Iconic bike maker Harley Davidson has launched its 1,200cc superbike ‘Forty-Eight’ in India, priced at Rs. 8.5 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
This model will be available across all the Harley- Davidson dealerships, in addition to the existing model line- up of 14 bikes for 2011, Harley Davidson India said in a statement.
The company said bookings for the new offering will start from this month at its five dealerships across the country.
Recently Harley Davidson had said it would not hike prices of its two models to be assembled in India despite an increase in import duty for completely knocked down parts.
The company, which is setting up an assembly unit at Bawal in Haryana, had said it was evaluating options in the wake of the new CKD norms, resulting in higher import duty.
