Harley-Davidson revealed the details of Harley-Davidson Certified. It’s the first certified pre-owned motorcycle program supported by the company via its network of authorized dealers in the U.S.
“H-D Certified is a strategic effort to strengthen our competitive position and is part of our new approach to the used motorcycle marketplace, aligned to the strategic priorities of The Hardwire, while supporting growth,” said Jochen Zeitz, chairman, president and CEO, H-D. “We believe this program will drive Harley-Davidson desirability and enhance the overall customer experience, allowing more riders to have access to our motorcycles and provide them with an added level of confidence in their purchase.”
The program also aims to take the worry out of purchasing a pre-owned Harley motorcycle. Each Harley-Davidson Certified pre-owned motorcycle gets a comprehensive 110-point quality-assurance inspection by certified H-D techs. Dealers also verify that the pre-owned motorcycle has no open recalls or a blocked VIN. They also verify that the bike hasn’t been in a major accident and that all scheduled service is current. H-D motorcycles eligible for the program must be no more than five model years old and have less than 25,000 miles of use. Aftermarket modifications to the engine or transmission, or major chassis or electrical modifications invalidate eligibility also.
A Harley-Davidson Certified pre-owned motorcycle will be sold with a 12-month limited warranty on the engine and transmission. Each Harley-Davidson Certified motorcycle sale also includes a complementary one-year membership in H.O.G. (Harley Owners Group). Standard member benefits of which also include roadside assistance. Special financing rates and programs for the purchase of a Harley-Davidson Certified pre-owned motorcycle will be available through Harley-Davidson Financial Services to qualified customers.
Participation in the program will be at the discretion of each authorized Harley dealer. For more information visit the MoCo website.
