Vance & Hines just announced the launch of its exhaust system for the new Harley-Davidson Pan America motorcycle. This is Vance & Hines’ first entry into the ADV Motorcycle Segment. Additionally, their Harley-Davidson Pan America exhaust will be followed by additional Vance & Hines systems designed to fit other popular ADV models.
The Harley Pan America Exhaust
Vance & Hines’ Harley Pan America Exhaust, The Adventure Hi-Output 450 delivers a performance increase of five foot-pounds of torque and over five horsepower versus the bike’s stock exhaust.
It reduces the overall weight of the Revolution Max-powered Harley by nearly six pounds. The product is designed with V&H’s distinctive look, a massive 4.5″ stepped, high-output canister constructed of 304 grade stainless steel with a brushed finish and a ceramic-coated, CNC-machined, billet aluminum end cap. The riveted badge showcases a new laser engraved logo graphic which will be used on all V&H’s ADV and off-road products.
For rider comfort, the mid-pipe has been designed to improve rider’s boot clearance while standing on the pegs.
The system delivers a signature exhaust note while meeting the SAE Standard J2825 sound levels. It maintains the bike’s 50-state emissions compliance.
Future ADV Motorcycle Exhausts
“This is an important launch for Vance & Hines,” said company President Mike Kennedy. “In addition to being a great exhaust for an outstanding motorcycle, the new Adventure Hi-Output 450 product moves us into a whole new category. ADV bikes are a hot market, and we are bringing Vance & Hines performance, style and sound to the category. In the coming months we’ll be delivering greater exhilaration to riders of all the most popular ADV bikes in the market.”
“We are making a significant investment in the off-road segment,” Kennedy continued. “Our R&D capabilities are already expanding in preparation for our growth in this category.”
