Harley-Davidson subtly revealed its upcoming Custom 1250 last week, confirming that the all-new cruiser model is headed for production.

A few angles of the new bike were shown at the tail end of Harley’s Pan America launch video, wearing road-going components that were not present on the prototype version, like a large radiator, rubber footpegs and 1250 branding.

The 1250 moniker refers to Harley’s new Revolution Max 1250cc V-twin engine, which debuted on the Pan America adventure bike with a 112kW/127Nm tune.

As the Custom 1250 shares a powertrain with the Pan America, it can also be expected to take on similar electronic components and configurable rider modes.

This platform is also capable of adjustable power delivery, engine braking, as well as advanced cornering ABS and traction control.

In the public Pan American video ‘Everything is a Road’, Harley-Davidson chief engineer Alex Bozmoski had this to say.

“This is a new genre for Harley-Davidson,” said Mr Bozmoski on the Revoluton Max platform.

“We plan to build upon this platform going forward [with] a product that is coming out very soon, the 1250 Custom cruiser.

“It has got a fistful of power and torque just like the Pan America.”

Notable features shown in new images of the Custom 1250 include Brembo brakes, a round digital instrument dial, a short single seat, forward controls, high-set twin exhaust pipes, round bar-end mirrors and a rectangular LED light bar.

Harley-Davidson had originally planned to release a new streetfighter model using a smaller version of the Revolution Max platform, called the Bronx, although it appears to have put these plans on hold.

The American company has confirmed that it will launch its Pan America 1250 adventure bike locally in the third quarter of this year, priced from $31,995 rideaway.
