Harley Davidson Will Start Selling Bikes in India from 2010

August 27, 2009, By Atul Roach


A domestic slump in sales for the largest US Motorcycle manufacturer, the Milwaukee based Harley Davidson, has made it think about the emerging automotive markets of the world. India consequently becomes an important part of the expansion plans and therefore Harley Davidson has announced that it will start selling its motorcycles in India, beginning next year.

The iconic Milwaukee cruisers will be directly imported from the US alongwith the riding gear and the accessories for sales in India. Harley Davidson has already set up a unit in Gurgaon and is on the look out for direct dealers to assist sales.

Currently the dealerships will be set up in cities like Mumbai and Delhi (two major metropolitan centers) with an aim to float in demands for popular cruisers like the Fat Boy and Cross Bones.

Harley has appointed Anoop Prakash as the Managing director for its India Unit who will preside over the evolving plans over the next few years, eventually helping Harley to build a firm base in India. [via: Bloomberg]
