Can we get back to the PanAmerica, instead of spitting in each others' faces about who's lazier than whom? Just an idea.

Thank you for posting that. Look at the rake on the street fighter as opposed to the PA. it almost looks like the V-rod! LOL.

Chain is clearly shown!

It looks like it is going to be a substantial bike, "Trail Glide" for sure! I mean that complimentary though....it may be a great platform to take to Deadhorse AK!

Then why release photos of the bike in the woods on a trail with knobbie tires?


Or have Cycle World release snap shots of it doing this?

That second photo sure looks like cast wheels to me.

I wouldn't be surprised if they PA comes in 2 versions one more street oriented( cast wheels less aggressive tires) and one more dirt oriented (Spoked Wheels knobby tires, stronger skid plates, more engine protection). Most other manufactures of adventure bikes do that.

And is it just me or does the "Chain" on the PA look very wide in that rear shot?

When they test motorcycles or cars out they quite often cover up portions of the body or change the wheels and other cosmetic features so the finished product isnít leaked by the press before the actual debut

They say the truth hurts so I guess my words struck a nerve?? Like I said to each his own but donít try justifying something when you can just be honest and call it like it is. If your sole reason for not buying the bike is because you donít wanna get your hands dirty or a little bit of grease under your fingernails adjusting a chain then maybe just maybe an OFF-ROAD bike isnít for you...... Just saying
Sounds to me more like I struck a nerve on YOU!

I think that is a good guess...hopefully not. By comparison we have:

BMW R1250GS 549 lbs "ready to ride" <---- lightest in this class
Triumph Tiger 1200 XCa 546 lbs "dry" <---- 6 qts of oil and 2 gallons of gas would put this around 570 lbs
BMW R1250GSA 573 lbs "ready to ride"
Yamaha Super Tenere ES 584 lbs "wet"
Honda VFR1200X 608 lbs "curb weight" <---- the porker of the breed

Of course all of the above are without luggage, riders, or other optional equipment.
