The customer can also opt for different payment methods for the purchase of their new motorcycle.

American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson has launched different initiatives to make the new motorcycle-buying experience safe as well as more convenient than ever before in India. The company, in its efforts to offer a completely contactless experience, is offering its whole range of motorcycles on its online platform, wherein the customers can choose their motorcycle and then also select their preferred dealership for delivery.

Further, the customer can also opt for different payment methods for the purchase of their new motorcycle. Harley-Davidson will be offering complimentary delivery of new motorcycles to the customer's home or his preferred location, provided it is within 40km from the dealership. Additional distance will be charged per kilometre.

While these are the initiatives for customers getting new H-Ds, the existing owners can benefit from the extended service warranty offer. Harley is offering a 30-day extension to the owners whose product warranties are supposed to expire in this lockdown period. Further, a 60-day extension is being given to customers who fall under the HDFS (Harley-Davidson Financial Services) planned maintenance program.
