Harley Davidson does not plan on stopping for a rest, their journey just begun in India. As I have said before that the competition is heating up between rivals. Fat Boy, Fat Boy Special and Heritage Softail Classic are the 3 new bikes that will be made at Bawal facility in Haryana, India. Building the 3 new bikes in India should drive the price of HD motorcycles down.
For example the Indian built Fat Boy will be available for $27,245 instead of $35,565. A big difference, between United States market and India market. I am starting to think that more people will start buying at India, and than just importing bikes to US. Since the bike is $27,245 and the import from India costs around $3,000. A saving of almost $5,000 in your pocket, I would definitely try this option or calculate first before buying an HD here.
The prices seem huge for India, but in addition to that Indian import duties for bikes over 800cc are 75%, a proposed reduction to 60%. Either way you may want to reconsider where to purchase your next motorcycle from Harley Davidson. The other two motorcycles Fat Boy Special will be $28,525 instead of $36,565, and Heritage Softail Classic will be available for $29,715 instead of $37,390. As you see the price difference between United States and India is huge.
