From a press release issued By Harley-Davidson and their website:

Harley-Davidson® revealed four new 2024 motorcycle models ushering in a new era of touring performance, technology, and design.

Commemorating the 25th anniversary of Custom Vehicle Operations, the new CVO™ Road Glide® ST model takes hot rod bagger performance to the next level with racing inspired high performance suspension and brakes, and a potent new Milwaukee-Eight® 121 HO engine, and low final drive ratio that combine to produce the kind of acceleration and mid-range thrust aggressive riders crave. And the new CVO™ Pan America® debuts as the first CVO offering in the adventure touring segment, ready to take on anything with a host of standard equipment all wrapped up in exclusive custom paint and finishes.

“These exciting new models represent a new era for Harley-Davidson, elevating every aspect of performance, technology, comfort, and style,” said Jochen Zeitz, Chairman, President and CEO of Harley-Davidson. “Without question, these are the most enticing touring motorcycles ever offered by Harley-Davidson.”

The CVO™ Pan America® motorcycle is a new vehicle of discovery and the CVO™ program’s first adventure touring (ADV) motorcycle. All of the features that have made the Pan America® 1250 Special model a leading choice among discerning global Adventure Touring riders are retained, including the smooth-and-powerful Revolution® Max 1250 engine, semi-active front and rear suspension, touch screen display, selectable ride modes, and Daymaker® Adaptive Headlamp technology. The CVO™ Pan America® model is outfitted with a host of rugged accessories selected to enhance the journey, including Adaptive Ride Height suspension, rugged aluminum top and side cases, a Screamin’ Eagle® quickshifter, tubeless laced wheels, auxiliary LED forward lighting, an aluminum skid plate, providing excellent value to the adventure rider who wants it all and more.

A liquid-cooled powertrain delivers 150 horsepower, instant torque, and a surging powerband tuned to maximize rider control.

The semi-active suspension system dynamically adjusts damping based on position, vehicle speed, vertical acceleration, roll angle, throttle, brake inputs, and the selected Ride Mode to get the most from your adventure, wherever it takes you.

This system not only lowers seat height when stopped but also maintains a constant, optimum suspension sag at speed by continuously monitoring inputs and adjusting preload.

Advanced Daymaker Adaptive Headlamp technology utilizes the ABS inertial measurement unit (IMU) to determine the lean angle and automatically project additional light into unlit corners of the road or trail.

Provides clutchless upshifts and downshifts. Precise shifts are accomplished in an instant, enabling smoother, stress-free control during on- and off-road riding.

Designed to maximize traction during acceleration, deceleration, and braking, the system utilizes the latest chassis control, electronic brake control, and powertrain technology to enhance rider confidence while riding on any type of road condition.

Choose from five pre-programmed Ride Modes (Sport, Road, Rain, Off-Road, and Off-Road Plus) or create your own custom mode, tuning your bike with a specific combination of power delivery, engine braking, Cornering Enhanced Antilock Braking System (C-ABS), and Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System (C-TCS) settings.

The CVO Pan America features a 173 mm color TFT touchscreen that displays all instrumentation and infotainment functions and seamlessly pairs with the rider’s Bluetooth-equipped mobile device.

Designed in collaboration with SW-MOTECH™, this rugged aluminum luggage is built to withstand the rigor of hardcore adventure riding.

This durable, waterproof duffle bag can hold up to 0.04 cubic meters of adventure essentials and easily attaches to and detaches from the bike.

The CVO Pan America stands out in Legendary Orange with Raven Metallic and Atlas Silver on the fuel tank and fairing. A stylized “#1” logo adorns the fuel tank, and a small CVO graphic lives on each case side. CVO 25th Anniversary graphics are on top of the outer fairing and the console insert.
