World’s First Compact Diagnostic Tool for Harley-Davidson® Motorcycles on Display at 2017 SEMA Show


Lake Villa, Illinois and Massapequa, New York – October 27, 2017 – Smart Vehicle Diagnostics LLC, a creator of unique diagnostic tools for automobiles, trucks and powersports vehicles, and Strategic Tools & Equipment Company, a supplier of high-quality diagnostic, hand, power, and specialty tools for automotive and industrial markets, announced today that they will showcase the Motorscan® smartphone diagnostics adapters for Harley-Davidson® motorcycles at the 2017 SEMA Show. Featuring a patent-pending design, Motorscan adapters create a new class of “plug & leave” motorcycle diagnostic tools. The tiny adapters work on the majority of Harley-Davidson motorcycles manufactured from 2001 to 2017. Future software updates will extend the compatibility to newer models. The free smartphone app is available for Android phones and iPhones.

The Motorscan adapter plugs into a motorcycle’s diagnostic port and can be left there indefinitely, saving riders the trouble of removing side panels and saddle bags every time they want to run diagnostic on their bike. Using the Motorscan app, a bike owner can read trouble codes and conditions with detailed descriptions, clear the check engine light, access information on various bike systems, from the electronic control unit (ECU) to the dashboard, see data parameters, view virtual gauges, and more. Bike owners can easily save diagnostic reports and email them to their trusted mechanic or a local dealership with a touch of a button.

“Car drivers have been using compact OBD devices and enjoying the benefits for years,” said Alex Leonov, Managing Partner at Smart Vehicle Diagnostics LLC. “Yet nothing like that existed for motorcycles. We invented the Motorscan personal diagnostic tool that riders plug in and leave, giving Harley owners the ability to monitor their bike’s health on demand when paired with a smartphone app. Riders can know what’s going on with a bike at any given moment with a swipe on their smartphone. If a Check Engine light comes on when on the road, run a full diagnostic report and email it to a trusted dealership for a second opinion before possibly getting upsold on unnecessary repairs at an unknown shop. The Motorscan device not only transforms a smartphone into a powerful diagnostic tool, it gives bike owners peace of mind.”

“Smart Vehicle Diagnostics created a groundbreaking product ushering in an entirely new class of diagnostic devices for motorcycles,” said Alan Hill, President of Strategic Tools & Equipment Company. “We are proud to be their partner and display Motorscan smartphone diagnostic tools for Harleys at our booth at the SEMA show. At Strategic Tools, we are dedicated to creating unique tools that address an unmet need in the market, and we look forward to presenting the Motorscan device to the SEMA show audience.”

There are two types of adapters available. The MSDKHD4 4-pin adapter is compatible with older models with Delphi engine control units and 4-pin J1850 OBD connectors. The MSDKHD6 6-pin adapter works with most of the newer CAN-Bus Harley-Davidson bikes with 6-pin OBD connectors. You can check a motorcycle’s compatibility and learn more about the product at The products will be on display at the booth # 10328 in the North Hall at 2017 SEMA Show.
