At the 2012 Auto-Expo in India Harley-Davidson just announced that it is now assembling l;ocally 2 new models for this market , the FXDB Street Bob and FXDC Super Glide Custom. With the introduction of two more motorcycles in its CKD line-up (Complete Knock Down assembled locally from parts), the company now assembles five models out of its total line up of 15 bikes being offered in the country.
Immediately, Harley was able to lower prices by almost 35%. These 5 models were previously offered as CBU imports (Completely Built-up) whose prices were too high to be competitive. Currently, Harley-Davidson has sold about 1000 bikes in India and has a network of 7 dealers. Of course, to keep prices as low as possible in a very competitive market, expect all models sold in India and soon in Asia to be assembled locally. Harley-Davidson India.
