But, at the present time all 6 of Harley Davidson motorcycles are getting assembled, and other motorcycles are arriving as completely built unit.
While talking to media, Mr. Anoop Prakash, Harley Davidson India Managing Director stated, “We are eyeing to swell our dealer system. At present, we boast 9 showrooms and 2012 end, we will add one more and by 2013, we will include 3 more in the cities comprising Pune, Jaipur and Indore.”
Mr. Anoop stated that Harley Davidson has taken a conscious conclusion to spread attendance in the tier II cities as there is a concealed demand for company’s motorcycles.
“We are seeing a positive response in smaller towns. The type of eagerness we had bagged in a place like Kochi was the same as in any metro,” Mr. Prakash added up.
There was a wonderful reaction when the firm arranged the Harley Rock Riders show in regions such as Shillong and Guwahati.
Mr. Anoop also said that Harley Davidson will register more than 2,000 units by 2012 end as collective sales since it commenced selling its motorcycles in the Indian market during July 2010.
