase requires a Digital Tech update by an authorized Harley-Davidson® dealer.
Laced Wheels (Front and Rear): These laced wheels (a factory-installed option for the Pan America 1250 Special model) feature stainless steel spokes inserted through the aluminum wheel rim outside of the tire bead. The design permits the use of a tubeless tire and the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), eliminates the weight of an inner tube required in traditional laced wheels, and makes the spokes repairable in the field. These wheels give the motorcycle a look that is both rugged and high-tech.
Brush Guard: The tubular steel Brush Guard (original equipment on the Pan America™ 1250 Special model) can protect the radiator shroud and other motorcycle components from damage due to passing brush along a trail, and in the case of a tip-over. It also gives the motorcycle a rugged look.
Radiator Shield: The mesh Radiator Shield attaches to the front of the radiator to offer additional protection from small stones and other debris when riding off-road. The Radiator Shield also gives the motorcycle a little extra rugged look. The factory-integrated design of this shield offers protection from the environment.
Skid Plate: The accessory Skid Plate replaces the original equipment skid plate for added protection from flying rocks and impacts during off-road riding. It covers more of the bottom of the motorcycle, and is made of heavier aluminum material, than the original equipment skid protection. The factory-integrated design ensures proper fit and installation.
Headlamp Guard: The mesh Headlamp Guard is designed to protect the headlamp from impact damage from rocks and other debris, and enhances its rugged styling. The factory-integrated design offers protection from the environment when riding in off-road situations.
Screamin’ Eagle® Exhaust Shield Insert: The lightweight carbon fiber exhaust shield helps keep heat away from rider’s leg while aiding air flow between header and insert. Reflective heat shielding material is bonded to the backside of the insert, which mounts over the original equipment exhaust shield on both Pan America models.
Windshields: Adventure windshield choices offer factory-integrated design and quality with distinctive style, and maintain the function of the height adjustment mechanism. Choose a windshield height that matches your stature for improved comfort or added protection from the elements, with tint options for a style choice.
- Adventure Windshield 11-inch, Dark Smoke or Clear: This windshield is approximately 4.5 inches lower than the original equipment windshield and allows most riders to see over the windshield.
- Adventure Windshield 18-inch, Clear: This windshield is approximately 2.5 inches taller than the original equipment windshield for added protection from wind, rain and road debris.
Auxiliary LED Forward Light Set: The Auxiliary LED Forward Lights deliver premium functionality. Installed as a pair, each light has three functions within one housing: fog lights, driving lights, and off-road lights (not street legal). The factory-integrated design makes them easy to install and creates a perfect fit and look.
Tactical Heated Hand Grips: Get more comfort and control with these heated grips. Heat settings are controlled with a military grade resistor, and use a thermostat to automatically monitor and adjust heat output relative to the ambient temperature. A heating element wound internally to the grips provides consistent and even heating. The grips feature a black rubber grid pattern with deep grooves that provide outstanding grip for rider comfort and confidence in most conditions. Select high, medium or low heat setting by pushing a dedicated button on the left hand control. Selected heat setting is indicated with an icon on the color display screen. The grips remain at a constant temperature regardless of changes in outside temperature, and the left and right grips are each thermostatically and independently controlled for even heat output. Switched on/off with the ignition to avoid draining the motorcycle battery. Available only for the Pan America™ 1250 Special model.
Tank Knee Pads: These self-adhesive black rubber pads feature tapered raised ridges that complement the styling of the Pan America model seat, and add traction and comfort for extra grip. The two-piece kit offers protection for surfaces where rider legs and riding gear contact the tank.
** The Pan America motorcycle was designed for on-road and moderate off-road use (which entails use on paved and gravel roads or groomed trails, but does not include competition courses, rally routes, or similar use).
