You forgot the best of the breed... The Yamaha Super Tenere.
If you need the most bragging rights the Ducati 1260 has a bit more power...Wow, 160 hp touring biks, 400 Hp 6000 pound Pu trucks and 300 hp 4500 pound mid size SUV....People ain't the only obese things,
plenty to like with the Yamaha Super Tenere - 108.5 hp / 584 lbs wet / $16,299.00 baseand Triumph Tiger 1200 XC - 141 hp / 580 lbs wet / $19,700.00 baseSuzuki 1050 XA V Strom - 106 hp / 545 lbs. wet / $14,799.00 baseKawasaki Versys 1000 SE LT - 118 hp / 567 lbs wet / $17,999.00 baseand a recap HD Pan America - 150hp / 534 lbs wet / $17,319 base BMW R1250 GS - 136 hp / 591 lbs wet / $17,995 baseKTM 1290 Adventure R - 160 hp / 530 lbs wet / $18,599 baseHonda Africa Twin Sport ES -100 hp / 501 lbs wet / $14,399 baseIt is a very crowded field and any of these big adventure bikes would be a fine motorcycle if the tall and naked bike is your thing. For low weight, lowest cost and extensive dealer network I would take the Honda. Trying to match MSRP 'base' price is confusing to put it lightly, as others have said does a bse price motorcycle really even exist?I hope the HD can find its share of the market, they probably have a lot riding on its sucess.
Enough already!! Stop with the over the top congratulations too HD! So many seem so impress and surprised that they could bring such a bike to the market for a competitive price, well Dahh!It's not nuclear Med, it's a motorcycle. If any of us had the resources that HD has, we too could build such a bike, it just takes money. They are trying to sell more motorcycles, if they thought the future was solar powdered trikes they would be introducing that with Jason M.
H-D is a suffering company with loads of history but a stagnant presence in the current market whose reputation relies on a particular market. The fact that they’re trying, AND TRYING, to find an Avenue of success out of that dying niche is absolutely worth applauding.That said, I’d be jumping and hollering with positivity toward them if they could produce a back-to-basics TRUE mid-weight like what Royal Enfield is doing.
Dirk is thus bike not doing just that? It was my understanding that there was going to be two different size motors? I stand corrected on that if need be.

Test ride videos are surfacing>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UN2Is9LE6egSound clip in this one at 9:30. Sounds like a blender. Tech heavy. Definitely shooting for the beemer crowd.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g18iCBvS8dQ
I find it mildly amusing that so many new motorcycles need to have about 40 tech things, modes, and whatever else or they get dismissed right off the bat-not to mention so much horse power that controls are needed to keep the rider away from themselves.And I don't even OWN red suspenders!
There is at least one TV ad for a car that never mentions anything about the actual car , the entire ad is based on how the car is connected to the internet . So yes , unfortunately tech that most of us will never use sells in the modern world . Beyond some tech that makes a motorbike safer or handle better , most of these baubles are just that . 20 years ago I test rode a new RT beemer , Ken at Atlas Cycles spent 15 minutes explaining what all of the knobs and switches did , I just wanted to ride the dang thing and see how it worked , all of those "features" were meaningless . After the test ride, the old airhead RT ridden to the dealer felt like an uncomplicated old friend welcoming me back after a fling with some exotic hard to deal with person . Dusty
Diva - 'exotic hard to deal with person'. We are clearly in the age of diva bikes.
The interesting thing , it is possible to have a comfortable reliable motorbike with modern fueling and electrical systems that work , good brakes , weather protection , saddle bags , good suspension , all of the things that make a motorbike such a wonderful device , W/O having some over complicated appliance that takes a degree in engineering to operate . Dusty
Ah come on Dusty, who would buy a simple lighter weight capable machine.? Old Airhead and Guzzi riders?..Buyers want all the extras, you can read it here all the time....
Royal Enfield 650? It's like the high end ADV segment is in a technology arms race. Whoever offers the most bells and whistles wins the adoration of the press and money of the 'sophisticated' riders trying to out-farkel the others at the coffee house. Auto-lowering rear suspension - bet your GS can't do that!
Not to mention the hp wars. God forbid if your ADV doesn't have 160hp or else............... .....you're CANCELED!
Auto-lowering rear suspension - bet your GS can't do that!
Glad to see HD diversifying, hope it’s a huge success. I know that’s not a popular opinion on this site but after owning and still riding HD’s they have been the most reliable easy maintainable motorcycles I’ve ever owned.
