A Harley Davidson extended warranty is a contract between the owner and the company. This type of coverage continues to provide protection for your motorcycle, excluding parts due to wear and tear after the normal manufacturer’s warranty has expired.
How much does a Harley Davidson extended warranty cost?
A Harley Davidson extended warranty may cost as little as $1,200 or almost double that at up to $2,000 for a five-year coverage. The price will vary depending on the duration of the plan and where it is purchased from.
|Warranty||Average Dealer Quote|
|3 years/unlimited miles||$1,100|
|4 years/unlimited miles||$1,200|
|5 years/unlimited miles||$1,350|
|6 years/unlimited miles||$1,550|
|7 years/unlimited miles||$1,850|

- Average Cost of Warranty: The average cost of the warranty is $1,410.
- Median Cost of Warranty: The median cost of the warranty is $1,350.
- Cost Range of Warranty: The cost of the warranty ranges from $1,100 to $1,850.

What should be included in the Harley-Davidson® extended service plan?
Stonewall Harley-Davidson argues that a typical plan offered by the company will include coverage for five years and provide $50 deductible plans with parts such as drivetrain, motor, and transmission being covered. This type of policy does not cover everyday wear and tear items like tires or brake pads so be sure to keep those up-to-date when they need replacing. You should always replace all of the parts at Harley Davidson dealerships and always have original parts installed to avoid voiding the insurance.
Other benefits include compensation for tows ($200 or less) as well as reimbursements for lodging ($150/day max.) And if you need it they provide Roadside Assistance 24 hours a day and car rentals (a maximum of $750).
If you sell your motorcycle in the future and it is still covered by a Harley Davidson warranty, then you will be able to transfer that coverage as long as it’s an official one. Coverage begins immediately after your factory warranty will expire.
Any additional expenses to consider?
For a few hundred dollars more, you can have the peace of mind that comes with tires and wheel coverage. This option is designed to replace your tire if it’s been damaged by something like an unexpected pothole or nail on the road or other road hazard.
Spending less on the Harley-Davidson warranty
Do not forget to check local third parties for warranties before purchasing a coverage plan from the dealership. These companies are reputable and can offer similar coverage at a much cheaper price, but always research their reviews online first.
It is always important to haggle when you are looking for the perfect coverage plan. Dealers are very much interested in getting more clients, and they might be willing to lower the price if it will help them land you as a client. Some people that have paid for this insurance plan before had success at negotiating up to 10%.
