Bike fans of the Milwaukee-based manufacturer may need to wait until next year to get their hands on the planned new models from Harley-Davidson (H-D).
After a very difficult start for HD this year, which includes a change in the company's top seat and hardship brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, H-D is determined to get everything back on track with their new “Rewire” corporate strategy.
Originally scheduled to be launched late this year, the Pan America and Bronx will by pushed back by the rewire strategy. Their launch dates have been reset for simplicity and to also align with the riding season for full impact. Consequently, pricing for the two bikes are not yet available.
Just a brief background, both the new Pan America and Bronx models are powered by a new liquid-cooled 1,250cc and 975cc and Revolution Max engine, respectively. The Pan America is touted by H-D to be the “multi-tool” of motorcycles, and obviously has its eyes set directly on the BMW R 1250 GS. The Bronx, on the other hand, is a naked bike that H-D designed to appeal to the younger generation of riders.

This might be a good decision on the part of H-D. After all, with all the lockdowns in place, we wouldn't be able to enjoy our beloved steeds anyway. We'll just have to wait until this crisis improves.
