What truly separates Peterson’s Harley-Davidson® from other motorcycle dealerships in the Miami and South Florida area, is our culture. We want all motorcycle riders from experts and chapter leaders to novices and newbies to feel comfortable, have fun, and meet new people.

Buying a motorcycle from Peterson’s Harley-Davidson® isn’t the first and final step of your relationship with us. We want to help our customers network, meet friends for life, and enjoy their motorcycles for years to come.

Our love affair with Harley-Davidsons and Miami has been ongoing for almost 70 years. Peterson’s Harley-Davidson® was originally founded in 1954 in Key West, Florida. Since then, our business and families have grown, along with our roots in the Miami and greater South Florida community. We’re motorcycle enthusiasts just like you. We put every ounce of attention and detail into our Harley-Davidson® motorcycles as if they were really our own bikes. Peterson’s Harley-Davidson® is family run, and we welcome you to be a part of our family as an enthusiast, customer, and friend.

Common Questions When Buying Your First Harley-Davidson®

Your first question may well be what your budget is. What are you comfortable with spending? Do you want to purchase a new or pre-owned motorcycle? Do you want to purchase it in cash, or do you prefer to finance? Harley-Davidson® motorcycles span a wide range of cost from under $10,000 for the Iron 883 to the CVO Limited which starts at $44,099. There are 15 Harley-Davidson® models that start at under $20,000 and with financing options available in-house, we can ensure that you have a payment plan that matches your budget and puts you at ease.

Common Questions When Buying Your First Harley-Davidson®. Why You Should Choose Peterson’s Harley-Davidson®.Your second question may be which Harley-Davidson® motorcycle best fits your experience level? If you’re new to the world of bikes, you may want to choose a relatively lightweight motorcycle which makes it easier to handle for new riders, both men and women. If you’re looking for something to cruise all over South Florida from the Keys to Palm Beach, a touring bike such as the Road King may be a perfect fit. It all depends on your lifestyle and the only way to really know, is to come by, take a seat on some of our bikes, and take them for a spin.

A third question commonly asked, though not widely acknowledged, is how do you learn to ride a motorcycle if you’re new to it? We’ve got you covered there, too. Our Riding Class Academy is tailor made for riders of different experience levels including beginners who have never ridden a motorcycle before. You can choose from group lessons with friends or private one-on-one sessions with an experienced teacher. We can also help walk you through the process of obtaining your motorcycle license.
