Harley-Davidson has recently filed for trademarking two new names: 48X and Pan America. The American motorcycle manufacturer is expected to launch the new motorcycles in 2018.
The two new names have been filed for a trademark at the EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). The development comes in the backdrop of the company filing for the trademark of 'Bronx' name, with the U.S Patents and Trademark Office.
As for the 48X, we expect the new motorcycle to be based on the Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight. While 1,202cc engine powers the Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight, the 48X is expected to be equipped with the 750cc Revolution X unit.
The Pan-America moniker could be a touring motorcycle and is expected to feature 'batwing' fairing, panniers and Harley's trademark Boom! Box infotainment system. The motorcycle could be powered by the 1,745cc Milwaukee 107 V-twin unit that delivers about 150Nm of torque.
Earlier this year, Harley-Davidson had announced that it would launch 100 new motorcycles by 2027. The report of the company filing a new trademark of the 48X and the Pan-America is an indication that it would launch the two motorcycle by 2018.
