Harley Davidson Bikes plans in India

Harley-Davidson, the well-known American motorcycle manufacturer is planning to expand its operations in India. The Milwaukee-based motorcycle manufacturer is already in talks with the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) in India, with regard to securing permission for setting up its retail outlets in the country.

Among the company’s future launches in the country is an array of its models beginning with Fatboy, which would be imported as a Completely Built Unit (CBU), and is estimated to sport a price tag of over Rs. 20 lakh. At a later point of time, it may consider assembling its low-end Sportster 883 at its proposed greenfield assembly facility (in a CKD form), although the location has not yet been finalized.

This would be its third assembly unit in India after Singapore and Thailand. At the moment, it is scouting for an office in Gurgaon. It is widely believed that Harley's CBU imports are expected to come to India by end-2009, while the company may only start assembly of its bikes here by 2010-11.
