Harley Davidson takes it's riding academy global
Harley-Davidson's riding academy has instructed over 350,000 riders since its debut in the year 2000. With that success under its belt, Harley-Davidson has decided to take the academy global by expanding to mexico, China and South Africa.
The program will involve the Street 500 motorcycles, which are considered the best entry-level machines that Harley-Davidson offers. All the classes are approved by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, and the instructors are all also MSF-certified.
The New Rider Course spans a minimum of 20 hours, and has a maximum student/teacher ratio of 6:1.
"For years we've been delivering a life-changing, freedom-inspiring training experience. Now, we're taking rider training to a new level by incorporating a Harley-Davidson motorcycle that students will want to keep riding long after class is over.
Instilling confidence is vital to preparing new riders to move from the classroom to the open road. We designed everything – the experience, the curriculum and the equipment – to inspire that needed confidence and empower new students to have a ton of fun learning to ride on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle."
Some states will exempt graduates from taking certain road tests, and completing the program usually leads to discounts towards buying a motorcycle.
