Motorcycle / ATV Ownership
Once you have signed the financing terms and agreements, you can ride off the dealership lot as the registered owner of the motorcycle.
With the regular finance program, you can tailor your purchase to reflect your monthly budget and needs. Equal consecutive monthly payments are calculated using competitive interest rates and terms from 24 to 60 months depending on the model chosen and amount to be financed. Once all of the payments have been made, a zero balance remains and you own the unit.

Provincial regulations stipulate that any motorcycle that is financed must be insured. The required coverage is outlined in your financing agreement and will be detailed by your dealer representative.
As the registered owner of the motorcycle, you are responsible for the maintenance of the unit.

Leasing is a form of co-ownership, you only pay for what you use. Payments are based on the difference between the lease end value and the motorcycle cost plus lease finance charges. Taxes will be included in the monthly payment rather than the full cost of the motorcycle. Our motorcycle Lease Agreement is a full disclosure document and has been written in plain language.

With lower monthly lease payments over a shorter period of time, you can drive a new bike more often.

Low Monthly Payments
Lease payments are traditionally lower than retail payments on the same motorcycle.
Closed End Lease
At the completion of the lease, you can choose to purchase the motorcycle for a pre-determined price shown on your lease contract plus applicable taxes or return it without further obligation. If you decide to return your bike, all you have to do is make sure you have not exceeded your kilometer limit, that any outstanding fines have been paid, and there is no excess wear and tear on the motorcycle.
Honda Financial Services has no administration, early termination, end of lease or motorcycle disposal fees.
Automatic Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)
If your leased bike is involved in an accident, vandalized or stolen the bike may have to be written off. To insurance companies a "write off" means fair market value minus your deductible. Your insurance settlement may not always satisfy your monetary obligation. Our Future Value Lease offers you protection against these situations. The monetary GAP between your insurance settlement less your deductible and your lease obligation is covered automatically by our GAP. Some conditions may apply. See your local dealer for details.
Things to be considered
You are responsible for insurance coverage. Required coverage is detailed in your lease agreement.
Lease Down Payments
Down payments are not required on a lease. In a lease situation, you may choose to make a down payment in order to reduce the monthly lease payments. Down payments on leases cannot exceed 30% of the Total Lease Price.
Cash Due At Delivery
Most lease agreements require a first monthly payment on delivery of the motorcycle, a refundable security deposit and other miscellaneous fees.
You are responsible for maintaining the automobile. A maintenance schedule is outlined in the owner's manual.
Excessive Wear and Tear
If you are returning your motorcycle at lease end, your motorcycle will be inspected by your Honda Dealer to determine if there is any chargeable damage. Chargeable damage can include: dents, paint damage, missing equipment cracked or chipped glass, mechanical damage, holes, tears or burns to upholstery. You are responsible for either repairing identified damage to acceptable standards prior to returning the motorcycle or paying the amount indicated on the inspection report plus applicable taxes.
The yearly kilometer allowance with HFS is 20,000.
Leased motorcycle Price (Total motorcycle Price)
Gives you the transaction price and is also used to calculate your lease payment. While taxes are not included in this price, it does include all equipment, accessories, freight and dealership fees.
Total Cost of Lease Transaction
The total cost of lease is the total monthly payments plus any amounts paid to reduce the cost of the motorcycle ie: cash down payment, motorcycle trade-in plus applicable taxes, motorcycle licensing and registration fees.
Lease Rate Charges
The lease rate and associated charges are disclosed on our full disclosure contract.
