On and on.
Comfortable cruising with an abundance of space: with the Grand America, you’ll never want the journey to end. The standard Dynamic ESA embodies the best possible handling and riding dynamics – the „CRUISE“ mode allows you to glide even smoother. Rest your legs on the standard footboard – laid-back, typical “American way of ride“. The pillion seat height was reduced by 7 cm for even more accessibility, especially when mounting and dismounting the bike – and the foot pegs were also moved down. Furthermore, the standard engine protection bar and the audio system with navigation preparation are guaranteed to impress. The journey continues. Make yourself even more comfortable with the armrest accessory, available on request.
