Harley-Davidson Expands Bike Builder Web Tool

The H-D1™ Bike Builder tool on HarleyDavidson has been expanded to include all current Harley-Davidson® motorcycle models and has new added features. H-D1 Bike Builder lets visitors virtually customize their dream Harley-Davidson motorcycle with select Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories®. Builders can gauge the visual impact of each accessory on the screen in an eight-frame, 360-degree view that’s in a large screen format.

Navigation on the H-D1 Bike Builder is organized into four categories: Fit, Function, Style and Performance. Accessories can be added and deleted from the bike, with the screen image changing accordingly. The MSRP of each item added to the base motorcycle is calculated on a summary chart screen with an updated “as built” total.

H-D1 Bike Builder also offers social sharing of a saved virtual customization on Facebook and Twitter, a printable view of your dream bike, and also downloadable custom wallpaper. Visitors can also use H-D1Bike Builder to locate an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer, schedule a test ride, estimate payments, and download a credit application. The site also offers educational videos on Fit, Function, Style and Performance aspects of customizing.

H-D1 Bike Builder is constantly updated as Harley-Davidson introduces new models and accessories. Harley-Davidson Motor Company produces heavyweight custom, cruiser and touring motorcycles and offers a complete line of Harley-Davidson motorcycle parts, accessories, riding gear and apparel, and general merchandise.

    If you don’t buy HD accessories the IRS will tax you.

    It is nice to see the rest of the models on this program finally…. I remember looking at some of the original booklets about the HD-1 Program – there were pictures of road kings, heritage softails, etc, etc – but the only bike you could customize was the XL 1200 Custom….

    Harley needs to get their focus on building solid dependable motorcycles instead of promoting this flashy new way to buy a new bike. Harley continues to lower their quality but keep the price sky high. Harley has started, with the 2008 models I believe, taken the bearings out of the cam plate. Just making it cheaper! A friend of mine has had his 2012 Road King in the shop three times since he purchased it to correct assembly problems!
    Next time your at a dealership, look at the number of late model bikes that are in there for repair!

    It is 90% dealer installed – still a waste. You should be able to order all accessories for factroy installation, like with any car. Whats the point of throwing out wheels, fok legs, cables, cylinders, blah blah blah and substituting them with expensive add on at the dealer? Then you throw away the original parts, jacking up the overall cost.

    If you could order chrome swingarms and fork legs, screaming eagle engine parts, wheels and tires (the list goes on and on) shipped fromn the factory without throwing all the old parts away – now that would be a great program. Paying for parts you immediately replace and incurring dealer shop rates for installation is not an attractive program.

    It is a promising start, but not enough to have me replace my old bike and start over with expensive parts, If those parts were factory installed, greatly reducing overall cost (no charge for throw-away parts, and no labor costs for installing the new parts) it would be very well recieved.

    That’s not how you build a bike, lol . . .

    Little Bear nailed it.
    I can’t understand why they don’t
    Glorify that experience for the buyer

    All I am saying is you should be able to order a harley any way you want it.

    To dispose of the stock parts thta you immediately replace is a complete waste.

    Agreed that it is hardly a “build”. If you are gonna build something, excellent.
