Harley-Davidson India has launched a smart phone application on Android and iOS platforms which aims to connect owners to each other. The app can be used to do a variety of stuff like planning trips, getting directions and sharing photos with other Harley owners.
Apart from this one can also find H-D dealers, nearby riders, fuel bunks and cafes. One can also join a rider group if there is any nearby. Plus, there is an option to store driver's licence information, motorcycle registration and to set reminders for service updates and PUC checks.
"The number of Harley-Davidson owners in India is growing faster than ever. The bond and camaraderie shared between our riders continues to be an essential part of the Harley-Davidson ownership experience. The H-D India smart phone application was developed to enhance the customer experience and take it a step further." said, Anoop Prakash, managing director Harley-Davidson India.
While the application doesn't bring anything new to the table, H-D fanatics, who had to make do with Harley t-shirts and merchandise can find a greater sense of belonging by joining this group. You need a VIN number of your Harley to join this one so we cannot comment much about its pros and cons. The app though looks interesting enough and is certainly worth your attention if you own a Harley-Davidson.
