Confirmed for 2024: Harley-Davidson is set to unveil additional models on January 24, including some from the Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) lineup. can verify that among these, the Pan America will be treated to the CVO treatment.

This confirmation is backed by an executive order issued by the California Air Resources Board, certifying the Pan America range for 2024. The certified models include the previously announced Pan America 1250 Special, the base model Pan America 1250 (announced for international markets but not the U.S.), and a new addition—the CVO Pan America.

Traditionally, CVO models feature a larger engine than their regular counterparts, but the executive order reveals that the CVO Pan America will share the same 1,252 cc Revolution Max engine as the RA1250 and RA1250S. Anticipated specs indicate similar performance, boasting 150 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and 94 lb-ft of torque at 6,750 rpm.

While details on the weight difference are not precise, the executive order hints that the CVO Pan America will be heavier than the standard Pan Americas. The "equivalent inertia mass" (EIM) is listed at 380 kg (838 pounds) for the CVO Pan America, compared to the RA1250S and RA1250 with an EIM of 360 kg (794 pounds). Much of this weight variance is expected to be attributed to standard luggage and additional accessories.

Notably, the CVO Pan America is likely to feature a distinctive paint scheme, setting it apart from the regular models. The January 24 announcement from Harley-Davidson is anticipated to include the CVO Pan America, alongside the returning CVO Road Glide and CVO Street Glide.
