LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EagleRider, the world’s largest motorcycle rental and travel company, and Harley-Davidson have achieved a significant milestone in the strategic alliance between the two brands – activating more than 100 Harley-Davidson® dealerships as rental locations throughout the United States.
“Less than one year into our alliance with Harley-Davidson, we are very pleased to announce this key accomplishment,” said Chris McIntyre, CEO and Co-founder of EagleRider. “Our companies have been working diligently to deliver the largest connected network of motorcycle rental locations throughout the U.S. We are eager to continue reaching new riders across America as we head into prime travel season.”
More than 35 new locations have already opened and 70 more will begin taking bookings by May 2018. With the vast network of rental locations, riders can begin and end their two-wheeled adventures almost anywhere in the United States. The 100+ new locations give riders from around the world additional access to America’s most popular tourist destinations and motorcycle routes like the iconic Route 66 and Pacific Coast Highway.
“Our alliance with EagleRider is an important component of our objective to build two million new riders in the U.S.,” said Anoop Prakash, Director of U.S. Retail Development at Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “The opening of each additional location brings increased access to the sport of motorcycling and to our exciting 2018 motorcycle line-up. And there is no better place for new riders to start their motorcycling journey than in the care of the expert staff found at every Harley-Davidson® dealership.”
Both companies are committed to helping travelers explore America in the most authentic way possible, on an iconic Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. Every EagleRider/Harley-Davidson location can set riders up with guided tours, daily rentals and Club EagleRider membership opportunities.
Through the alliance, which was announced in May 2017, EagleRider exclusively offers current model year Harley-Davidson® motorcycles for its Touring and Large Cruiser motorcycle rental segments, equipped with Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Parts and Accessories. Harley-Davidson exclusively works with EagleRider to provide rental, travel and tour experiences from its U.S dealership network.
