Harley-Davidson opens first outlet in India

Harley-Davidson, the US-based heavy weight bike maker, opened its first dealership outlet in the country here on Friday.



Hyderabad: Harley-Davidson, the US-based heavy weight bike maker, opened its first dealership outlet in the country here on Friday.

Though the company has identified dealers in Delhi, Mumbai, Chandigarh and Bangalore, the outlet here, Banjara Harley-Davidson, became the first to start operations.

"We will launch our bikes in other cities before the end of this year," said Anoop Prakash, managing director, Harley-Davidson India after the outlet was formally inaugurated by Telugu Film star NT Ramarao.

He said the bike is perfectly suitable for Indian roads due to its weight and ruggedness.

Speaking about the Indian market for heavy weight bikes, he said last year as many as 700 heavy bikes of all brands, excluding H-D were sold in the country.

Without revealing any figures, he said they made enough investments in the country to last for the next twenty years.
The company has launched 12 variants of the bikes in 883 cc to 1800 cc range in the Indian market.
The bikes cost anything between Rs 7 lakh and Rs 35 lakh.
