Harley Davidson have launched their first showroom in the country at Hyderabad. The showroom officially started its operations on the 9th July 2010. Hyderabad is known to be a city where the dwellers have an interest in higher capacity bikes. Even in the entry level commuter segment, more 125cc and 150cc bikes sell than the 100cc bikes that rule the roost in the rest of the country. Probably that’s one of the reasons why the American bike major chose the city to start their sales with. The name of the Harley-Davidson dealership in Hyderabad is Banjara Harley-Davidson. The company has also identified dealers in Delhi, Mumbai, Chandigarh and Bangalore.
