The new H-D™ Connect service offers peace of mind no matter where riders are in relation to their motorcycle. H-D™ Connect introduces subscription-based cellular connectivity that links Harley-Davidson riders with their motorcycle through their smart phone using the latest version of the Harley-Davidson® App. With the H-D™ Connect service and the H-D™ App, owners will have access to key features and benefits:
- Motorcycle status: Check key vehicle health information at any time, and from any location, where sufficient cellular signal is available.
- Tamper alerts and stolen vehicle tracking service: Remotely monitor the motorcycle’s security, including tamper alerts and stolen-vehicle assistance.
- Service reminders and notifications: Receive automated reminders about upcoming vehicle service requirements and other vehicle care notifications.
H-D Connect is a standard feature on most model year 2020 Touring models and the LiveWire™ motorcycle. The H-D™ Connect service will be offered for a one-year free trial subscription period after the purchase of a new H-D™ Connect equipped motorcycle and is available with a subscription charge following the initial free period. H-D™ Connect will be available in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and most EU countries*.
