H-D Certified™ Program
The Harley-Davidson Certified™ program is designed to take the worry out of purchasing a pre-owned Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Each Harley-Davidson Certified™ pre-owned motorcycle is subjected to a comprehensive 110-point quality-assurance inspection by certified Harley-Davidson technicians. Dealers also verify that the pre-owned motorcycle has no open recalls or a blocked VIN, has not been in a major accident, and that all scheduled service is up to date. Harley-Davidson® motorcycles eligible for the program must be no more than five model years old, have less than 25,000 miles of use, and not contain aftermarket modifications to the engine or transmission, or major chassis or electrical modifications.
A Harley-Davidson Certified™ pre-owned motorcycle is sold with a 12-month limited warranty* on the engine and transmission. Each Harley-Davidson Certified motorcycle sale also includes a complimentary one-year membership in H.O.G.® (Harley Owners Group), with standard member benefits like roadside assistance**. Special financing rates and programs for the purchase of a Harley-Davidson Certified™ pre-owned motorcycle are available through Harley-Davidson Financial Services to qualified customers.
* The Harley-Davidson Certified 12-month limited warranty has a $50 deductible charge per claim.
