#Riders Can Own a New Roadster Motorcycle for $7 a Day
MILWAUKEE (May 18, 2016) – For less than seven bucks a day*, Americans can own a new Dark Custom™ Harley-Davidson® Roadster™ motorcycle. To bring $7-a-day to life, Harley-Davidson created its first-ever free motorcycle-share pop up so everyone (at least through Friday) can test ride a new motorcycle and feel the difference of the nimble Roadster’s air-cooled 1200cc V-Twin engine in urban environments.
“We borrowed the popular bicycle share concept for a few days to showcase how folks can afford to own this new racing-inspired motorcycle,” said Dino Bernacchi, Harley-Davidson U.S. Marketing Director. “This will give riders an opportunity to experience an all-new and more exhilarating way to get around the city. A trip across town on two-wheels will never be the same.”
Temporary Harley-Davidson motorcycle-sharing stations featuring the Roadster will pop-up in select U.S. cities, including Portland, Los Angeles and Harley-Davidson’s hometown of Milwaukee, just as the new motorcycle hits local dealerships.
“This whole effort is designed to show just how attainable owning a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle can be. So, if folks can’t make it down to one of our pop-ups, they can head to a local Harley-Davidson dealer and see for themselves how owning a new Roadster or one of eight other new Harley-Davidson motorcycles can cost less than $7 a day,” Bernacchi added. “It’s easier now than ever to own a Harley-Davidson with the new Roadster, or look into the Street™ 500 starting at $99 a month**.”
