It has emerged that iconic American bike maker Harley Davidson might unveil its highly anticipated make in India model at the upcoming edition of EICMA, which will be held in Milan later this month.
The motorcycle maker has already confirmed that it has been busy with the development of a new motorcycle that will not just go on sale in India but will also be produced in our country. The upcoming Harley Davidson Made in India model will be built using a high percentage of locally sourced components, which would certainly help in pricing the bike ultra competitively.
It is expected that the bike would be powered by a 500cc Fuel Injected V Twin motor with approx 42 bhp of power and class leading torque output. The bike would be built at the manufacturer’s Bawal facility in Haryana. Currently, Harley Davidson India uses the Haryana based plant to assemble the models which come to us via CKD route.
It is being said that the upcoming Harley Davidson made in India 500cc motorcycle would have a sticker price of approx INR 4.25 lakhs and we feel that this would make life a lot more easier for those who have been wishing to enter the highly coveted Harley Davidson club.
As is pretty obvious, the upcoming Harley Davidson Made in India bike would be showcased at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo, which will be held in February next year and sales are likely to commence around September 2014. The made in India Harley Davidson will also be exported to other markets.
We are eagerly awaiting the launch of the Harley Davidson made in India bike. What about you?
Stay tuned to Motoroids for more updates on the upcoming bike.
