550-580 pounds wet would not be a bad weight given it the other bikes in the field. However the BMW GS and Triumph Tiger are putting out 130-140 HP and the KTM puts out 160 HP. It will be interesting to see what the HD bike puts out. Performance wise it may be in the ballpark, hopefully the other specs will be as well.

I definitely think the Pan American is gonna have more Torque. I still think the engine looks very much like the V-Rod, with a little different aesthetics on the outside.

Personally I feel, Insert foot here, that HD has used a lot of the material they have as it is traditional and what the Faithful want.

now saying that.

This bike is not marketed to the Faithful, it is a show piece to where they want to go. Such as with the live wire project, they can break traditional HD ground here. So coming in lower in weight than the competition is feasible. My bigger concern would be how they tune the engine, low down for torque or higher up for HP.

remember the puff job of a mini series, Harley and the Davidson's? Remember They kept saying a bike you can go anywhere on? Torque also rules in that venue.

After all HD has always marketed torque.

I'm pretty sure it'll come in somewhere between 413 and 2572 lbs.
