Polaris has rapidly set up itself in the quickly growing Indian All Terrain Vehicle market.
Well known ATV manufacturer is also the possessor of ‘Victory’ and Indian brand of bikes and the company has now came forth that the auto manufacturer might shortly roll out its first high end bike in Indian lifestyle motorcycle section.
The bike manufacturer also does custom motorcycles and in brief, Victory is a straight competitor of the cruiser motorcycles on sale by Harley Davidson, Hyosung, Honda and Suzuki even though without a long record.
As per recent reports, the company is ready to roll out the Victory brand during late 2013.
Mr. Pankaj Dubey, Managing Director and nation head of the firm stated, “Yes we have determined to roll out in the market by this year end“.
But, Mr. Pankaj Dubey said no to throw light on the retail plan to be followed or the values targeted.
Victory bikes could introduce its cruisers to go up against the likes of Harley Davidsons. It would be tough for the product to take over Harley Davidson in the Indian market since it has a local assembly division in order to make the most of tax advantages.
The Victory bike that the company proposes to roll out in the ever growing Indian motorcycle market will come to us through completely built unit (CBU) path and will carry a price label of approximately INR 12 lakhs. The rough calculation arrives from the truth that the cheapest Victory bike available in the US market is valued around INR 6 lakhs.
Catering the Victory bikes is a 1,731cc V-Twin engines, which is coupled to a six pace manual gear cases. The V-double motor is laden with traits like such as adjusting cam chains, hydraulic lifters, electronic fuel injection in addition to an SOHC/4 valves per cylinder arrangement. Victory bikes feature a carbon fiber shatterproof belt drive, which sends out all the control to the back wheel.
